Bio:

Named for a biblical character of some significance as well as the fact that the name means ‘companion’ in Hebrew, Jake’s trusty ‘rifled shotgun’, as he prefers to call it, has saved his and the party’s lives more than once. In the time he’s been with the auto-engine posse, we’s gone through nearly two boxes of shells, most of which was expended upon Prarie Ticks at one time or another. Belle is known to have a special dislike in her heart for Ruth, as Jake once shot a Prarie Tick clean off of her face with the weapon – a hair in any direction, and the Texan would have hit the girl, not the bug.

Ruth spent several months in a Wells-Fargo safe when the party boarded the Mary Belle, for weapons were not allowed aboard. As such, during the long recovery from the riverboat’s sinking, and longer travel back to Denver, Jake had to ‘make due’ with the Professor’s spare piece – something he was not at all comfortable with. Fortunately, he was not called upon often to use the borrowed arm.

Jake’s had Ruth in Bethesda’s saddle-scabbard since returning to Denver, and he does not plan on parting with the weapon anytime soon.
