Introduction

Buddy, there ain't a man alive that don't wanna get his butt washed in the Jedi fountain,

Owls are the reason that God didn't make us people with foam hair.

That's just common knowledge.


Character Description

'Good looking' is a subjective term, but if you're into skinny, crippled white boys that look like they haven't slept well in a year, then Jasen is a bonafide Fabio at a short 5'9" and a possible age range of late 20's or early 30's. He's very pale in complexion and has something of a delicate bone structure, pale blue eyes with very dark circles beneath, and messy, spiky black-brown hair that is in no way purposefully styled. He just rakes a hand through it in the morning and calls it good, apparently. He's decorated his face with several piercings as well; quite a few rings and studs in either ear, two rings in his lower lip, two in one brow, a little spike labret and a shiny little nostril stud. No tongue piercings though, funny enough. He does sport a lot of tattoos, though generally it's just the black colored ink that sleeves his arms that's visible.

As far as physique goes, he doesn't look like a guy that works out at all; he's not let himself go, he's just skinny, maybe a little under fed, and his obvious injuries tend to ensure he's not doing a bunch of jogging or weight lifting. He wears long worn skinny jeans that are mostly blackish with rips in the knees and lots of punkish patches sewn on to repair tears, and a very thin teeshirt with some worn out band logo and a lot of small tears that don't look purposeful. Beat up black boots, a worn out studded leather belt, and a beat up and much studded black leather jacket with 'Anubis' bust painted on the back caps off his casual 'eh, fuck it' look. His accessories include a staggering number of charms on a necklace chain and several on his plethora of wrist covering bracelets, as well as a short, thin chain locked around his throat.

He uses a cane when he walks, giving his left leg a little favoring. As well, he tends to favor his left arm and, depending on how much it's bothering him, might wear his arm in a sling. His health doesn't look to be top notch but he doesn't appear to be dying to death either, just another low brow welfare check boy that stinks of cigarettes and stale booze.

RP Hooks
*Working Stiff: Jasen works as a graveyard shift janitor at the UC Prospect campus library, Wyldman Hall. He also owns and operates the Crypt nightclub, although he typically seems like nothing more than a bartender. Jasen also busks for money in various parks playing music, and sells his skills in linguistics.

*Burn the Witch!: He considers himself a witch, practicing archaic blood magic. Medieval alchemy, old school wizard enchanting, that kind of thing. He's not very good, zero formal training to speak of, he mostly blunders his way through his magical education alone.

*Worst Luck Ever: Okay maybe that's an exaggeration but his luck still isn't all that great. He's pretty damned accident prone, even when he seems like he should be perfectly safe, something is bound to go wrong for him in some weird chain reaction of annoyance.

*Gutter Punk Kinfolk: Jasen's a Bone Gnawer Kinfolk, he has a natural affinity with rats and can even speak to them. Extremely tribeist, he's die hard in love with his tribe and he's 110% loyal to his family over anything else in the world. If he knew Ratkin, they'd be considered family too, most likely.

*Momma: Jasen worships the Rat totem, leaning heavily towards the Momma Rat aspect. He mothers after his tribemates fiercely, acting as a sort of Bone Gnawer bank, takes care of the local tribe colony, and makes sure his Gnawer family has everything they need to be healthy and happy without judgement or attempts to subvert their natural place in the urban jungle. Stray dogs, cats, and most especially rats can count on him for free food, warmth, and healing just as much as any bum on the street can. Everyone in the dust and grime that's looked down on by the rest of the city has a friend in Jasen.

*Linguist: Do you need to know a dead language? Want to impress your friends by flawlessly saying those ridiculously long Welsh names? Need something translated? Jasen's your guy. A little cash and a bottle of Irish whiskey will get your text discreetly and efficiently translated. If he doesn't know the language, he'll figure it out in record time.

*Bad World View: Jasen has Spirit Sight and no ability to turn it off. Seeing every plane of existence at once is, to put it mildly, extremely disconcerting. He acts and reacts to things most people can't see, often times coming off either mad as a hatter or just awkward and weird at the very least. It may be a merit, but for him it's a definite burden.
