"Persuasion is often more effectual than force." Aesop

One must therefore be a fox to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten wolves.
Nicolo Machiavelli


Jacob Hobbes is a private man but he excels in public relations. A very promising agent of Division, he was recruited at a young age. He works as a black ops spy and assassin currently stationed within New York City with an undercover identity. Due to a previous injury, he has been pulled from deep-cover assignments while recuperating and performing local tasks.



Though he could be described in many fashions given his position within Division, Hobbes is above all else smooth, confident, and intelligent. He's personable and a social butterfly, extroverted and conscientious, with the innate ability to manipulate words and emotions around him. He's both kind and humble at times, passionate and irrevocably charming at others. Then again, he is also paranoid and ultimately a private individual.

Hobbes is a driven man. He strives for control. Honest and straight-forward, he can also be pedantic; but he is a confident conversationalist above all else. Quirks include his regular smoking habits and rather than use a conventional lighter he would instead carry a box of matches. His favorite color is blue and he loves food, homecooked meals particularly. He dabbles as a florist and dislikes coffee.


According to the Myers-Briggs (Jung) Typology test, Hobbes is an ESFJ, commonly known as Providers.

Extraverted: 61 Sensing: 55 Feeling: 65 Judging: 82
Introverted: 39 Intuitive: 45 Thinking: 35 Percieving: 18

Providers are observant, cooperative, informative, and expressive. They are often skilled at bringing out the best in people, and they want to understand other points of view. They are serious about their responsibilities, seeing what needs to be done and then doing it. Generally proficient at detailed tasks, they enjoy doing little things that make life easier for others. Strong, contradictory forces consume the ESFJ. Their sense of right and wrong wrestles with an overwhelming rescuing, 'mothering' drive.

Men never do good unless necessity drives them to it; but when they are free to choose and can do just as they please, confusion and disorder become rampant.
Nicolo Machiavelli

One Shot, One Kill: Towards the end of February, 2011, Hobbes and Crewe were tasked by Division with an international mission to assassinate a supporting member of Muammar Gaddafi during the 2011 Libyan civil war, covertly infiltrating the country and completing their goal by any means necessary. This is their story.

Watch For

Hobbes owns a Ducati 1198SP for private transport. It's a bright red. He also rents an apartment space in the Village thanks to Division and to support his cover identity as a librarian. Speaking of, he works at a public library in the city. It happens to be the Muhlenberg Library at 209 West 23rd Street (near Seventh Ave.) within Manhattan's Flatiron District.


crewe.jpg Jessica Crewe: A fellow Division agent, the two of them have a pretty strong rapport due to working together and being stationed in the same city. In another life, they could just be friends, maybe more.
mickey.jpg Mickey Lynch: Mickey is like that puppy that's too big and too naive for its own good. He's a good kid though. Hobbes hopes he turns out better than first impressions dictate.
alex.jpg Alex Smith: A Division recruit, she's something of a model recruit if Hobbes were ever asked of his opinion of the girl. That same outlook may be what has her catching Michael's attention.
dahlia.jpg Dahlia Smith: Bizarre. He won't let her catch him off-guard again and he's already stepped up to keep her from getting canceled once. Time will only tell if either happens again. Hobbes assumes they will.
