A mercenary by trade, having been one for five years since he was 15, Jake was originally trying to save up to help his mother. She dies before the events of Resident Evil 6, however, though Jake still chooses to continue on as a soldier of fortune regardless. He never knew his father Albert, but this direct relation to Wesker has granted Jake the gift of immunity to viruses, and his blood is as such highly valuable to a lot of people.
Because of both Chris Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy's age rapidly catching up to them, CAPCOM saw fit to conceptualize Jake as a much younger and agile protagonist to even the age spectrum of heroes.
