War. The military-industrial complex. Increasingly militarized police forces. Overly influential corporations. Intrusive governments. People who he thinks are holding him back. Anime (most of it, the exceptions being a handful of classics and some hentai).Fears:
Bad cops. Having to make a living doing something besides music.Personality:
Jimmy John was a military brat. Following the assignments of his parents who were both in the air force, he was moved around a lot and had lived in many places throughout the country and the world. This experience has instilled in Jimmy John a certain spunkiness, adaptability and worldliness about him. He is friendly and charming, but can be dark and brooding.
However, even in the relatively relaxed environment of the air force, Jimmy John built up an abrasiveness and resentment towards authority figures, rules and regulations. He valued artistic expression and independence. He struggled to develop and maintain deep, lasting relationships, and sometimes felt like an outsider in civilian culture. Although his parents were still alive, they were often deployed overseas, leaving Jimmy John to his own devices. He was sometimes stressed when his parents were away even though the risk of them getting wounded or killed was relatively low. He was friends with other military brats who have lost their parents or saw them come back with physical and mental problems, and there has been some psychological aftermath affecting him.Bio:
After moving around a lot due to his parents' careers in the armed forces, Jimmy John's family settled in Saint Falls. With both of his parents regularly and often deployed, Jimmy John had been left on his own a lot, which he liked, but he had been separated from his mom and dad just as much, which he didn't like.
He was aimless and unmotivated despite being talented and intelligent. Once Bloody Roses was founded, Jimmy John's fantasies of becoming a rock star started becoming more of a driving force. Before that, he kind of just goofed around with his father's old instruments and played games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero, but once he felt that rush of playing with other artists, even other amateur ones, he became a much more serious student of music, to the point that he wanted to create video game soundtracks almost as much as he wanted to perform in front of live audience in an arena or stadium. Currently, he was struggling with how they should go about marketing themselves - he felt like signing any kind deal so early in their careers could hinder them in the long run.
