A charismatic young man, a local community leader, a tragedy waiting to happen.

Human/ Male/ 20
Jessius is a very good looking young man, with strong features, gentle brown eyes, fair skin, brown hair. His voice is musical and strong. He is athletic in build. He is generally appealing in look and action.

Jessius’s life is just like everyone else’s in the area.  His parents did the same work as everyone else (farming, mining, what ever is appropriate for the region). Jessius is one of many young men in the area. However, he is their defacto leader. He was always the “captain” for every team. He was the one people asked advice from. He was the one who was in charge of the games. In fact, Jessius has such a charismatic presence that he is the “social leader” for people much older and much younger than himself.  Someday he will be a “village elder”, soon he will be the area’s “head man”. Right now, he is just the guy people turn to to make decisions.

He has a “side kick”. Jefficus has been his best friend since they were toddlers. Jefficus has been helping Jessius “run things” since they were small. If you have an issue, you find Jefficus to get Jessius.

Recently, he confessed his true feelings to a local girl called Amya. Amya’s miller family moved to the area when the old miller died about eight years back. Nobody except Jessius really liked her, since she was different.

Special Equipment
None really.

Roleplaying Notes
Jessius could be living in a village, a small town, a neighborhood in a city, or any small to moderate grouping. His being a farmer, an apprentice something, or group member is completely independent. This character is a personality and situation to be plugged into any group.

Generally happy and well adjusted.

He is somewhat careful. He knows he has a responsibility to the people who look up to him.
He is insanely loyal to Jefficus.

He is head over heels in love with Amya.

You must follow the links to Jefficus and Amya and read those posts to fully appreciate this one.

The first one I read of the set. He is obnoxiously perfect. The players should kill him off just for that.

I know he sets up the situation, by being "in charge", but he is just kind of flat in a simplistic King Arthur sort of way.

Like KH, I also read this first and it just seems a very bland character to me. After reading the others of the set, the situation is somewhat interesting and very versatile. For this, I would give it a 3.

The seafaring people of the Southern Islands value their ships greatly, as do other maritime nations. However, they take the beliefs about ships a bit further. A ship's name is very important, once it is named it shouldn't be renamed anymore, ever; most renamed ships seem to fail sooner or later. Ships do not tolerate parts from other ships, a single board from a wrong source can cost sailors their lives, so it is said.

Most ships are identified as female, very few as male, though there is no tale of how their personality is identified; it has nothing to do with the name, for example. The Clarissa (a well-known male ship) is said to like good wine. So whenever sailors or passangers drink, they have to spill a glass for the ship, too. But that is only the most known example.
