Iakov is a career criminal with a love of drinking and card playing, always interested in a buck or interesting bit of resources. He was born is Soviet Russia in 1970, born to a poor working family. He is boorish and unrefined, though loyal to his friends. He has issues with legal authority.

As kinfolk, Iakov became used to rats at a very young age, as well as to the ways of the Ratkin. He worked grey market jobs until his early teens, then working as a smuggler and courier for small and medium crooks into his late teens.

In 1987, with border not yet relaxed to the rest of the world, Iakov was picked up the Soviet authorities attempting to smuggle contraband from Europe into the country and he was arrested and detained. Unfortunately, deep government corruption on the border and back alley deals ended with Iakov essentially sold to as a lab specimen. It was figured that no one would one more small time crook. The testing facility kept Iakov for over a year before it was eventually attacked and destroyed by Garou or Fera, as its experiments bore a strong wyrm taint. Iakov escaped along with many of the animal research subject, and was able to link up with Ratkin. Shortly after his escape, he fell ill and was subjected to the birthing plague.

Вещи Вы сказали/Stuff you said

  • "There is a catch or be caught element about him that makes me desire to remove him from the villainy and scum he has come to know. But it is naievity not to know that it is of his own design, and he would be the same creature outside of his environment. What an odd friend he is..." - Sylvi Anker
  • "He has always treated me with a certain respect, despite my child-like appearance when he and I first met. I'm not sure if Dyadya Iakov is a beneficial influence or a corrupt one, but one thing he will never be is boring." - Tenebrous Harmony
  • "No better partner in making things that are in one place no longer be in that place. He may look rather drab, but he has the best pockets!" - Hereandthere
  • "We go back a bit, and though we may have fallen out of touch for a while, getting to reconnect is something I'm glad we got around to. He understands the conflict that the Garou and Fera face with working together now, and has the wisdom to see where things will have to shift and be made to work on both sides. Knowing I can rely on him is one of those comforts that's hard to put into words." - Madison Walsh
  • "I find him funny. I enjoy his company. He also swears that his wine is best... And, I agree." - Elizabeth Tvarivich
  • "I like this 'Dirty Rat', we did good work together. Still, you ever wonder what he's hiding under that coat?" Faster than traffic
    • "Wine. I am hiding wine."
  • "You know... I haven't really seen Iakov upset before. Until someone spilled his wine..." - Elizabeth Tvarivich
  • "It is mighty impressive, the size of his pockets!” - Smooth Operator
  • "I wasn’t really looking for anything when Iakov crossed my path. But I was immediately intrigued. He is funny and unassuming, oh so handsome, and I took a chance. Gaia, did we both luck out! He’s such great company and open for adventures and we have such compatible temperaments. We are a good team. I have a big heart and it’s full of love for him. I choose you every time, my love.” - January Fairbanks
    • "Hyperbeam!" - Iakov
