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.
    Ajax A silk, frankly, his manners are as expected. But I seldom run into people who seem to be intentionally difficult to read. I wonder if he'll be a hero or a villain?
    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.
    Alecstazi I used to think he and I were so alike, but time and distance make shreds of that theory.
    Aleksei One of those people that it's a downright accomplishment to manage to make smile.
    Alessia Reasonable, well spoken and knowledgeable.
    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.
    Andry He seems distracted, lost in thought. Hopefully there's something good brewing in there.
    Apollo Broody and quiet. He seems like he'd make a good guard. Dressed too fancy though.
    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.
    Astyr A sober and thoughtful Prince of Thrax. He seems to take the interests of his family and the Isles to heart.
    Athaur He was introduced to me as Kind. I am not so sure that is correct. I do know that he is one to watch.
    Austen A most reserved prince, I believe I have found a fellow spirit in reservation. I hope to learn more about him.
    Azova A quiet fellow. Hopefully a little tending to the flame can thaw out that exterior, though.
    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.
    Bliss A prince of Thrax who seemed rather withdrawn. I do not know that I will ever know this man too well - we seem to operate in such distant circles from one another - but he definitely seems to have thoughtfulness behind those eyes of his.
    Braden A prince. Doesn't say much. Looks pretty serious.
    Brigida This man needs to relax a lot more. He is quite polite and helpful though.
    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.
    Cassia A silver tongued prince; tobacco smoke wafted over cedar and rosewood, with a hidden strand of dustpoppy blossom.
    Cassima Apathy, but an apathy you can rely upon.
    Cerdensulathara There is a lot hidden in those shadows. Intriguing. Not judgemental.
    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.
    Conall A fellow enthusiast of history and the study of war, and collections of books. A friend of the Princess as well, so that's a good sign. I'll have to talk to him more in the future.
    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!
    Daniella He seems like the sort who'd never make a bad decision unless he was really, really drunk... I'm sure I put that brandy bottle down here somewhere...
    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.
    Elsa Someone that could be a formidable ally or a feared enemy. I very much enjoyed the dance, and I was pleased to get a chance at conversation with him.
    Eshken A man of few words, though the ones he chooses seem to carry much weight. Interesting, if not difficult to read.
    Evaristo Looks like we might be sailing together soon. Less boisterous than his cousin Prince, but I'm intrigued to meet him more.
    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.
    Flavien I can only find myself feeling quite drawn to a prince with a blunt disregard for the niceties I fail at so often. His body is a weapon, and his mind seems similarly sharp. Perhaps I will have to see this Thraxian in action.
    Galen He seems knowledgable, reasonable - makes thought out assessments. A Thrax strategist through and through.
    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.
    Garret A man that speaks plainly. Reseved and contemplative, a good drinking companion for a quiet day.
    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.
    Helena Not my first impression, but perhaps my thirty-first at this point, because he is a difficult man to summarize. The phrase still waters run deep comes to mind.
    Helle The Lover. Most certainly not a tree. Thinks I'm not, too. He's probably right. Probably.
    Ian Solid. Stable. Competent.
    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.
    Jan Seems like a capable warrior. And if the rumors I heard were true, we're not so different, at least in our pashion for things other then sipping tea with lords and ladies. I'll have to make sure we cross cutlasses at the Proving Grounds so I can be sure.
    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.
    Kaia A handsome Thraxian prince who is most definitely /NOT/ a storyteller (he kept saying so, so I'll believe him), and would rather send you to his cousin-in-law, Princess Sorrel if you are in most desperately need of one; he seems to be a man of concise, but precise words. Cordial and polite, he has my respect.
    Kaldur The Prince might have something wrong with his hands. Perhaps he should see a Physician. Or a Mercy. He has a quiet way about him.
    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.
    Lore A man of few words and much action, Prince Jasher is someone worth knowing. The rarity of his smiles make them all the more intriguing when they appear.
    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.
    Lou Thoughtful, reserved, and always asks questions. He's also quite skilled as an explorer, and I have been glad to have been with him on past adventures.
    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?
    Lysander To find a handsome stranger and find out later he's a princess by another's admission has to be my favorite impression of someone. Maybe he'll tell me all about it over some Thraxian Rum.
    Mabelle They say he doesnt smile and a man of few words. Maybe they just didnt know how to talk to him.
    Macda For sitting in a library, he was very reserved. Perhaps he dislikes the unexpected, or the unannounced.
    Maja A prince of Thrax! He is so stoic but one expects that of noblemen, especially those from House Thrax. I hope I made a good impression; I could not really tell one way or another!
    Martino Perhaps the less serious, of a serious group of Thraxian Princes. But he was glad to be away from the usual loud noise from his own wards to break fast with me. Thinking ahead, offering opportunity to others. Truly a fine Prince.
    Maru A thoughtful young man who uses his words sparingly. Not that his silence should be mistaken for a lack of wits. He has those aplenty.
    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!
    Mirk Quiet, and philosophical, though the latter might be inspired by where he finds himself. He makes good points, all the same.
    Monique Finder of licentious love notes and has a marked dislike, it seemed, for bloodthirstiness. He seems measured and most like a philosopher.
    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.
    Norwood How he managed to not be unruffled I do not know at all.
    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...
    Raimon A man of few words who gets right to the point. I expect we will get along.
    Reese I seen him a few times. He seems serious, composed and not one to reveal much to the world.
    Renata There's a sadness to this man. Perhaps it was simply the same sadness which swept across the whole of city in the wake of the green snow. It'd be interesting to meet him under different circumstances when the world is not so /odd/.
    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!
    Sanya The prince is intelligent and reflective, I enjoy conversing with him on various topics.
    Selene Always our paths seem to cross in the most unlikely of places. I turn and there he is, blown in on a zephyr, smelling of the sea. A deadpan terseness to him is entirely appealing.
    Sophie He tries so hard to pretend like he doesn't care. I think he does. I pray that he finds the peace he came to the Shrine of Lagoma seeking. May Our Lady of Change help us all through these times.
    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?
    Tatienne A Thrax prince, a sailor of some kind. Dry sense of humour, potential customer. Let's keep tabs on him.
    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.
    Tomwell Doesn't say too much, does he? But what he did say was worth being said, so perhaps it's a trait I could learn from.
    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.
    Vega Exactly as I remember him, save perhaps that he has grown taller and more muscular since even the last time I saw him. It is wonderful to see him again.
    Venturo A prince of few words, but this is not to be mistaken as uninterested. Observant and with a like of rum, I anticipate him being the sort that sees much, but speaks little.
    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.
    Wash Still up for anything. I'm glad he's still putting those leadership skills to use at sea.
    Zeriax A polished steel is still as cool as rough hewn stone under shade, waiting for that moment to shine. When it does, the bite of a sharpened edge is sure to accompany the flash of sun on steel.
    Zoey There are several similarities between he and Ian. If possible, however, he's just that much more taciturn.
