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.
- Not quite sure how to talk to people
- Feels awkward about his limp
- has long, brown 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
Personality:While on the island, Jade tends to follows the concept of fading into the shadows. After he comes into his own as a person, he is mildly confrontational thanks to the constant attention his eyes and odd gait bring him. He can at times be very aggressive and is not quite sure how to treat people if they are showing him anything other than scorn. When confronted with kindness, Jade becomes flustered, much like a deer before the headlights. He will try to return the friendliness in kind, but sometimes this backfires due to his lack of practice. Description:
Tall and awkward, even at the cusp of 25, Jade tends to loom even as he hides in corners. Jade prefers to wear black and only black if he can get away with it, but has recently begun to wear red in a shade that defiantly compliments his eyes. Against his dark mahogany skin, the dark fabric makes him disappear into the night. His hair, which falls to the small of his back, is a natural dark brown and he sees no reason to dye it to fit the island trends, which call for red and white.His only true vanity are dark green stone beads which hide in his hair, peeking out from dark tresses. Jade's face is all angles until you reach his lips are almost as full as a woman's. combined with his high cheekbones, it lends a softness to his face that makes him strangely attractive, or so it was until they native ladies saw his eyes. Jade was one of the few children born with red eyes that had lived to adulthood. To make matters worse, Jade was born with a clubfoot which has improved with age and careful bracing. While he can walk, He wears long robes to avoid any errant stares. Ideas of plots with Jade
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.
Jade ends up in jail for witchcraft. You, a fellow prisoner in jail, come up with an idea for escape
Jade as your neurotic and slow travelling companion as you go to find an artifact or something.
Jade doing __!Things I would like to do with Jade
He's a very unworldy and inexperienced person. I think it would be fun to have him meet a mentor person. This could either be in navigating his way through life, figuring out what he's into sexually, or both.
