“Cat got your tongue, huh? Oh well. More peace for me.”
Tattoos: Only one. It’s a black serpent, curling behind his left ear.
Piercings: Jet has small black studs in the main piercing in both of his earlobes. He has matching black ear cuffs for each ear as well.
Signature jewelry: Jethro will never be caught dead without the simple silver chain he constantly wears around his neck. It was his only possession found on him as a baby.
Body hair: Jethro was not blessed by the masculine gods and doesn’t have much thick, dark body hair. Legend has it that he’s actually a blond that dyes his hair black every so often.
Other important body aspects: Jethro doesn’t have a very stocky build. Really, he’s very lean with some muscle.
Preferred hairstyle: Jet keeps his hair on the longer side, nearly a mullet but more stylish. It’s always pitch black.

Dominant hand: Right hand
Blood type: O Negative
“Fire me if I piss you off so much. But don’t come knocking at my door when no one in this whole goddamn lab can even do a geometric sequence and you’ve lost your only competent worker.”
Personality: Jethro is… well, to put it bluntly, Jethro is a bitch. He’s standoffish and rude to anyone that rubs him in the wrong way or happens to make him uncomfortable. And many, many people make him uncomfortable. Jet truly believes that there is no reason to be kind or even courteous, as most business can still get done just the same when he’s being cold. Speaking of cold, Jethro is careful not to let any emotion show. That is, besides anger. You’re lucky to catch him actually laughing at anything. But you will be sure to catch him with that little self-righteous smirk on his face. He’s very unsure of himself, so to counter that he acts like he’s the hottest shit in the wild, wild west. Be prepared to “deal” with him rather than to meet him.
“If you make my life any harder than it has to be, I will make sure your life is unbearable.”
Speech style: Low and at a normal pace. He doesn’t raise his voice unless he’s angry, and he’ll often talk slower in somewhat of a drawl to mock certain people.
Accent: American. Sometimes when he’s mad a strange lilt comes out of his voice, as if he was once from somewhere else.
Loud/quiet? Quiet until provoked.
Solo/team player? Solo.
“I watch what I say. Unlike these pea brains who shit from their mouth and call it poetry, I am capable of convincing those in power to do what you want.”
History: This bitch was abandoned at birth. That’s right, you heard me. His adoptive parents say they found him on the edge of the crack, supposedly a sacrifice to the monsters living in the sky. There were definitely some religious zealots in Kilead who thought “Yeah, let’s sacrifice this baby, that sounds like an amazing idea.” Luckily, Jethro’s adoptive mother happened to be assigned to work near the surface and had found him there before anything bad happened. She named him Jethro Harlan, which roughly translates to “eminent dweller by the boundary wood.” Fitting, as she had found him on the boundary of safety and certain death. Jet was then raised by his adoptive mother and father. They weren’t amazing parents, but they also didn’t leave him to die, which was a step up from his birth parents. The boy had a knack early on for math and sciences and was accepted into a gifted program run by the KIlead government. He continued to excel and advance in the gifted program until he was accepted into a prestigious school to train the government’s future scientists. Once again he excelled and ended up at the forefront of developing dangerous sciences for the Kilead government. It’s important to note that Jethro has never fit in perfectly in his workplace; he was the youngest and most gifted to be granted access to work on such a crucial project at only 22. None of the other scientists, who were well in their forties, liked him, but it didn’t matter because they needed Jethro if they wanted to advance the project. Therefore, they had to tolerate him.
“I don’t need to overcompensate because I don’t have a microdick like you do, asshole.”
Likes: He insists that there is nothing in this world he likes. However, he does have a soft spot in his heart for cats. And though you will never get it out of him, he loves to embroider. Obviously, he also loves math and science. He enjoys reading fantasy stories.
Dislikes: Writing. Jet is mortal enemies with every English paper he’s ever had to write. He hates doing it and he completely refuses to do it in his current job. (It gets pushed onto someone else when they need to write a report). He also hates being embarrassed and hates being around the majority of people.
Allergies: Jethro is ever so slightly allergic to pollen, so allergy season is somewhat rough for him.
Hobbies: Secret embroidery, reading fantasy novels, working out tough math problems, seething at anything that happened to get in his way that day, petting cats, and pondering his existence.
A death glare that could slay thousands “One more word and your job is at stake.”
Strengths: Jethro is obviously pretty good at math and science. He’s also got a way with words and is pretty good at getting what he wants when he wants it. He can also give a good speech when he needs to.
Weaknesses: We’ve already established that he’s not the best at writing. He’s also not terribly strong and could not win a fight if he started one. Generally, in that case, he’ll use his words to get out of it.
Fears: being embarrassed, people thinking he’s gay, the monsters in the sky, not having a purpose, and abandonment.
Motivators: Jethro will do anything just to prove he can do it. If anyone challenges him, he will follow through. He also often completes things just to prove his existence means something.
Deep hatreds: His birth parents.
Fatal flaws: Jethro has such a deep-set hatred for himself that often he’ll act cocky to overcompensate. This gets him into a lot of trouble.
“I’d suggest shutting up before you say something you REALLY don’t want me to hear.”

“There is no one I hate more than myself. And do you know what that means? It means that I’m constantly trying to one-up my worst enemy.”
Family: His adoptive mother and father, Paula and Craig. His adoptive brother, who is nearly five, is named Otis.
Friends: Not applicable.
First memory: Getting accepted into the gifted program for children run by the government.
Worst memory: Nearly drowning in the canals beneath Kilead while his adoptive parents left him unsupervised. From there he took a couple of swimming lessons so he’d never get into a situation like that again.
Best memory: Graduating from school and being accepted into the team working on the development of militant superpowers.
Living quarters: Jethro lives in an apartment by himself in the skylines of Kilead. It’s quite a nice apartment too, as he gets a lot of money from his job as a scientist.

Signature smell: Montale Red Vetiver
Eye color: Light grey
Book or street smarts: Book, 100%. He does have some common sense but it is greatly outweighed by his book smarts.
Can they swim: Enough to stay alive in an emergency. Aka, he can doggy paddle.
Old or new soul: Old soul, very much so.
Kin list: Assuming he was living in a normal human society, Jet would totally kin pretty much any angsty teen in any show or movie. He would also kin the Joker.
Languages they’d learn: If Jethro was living in a normal human society, he would have learned English along with Hebrew and Latin.
Books they’d read: Assuming he was in a normal human society, Jethro would likely LOVE The Hunger Games series and the ACOTAR series.
“I could make two phone calls and have you banished out of Kilead.”
Other: Jet is somewhat of a loyalist. He’s very committed to serving his government, no matter the legal or moral implications. However, it’s important to note that he has also been brainwashed to blindly follow what the people in power say since he was six. Should anyone actually show him something worth fighting for, he’s likely to at least consider it.
“Hit me and you’ll regret it.”
