Brad Jacobs is a bounty-hunter.
He is also an ex-Marine and as they say, 'once a Marine, always a Marine', something Jacobs will prove over and again during the several recorded adventures we have of him. Joining him on some of these adventures will be other ex-Marines and when trouble comes upon several Marines, ex or not, trouble does not walk away untouched.
We learn early on that he joined the Marines right out of high school because his deceased father, who he respected a good deal, had been a Marine and had died in the first Gulf War. He would go on to become the best of the best by making into the elite Force Recon and served there for almost two decades. After getting out he worked for a short while as a military contractor but did not enjoy it so switched to something he was better at.
That something was finding people. He was quite good at it. And when those people who had gone missing, or worse yet, been taken missing, were in foreign countries where either the authorities were unable to help, unwilling to help, or were part of the taking, the finding had to become the rescuing. That was something else Jacobs was very good at especially when he could call upon a couple of other fellow ex-Marines.
So the sorts of adventures that Jacobs has usually involves heading to other nations in search of missing or kidnapped people and convincing any one in the way that it was not in their best interests to remain so.
Jacobs is described early on as 36 years old, 6'2" tall "with a muscular build and a blond military style buzz cut", having a lantern jaw, green eyes, and a self-confident demeanor. It was also mentioned that he had a "strong physical resemblance" to actor Bradd Pitt which had been "both a blessing and a curse over the years".
