General Information
A strange little Hyur originating from Ishgard who works out of Ul'dah and the Mists. He can go from a well-spoken, albeit awkward, man to an ill-tempered ruffian who would love to do nothing more than discuss how to best punch an eye out of an opponent's socket. He is impulsive and reckless but loyal to a fault. He dislikes the cold and being at sea. He enjoys reading, caring for chocobos, and being around his shady friends. Following a max exodus out of his old group, he moved his business out of Limsa Lominsa and into the back alleys of Ul'Dah. He currently lives off the radar and prefers to remain around the people who are in the same situation, namely the Orchids.
A bit of a prick.
Jean is a short, thin Midlander who favors dark clothing. He wears his hair chin-length and somewhat messy. His left eye has been cut out, leaving a nasty jagged scar on that side that he usually covers with a patch or has a glass eye that’s several shades lighter than his natural eye color. He has sunken in cheeks and dark circles under his eyes that could easily be mistaken for eye makeup when in actually it's just his face. This in combination with his alarmingly pale pallor make him appear sickly but in actuality he can be an alarmingly tenacious opponent who isn't afraid to resort to dirty tactics. Despite his short size he can be a rather intimidating figure for the average Eorzean to handle with his quick personality changes and his even quicker temper. He has a high pain tolerance and a near animalistic fighting style. Under the clothes, Jean is extremely thin, almost alarmingly so. The left side of his torso is riddled with old burn scars, leaving him with limited sensation on that side. On his left hand the ring and middle finger have both been amputated at the base.
Dark grey Ginger Pale and sickly Thin, small Scratchy, deep
Stand offish Right entirely . . .
Hair & Eyes
Jean's hair is naturally red. It's straight, sloppily cut (by him) and usually pretty well taken care of. His right eye is slate grey and his left is a gaping hole either covered by a patch or with a silvery-grey glass eye in it.
Physique & Markings
Jean is a very thin man with prominant ribs and a nearly concave stomach. Malnutrition and years of poor health has left him with a fairly sickly pallor marred by scars, especially the burn scars that line his upper left torso and left arm all the way down to his fingers.
Hygiene & Attire
His hygiene is nothing special. He bathes when he needs to and he keeps relatively clean. Clothing, on the other hand, tends to be where he really shines. His clothes range from leather jackets and things more befitting a man in his position to fine silk gowns bought from Xaela merchants or stolen from some poor Ishgardian noblewoman's wardrobe.
Psychological Profile
In recent months his ability to be open to people and express intimacy has undergone a transformation from repression to just embracing things and people he likes most be this clothing or the comfort of a friend. As a result, although he still has a great deal of mental issues to work with, his mental state is steadily improving. Finding a balance between his more standoffish personality of the old days and his newer one that's far more agreeable bordering on overbearing has become what should be a priority in his life.
His vocal cords are damaged from both years of smoking and also from an old injury to his throat. As a result he sounds a bit raspy at times, but his voice isn't all together unpleasant. The raspiness adds a bit of ruggedness that his otherwise thin, small frame wouldn't allow for.
Philosophy & Mannerisms
Jean is a fighter and a tenacious one at that. He approaches life in a way that might be chaotic but it works for him and his lifestyle. Mannerisms tend to be varied, he can go from well spoken to speaking like a common thug in the drop of a hat.

Combat Abilities
No method, just mauling: Jean is a bit of a dirty fighter. He usually fist fights but he’s not opposed to biting, clawing, scratching, kicking, using furniture, and other “skills” that require no training. He’s not formally trained, most of what he knows comes from fighting for profit and to stay alive in Eorzea, so almost all of it is improvisation.
Poison everyone: Jean is not the most practiced arcanist, but months at sea with little to do but lay in bed seasick have led him to spend a lot of his time practicing bio and miasma spells. He's actually fairly good at them and knows how to practically apply them in combat.
Masochism: The man is a notorious masochist for whatever reason. This leaves him with an insanely high tolerance to pain, but it's a bit of a double edged sword as while he can stand a tremendous amount of pain it also leaves him unable to stop fighting when he long should have. Fighting to the point of loosing consciousness was a fairly common occurrence in the past for him.
OOC Note
Any relevant notes about combat should be added here, such as player preference, system preference, or links off-site to sheets using existing XIV player-made combat systems.

