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.
    Adalbern A Thrax prince it seems. I get the feeling he's not much of a people person, but there's no fault there. I'm not exactly a social butterfly myself. Certainly a no nonsense type, though.
    Adora Some guy who knows how legs work. Good job, guy. I don't like him.
    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.
    Belladonna A very somber individual. Very Thraxian. Can't really complain, but he could use Sabine's fashion advice!
    Berenice I /will/ make him smile.
    Caith A Thrax prince -- so that makes us related. I ran into him in the Thrax library. He seemed very formal with a dry way of speaking; polite! I wonder if he was in the recent hullabaloo at the Lodge? He seems thin and hurt. I hope he gets better soon!
    Cassandra A man awash in a sea of his own fears. May he find the solid strength of Gloria to guide him to gentle harbor.
    Clover He blew into the Bold Espressions like a ship tossed by a storm. He seems to be a man who needs coffee the way a ship needs winds at it's sails.
    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!
    Cullen Seems a bit on the awkward side, and at least as inclined to stare at things as I am. This is a good thing, I shall let him stare first!
    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.
    Draven Super serious! More serious than my Nova! But he seems nice! I like him! He doesn't want people to know he is nice, but I bet he is!
    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.
    Elora A quiet Prince. But you can tell he's watching, absorbing. Maybe judging? Time will tell.
    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.
    Faye A quiet man, though he seems kind. I hope I will have the chance to speak with him again in other circumstances to find out what's behind his reserve.
    Fiora We all know your guards were overreacting.
    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.
    Harlex A quiet fellow, like myself. More so, in some ways. Interestin' sword style. The language of steel reveals more about us than words ever will, anyway.
    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.
    Ilvin I saw that smile. I saw it!
    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.
    Iseulet A dark, brooding Thraxian Prince who holds more secrets than the depths of the ocean and swims with sharks - both on land and at sea.
    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.
    Jennyva I met him at the Ambassador Salon. Seems a bit out of his element but very intense and broody. You know, kraken-esque but with nicer eyes.
    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?
    Jyri Serious and hard to read. I think more people should be harder to read, to be quite frank - so I admire that.
    Katarina Jasher is undoubtedly the epitome of a traditional prince of House Thrax. Polite, cordial, and dutiful. He is a delight to spend time with and does not make it a point to be disparaging to the fact that Katarina holds a position of martial power as an admiral, and he entertains her sense of humor and off-the-wall ideas. Perhaps she's growing on him?
    Kenna So, he's really quiet. And... well, I've been told that 'delicious' is gross...
    Klaus A nice Thrax Prince. I think he was nice, the rum made it all blurry and squish and soggy that night.
    Leonidas My little brother. Man, he got all tall and everything. Even got a scary look in his eye. Hah, he couldn't have made me prouder.
    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.
    Lorenzo An interesting man, not entirely what I would expect from a prince of House Thrax. His creative pursuits are quite fascinating, and I look forward to the chance to speak with him again.
    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.
    Lys He's a prince of Thrax, but he reminds me of a silent lone wolf. Off in the corner, always watching and waiting... but what is he waiting for?
    Macda For sitting in a library, he was very reserved. Perhaps he dislikes the unexpected, or the unannounced.
    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.
    Nijah A very serious man, a sailor and one that seems to have no time for fun or vices, but could have some powerful lessons to impart of his own.
    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!
    Pharamond Quiet, likeable. He drinks so the man can't be all bad. It's the ones that don't you have to worry about...
    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!
    River Most Thraxians are cold, but this one it is almost tragic to see how distant he seems. It makes me a little sad.
    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?
    Terese A grave and studious fellow, understandable perhaps given we've both faced off against the Gyre. He seems as much a scholar as a warrior to me. I'm curious what he might know.
    Thesarin Heard more than he spoke. Meant more than he said.
    Turo A lot like me. I can work with that.
    Valdemar Businesslike, but seems to have a keen mind. I am appreciative of his help.
    Vanora Well-dressed Prince of Thrax who has trouble swallowing rum and laughing at the same time, but in his defense it isn't easy.
    Vercyn Strong silent, brooding Thraxian prince. Still, not even him can resist me for very long, as I coax many sentences from him eventually.
    Victus I have been sailing a long time. I have met the brash, the bold, the loud and the ignorant. Usually when they all share the same space. I cannot be more happy that one of our ilk can find the presence of mind to be calm, calculating and polite. It's refreshing.
    Zoey There are several similarities between he and Ian. If possible, however, he's just that much more taciturn.
