Character type: Crafter
Appearance: A short, compact and muscular man, Jausen carries his age well. His tanned face is lined, and his once dark brown hair is now streaked with grey, but it only adds to the image of a honest hard worker that he truly is.
Personality: Jausen is the epitome of good father, husband and caregiver. It's not to say that he doesn't have his faults, and he can be a bit too strict with his family, but in his mind it's all for their good. Family, to him, comes first above all, and everything he does is for their benefit and protection. He's worse than a mother hen about his children, and while he recognizes their need to branch out and grow, they'll always be his and always need his protection, whether they realize it or not.
History: Jausen was born at Lemos Hold, raised amidst the abundance of trees and forests that would be so much a part of his future. Raised by a single mother and several older sisters, Jausen learned to respect women early on, and as he grew became the protector and provider, the only man amongst six women.
