Johan Jacobsen was a zoologist and an international authority on endangered species.


Early life and careerEdit

Jacobsen was an academic friend of Dr. Drago Pettrovich Madnar during their college years. He began his career as a member of Green Peace. He then worked as vice chairman for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and served as a biology adviser for Maxwell magazine.[1] He had also heard about FOXHOUND's exploits, although he was curious as to why they used animal codenames, feeling that animals were not inherently warlike.

Zanzibar Land DisturbanceEdit

Main article: Zanzibar Land Disturbance

During the time of Operation Intrude F014, Jacobsen was near Zanzibar Land conducting research on the desert wildlife of the Middle East. Solid Snake learned his radio frequency from Dr. Madnar during his mission and would contact him when dealing with animal related matters. While discussing these, Jacobsen would often bring up the topic of food, in relation to the subject of the conversation.

Behind the scenesEdit

Johan Jacobsen (ヨハン・ヤコブセン Yohan Yakobusen?) is a character who appears in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. Dr. Madnar will give the player Jacobsen's frequency. After his initial conversion with Snake, Jacobsen can only be contacted during animal related matters.

Jacobsen was named Yozev Norden (ヨゼフ・ノルデン Yosefu Noruden?) in the original MSX2 version of Metal Gear 2. His name and appearance were later changed in the re-released versions of the game. His appearance in the original MSX2 version bears a resemblance to actor Bob Hoskins.
