Born in Los Diablos, Lakeside Jake Sullivan never knew his real parents. He grew up in various foster homes when he was abandoned as a child and he never obeyed anyone as a child and had the urge to always be in control. He has a fascination with fire and killing animals from a young age with unsettled many of the foster parents who took care of Jake. Most of the foster parents did not know how to deal with him so he would simply be relocated to a new home because no one could provide sufficient care for him. In his teenage years Jake was able to commit a number of murders on his fellow foster children, but was able to make them look like complete accidents. He had an ability to manipulate people which he began to use to steer away any possible accusations and he simply was able to get away with this. Jake's ego grew and grew as he was able to commit more and more acts almost viewing himself as a god. As soon as Jake was 18 and free from the State's care he joined the infamous Los Diablos Cartel. He quickly gained the respect of his gang members for his lack of hesitance to kill anyone who stood in the way of the gang. He quickly rose the ranks and by the time he was 22 he had become one of the leaders of the gang. Through his years in the gang they had struck fear into the hearts of all citizens within Lakeside and had dominated the entire drug trade. The State feared the gang could potentially overthrow the government and requested federal assistance. This forced Jake and many of his gang members to leave the country many of which were quickly separately as they jumped country to country trying to evade chance of extradition. After about a year of evading law enforcement Jake found himself in Chernarus a place that at the time would not extradite criminals back to the United States. Jake lived in his own secluded home in the woods for about 2 years and murdered random travelers as they passed through because he still had this burning passion for blood, in a way Jake is a serial killer who just had greater means of murder then most because of the power he held with his gang in the past, but now he was left to kill by himself. However, when the zombie outbreak occurred Jake was angry not because the world was coming to an end, but because he was unable to easily find targets for his murders because the population had turned into zombies. Jake needed to know they endured pain when he killed them and he could not get that satisfaction from killing zombies which were empty shells of humans. Jake then made it his mission to recruit new members and even reconnect with old members to create a gang similar to the one he had in Lakeside. He knew by himself it would be much more difficult to cause the pain the drove him, but that he need a group so that together they could kill.
