SPECIAL POWERS AND SKILLS
Fighting Skills: Superhuman: L-7. When influenced by the Holy Spirit, Jake is a lethal fighting machine, though he avoids situations where he is forced to put this into practice.
Spontaneous Teleportation: Divine: L-10. The “taking away” of Jake from one location to another is hardly within his own control and is determined by the will of God.
Prophecy/Precognition: Supreme: L-10. Jake is slow to recognize it, but he frequently has prophetic dreams and visions of events that have yet to occur. With the Spirit of God on him, Jake has the gift of prophecy, though he rarely understands it.
Must Breath Oxygenated Air: Fatal: L-10: Although Jacob can hold his breath for an extended amount of time, he is still mortal and does eventually have to take a breath.
1) Lack of Faith in God: Dangerous: L-4. Jake professes to be an unbeliever in the God of the Jews and the Christians (or any other religion for that matter), although he is well educated in Hebrew doctrine. His lack of faith inhibits him from being as effective a servant of Almighty God as he could be.
2) Breaking the Vow of the Nazirite: Hazardous: L-5. Jake is under an involuntary vow, which requires him to not cut his hair, not touch a dead body, and not consume anything fermented (among other stipulations). Breaking this vow is not debilitating, but unless he shaves his head and starts fresh, he THINKS that he cannot be a Nazirite anymore. Ironically, this idea appeals to him.
3) Must Breath Air: Fatal: L-10: Jake must breath Oxygenated Air or he will ultimately suffocate. As the Nazirite, he can hold his breath for an unknown extended period of time, but eventually will need to take a breath.
