Persona Profile: J'ren


Name: J'ren
Age: 34
Birthday: m4 d21
Rank: Wingrider, Cobalt Wing
Location: Dragonsfall Weyr

Physical Description of Persona:
J'ren is 6'0'' and 205 or so pounds. He has hair that is just in between blonde and brown. He has a heavyset build and a deep tan from all the time spent outside. His eyes are a dark green, sometimes changing to hazel. A long, thin scar runs down his left arm.

Emotional Description of Persona:
J'ren is a fairly easygoing man, always willing to lend a hand to anyone. He is very patient, and it takes a lot to make him very angry. Cool and collected when angry or challenged, he holds his own in arguments. While lines of long-ago pain tighten his eyes, laugh lines also surround his mouth. His friends consider him a kind man, involved and interested in what happens to others around him.

History of Persona:
J'ren was born Jarren, to a greenrider and a bronzerider at River Bluff Weyr. His parents were weyrmated and raised him as well as they could, and he had a happy childhood. His mother Elarena had various pregnancies but ended them all /between/. When Jarren was six she decided to keep the baby she was pregnant with. However, Elarena was never a very strong woman, and she died bearing the baby. Heartbroken, Jarren's father J'kann decided to transfer away from Jarren and his baby sister Elaren and the painful memories of Elarena. He left Jarren and Elaren to the care of a foster mother and left without a second look back.

Jarren adored his baby sister and spent most of his time looking after her, caring for her, feeding her. The foster mother, Aminna, was caring for several other children and welcomed his help. Most children didn't know how to act around him, so he made very few friends. As Elaren grew up, she was increasingly shy and prone to illnesses. But she adored Jarren, and he adored her.

When Elaren was five, Aminna was over at her weyrmate's weyr for the night. Jarren was watching Elaren for her. In the middle of the night she began to toss and turn and heat up in her bed. Frantic, Jarren ran to find a healer. But by the time he returned, it was too late.

Elaren's death left a tragic toll on Jarren's life. Though he tried not to show it, he was hurt to the core. However, when he was thirteen Aminna asked him if he wanted to stand, figuring that a dragon could take Elaren's place in his life. He said he would and stood for a Turn before Impressing his beloved bronze Kenaranth. He soon got over his shyness and sorrow and became one of the more outgoing and popular riders. He was valued in the wings for his quick thinking and dependability, and it was only a matter of time before he became Wingsecond in Torrent Wing.
