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 Brad Pitt which had been "both a blessing and a curse over the years".
Working closely with Jacobs is a small group of dedicated friends and co-fighters. Together they call themselves Team Dallas. The two of most interest (to me) are:
Mason Ving: Former Force Recon Marine who had been for a while the sergeant to Jacobs' lance corporal, and Jacob's best friend. He was the "largest, meanest looking black man [Jacobs] had seen in his life. The man was ... a shade over six feet tall with skin so black it seemed to have blue highlights. ... He was completely bald. His utilities had obviously been tailored to fit his massive frame because his waist looked to be as narrow as Jacobs' while his chest was absolutely huge". Like Jacobs, Ving is also certified to wear the prestigious golden parachutist wings and the silver Scuba badge.
Jessica Paul: Jacob's cousin and by far his favorite relative. "They grew up together, and she was more like a little sister than a cousin. She was the only family member who had stayed in close contact with him during his fifteen years in the military". She is described as being a "beautiful, athletic woman [who] was an adventuress with mad skills".
