Jacob Houwdegen is the deceased fourth son of Count Radbout Houwdegen and the third son of Royal Consort Samantha. He has two brothers Henry en Petrus and a half-brother Phillip. Before his death he was engaged with Olive Specter.
Child- and Adulthood in The Sims MedievalEdit
Jacob didn't care much about the loss of his royal title. He was the only brother who could forgive his father's deeds, mainly because his character was exactly the same as his father's. At an older age Jacob became also interested in women just like his father. That's the reason why he never married.
Adulthood in The Sims 2Edit
Loki Beaker invented a Time Machine, but the test failed and turned out into a disaster. Jacob, Henry, Petrus and Phillip appeared in Loki's laboratory. The medieval brothers didn't know what happened. First, there were celebrating Petrus's engagement and then they appeared in a strange room. Loki had been observating them for a few months. After they learned about 'the new word', they left Loki's laboratory and bought a house in Strangetown.
Jacob liked the women of 'the new word'. They were more beautiful then medieval women and Jacob wanted to be a rich Don Juan. So, Jacob needed money. He met the old and rich Olive Specter and he started to date with her. Olive got in love with Jacob at their first date at 94 Road to Nowhere. Jacob and Olvie woohoo'ed and were even engaged at their second date at the same place. However, Jacob didn't love Olive and he dated other women. Phillip discovered that Jacob cheated Olive and he argued a lot with him. Phillip told everything to Olive the night before the marriage. Jacob went to Olive to marry and died later. He was frightened to the death. Nobody knows why...
The brothers were upset about Jacob's death, even Phillip. However, Phillip thought he was responsible for his brother's death and he moved out.
