Jacob has always been a hardworking boy with a dream to leave his hometown and journey the world. He's a people pleaser, always doing his best to ensure others are happy, sometimes at the cost of some of his happiness. None the less, Jacob knows how to make the most out of a bad situation and always tries to do his best in everything he does.
Moderately intelligent and stronger than a tauros, Jacob can do just about anything, but his obedient ways and quiet tendencies often get him into awkward situations. History: Jacob was born and raised in the Scorpion's pit by Noel and Lela Pain along side his brothers. His older brother, Jeffery, became a nurse and does field work in the mines, helping to rescue and help miners who are injured on the job. Their younger brother, Micheal, is now twelve, and is still in school. Jacob's father was the tireless town blacksmith who worked every day and pinched every penny. He was hard on his children and expected only the greatest out of them; creating different outlooks and paths for his children. Jeffery became the family rebel, and left the home at the age of fifteen to pursue his dream of being a nurse; Jacob becoming the family mule, always doing as he's told and never questioning his father's authority; and Micheal becoming the only one who enjoyed an okay childhood, getting straight A's and almost always getting what he wanted. All had a different way of looking at the world, and each of them had a different ambition. Jacob wanted to leave his home and journey all over the world, but he kept his dream to himself, fearing his father's disappointment.
Then, one day, a fire started in the workshop with Jacob and his father inside. The event not only badly burned Jacob's right leg, but it also killed his father. The horrific event destroyed the workshop and crushed the family. They felt as if the volcano itself was in shock at the events that occurred in the Pain household that day.
After Noel's death, Jeffery took time off work to help rebuild the workshop with Jacob. Jacob was to take over as the new towns blacksmith, but when the funeral was held for their father, Jacob's Uncle came forth with Noel's Will, which gave the workshop to Lela and a hefty sum of money to each of his sons. It was then that Jacob decided that it was time for him to fallow his dream. With his father's money and some help from his Uncle, who specialized in long distance transportation all over the Borealis Region, Jacob traveled to Situla town to hopefully begin his adventure.

Young and full of energy, Noel tries to be more of a bouncy Growlithe than a Torkoal. But his heavy shell and flat feet wont stop him from doing what he wants! Either it be running at a solid 10 mph or taking on an overpowered water type, Noel will always have a smile on his face.
