Character Relationship Status
Shaved dark brown hair, clean shaved face with a strong square jawline. Dark circles permanently set under his eyes, giving him an exhausted look. Strong hooked nose, a little crooked in the middle. Downturned dark green eyes, naturally upturned, big mouth with lips a little too plump for his face, softening it. 1.98m tall (6'5), naturally lithe, far from a gym rat (which makes people question his health, sometimes). Clumsy, very thin and long fingers, very pale from the lack of exposure in sunlight. Always in black, gray or navy blue casual smart clothing. On both his hands, a thick golden wedding band adorns his ring fingers to symbolize his faith and specialty, as an ordained Cleric
Despite his appearance, tall and skinny and always in button up shirts and jackets (which results in many people referring to him as Slenderman) he is a gentle giant. Soft spoken, charismatic, a silent force of nature. Hides a really dark side by being fiercely loyal to his religion. Very generous and altruistic, adores dark humor and puns. Intuitive and sensitive to the people around him, their emotions and moods. Celibate by choice, albeit not immune to temptation
Helping others, reading, taking care of animals, meeting new people, riddles, travelling, the outdoors, has a soft spot for vests (and a huge collection of them with matching cufflinks)
Mindless violence, being mocked for his beliefs, prideful people, crowded spaces, being taken for granted
The Book of Happenings which is his churches 'bible' of sorts. The Faith Bands on his fingers are indestructible and can be used to amplify his strength. His wardrobe is fireproof. A vial of Holy Water, a Glock .22 with custom made Blessed bullets in a variety of materials (wood, silver, steel, 2 magazines each)
A clerics power relies solely on the power of their own faith and power of will. The more fiercely they believe they can do it, their divine patron blesses them with the power to do it. It is a double edged sword though, as doubt in themselves and their patron, is their greatest weakness. They do not possess any distinctive physical traits, besides their slowed down aging, giving them an average lifespan of 110 years. Their bodies aren't immune to aging, diseases or wounds, but they tend to look younger than their actual age. Jin uses his willpower and inventory to perform exorcisms, healing, tracking rituals and protective barriers or blessings. Clerics are known for being the best healers anyone could ask for, but if the need arises, Jin knows how to fight. His combat style is mainly defensive and disarming, his goal is to restrain his opponent while causing as little damage as possible. But, he is only human, and there were times where he lost control. Has limited access to elemental magic such as creating and manipulating fire. Can also use gushes of wind to move things. Can freeze water or liquify ice.
Jin Hawthorn was born in a very conservative household, the 13th and last child. His father and mother were both preachers and keeping an emotional distace from all their children, which made little Jin and his siblings to grow up emotionally distant and cold. Since he were a little boy, he helped in the community, his faith innocent and absolute in the safe bubble of their isolated village.
Until he turned 18 and moved to the city with his brother and sister to study theology and get through his cleric training.
In the span of 6 months, his life turned upside down. Mingling with so many new and different people was mind-blowing for his conservative redneck brain. Life in college showed him what he've been missing, from food to entertainment and dating. He discovered, through a 'sinful' series of weed and alcohol soaked parties, he was bisexual. He even involved in a polyamorous relationship for months with two of his classmates, a woman and a man. While he'd never felt more alive and happy, he dreaded seeing the reaction of his parents and siblings, except of the two he lived with, they knew and supported him.
His happiness was cut short when after a party him, his lovers and his two siblings got stupid drunk. His sister decided to drunkinly drive them back to their dorm, 2 blocks away. They T-boned another car, his girlfriend was killed instantly. His siblings in the ambulance. His boyfriend ended up losing his left leg. Jin woke up unable to feel past his waist.
The intense force of grief, heartbreak and guilt took him into a dark place. Locked in his family home to recover, no painkillers to numb him, he went through 2 years of depression, licking his wounds. Fellow healers cured his paralysis but his spirit was broken. His parents urged him to return to his faith and church to heal through praying, having no idea. Seeing he couldn't be honest with them about his pain, or even who he really was, he took their advice. Praying every single day for forgiveness, guidance and peace for the souls of his siblings and girlfriend. His fierce passion and faith helped his powers grow, more than he ever imagined.
He completed his studies with flying colors. The first thing he did when ordained, was visit his old boyfriend. He healed some ugly burn scars on his face and happily offered to marry him and his fiance.
Even though his religion allows it, he prefers not to get physical with anyone. Keeps a safe distance from his family. There are times when his depression creeps back up and can affect his work.
Nowadays his goal is to help and heal whoever, whenever they need him, so he travels a lot.
