Description: There is not an ounce of spare flesh on Jasher's lean frame. He is controlled motion, slim lines and sturdy muscle: broad shoulders, narrow hips, muscular back and sturdy arms, wide strong hands, it is a sailor's craft that has shaped the raw, lanky bones into a man's corded strength. His lips shape a bow more inclined to frowns than smiles, but when a smile does warm his lips, it reflects in his eyes: a deep, vivid blue, intelligent and bright beneath thick, well-defined eyebrows. Almost always impeccably shaved, he has a strong jaw and bold nose that lend more to the character of his face.

Personality: Jasher is keen, a sharp observer, and highly reserved, a layer of studied control over a deep, hot core of passionate energy. He believes in right and wrong, and justice, but with a particularly Thraxian skew. A fierce warrior, by the book officer and competent sailor, he takes well to the regimented shipboard life and finds himself restless and discontented separated from structure. He believes in the order of things and has little patience for chaos erupting outside that order. He is respectful to women within their role and pities those who abandon their role for something more "mannish". He pities men who lack for glory. He's pretty sure he's right about all of this. His sense of humor is very dry, obscured beneath a mask of blandness that makes many suspect him of humorlessness and makes his occasional joke all the more unexpected. He has many control issues and is unlikely to yield up to a moment's recklessness, but cares very deeply about his passions. He has little romantic interest in the company of anybody, generally, but when he has had an infatuation before, it has always been for men who combine intelligence and strength. The social pressure remains on him to marry a woman and produce heirs, regardless of his personal sexuality. It is an ongoing struggle.

Background: Much of Jasher's life has been defined by what he is not: as a younger son of a lesser line, he is not an heir, he is not in line, he is assumed little. He was overlooked as a boy, often, and it served to increase the keenness of his eyes as well as the desperation of his need for certainty. Lesser princes taking up arms and taking to the seas could be the surprise of no one, but Jasher started very young: he ran away from home while still a boy -- in disguise, romantically enough -- to become a ship's boy on a hauling marauder, and gave himself to the sea. Rather than punish the boy more conventionally for his disobedience, the family determined that if he would chase the salt so much, he would give himself to it, and he was sworn young and learned the naval craft.

Early rebellion rewarded with hard work, and each job well done rewarded with another job, Jasher fought and killed on the high seas as a teenager. While some of his more socially minded family went to Arx, perhaps, to dawdle and socialize and learn statecraft, he was swimming with sharks and spilling pirate blood and hunting down men and escaped thralls to put them to the sword. His times ashore were spent with books, not with people. His yearning is for learning, more than it seems to be for love or family or fighting or drinking, the popular pastimes of young men his age. Every time the prospect of marriage and the concomitant socialization with women and the familial obligation that attaches has come up, Jasher has found a way to put himself out to sea again. The social scene has always frustrated him, and while he approaches the prospect of marriage with grim duty, he finds no joy in it, and no interest in women.

