Jake Barnes was a kid who proclaimed that he wasn't afraid of anything. He owned a pet mouse named Luthor that he was using to scare Shirley Zigler. When Shirley lost Luthor he pulled a prank on her and took her down into the basement in Whit's End. However, it backfired and he injured himself and needed Shirley to save him, though Whit later came down after returning from a meeting. It was later mentioned that he was grounded for his prank.
Whit mentions he has a father.
