My pending character application.
Jerome LannisterFull Name:
"The People's Lion"
"The Bastard Lion"
"The Black Lion"
Jerome LannisterOccupation: House:
Jerome was descended from surprisingly Tysha, the first woman that Tyrion "The Imp" Lannister married for two weeks. Even though the events of their marriage was rather tragic, after the rape that Tywin Lannister ordered on her... Tyrion's seed was strong enough that Tysha bore a daughter for Tyrion unknown to him. That daughter was given the name Riona... a tribute to her father who she will never know.
Riona grew up under the tutelage of her mother, who used the money she earned to send her to better herself and learned about herbs and some medical training even though she was no Maester, which prompted her to opening up a shop selling herbs as well as offering her services as a healer for the small folk. Her fame for providing good healing services as well as kindness to the smallfolk attracted the attention of the Maester serving in Lannisport and he went over to find out what is it all about. He then spoke with her and tried to convince her to join the Maesterly Order... so that her skills would be able to benefit more people but she refused politely, stating that the smallfolk needed her services more than the wealthy and the Lords who probably had such services readily available to them.
Rather than get angry, the Maester was rather amused that she was so much like the youngest son of the Lannisters in Lannisport and then left with a bow. A few days later, Damien Lannister... intrigued by what his Maester had said about a woman healer in Lannisport having such a similar view about the smallfolk as him decided to seek her out and it was love at first sight. What comes after was a few years of courting, speaking and an endless bout of him sitting with her as she provided healing services for the smallfolk until she agreed to marry him, if only he would not stop her from carrying out what she had been doing now.
It was a rather unusual affair for a Lannister to marry a commoner, and what ensued was the worst scandal that ever rocked the House. While it was rumored that Riona was in fact, Tyrion Lannister's daughter... no one could could prove that fact and no one cared to because of the circumstance before her birth which was the gang rape by commoner Lannister guards that were orchestrated by none other than Tywin Lannister himself which puts the rumor to a certain unfavorable light. In short, Damien had married a whore's bastard and both of them were treated very coldly by not only members of their House but also those minor Houses that wanted to stay in good graces with the great House. It was in this environment that Jerome grew up in, and while his parents loved him and taught him not to hold a grudge over what others had said or done to them, he could not help but feel a deep seated fury for the members of his own House. He feels that it is unfair to be judged over things that no one has control over, and he swore to himself to clear his mother and grandmother's as well as his grandfather's name at all costs while keeping to the path that his parents had urged him to do... be kind to the commonfolk and serve them as best as he could instead of demanding service from them like most other Lords and Ladies would have. He strives to be the best Lannister he could be despite the overwhelming negative view towards him and his family.Family Connections:
Grandfather: Tyrion Lannister
Father: Damien Lannister
Cousin: Ragnar Lannister, Head of House LannisterAppearance:
Face Claim: Austin Butler
Jerome is fair haired and has the pale blue eyes of his mother, though the silky blond hair of his father... which somehow reminds people of a young Lancel Lannister, but less feminine looking. He has a rather lean and muscular physique, though he had many scars on his back due to incidents of bullying and deliberate training accidents set up by trainers due to their disdain about what he represents. His hair is always kept at ear length, and he usually has that goofy and happy go lucky smile on his face whenever he is around friends and the family he adores. He often wears leather pants and boots and a set of light chainmail below his tunic and leather shirt that he is accustomed to wearing. A pouch of healing herbs and remedies is always found attached around his waist and he carries a short sword attached to his belt as well as some daggers hidden in his boot for his own protection.Personality:
Growing up in a rather hostile environment made Jerome become a rather unique character. While outwardly, towards the townsfolk and the common people he was kind and compassionate and is always ready to help... but when it comes to nobility and the wealthy he holds a cold aloofness that stems from his disdain and hatred of them... and those were especially aimed at his own House and its supporting Houses for treating his parents the way they did. He is loyal to those who has earned it, and those who has earned his loyalty would find that they would find no better ally who is not only quick witted, but also very generous with whatever limited wealth his family still possesses. He is also quite witty, and is able to amuse others and talk his way out of situations and is a great listener... something that his grandfather was famous for and he is totally unaware of that fact. Being ostracized throughout his life, a pariah of the House actually endeared him to those who suffered the same fate.. and he had more friends and companions from those who had the same background as he does. Bastards of Lords and Noblemen, to ironically... the same profession that he was not comfortable of being associated with... whores. He always treated them kindly, and while he never partook in the pleasures of the flesh like his grandfather was rather infamous for, he did his best to offer his services to the pleasure houses as a healer of sorts and his name was famous amongst the pleasure houses but it stained his own reputation as following in his grandfather's footsteps. He did not care for those who gossiped behind his back as he reasoned with himself this was the way to slowly build the reputation of the House... a House that he wanted to see shedding the old views that its predecessors had built and into a new one that is famous for not only tolerance but also compassion for those who worked for them.Aspirations and Goals