  • Name Summary
    Aahana One more about his work than socializing. I can't fault him for this when I have a much similiar work effort.
    Aethan Not given to long speeches. It's appreciated.
    Ainsley Laconic, and taciturn it seems. A man of few words.
    Alarissa By far one of the more stoic Thraxians about, and I never quite know where to pin him down in the scheme of things. But he is delightful company none the less.
    Aleksei One of those people that it's a downright accomplishment to manage to make smile.
    Amari A quiet, intense Thraxian, who had some helpful advice about how to fight on a ship. I sort of wish he hadn't reminded me of the sharks, but otherwise, he was full of valuable insights.
    Arthen Not a man who feels the need to fill the space with words, just on account of there not bein' any there. I can respect that. I bet there's a lot more goin' on in his head than he'll tell.
    Astraea He's so quiet! When people are so reserved it's often seen as a sign of great intelligence. At least mother always said so and she is quite wise.
    Austen A most reserved prince, I believe I have found a fellow spirit in reservation. I hope to learn more about him.
    Barric A focused and determined Prince of Thrax. I suppose he will be a cousin soon enough. Once he is trained up a bit I am sure he will be quite the deadly opponent with that pride driving him.
    Berenice I /will/ make him smile.
    Constantine A very quiet, stoic man with an intensity resonating beneath the calm surface of his demeanor.
    Coraline Quiet, polite, and can decorate any garden better than statuary!
    Delilah A taciturn man, the force of the ocean restrained in a deceptively flat course. I doubt he much reveals the depths he has unless inspired to do so, and what mysteries lie under there? Alas, that's the failing of a scholar to wish to know, isn't it?
    Denica I'm not entirely convinced that he's actually related to Lilith. He is... very serious!
    Derovai Quiet, intense, reserved, but trustworthy, given prior research. I half-hope he finds what he's looking for... but for his own sake, I also half-hope he doesn't.
    Domonico He speaks little and to the point. Appreciates good worksmanship. Not excitable. Good.
    Echo Some Thraxmen are the best kind of diplomats, others -- Warriors. Prince Jasher? Who knows, he's quiet and thoughtful, but I wouldn't say brooding. Just secretive. One thing's for certain, and that's that they ALL love their rum.
    Faruq I hope I have not overly offended the Prince. He seems very serious and staid. Perhaps I will have more opportunity to learn his character later.
    Gareth A Thrax Prince that doesn't say much. This is contrary to many Thrax princes and is most likely for the best. Good for him.
    Gianna Quiet, perhaps reserved, and a keen observer.
    Gwenna I have crossed paths with Prince Jasher Thrax on a couple of occasions, though finally heard his voice when he attened the Kite Festival. One should not call him grave, but perhaps someone of a quieter disposition. He also has exceptional taste in kites.
    Harper He's sure a quiet one. Those are the ones you gotta worry about sometimes. Then again sometimes it's nice to have peace and quiet. Can't make up my mind on this one.
    Imane I can't tell what he thinks, there isn't a lot of emotion about him. There are moments when I want to reach out and shake him, but I have a feeling he wouldn't take very kindly to that.
    Jeffeth He reminds me of Lord Ian Kennex. Just sitting there at the table with occasional bounces of his head and shoulders to prove he's still alive. He's probably a very nice Prince.
    Jordan A realistic sailor who has also had his brushes with the strange and the unusual of this world, to hear him talk. He must have some interesting stories. All travelers do.
    Juliana Cousin dearest, I promise if you let the smile free, it won't break.
    Juniper His Highness, Prince of the Rationed Word. Is it wisdom or reticence which leaves him always watching?
    Kenna So, he's really quiet. And... well, I've been told that 'delicious' is gross...
    Lilith Am I the loving older sister that everyone wants? Yes, of course I am. Jasher must be ecstatic that he's got me. Deep down. In his heart. Somewhere. Must be.
    Luca So there I was, on a not-so-dark but a little stormy evening at the Shrine to Gloria, and I was just on the cusp of pegging Prince Jasher Thrax as a bland conversationalist when he went and smiled at me, then dispensed great common sense with his declarations. Mm. I do like it when I get to be surprised.
    Melody The observant and quiet Thrax prince. I've met a lot of Thrax nobility, but none of have been as reserved as he is.
    Merek I met him a while back when I was new to the scholars, doing some of my study with him. He is quite a kind person, and often has a joke or something interesting to research!
    Mikani A prince. A dueling prince. What fun!
    Morrighan A Thraxian Prince, one that didn't seem so bad and didn't incite violence at first meeting. Polite enough, doesn't seem to be fond of smiling, like he catches himself before one can form. I think it's there, beneath it all, just like there are unseen things lurking under the surface of the sea.
    Niklas Quiet Thrax prince. Can't tell if he's shy or a snob.
    Ophelia Quiet, but that's alright! I do enough talking for the both of us!
    Oswyn A quiet, thoughtful seeming man.
    Perronne Quiet! Much less shouty than I figured a Thrax Prince would be. Seems nice? Ish! Approach with caution, in case the shouty happens later.
    Petal He is willing to hunt krakens, he must be very brave!
    Reese I seen him a few times. He seems serious, composed and not one to reveal much to the world.
    Rey He is very hard to read, but when on the beach there seems a light that many miss. And he smiled.. well almost a smile, well it /was/ a smile.. kinda.. sorta, but smiles are there.
    Riagnon Austere, but not unpleasant. And he MUST like me otherwise he'd have never invited me to come sit!
    Ryhalt Very quiet for a Prince I found. Hope he enjoyed the ginger cake, or Ianthe will pout.
    Sabella A very dashing Thraxian prince who likes unicorns and books on unicorns and books in general it seems because he appears to be engrossed in whatever it is he is reading, which if I haven't mentioned I think is a book about unicorns and princesses!!!!!! Which means that we are destined to be AMAZING best friends!
    Sorrel A somewhat traditionalist Thrax prince, Jasher has opinions when it comes to Thrax princesses in armor going out to fight. Nonetheless, he is begrudgingly approving of my skills, and I hope to count him as an ally, not to mention a friend.
    Sparte A curious sort, but a sharp head. Thought I'd be shorter for some reason. Maybe I was sitting down the first time he saw me? Or am I really taller than I used to be?
    Thesarin Heard more than he spoke. Meant more than he said.
    Turo A lot like me. I can work with that.
    Vercyn Strong silent, brooding Thraxian prince. Still, not even him can resist me for very long, as I coax many sentences from him eventually.
    Zoey There are several similarities between he and Ian. If possible, however, he's just that much more taciturn.
