↳ GET IN LOSER, WE’RE GOING BACKGROUND HUNTING

Jake Martin, a man of many words, most of which can often cause him to get into a fight because he doesn’t know when to shut his mouth. There are plenty of ways to describe him. Some people often dub him to be an environmental enthusiast due to his love of all things nature, considering him and his dad often never stayed in one place for too long. Jake had the privilege of seeing most of the world at a young age because of this. It wasn’t until Glen decided one night when Jake was twelve years old to settle into Toronto. From there on Toronto is what Jake considers home. 

As of lately, Jake has been blowing off his classes, keeping his distance from others. No one knows what is currently going on but when someone wants to head over to his house, Jake instantly makes up an excuse as to why someone can’t come over. Lately, he’s been turning to marijuana more to keep himself from facing the reality of his situation. Will Jake come down long enough to keep him off the plastic’s radar or will he just be lost in a haze?

↳ LET THE BURN BOOK KNOW ALL OF YOUR SECRETS

1) The reason Jake hasn’t been anyone come near his home is because he doesn’t have a home. Jake is homeless and often finds himself looking for new places to sleep. His current place of residence is sleeping in an abandoned performing arts venue. Recently the Coyne family has bought the venue to create more apartment complexes so Jake is currently trying his best to find a new living arrangement. 

2) The only reason why Jake has moved around so much is because his father Glen is a con person. Glen knows how to smooth talk every operation and sometimes things can get a bit messy. Especially since Glen likes to send men after people who wronged him. Because of his father, Jake’s mom left the family with his younger brother years ago. Jake currently likes to lie about his father being a great man because the last thing people need to know is that his father is an alcoholic. 

↳ RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU HAVE EVER BEEN PERSONALLY VICTIMIZED BY JAKE MARTIN

Adam Torres: Jake and Adam share homeroom together and they often get along with one another. Even though they often avoid the subject about Drew, considering Drew was once Jake’s best friend. As of lately, Jake is finding it harder to confide in Adam because he fears that Adam will tell Drew about his situation. 

Anya MacPherson: Jake once was lead on by Anya as a way for the Plastics to see which loser they could have brought to junior prom. Luckily Jake immediately knew Anya was only doing this to please Holly J. The two remain friends in secret. 

Imogen Moreno: Imogen and Jake have started seeing each other over the summer and decided to start dating. However, with Jake’s situation his girlfriend Imogen becomes more concerned about what is currently happening to her boyfriend. While Jake fears if Imogen were to know about his current situation and home life that she would view him as a completely different person.

Miles Hollingsworth: They were once a former fling, although Jake would never admit that he experimented with Miles. The relationship ended badly because Jake never wanted to go public about being bisexual while Miles was comfortable with who he was. Ever since their break up, the two just exchange awkward glances when walking the halls.
