Description

Tall and athletic, Jerrica's forest green eyes are always alert and tend to brighten when faced with any sort of argument or debate. Her skin is deeply tanned from spending hours upon hours out in the sun and her long, wavy brown hair is often left loose around her shoulders, not really as a statement of fashion but because she often forgets she should do something with it.

Personality

Jerrica is almost always moving?she has a tremendous energy and presence to her, always looking to seek out an injustice and right it! Or at least argue it into submission. She has a huge heart and a fondness for animals of all kinds. She will always, always root for the underdog and do her best to make them a winner. She's energetic and stubborn and has a tendency to argue past the point where other people would drop it out of politeness. She tends to fiercely believe in things and wants everyone else to see it her way. She's a pacifist who wants to honor Gloria by being virtuous and of course is particularly drawn to Petrichor because she loves nature. Where there's injustice or war in the world Jerrica wants to be there to make it right. Regardless of whether anyone else wants her there.

Background

It was always assumed that as the first daughter Jerrica would take up a martial path. She talked early and often and her strong opinions varying from what was offered for dinner to the way the gardens at the house were kept were at first met with smiles for her zeal and then grimaces when she would find something she thought was wrong and harp on it until people would have it changed. She was trained in the finer points of archery at a young age and seemed to take to it, but when she was six years old she was brought along on her first boar hunt and was so horrified by how many armed nobles chased the poor, terrified animal and how brutally it was ultimately brought down. And then they expected her to eat it! Her parents tried to explain that boars were dangerous creatures that were responsible for many a stray hunter's death but Jerrica would have none of it--and from that day forward never again ate meat in her life. Sure, the boar might have been dangerous, but it was just one boar being chased and heckled by a dozen or more armed men and women on horseback! Every year after that she campaigned to end hunts for sport, something her parents would not give in to. She still attended, chanting in a loud voice about how barbaric it all was until she was just left at home in her teenage years to not cause yet another scene in front of her parents' friends.

From Bastion she embarked on many a letter writing campaign to numerous other houses and dignitaries in Arx, railing against practices she found lacking, such as going to war so often. Jerrica simply could not understand why so many men and women needed to die for a cause when so many things could be worked out through mediation. Many of those letters (most really) went unanswered, but she found herself with a growing interest in diplomacy because of it. Soon she realized that in order to use these skills she needed to be in Arx and wrote her parents a 52 page manuscript detailing all the reasons why they should send her to the city. They took one look at the pile of papers and decided to just send her, much to her delight.
