Jade lived on a small island that had more dead on it than living. Instead of becoming much like mexican culture and embracing the duality of life and death, the people of his island closed themselves away. The people of the island had faced a small plague before Jade was born and were beginning to recuperate their numbers. Children were often born with gifts relating to the dead. These children were ostracized along with their families so that their blood wouldn't pass along. Jade was born with red eyes and a unsettling gift to talk to the dead. Along with this, he has a club foot that improved with age, but still hinders his walking and stamina along with a shy disposition.
Ideas of plots with Jade
- Not quite sure how to talk to people
- Feels awkward about his limp
- has long, black hair, rich brown skin, and red eyes
- I want him to eventually become a very reluctant necromancer
- wears long robes most of the time to hide his foot and because all of those spirits around make him cold
Jade has to leave the island. The island is a fairly large tourist spot due to the amount of graveyards and strange local customs to keep spirits away. He makes a deal with a tourist or traveller to get him off the island. I think this would be better with a more medieval fantasy flare, but urban can work just as well.
Jade is off the island and has made somewhat of a name for himself as necromancer and medium. Someone (you?) comes to ask him to help with a strange spirit problem they're having.
