Chief Jacob "Jake" Arrow is a main character appearing in Season 7 of Criminal Case, where he served as the Chief of the Supernatural Hunters before pledging his loyalty to the demon queen in The Hunted Hunter (Case #28 of Supernatural Investigations). During the events of To Hell and Back (Case #30 of Supernatural Investigations), he broke his loyalty and returned to the team.


55 years of age, Jacob has brown eyes, shaggy, graying brown hair, a thick beard and a mustache. He sports a X-shaped scar on his left cheek and wrinkles across his forehead and under his eyes. He wears a maroon, buttoned-up shirt under a black overt vest with a black pistol holstered inside.

Jacob and Ben formed the Supernatural Hunters 25 years ago after a vampire killed Jacob's wife, Lily. After years of fighting alone, he was forced to recruit the team after he lost his left arm. He is rough and grizzled, and while he can be ruthless, he respects supernatural beings who live peacefully with humans. He also enjoys fishing and DIY.

In his quasi-suspect appearance in The Tree of Death, Jacob ditches his vest in place of a slate gray jacket with black fur lining and wears his holster on the outside of his jacket.

Events of Criminal Case

Meeting Chief Arrow

In Washington State, USA, 2019, Chief Arrow greeted the player and introduced them to the Supernatural Hunters. Before he could properly introduce them to the rest of the team, Chief Arrow sent the player and Gwen to a Seattle cemetery after reports of a vampire attack.

Immortal Combat

After arresting Dr Aculus' killer, Luke and the player found the recipe for the vampire elixir of invincibility (per Felix) amongst Eric's belongings. After Luke burned the recipe, he and the player updated Chief Arrow. Chief Arrow told the team that if there was even a chance that Dr Aculus had left some mention of the elixir in writing at his mansion, they needed to find it and destroy it.

After Chief Arrow took over from Luke as the player's partner, they searched Dr Aculus' bedroom to see if there was anything related to the elixir. There, they found a key with Chief Arrow's name on it. Per Hope, the key unlocked a safety deposit box at Débit Suisse. At the bank, Chief Arrow and the player found a letter from Dr Aculus addressed to the chief. The letter revealed that Dr Aculus' sources in the Southwest had informed him of a malevolent force that was sapping the life of the livestock and the land. This prompted the team to head to the Southwest.

Bad Vibes

After arresting Rainee Day's killer, Felix and the player asked Ben about Chief Arrow's foul mood, which had started ever since they arrived in Saguaro, Arizona. Ben informed them that Chief Arrow had honeymooned there with his late wife and suggested that they helped remind him of the good times.

After they found Chief Arrow's wedding cake figurine, Felix and the player brought it to him. He reminisced about his wedding being the happiest day of his life and thanked the player for restoring one of his happiest memories. He then rewarded the player.

The Ghost of Murders Past

Mid-investigation, FBI Agent George Mathison arrested Chief Arrow for the possession of R.J. Fielding's body.

After uncovering the identity of Fielding's killer, Felix and the player pleaded with George to release Chief Arrow. Reluctantly, he released the chief, who was caught up on Luke's possession by Abigail Riley.

After the team exorcised Riley's spirit from Luke and arrested Axel Bross for Fielding's murder, Chief Arrow and the player asked Axel how they could convince Riley to find peace. He told the team about a ring that he had gifted to her when she died, prompting Chief Arrow and the player to search for the ring. When they did, they summoned Riley and convinced her to pass over to the afterlife.

Weirder Stuff

After discovering the identity of Rex Lane's killer, Chief Arrow and the player searched the Weirder Stuff film set for a lead on finding Chief Arrow's former mentor, Falcon. After finding a sequence of numbers carved into a tree, they sent them to Hope, who deduced that they were coordinates for a wooden structure.

At the said structure, Chief Arrow and the player found Falcon. Falcon pointed a crossbow at the team, demanding that Chief Arrow proved his identity. After performing a fireball trick that Falcon had taught him, Chief Arrow gained his former mentor's trust, prompting them to hug. Chief Arrow then asked about demons roaming the earth and the possibility of a demon-werewolf alliance. Falcon informed the team that the demons lived in the Netherworld and drew their strength from their queen. He also revealed that demons wanted to drain Earth's life force and explained that they could only cross into their world if they were either strong enough or summoned by a human. Falcon then told the team to stay in touch with him.

The Tree of Death

After discovering the demon identity of Annette Strong's killer, Chief Arrow and the player asked Falcon for help in confronting Zeke. He told the team that they could use the essence of the magic tree to amplify the power of their weapons. After Ben used essence from the tree to amplify their weapons, the player discussed the plan to banish Zeke with Chief Arrow. He told them to start their search at the viewpoint and that if they came across him, they would distract him while Ben attacked from behind.

Upon receiving Zeke's message to meet him at midnight, the team confronted Zeke. However, Zeke melted their weapons and gained the upper hand. Before Zeke could kill the team, a mystery demon appeared and banished Zeke to the Netherworld. The mystery demon turned out to be novelist Arthur Darkwood, who told the team that their minds were vulnerable to demon attacks. He then advised Chief Arrow and the player to seek out a coven of witches in the Midwest in order to gain a spell to protect their minds.

