Priest Jacob is a survivor of the initial zombie apocalypse and an antagonistic character in Z Nation. He is first encountered in Season 1 Episode 6 "Resurrection Z".

Post-Apocalypse Edit

He was a part of Major Joe William's camp Province Town in Hannibal, Missouri before defecting and starting his own religious cult: The Resurrection Cult.

Believing that the zombies were resurrected and close to heaven, he created a church around them. Taking shelter in an abandoned church he rang the bell to have more zombies come and be part of his "flock". He also convinced three people from Province town to commit suicide inside the camp, only to open the doors for Jacob and his group. After taking over Province town, he had people choose if they wanted to become followers or be killed and turned into zombies.

When threatening Charles Garnett, Murphy steps forward and claims to be the new Messiah. Jacobs followers starts to doubt Jacob and in panic he turns his gun on Murphy. Garnett then jumps in front of the bullet and is killed instead.

Death Edit

He is eventually shot by Roberta Warren in the stomach. He then turns and proceeds to eat the rest of his living "flock."

Background Edit

Nothing is known of his background prior to the apocalypse.
