Jake is a act first, think later kind of guy. He sometimes finds himself outwitted by some people and finds himself in odd situations. He doesn't mind the odd pint here and there. Jake is also quite the brawler as he seems to find himself in fights with other people. Although it sometimes ends with him getting kicked in the nuts or hit over the head.
Jake is a bit of a ladies man and is constantly getting himself with trouble. At the beginning, Jake couldn't say no to a pretty face, and is constantly flirting with any beautiful women. Malachy states that he sleeps with every women that attracts him. Jake also enjoyed the odd fling here and there.
