Name

Jacob "Kens" Kensington

Concept

Roboticist and Biomedical Engineer/Researcher

Aspects

Right Arm of Superman: After suffering the loss of his right arm during an accident in a research lab at Site 23, Kens replaced his right arm with an experimental prosthetic prototype he had been developing as a side project.
"You're doing it wrong…": If someone's doing something wrong, he's not afraid to tell them so.
"…but you've got heart, kid.": He's a bit of a compassionate fellow, hoping to make sure everyone's okay. He'll take the time to talk with someone, even if it means slowing down his own experiments.

Personal History

Jacob Kensington, harking from a town in central New Jersey, grew up working with biological lab work, medical training, and engineering influences. After leading a small robotics team against other teams in an international competition and sequencing and identifying dozens of new DNA sequences for a local university, he was accepted at Johns Hopkins for their Biomedical Engineering program and Medical Program. He graduated with a PhD in BME and an MD, then went back to get a PhD in robotics. He eventually received a job working with a start-up electronics company known as Psionics International, specializing in automated drones and medical equipment/training. After a few run-ins with various SCPs, he was contacted by the Foundation, where he currently works.

Following a lab accident on July 8th, ████, he lost his biological right arm. He was able to replace it with a prototype prosthetic arm that he'd been developing as a side-project for the Foundation. As of right now, it's simply an arm, slightly stronger and faster than his original one. It can potentially be upgraded with SCPs to provided added benefits.

Recently, he was transferred Area 354 to do some research on SCP-354 and assist the Poolboys with dealing with situations involving the SCP.

Miscellaneous

He's one of the older crowd, having spent a good deal of his life getting his PhD's and then working for a research company before becoming a part of the Foundation. He's fit, but not overly muscular. His chestnut-black hair is short and smooth, accented with small streaks of greying hair. He's pretty tall, too, being set at 5' 11". He's American with some Asian heritage and straight.
