JOSELYN DOONE |NINETEEN|COMPANION|NEUTRAL|Full Name:
Jos is a lean young man with a build more akin to a track runner than wrestler. He is average in his height, and is relatively healthy, despite his circumstances. There is an air of intelligence to him, that reflects in his blue eyes even during his calmest moments. He holds a certain gangly awkwardness typical of young men growing into themselves. Still, Joselyn is graceful enough, and his moves hold a measured carefulness.
Atop his head are masses of tangled curls, which vary in color from a rich red to a strawberry blonde, depending on the amounts of time he spends in the sun, or the season. He doesn't tend much to his curls, and they lie in a mess atop his head, tousled and wild.
His features are fine and angular, with a sensual, red mouth and doelike, intense eyes. There is a childlike quality to his features, but they hold a look about them that speaks bounds of the world he knows so very well. His eyes speak of an old soul who has known much of the world.
There are few distinctive marks on Joselyn's body, save for a brand on his wrist. He covers this mark at all times, and will, under no circumstances, show it to anyone. The brand consists of a crude, homemade mark, in a “x” shape.Personality:
Joselyn is a quiet, intelligent young man. Well educated and soft-spoken, he keeps to himself. He is painfully shy, and hates to hold conversation with those he does not know well, and even with those, he is reserved and meek. For the most part, Josie is compliant and obedient, though he is very protective of his younger siblings, even Helmuth, whom he has come to resent for the favor shown by his stepfather.
Jos desperately wants the approval of those around him. He is eager to please and agonizingly self conscious. He tends to appear distant, if not cold and aloof. He has very few friends, and keeps secrets very well. He fears to his core that someone will find out exactly what it is that his life consists of.
Joselyn is endlessly clever, and he is very detailed in his work. His notes are efficient and clear, and he likes to have everything organized in its proper place. His work is, after all, the only thing he has any control over in his life, and as such, he tries very hard to do a good job. He becomes quite frantic and stressed when things are not orderly or properly attended to. He frets and worries over schedules and times, and keeps himself busy, so he has no time to think of the things that plague him. If he keeps his mind and his hands occupied, things don't seem so bad.
Joselyn enjoys reading, when and if he has the time, and has a keen mind for philosophy. He likes games of strategy, but scarcely has the time or the people to play them with.History:
