Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: J'sco is quite good looking, though neither brother realizes how attractive they both are. His eyes, the color of a frozen lake, often melt when he's with a friend or D'nte. (Not to mention always around Zehnsth...and Velveyt and Anabela....)
Personality: J'sco isn't as tough as he'd like to be. Much of his bluster never rang true, and he did everything he could to please his father, his once idol. A harsh word from M'caus would leave him sobbing late at night in his half-brother's shoulder, even at sixteen. Nevertheless, he constantly tried and still attempts to hold leadership roles. J'sco was a little uncertain around girls, and whenever one was near, he tended to become slightly goofy. Now that he has Velveyt, he's become much more confident around girls, although he has no attraction for anyone save Velveyt.
History: The mother of J'sco was just another lover of M'caus'. True, she was a Lower Caverns worker, but she was, to M'caus' eyes, a woman. So he seduced and bedded her, and got her pregnant. Unfortunately, she died giving birth, and M'caus proceeded to foster him off to the same woman who he had fostered his other son to. The babe, whom old Maude named Jalisco after her own father, quickly became attached to his half-brother Delante and foster-mother Maude, and was following Delante around by the time he could crawl.
