"What is life but death pending?"

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Wher- Adopt / Retire - Character
NAME: Jonathan, called Jon by friends, close family calls him Johnny
GENDER: Male
PRONOUNS: He/Him/His
ORIENTATION: Bisexual

BIRTHDATE: Autumn 2732
AGE: 35 as of 2767
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Journeyman Healer
WING: Healer's

APPEARANCE
EYES: Pale Blue
HAIR: Black, slicked back on top with an undercut
HEIGHT AND BUILD: Six foot two, strong arms and generally stronger than he looks, but is very much on the lean and lanky side
PLAY-BY: Jonathan Reid (Vampyr)
FULL APPEARANCE:
Jonathan is a tall, slimly yet athletically built man with a crooked, hooked nose and a crazy rad beard. His eyes are nearly always bloodshot with dark circles underneath because he always finds himself staying up way longer than he needs to be. His skin is very pale and his incisors are a little sharp. He has two noticeable scars, both of them small, one on the bridge of his nose and the other going down his upper left cheekbone.

He finds himself wearing fancy clothing, long coats, collared shirts and vests, things along that vein. Darker colors like black, grey and red seem to suit him best.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
A former egotistical, self-centered, ‘I can do no wrong and I know how to fix every problem’ sort of guy, Jonathan received a complete personality shock the day his father left and never returned, a sore subject that he still feels guilt for. Now, he has calmed himself down and took a step back, became a man who tries to help everyone he can out of the goodness of his heart, no matter if they are his patients or a friend with a favor. He’s a friendly, smooth talking, intelligent, with a knack for being persuasive. Jon is a man of science, a healer, and sees himself as that before anything else. He will do anything to further the pursuit of knowledge, that is, if his morals allow it.

Despite his newfound good nature, he never fully dropped his former self. He is incredibly nosy, digging into other people’s business when he should not. Although he now at least listens to other points of view to aid with his own to end with the best result, he still believes that his way is the best way. He has a temper boiling on low heat that can and will burst out if a situation gets tough, but it's easier for him to reel it in than before.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Aubrey of Bronze Solvirith (father, deceased), Emelyne (mother), Mary (twin sister), Ralph (brother-in-law, deceased), William (nephew, brother)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Fort Weyr
HISTORY:
Jonathan was the eldest of two twin siblings. As a child, Jonathan was fascinated with healers, what they could do, what they could accomplish. While his sister had stayed home, lived a fairly normal life, Jon thought himself fit for greater achievements. He left for Healer Hall as soon as possible to pursue the one thing he found somewhat interesting. As he studied, crammed, learned everything he could, his father came down with a sickness during the later end of Jon’s craft-pursuing that he did not tell his family about. In his letters to Jonathan, everything seemed peachy back home.

After his graduation and subsequent return home, he picked up on certain signs of his father’s illness, the cough, the fever, the sluggishness, and more. All symptoms had gotten worse without treatment, and Jon could not pinpoint a cause or cure. One night, not wishing to cause the family any more distress, he left Fort Weyr and didn’t look back in an attempt to stop Jonathan from feeling bad that he was not able to save him when it was truly his job to do so. Leaving a letter behind that Jonathan was instructed to read at the age of thirty-five, Aubrey was never seen again and presumed to be dead.

Jonathan took his father’s death to heart, blaming himself. He couldn’t bear to see the grief that he thought that he put his family through, so he left once more. He travelled from hold to hold, visiting to help them with their sicknesses if they had no resident healer, or to aid them if they did have one. A few years passed and he found himself lonely, sure, he made acquaintances with people from one hold to the next, but there was no accompaniment. He missed his family, felt that maybe the years away from them had been enough, made him a better man. It was time to return home.

On his trip back, he felt as if he was being followed, the feeling of eyes staring him down the whole way. Jon soon figured out soon enough that what followed him was a wild green wher. It approached him soon enough, seemed to make no move to hurt him so Jon made no move to run away. Feeling a sharp pain in his hand, he looked down to notice that the green had, in fact, bit him. Ow. Disinfecting the cut as soon as possible, Jon had a newfound companion once he reached the Weyr.

Her hide is a bright yet soft green color the whole way through, with certain spots fading into a lighter, brighter green.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Jonask is a caretaker, a warm-hearted wher with a distinct morals that want her to perform good deeds that aid her Weyr over those that would not. She has a certain fondness for children, wanting to help with whatever problems arise with them. As well as this, she is fond of the elderly, and attempts to take care of them as gently as possible. Jonask is intelligent beyond her years with a generous heart, wise words come from this wher. She also has a great interest in art, and likes listening to the harpers sing.

The first bit of personality needs to be moved to history. That section is for how a person is, not how they used to be. A short mention of "this isn't how he always was, but..." is fine, but any description of how he was needs to be elsewhere. V'ako of mine is an example of someone whose personality changed in history.

His father's illness going untreated at Fort Weyr is extremely implausible. He was a bronzerider, this would have been noticed and they would have dragged him to the Healers kicking and screaming if need be. Also a bronzerider can't just... up and leave. Additionally, the Weyrs have plenty of Healers to study under, and going to the Hall is unnecessary for someone there. This section might make more sense if he were from a smaller cothold.

Lastly, Jonask needs to have a reason to choose to bond with him. Adult wild whers don't just choose at random (or if they're not always wild, and just desperately looking for human companionship and do, this should be stated).