Scry for Help

After good witch Belinda contacted the team through her crystal ball, telling them that she knew where the children who were kidnapped by some witches were kept, Chief Arrow joined the player in meeting her in Indiana. There, they found her drowned in a cauldron. Chief Arrow then assisted the player in their investigation into the murder. At one point, Chief Arrow almost died from touching a crystal cursed by the witch Agnes Leek. With his help, however, the player arrested Wiccan witch Heather Night for the murder and uncovered the kidnapping scheme heralded by witch coven leader Morgana Blackhawk. After the arrest and after getting a mind protection spell from Agnes, he accompanied the player in listening to Arthur's story regarding the demon war and the defeated demon queen.

Niagara Fallen

At the end of the investigation, Hope and the player updated Chief Arrow on demon rebel Rathimael's murder. They informed him that Rathimael had been killed in Niagara Falls some years ago. The police dubbed Rathimael as "The Pilgrim", who was connected to an address in Salem, Massachusetts. Hope discovered that the address was now a witch museum. With no other leads, Chief Arrow made the decision to move the team to Massachusetts.

The Third Degree

After discovering the demon identity of Theresa Rosenthal's killer, the team discovered that Hope was the fifth key to the demon queen's cage and that she was in the demons' captivity. Luke and the player informed Chief Arrow, who urged the team not to panic. Arthur told the team that there was still time to prevent the demon queen from being released. He informed them that the cage was in an alternate dimension, and that the forces in said dimension ebbed and flowed, making the cage stronger and weaker at different times. Since the next weak phase was to happen that night, the team could use a jumper artifact to join Arthur in the other dimension.

After finding a jumper artifact at Theresa's house, the team made the jump to the other dimension. There, Arthur welcomed them to the between-dimension and swore that he would protect the team at the first sign of danger. However, they were too late to stop Reggie from using Hope to unlock the demon queen's cage. After the cage opened, the demon queen emerged looking exactly like Lily, much to Chief Arrow's surprise.

Death at a Funeral

After returning to the base, Chief Arrow told the team that they were going to exhume Lily's body in South Carolina due to the demon queen resembling Lily, only to be interrupted by Bernie Silverman's murder. Mid-investigation, Ben told the team that the Chief claimed he had seen Lily, but the woman then turned out to be a stranger who only looked like her from behind, much to his hysteric. Ben would eventually calm him down.

After arresting Bernie's killer, Chief Arrow informed Luke and the player that he did not feel emotionally prepared to exhume Lily's body as he took a long time to move on from being haunted by her lifeless body. Still hoping to know whether her body was in the coffin, he asked Luke and the player to exhume her body for him instead. The two did so, only to find nothing but a crowbar in her coffin. According to Priya, the dirt from the crowbar proved that Lily's body was stolen a week after her death. Upon updating Chief Arrow about the bad news, he wondered why the demon queen picked her wife's body instead of other bodies. After all the events, he and Hope reconciled after their fight in Massachusetts.

To the Lighthouse

After discovering the demon identity of Bucky Johnson's killer, Chief Arrow and the player went to Dr Daemon's mansion, where they found Edwina's historic account regarding the demons, which (per Felix) divulged that Falcon had bound the demon queen to Lily's body.

The team then informed their shocking discovery to Falcon, who had joined forces with Rathimael to destroy the demon queen during the demon war. After the queen was defeated, the two of them decided to put the queen in a cage that would have to be made from an utterly pure being. However, the only one who fit the qualifications was Lily, who was actually a good fairy who had her wings cut. Feeling guilty, Falcon told the team that he got a vampire to drain Lily's blood and that he and Rathimael exhumed her body from the grave a week after in order to bound the queen to her body. Seeing how wretched and vengeful the Chief was, Falcon went on to mentor him to keep him stable after his wife's death, leaving the Chief to feel betrayed.

Later on, Ben told the team that he saw Chief Arrow driving away in his RV. Near the RV parking spot, the team found his phone which had GPS coordinates set to Florida. After Ben informed the team that he and Lily had their last vacation in a secluded hut in a swamp in the Everglades, Florida, the team left for Florida to save the Chief from himself and the demons.

As a weapons aficionado, Jacob had the responsibility of taking care of necessary ballistic analyses, and informing the team of such results after a certain amount of time or a speed-up process using Criminal Case Cash. His task-wait rates varied depending on the difficulty of the task, but they would all cost 1 Criminal Case Cash per 30 minutes.

Below is the list of analyses Jacob has performed throughout the course of the game:

Case #4: Hour of the Wolf

  • Handgun (15:00:00)

Case #13: Weirder Stuff

  • Flamethrower (09:00:00)

Case #14: Winter Murderland

  • Trident (09:00:00)

Case #25: The Third Degree

  • Fingerprints on Gun (03:00:00)
  • Bullet Casing (15:00:00)

Case #27: To the Lighthouse

  • Blueprint (12:00:00)
  • Electroshock Device (15:00:00)


As the Chief of the Supernatural Hunters, Jacob requires reports from three different "teammates" (friends who play Criminal Case and are recruited to the player's team) before he can let the player advance to the next case of Supernatural Investigations. Besides that, he notifies the player each time they level up in the season.

Also, the player may choose Jacob to join the investigation of each crime scene (in any case in Supernatural Investigations) and provide hint bonuses. He is available as a 5-hint partner. (This feature is only available in the mobile variant of Criminal Case)


  • Chief Arrow is one of the characters to appear as a quasi-suspect six times.
    • He is also one of the characters to appear as a quasi-suspect in two consecutive cases in Supernatural Investigations.
  • After proving his identity to Falcon, Chief Arrow draws his back to hug him, making him one of the few characters to do such at one point in a cutscene.
