Jacob was a wizard who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry circa the 1970s or early 1980s.


Jacob was born in Great Britain or Ireland circa the 1960s or 1970s. He had at least one younger sibling.

At age eleven, he went to Ollivander's in Diagon Alley, and caused Mr Olivander's inkpot to explode when trying out wands. He attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for an unknown period of time and was sorted into an unknown house.

However, at some point Jacob began searching for the Cursed Vaults, and in the process he broke school rules. This resulted in him being expelled. He ran away from home afterwards. His expulsion was covered in the Daily Prophet.

It was widely believed that Jacob joined Lord Voldemort following his disappearance. When his younger sibling eventually attended Hogwarts, they ended up being sorted into the same house he was, and were haunted by his negative reputation.
