Jaxom Basterfield


The Basics


Full Name: Jaxom Basterfield
Age: 27
Gender/Pronouns: male/him/his/asshole

Ethnicity: Short-lived
Birthplace: Jadera, Little Kaeleer
Current Location: Ravance, Little Kaeler
Profession: Diplomatic Incident Ambassador

Caste: Prince
Birthright Jewel: Green (CUT 56)
Offering Jewel: Red (CUT 20)


Face Claim: Max Irons


The Body


Height: 5'11"
Body Type: Athletic
Hair Color: Red-brown
Eye Color: Grey

Appearance:
Jax knows how to dress to flatter his looks. Dark colors, muted pale shades. Heavy coats, supple gloves. Cuts that broaden his shoulders and chest, but don't add too much bulk. He wants presence without threat. He doesn't need to be physically threatening, since he wears the Red.

He has mastered the 'brooding male' appearance. Dark grey eyes under dark eyebrows, off-set by the lighter hue of his hair, which is almost playful in color. Jax is as aware, or possibly more aware, than most women, when it comes to his appearance and how to use it to his advantage. He's certain he could make smoking look good to a Healer if he put his mind to it.

He smokes thin, black cigarettes that give off a bitter-sweet odor.






The Mind


Craft Strengths: 15pts
Compulsion Spells
Locks
Psychic Wounding
Scent Cleansing
Craft Weaknesses: What's weakness? *scoff*
Weapon Enhancement. Psychic Communication.

Personal Strengths: Uh. Charismatic. Charmer. Well spoken.
Personal Weaknesses: Egotistical shit stirrer. Gossip. Grade A mean girl.

Personality:
A devil-may-care smile. A piercing look. An invitation to spill all your secrets.

Jaxom is a charmer. A salesman. A performer. He learned the art of expression and artifice from the stage. His mother in particular. A wonderful actress, his mother. He learned movement holding up props. Telling tales with body language only. Plays done in perfect silence. Lies upon lies woven together into something people craved. A living, breathing lies people paid marks to succumb too. Yes, the stage was a great teacher.

He knows how to read a crowd. The subtle shifts in demeanor. And Jaxom also knows how to use all these things to his advantage. Usually for extortion. A person can never hold too many Aces up their sleeves. It isn't exactly greed that motivates him, and it certainly isn't any higher power or real sense of duty or obligation. Jaxom just likes the game. And the power it gives him. He likes knowing peoples secrets. And he likes watching them scurry when those secrets slowly but surely leak out.

Jax also enjoys the way people treat you when you know their secrets. This Prince is driven by a deep seated need to be liked. Even if the liking is false, no deeper than a flattering word or a flirting smile, his ego can accept nothing less than adoration from everyone. Except those who hate him out of jealousy (and Jaxom is very good at attributing everything to jealousy).


The Backstory


Family:
  • Madame | Mother | Summer-sky to Purple Dusk witch
  • Sir | Father | White to Tiger Eye Warlord
  • TwinA | Brother | Summer-sky to Opal Caste
  • TwinB | Sister | Summer-sky to Opal Caste

History:

AW74 Born to two stage performers during the end of the winter lull in Jadera. His parents return to the stage that summer.

AW79 Age 5. The twins are born, once again during the winter lull in Jadera. However the following summer his mother is not ready to retake the stage as she'd planned on.

AW82 Age 8. A little late to the game, Jaxom is taken to have his Birthright Ceremony. Paternity is established, and Jax walks away with a Green Jewel, outranking both his parents in Jewel and Caste.

AW84 Age 10. A bond is established. Jaxom has met his puppeteer. No matter what lies he tells himself and the outside world, he is no longer his own man. Not wholly.

AW88 Is this love? Or idiocy? Hormones? Maybe all three...

AW92 Age 18. Why wait? Jaxom makes his Offering and walks out of the Darkness wearing a Red. His smirk can be seen in Kaeleer.

AW93 Jax signs on as a minor flunky for a province court. He spends the never few years serving the usual court penance as he scales the social ladder. He proves more than willing to use the backs, necks, toes and fingers of others as stepping stones.

AW99 Jax signs a contract with Territory Court. Third Circle isn't bad. He proves invaluably useful at gathering information from other courts and often acts as diplomat and flunky. If it isn't always the territory court's best interests he is serving, you can be sure they're someones.
