Jacob[1] (simply called Van Graff thug in-game) was a former guard for the Van Graff family living in Freeside.


Jacob was one of many guards employed by the Van Graffs at the Silver Rush. For a time, he and Gloria Van Graff, his boss and owner of the Silver Rush, were a couple. That was until Gloria found him at Gomorrah employing one the prostitutes. Afterward, Gloria kidnapped him and kept him in the Silver Rush to then use as a test to show the effectiveness of their energy weapons to Mister Soren.[2] Jacob was also stealing caps from the Van Graffs behind the backs of his bosses. Gloria knew of this but didn't punish him until he slept with another woman.[3]

  1. Jean-Baptiste Cutting: "Ha ha, I think he wet himself before he left. That was pretty good making up that part about sleeping with Jacob."
    (Jean-Baptiste Cutting's dialogue)
  2. Gloria Van Graff: "Everything. Up until recently, this man was an employee of mine. He's quite handsome, don't you think? I know I did. We became... close. I warned him that I was a very jealous woman, and he said he understood. Apparently he didn't. Last week, I chanced upon him in Gomorrah, being serviced by one of their two-cap whores. I was not pleased."
    (Gloria Van Graff's dialogue)
  3. Jean-Baptiste Cutting: "Damn it, girl, what has mama always said about tipping the help? I thought this was about him stealing money from us."
    Gloria Van Graff: "He was stealing money, though he could have kept it for all I cared. God knows he earned it."
    (Jean-Baptiste Cutting's dialogue and Gloria Van Graff's dialogue)
