This article is about the TV Series character, you may be looking for the Film character - Jacob Fuller.
Jacob Fuller was a main character who first appeared in the second episode of the first season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series. He was the father of Kate Fuller, adopted father of Scott Fuller, and widower of Jennifer Fuller.
Jacob was a husband to Jennifer Fuller, father to Kate Fuller, and adopted father to Scott Fuller. His daughter Kate is older than his adopted son by a few years, as he already had a child before the adoption was made.
Jacob and his family lived a seemingly peaceful existence on the outside, almost portraying a perfect family, but as later revealed, was torn apart by his wife's depression and suicidal thoughts. Jacob, being a man of faith, believed in leaving the mental health of his wife in the hands of God, ultimately leading to her eventual suicide through the use of prescription pills.
As Jacob was in the car with his wife, rushing to the hospital, Jennifer attempted to escape the car, and Jacob, trying to pull her back in, swerved off of the road, causing the vehicle to flip and crash on the side of the street. Jennifer obtained an injury, and as the pills took over, died in Jacob's arms. The pastor, angered at God for the fate of his wife, kept the true happenings of the accident to himself, selling his wedding ring, purchasing an RV, and packing both Kate and Scott up, going on a family road trip to once again find the Lord and his path.
Throughout From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series
In Blood Runs Thick, he and his two children, Kate and Scott, go on a road trip with all their things in the RV. He and Kate have some different things going on, and she thinks he's keeping something from her and Scott. After Kate leaves, Jacob finds her and urges her to come back, with "Kyle" telling the two Fuller siblings that Jacob left the congregation as he lost his path and a brief scuffle occurs, with the family leaving afterwards.
In Mistress, the RV breaks down in front of The Rattler and asks for help. He ends up getting a few drinks and talks to Gerald. Jacob loses his temper when he and Gerald attempt to check the car and is urged to calm down a little. After the RV is fixed, Jacob lies down after a few too many drinks while Kate drives them.
In Self Contained, Jacob and the family put on a ruse at the border crossing with Jacob accidentally hitting another man's car by accident. He lies to the officer questioning him and allows her on the RV to look around, but is afraid she'll find the Geckos and leaving Kate in peril.
In Pandemonium, a frenzy begins with the culebras and he, his family, Aiden and the Geckos are the only ones remaining. He manages to kill Cannonball, staking him and protects his family along the way.
In La Conquista, he and the others go through the temple and run across another survivor, Frost, who allows to get some weapons. After Kate is taken to an altar by some culebras, Jacob and the others go to rescue her while fighting off more culebras.
In Boxman, he and the others go the tunnels to find Scott and run into Freddie, who reveals to them that Scott is now a culebra. After realizing Aiden deliberately separated them, he and Freddie go to save Kate from him until Scott saves them from the other culebras, revealing himself to his father.
In The Take, he is then confronted by Scott, who reveals himself to be a culebra now. Scott wants his family together and then bites Jacob. After Scott bites him, he tells Kate to kill him, as he cannot live with the consequences that come with being a culebra. Kate does as she is told, staking him in the heart just as he begins to turn.
Jacob is a rather burly man, with blue eyes and relatively tan skin in comparison to his daughter. His hair is usually slicked back, and he often wears a hat.
Jacob perhaps argues with the Gecko brothers more than any other character. In fact, he was punched in the face by Seth during their first conversation. After this, he is constantly found bickering with them throughout the season, particularly Richard, who seems to be fascinated by Kate's gentle temperament and, at the time, unclothed body, as the girl was in her bathing suit at the time of their meeting. Jacob is not only protective over his daughter around Seth and Richard, but takes offense to the racist comments of both brothers towards his adopted son. Jacob is reluctant to drive the geckos over the border, but is eventually convinced after several warnings and even a threat from Richard to rape "Katie Cakes" if he does not do as he is told. He seems to trust Seth more, engaging in conversation with him several times, topics ranging from the mental health of Richard to the death of his wife. He is very set in his ways, and would rather perish than be turned into a vampire and feed on innocent blood.
Powers and Abilities
- Immortality- Culebras do not age or decay and are immune to death by disease or sickness.
- Accelerated Healing- Culebras heal from physical wounds much faster than humans. In addition, chronic illnesses, such as poor vision, are immediately corrected. For example, Richie was shot in the hand and had a large hole that caused him immense pain if too much pressure was applied to it. Upon transformation, the large wound healed rapidly and his vision was heightened, no longer requiring him to wear glasses.
- Superhuman Strength- Jacob has more strength than a regular human.
- Shapeshifting- Jacob can shape-shift into a reptilian form that is far stronger and more feral than their human form. It causes them to mentally degenerate into mindless animals that can be killed easier as they are not as smart in a fight and are more blood crazed, though when partially transformed, they are simply more aggressive and can speak, while other are more like hungry zombies and even hunt in hoards or packs. They either have flaked or scaly skin with sometimes hardened scales and horns.
- Sunlight- Culebras are vulnerable to the sunlight and will die of exposure to it.
- Staked- Culebras are vulnerable to stakes to the heart, as it will usually kill them.
- Extraction- Jacob is vulnerable to heart extraction.
