: Jonus KappelaSex
: Since the socio-cultural foundation of Knosia stems from a mix of Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and Southeast Asian cultures, I based my character's off of this diverse collection of human subspecies. Just sayin'.... Anyways, Jonus is about 5'10" and weighs in at 147 pounds.Brief Bio
: Jonus was raised in the House of Lea. Born to a lowly seamstress, Jonus was destined to be a slave. He grew up knowing this, receiving a slave's education. When he was eight, the noblewoman Lea Stellus sold him and a dozen other boys to work as slaves aboard a prestigious ship, the Ferion
. During a pirate ambush five years later, the Captain and several key sailors were killed in the opening barrage. Although an older sailor ended up saving the ship, Jonus played a critical role in the escape.
As was his right, the sailor inherited the Ferion
. Jonus was quickly bought off of Lea Stellus (with the Captain's death, his ownership had automatically reverted back to his original owner), and then was officially freed on his sixteenth birthday three years later. The Ferion
and Lea Stellus had fallen on hard times by then, and Jonus left for a more stable ship, eventually winding up on Leandus Astarta's Fire Sprite
Having continuously worked aboard a ship since the age of eight, Jonus had an eight year head start over other boys his age, most of whom were just getting used to the sea life. With this advantage, he rose through the ranks quickly, eventually working directly under Captain Astarta as the First Mate. Scuttlebutt aboard the Sprite
is that his ascension was a bit too
quick to have been 100% honest.Personality
: Jonus Kappela can be summed up as a fair master and an ardent worker. He punishes infractions and failures severely and mediates disputes with a remarkably unbiased mind. Jonus will always take note of a sailor or slave who does well, and will reward those who deserve it. In the presence of women, he can be polite and friendly, albeit a little aloof. He cares very little for politics, but always at least tries to make a good impression with any woman he meets.
