History

In the Super Edition Arc

Tallstar's Revenge

Jake is first introduced when Talltail finds him cornered by a dog somewhere in the Twolegplace. Talltail jumps on the dog's back, giving Jake just the edge he needs to win the fight. After the dog runs away, Jake recognizes Talltail as a Clan cat, but mistakes him for ThunderClan, not knowing that there is more than one Clan. Talltail leaves Jake with a warning to be more wary of dogs in the future.
He runs into Jake again the next day after getting sick from eating a poisoned rat. Jake runs to get some help and returns with his housefolk. When Talltail wakes up after being rescued, Jake reassures him that he is safe. Jake explains that he faked a bellyache to get their attention, then led them to where Talltail was. He also talks about the vet. Jake tells Talltail that the water and food his housefolk brought is safe to drink and eat. Then he leaves the room.
Jake comes in later to eat. His housefolk give Talltail some food and Jake tells him to eat it. Jake stays with him the rest of the day. When his owner lets Talltail out of the "vet basket", Talltail hisses at him, but Jake defends his housefolk. Talltail complains that the Twoleg is cruel to keep him trapped in his den, but Jake once again defends his housefolk's actions. Jake talks about how he communicates with his Twoleg. He just says "yes" to everything because he can't quite understand what his Twoleg is saying. He taught his Twoleg the word for food, and Jake says that he sometimes tries to say it, but his accent is terrible.
The conversation then changes to Clans and Jake asks Talltail some questions. Jake is quite in awe to be spending time with an actual warrior. Eventually, when hearing of his mission, Jake wants to go with Talltail and help him with it. Talltail refuses, not wanting help from a kittypet. However, Jake convinces to let him come along just as a guide to help him in Twolegplace.
Jake and Talltail start their mission. On the way though the Twolegplace they meet another kittypet, Quince. They meet a Thunderpath but Talltail sensed that a dog was near them but Jake knew that the dog was there and it happens every time.
Jake talks about a cat knows everything in their area. Then they meet up with some cats that are hostile. The hostile cats take Talltail and Jake to Jay, the cat who knows everything. One of those hostile cats is Red, also known as Russetfur later in the books.

Bluestar's Prophecy

Bluepaw sees him while hunting, sitting on a fence on the edge of Twolegplace. The ginger cat offers a friendly greeting and asks if Bluepaw is a forest cat. Although Bluepaw is reluctant to speak to him, Jake still continues his tirade of questions, confusing the blue-gray she-cat. A plump gray she-cat joins Jake on the fence, and soon Pinestar arrives and scolds Bluepaw for talking to the kittypets. As Bluepaw leaves, Jake says his farewell and offers to let Bluepaw into his nest next time he sees her.
Bluefur thinks of Jake later on, when Sunfall mentions an increase in kittypet scents around ThunderClan's border.
Bluefur finds Pinestar speaking with Jake later on, discovering that the leader is inquiring about kittypet life.
Later on at a Gathering, Cedarstar mentions an oddly adventurous ginger kittypet that had been trespassing in ShadowClan territory, causing Bluefur to think of Jake.
Bluefur continues worrying about Pinestar's interest in Jake, and is constantly suspicious that Pinestar is with the ginger kittypet when he goes missing several times.
Bluefur thinks of Jake one last time when she sees his fence while out hunting with Thrushpelt.

In the Original Arc

Into the Wild

When Firepaw is talking to Yellowfang, he tells her that both of his parents are kittypets, confirming the elder cat's suspicions of Firepaw's heritage. Although unnamed, this is alluding to Jake and his mate, Nutmeg.

In the Stand-Alone Manga

The Rise of Scourge

He is mentioned briefly, though not by name, when Quince looks at a photograph of Jake and murmurs to herself that it is strange that neither Ruby, Socks, or Tiny have his ginger fur, but she sees the same spirit in them as him. He is mentioned not by name by Quince, when Tiny asked if she knew anything about the forest. She said that his father explored there couple of times and told her about it.

Trivia

  • Vicky confirmed that Jake was Firestar's father. This was suspected for a long time by the fandom, taking in account Jake's pelt color, interest in the forest, and the fact that he was seen near a gray she-cat, who could have been Quince.[9] This is backed up within the storyline of Tallstar's Revenge, directly stating that Jake is Firestar's father.[10]
    • Moreover, Jake is also the father of Scourge, making Scourge and Firestar half-brothers.[11]
  • On her Facebook page, Vicky stated that Jake was killed when he was struck by a meteorite while sitting on a fence.[12] However, she later clarified that it was indeed a joke.[13]
  • Kate thinks Tallstar goes out of StarClan to visit Jake.[14]
  • He is noted to look exactly like his son, Firestar.[10]
  • Tallstar's heart always belonged to Jake.[15]

Quotes

"Just because I'm a kittypet doesn't mean I don't have dreams of something else. I don't want to spend my whole life in the wild, but I'd like to explore beyond the fences, see how other cats live. I know every pawstep of the house-folk place and I'd like to go farther."
—Jake to Talltail Tallstar's Revenge, page 335


Reena: "Aren't you embarrassed?"
Jake: "Embarrased?"
Reena: "About being a kittypet."
Jake: "Why?"
Reena: "Taking food from a Twoleg. It's undignified for a cat."
Jake: "It is?"
Reena: "A cat should rely on itself, not the kindness of Twolegs."
Jake: "I was born a kittypet. I'm not doing any harm. And if I'm eating kittypet food, it means there's more prey for rogues like you."
—Jake and Reena over being a kittypet Tallstar's Revenge, page 394


Jake: "Do you really want to kill a cat?"
Talltail: "If I'd stayed in WindClan, I'd have probably killed a cat in battle by now!"
Jake: "In battle. That's different. Killing in the heat of battle, to defend your Clanmates---that makes sense. But to kill a cat moons later--"
Talltail: "He never understood the damage he did. That's why he must be punished. To make him sorry."
Jake: "Just tell him! Make him understand. How Sandgorse's death hurt you, and how feel he's responsible."
Talltail: "Don't you think I tried that when Sandgorse died? He wouldn't admit it. Even when I told him to his whiskers that he killed Sandgorse, he just shrugged it off, like he shrugs everything off. He doesn't care about anything. So I'm going to make him care about this."
Jake: "By killing him? I know you, Talltail. You're not a killer. You'd die to defend those you love. But to kill a cat you hardly know? I don't think so."
—Jake arguing with Talltail over killing Sparrow Tallstar's Revenge, pages 404-405


"Jake didn't look like he could win a fight with a mouse."
—Bluefur's thoughts on Jake Bluestar's Prophecy, page 220


"You would have been proud of your kits, my love. Strange that none of them have your ginger fur... But I see your spirit in them just the same."
—Quince about Jake The Rise of Scourge, page 13
