Name

Japheth "Jay" Selah

Concept

Ex-Israeli Mossad, Desert Combat and Electronics Security Specialist; Security

Aspects

Napoleon Complex: Japheth is not a large man, which comes in handy for finding cover in combat and tucking himself into walls and vents to install and work on security systems. However, his stature always made others think him easier to push around, leaving him often feeling threatened in any situation where others have an advantage of height. This has left him with a large chip on his shoulder, and he compensates by always being quick to assert himself physically, hoping to ensure that by establishing his strength, others will back off.

Mossad Training: Instense combat training with the Israeli Mossad has prepared Japheth for nearly any combat situation. However, it has also changed his demeanor, making violence his go-to action in a situation where he is unsure of himself or feels threatened.

Religious: Japheth's strict adherence to the statutes of Judaism have helped him in many a foxhole. He takes solace in his faith: memorized passages from the Torah and ritualistic prayers help bolster his morale and willpower no matter the situation. He wears a Hamsa about his neck, and makes sure to rub it before any combat situation. Unfortunately, the events he has witnessed as of late have begun to wear on his beliefs, confronting them with evidence of things his deity would never have created.

Personal History

Japheth was recruited to the Foundation following a particularly gruesome encounter with a colony of SCP-672 during a particularly rapid expansion event. His team was investigating a suspected Hamas terrorist cell when, on-by-one, the members were lured by the SCP's pheromone's and subsequently stripped clean. Japheth was released from the influence of the pheromone just as it finished devouring the rest of his team. His frantic distress call was intercepted by MTF Theta-4 en route to contain the colony, and he was subsequently detained and sequestered at Site-██. Following a positive review of mental health by Dr. ██████, he was sent to Area 354 to supplement their security staff, and to remove him from any possible environment where he could encounter another SCP-672 colony.
