Weight: 168 lbs
Build and Skin Color: Jin Pho'tet is a physically strong and lean fighter with chalk white skin. His muscles are tight and corded with the supple strength of a confident soldier.
Eyes and Facial Features: Jin's bright blue eyes are reminiscent of an onlooker of a sunlit beach in some remote, exotic sea. Traces of green and cobalt make for a shocking effect, especially when he smiles. He has a neatly trimmed short goatee of dark, black hair gracing his angular chin.
Hair Color and Style: Dark black hair with a likeness to obsidian is constantly pulled back into a tight pony-tail, which he routinely cuts off when deployed on long, dangerous missions.
Distinguishing Features: The classic two horns that literally make his race stick out in a crowd are wonderfully long and curved atop Jin's head. Each one gets progressively darker in color until just the very tips are as black as his hair. Jin's left fore-arm also bears an intricate tattoo of the full story of his patron Dreamer Vigil, Jafar the Stalwart, while his right entire arm is covered in black tattoos of stylized horizantal bands.
Personality: Jin's personality stems from deep in his past, from the very beginning of his life. He has a problem with letting a mother or father figure get close to him after the death of his parents left him in an orphanage at age five. Older now, he knows, intellectually, that it was not their fault but he still finds himself constantly pushing away from older role models and sticking to spending time with his peers. He has very little of his culture's puritanical beliefs in sexuality, and overtly flirts when drunk or attracted to a female. As far as on the field of battle, he is a single minded machine. He gets what needed done and doesn't ask questions. His fellow soldiers know he is dependable, but refuse to play any games of chance with him due to an odd run of luck.
Likes: The feeling of having a weapon in hand; incense making; hookah; starships.
Dislikes: Being defenseless; weak-willed individuals; sleeping in hot environments.
Goals: To become a Combat Officer in the Astral Vanguard, become a hero to his people.
At the tender age of five, Jin was the sole survivor of a terrible accident in his home. Both of his parents died in a mysterious cave-in of ice and metal inside of their own dwelling on Mazerini. The overflow of frozen tundra pushed the small Iromakuanhe out of their front door and down a communal passage where rescue personnel found him later. With no other alternative, he was sent to a community orphanage where he found it hard to fit in. The trauma he experienced made him a quiet, seperate youngling. Eventually he made a friend, a female Iroma by the name of Keeyash. Keeyash was two years older than Jin and was a big influence as far as how he perceived the world around him. She helped him channel his inner demons and find the Dreamers as well as break his social barriers. To Jin, Keeyash was the total opposite of himself and exactly what he wanted to be: carefree, spiritual, and extroverted. He pushed himself every day to break out of his shell and commune with the Dreamers. Over the years, his life began to seem brighter to him. He started to see what a wonderful world he was apart of, and what kind of people, like Keeyash and some of his new other friends, were a part of it.
Finally, at age sixteen, he made the decision to join the Astral Vanguard. It surprised all his friends, except Keeyash. He didn't need to explain to her that he wanted to give back to a world that had given him so much, even if his beginnings were as dark as they were. He wanted to fight for his friends, who had become like family for him. In Basic Training Jin excelled at everything he was put to, enjoying all of the challenges and even revelling in them. Thanks to Keeyash, he made many friends in the other recruits and became a Platoon Guide by his third week in. After he graduated, top of his class, he took a course in Vehicles to offset his Infantry training. Out of flight class, he was immediately drafted onto the VSV Astarte where he began his hopefully long military career…
