Jessius

By:

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

Appearance
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.

History/Background
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.

The old clock tower stands tall, but the bulk of the uppermost storey is crumbling and unsafe, with gaping cracks in the walls. The metal struts and girders supporting the great bronze bells are still intact, though, and the bells survive. The grotesque gargoyles and arabesques which decorated the original design have either fallen into the street (once or twice a year more bricks fall from the tower, prompting calls for its demolition) or have been defaced, but the main doors to the clock tower are still intact and show signs of being kept in working order. This is the home of The Captains, clad in raggedy clothes, with sooty faces, and perpetually runny noses. But behind each set of eyes is the look of a survivor. They live to stick together and make it through each day. Older than their years in many ways, the friendship they share with each other and Wims ghost keeps the core of a childs innocence and hope alive in each. But they are still very suspicious of outsiders. They are a group of street children who live in the clock tower. Some are orphans, some runaways, and some nomads who occasionally return to their homes. But they’re all poor, dirty and perpetually hungry, as well as being wily, unscrupulous and mischievous in a fairly brutal way. Enough of them have suffered at the hands of adults for all of them to be wary of any grown-ups, particularly ones who ask too many questions, although with hard work and a lot of food it might be possible to win the confidence or even the trust of a few of them.
