Jake Porter, born June 7th 2002, is a witch with the power of Precognition. He is romantically involved with Bridget Ellis and is a member of the resistance created by Melinda Wyatt in an alternate future where magic is exposed to the world. His powers make him a valuable asset to the team.
Jake grew up in a normal and happy family. His father came from a magical family, but didn't possess magic himself, so he kept it a secret from his wife and son. For years his father thought that Jake possessed no magic either, until Jake started having terrible nightmates at the age of eight. His father knew it was the power of Precognition manifesting, since the power was passed down in his family. He then sought help from another witch to find a binding potion, but was arrested and jailed for associating with witches. When his mother learned the truth, she started to fear her own son and left him, causing Jake to wind up in foster care.
As a teenager, Jake's powers grew and he gained the power of Astral Projection. He then accidentally exposed himself as a witch in school and had to flee. He started living on the streets and later learned though a premonition that his father had died in prison.
Joining the Resistance
At some point, Jake was arrested with a group of witches he was hanging out with. He spent at least a year in prison before he was freed by Melinda Wyatt, a rebel witch. He then received a premonition while touching her and managed to save her from being shot. Melinda then suggested he join her in her fight, as his powers would be a great help to free and protect witches. As part of the Resistance, Jake met and eventually fell in love with Bridget Ellis.
