BiographyJake Desmond, many years ago was a struggling hockey player, who soon encountered a magical hockey stick. This hockey stick enabled him to play so much better, that apparently he became known as one of the greatest hockey players of all.
People would refer to him as Jake the Snake, he got this nickname for his ability to slither like a snake through any defense.
However, soon his good luck came with a curse, It turned out his hockey stick was evil. Therefore it turned him into a evil nasty reptilian snake like monster. Whether he was intentional or unintentional to become this way is unknown. Soon he would trick more athletes into playing with the hockey stick.
When after shooting a certain numbers of shots, the victim would be cursed and changed into a type of snake. Then he would keep the snake trapped along with the others in a pit with a trap door in the basement. It's unknown what purpose he had for doing this to his victims, possibly other than sadistic pleasure or seeing them suffer.
Years later, two teenage boys named Zach and his friend Wiley Halpin were trying out for their school hockey team, but Wiley just wasn't as confident and talented as Zach was.
After the first day of tryouts, Wiley met Jake in the basement, when he went to get ice for his bleeding nose. Jake told him his story and encouraged him to go rummage through his forgotten stuff to find his cursed hockey stick.
Jake, promised him it would help him improve and play like a pro. The powers of the stick gave Wiley immediate improvement, which ended up earning him a position on the hockey team that otherwise might have gone to Zach. That night, while Wiley slept, the stick turned into a cobra, which proceeded to bite him.
Wiley suddenly started getting rashes and scales on his body and started shedding profusely. Also he developed a bad attitude and begun to be mean to Zach and started to think like a snake, almost eating a lab mouse thinking it was a hot dog.
Just before going to a hockey game, Wiley spoke with Jake in the basement. He asked him what was happening to his skin. Jake told Wiley not to worry about it, and just focus on playing. Also he lied to him saying that if he kept using the hockey stick. he could join a professional hockey team, which greatly intrigued him.
When Wiley left with Duchamp for the game, Zach came out of hiding having overheard their frightening conversation. Zach decided to confront Jake.
Jake revealed that soon Wiley would belong to them, he revealed himself to Zach explaining why he was cursed the way he was. The reason was because he was the first one to use the hockey stick. Then many others since him have also used it, but they have all just transformed into snakes. Jake admitted that he was planning to make Wiley the newest snake to add to the pit. Jake then gave the snakes a rat to snake on, and intended to feed Zach to the snakes as a much bigger meal. However Zach escaped and ran off to warn Wiley.
Zach tried to warn Wiley about the truth about Jake and what his intentions were. Wiley at first didn't believe him, thinking he was just jealous of his new talents. Soon after an argument, Zach made off with the hockey stick and tried to return it to Jake.
But Jake captured Zach and suspended him in the air above the pit of snakes on a rope pulley, intending to feed him to them. Wiley showed up, having reclaimed the sitck, and saw Jake for who he really was.
Jake slowly begun to lower Zach into the pit. Zach repeatedly asked Wiley for his help. Taking a risk, Wiley used the hockey stick, and slap shotted Jake with a hockey puck. This made Jake fall right into pit full or various frightening snakes.
Although Wiley had good intentions to save his friend, he still used the stick one final time. Therefore his final transformation immediately begun. Zach realized the hockey stick was the sourse of all the problems. So herhe broke the hockey stick in half on his knee.
The hockey stick changed into a cobra, ready to take a chomp at him. Zach quickly threw the cobra into the basement furnace, destroying the stick. Wiley immediately changed back to normal since the transformation was incomplete.
However, shortly after Zach and Wiley left the basement training room, Jake Desmond's hand was seen emerging from the pit.