Disclaimer: This is an extremely brief history and does not cover ever important event aside from the most recent.
Sixth Astral Era
Jean was born to simple alchemists in Ishgard. His childhood was lonely and isolated, as a sickly but angry child he had no friends and only learned at home so he had no opportunities to make school friends. His sister received all the attention and opportunities, eventually rising up to serve with the Temple Knights. Jean was supposed to simply work the family shop and do little else. He ran away and chose to lead a life of crime instead of being underappreciated in his own home.
Seventh Umbral Era
The Calamity did little to curb Jean's efforts in working in the underground. Instead of his old routine, he opted to scavenge the battlefields for scrap to sell. He established contact with some criminal groups, making friends and enemies, usurping competition, stabbing people. Same old same old.
In Recent Times
Moving Forward

His involvement with the Realmsward, brief as it was, left him disillusioned for a time. Being a spy he values secrecy above all and he felt betrayed once he saw the Realmsward as little more than a pompous noble playing war. He started pledging himself to many causes and people, with little regard for himself until it finally lead him to a horrific mental break down. It was after that that he realized he needed to leave Eorzea for a while, until he can figure out himself.

Jean is currently working and living in Kugane with his husband Qa for personal reasons. Treatment from others started to get under his skin until an opportunity to travel presented itself from one of his new contacts. He took the opportunity without a second thought and left in search of a Garlean Primus Pilus he was to collect information on. Despite loosing information on his target and contact with his leader, he's glad he took this opportunity. Starting anew has given him a newfound confidence, even if he has made few friends returning to his abrasive ways.

◢ Uncommon Rumors - A little more difficult to hear. Use sparingly or ask first!

The Orchid: Free Company, works for them and lives with them.
IC Inventory
The following items are things that this individual carries on their person at all times. This information is meant to be a prompt for insight and is not to be meta-gamed, though feel free to use this information if it comes up logically in RP (pickpocketing, a search, etc) with use of a simple /tell.


Glass Eye: A simple false eye with a silvery iris. Looks nearly real if it weren’t for the unnatural color.
Cobalt Knuckles: Jean's weapon when bare fists aren't enough
Knife: Jean's weapon for when bare fists OR cobalt knuckles aren't enough.
RP Limits
I like to consider myself a flexible player who is willing to commit to a number of different types of scenes and role-play scenarios, but even I have my limits. If something is on the play list, assume it means yes, as long as it's within the context of the current play or ongoing plot. No's are typically a hard no, and it means don't ask.
I will play . Violent scenes, crime, injury, darker themes.
Ask about . Incapacitating him in the long term
I won't play . Rape, killing him off.
RP Hooks
While the below is by no means comprehensive, it's a kind of spring board for walk-up RP. Longer plots that are meant to run for more than a few quick RP's, please feel free to send me a tell so we can work out a good reason for our characters to get to know one another. I'm always looking for RP, unless I'm actively spamming PvE content.
■ There's a strange foreigner in the sewers of Kugane, often with a large Xaela by his side. Who is he and what does he want?
■ There's a pretty lad named Scarlet in Kugane who has an eye for Garlean men...for the right price. Offering companionship for gil's fine and all but sometimes these men don't get seen for a while...

Player Note
There is a lot of information on this character wiki, but it is by no means completely comprehensive. There are chunks of backstory that are left intentionally vague so that details can be later added as developed through creative writing or in role-play revelation. Feel free to use Common or Uncommon rumors freely, if you want to use a Rare Rumor as a plot hook or to spark RP, I would ask that you send me a tell first, to make certain it's alright.
