This first biography is a work in progress, but in all essentials complete.


Main Info:

Name: Jaye Crimthann Thomas Granger

Aliases: Strike, Silver, Light

Gender: Male

Species: Mobian Light Kitsune.  Previously Human.

Age: 17.

Date of Birth: January 27th, 7541 Mobian Calendar.  Also called Jan. 27, 1997 A.D.

Place of Birth: Star Light Zone, South Island.

Current Residence: Hilltop Heights (a few miles north of Station Square), helping to rebuild the city.

Height: ~3'9".

Likes:

- Food: Ham, toast, carrots, and salt/butter/dip to go with each of them.  Condiments are a food group!

- Drink: Tea, ice-water.

- Other: Reading, writing, gaming, resting, exceeding, and many more.

Dislikes:

- Food: A lot of types of vegetables.  His corn allergy is a well-kept secret.

- Drink: Anything with strong amounts of caffeine in it.

- Other: Injustice, viewpoints that don't agree with his 'traditional' ways, conflict, jokes at a person's expense no matter how innocent.

Appearance:

Eye Color: An icy blue, sometimes even called 'crystalline' when his eyes glisten or 'light up'.  However, oftentimes there are bags under his eyes, detracting from the brightness, indicating a hidden depth.

Fur Color: Silver-grey, occasionally reflective but generally not due to the state it's in.

Fur Details: Unless Jaye has made a careful effort to straighten his fur, it'll be fairly messy and tends to stay that way.  It just sticks out in all directions.  However, in contrast, this is usually not noticeable because his coat is very thick.  He keeps the hair on his head short, which leaves his large vulpine ears free to move and hear easily.  His fur retains less thickness on his paws and face, which helps his movement and lets his long muzzle stick out from his face rather noticeably.

Build: Moderately muscled, though as part of his height tending towards thin.

Clothing: When he feels like it or when it somehow benefits him, he'll wear a shirt that's some shade of grey.  The rest of the time he just goes without a shirt due to his thick coat of fur.  What's really iconic about his clothing, though, are a pair of faded blue cargo shorts, into which he stuffs just about anything and everything (except food).  Two major mysteries surround these shorts.  The first is whether he owns more than one pair.  The other is how much fits in the pockets.  It turns out that although the size of the item put in the pocket is limited by the pocket's mouth, the pocket itself opens into Jaye's personal 'hammerspace', a traveling pocket dimension created for infinite storage.  As this pocket dimension is closely bound to the fox, he holds control over what comes out and if anything comes out.

Accessories/Markings: Jaye has multiple tails, being a kitsune - at this point in time he's a five-tail, and each of his tails holds a number of luminescent silver rings (corresponding to tail number).  Small, barely-visible birthmarks (in a sense) above the outermost claw of each forepaw and hindpaw, occasionally causing difficulties in keeping the entire paw held rigid and straight.  He also wears a necklace from which hangs a miniature impression of feral fox paws.

Perks:
- Humility: This silver fox is...not quite submissive, but he strongly tries to avoid any form of haughtiness and generally makes it his goal to stay in the background.  He wants credit where credit it due, yes - but he wants it more for others than for himself.
- Perseverance: " 'Cause if you try, you can do anything!"  Possibly Jaye's favorite song lyric.  He believes that with the will to accomplish something that something can be accomplished.  He also believes - rightly so - that he has that will.  His determination becomes his duty, and his duty he holds sacred.  See also 'stubbornness' and 'ethical'.
- Ethical: Jaye believes in honor, duty, morality, and related concepts, pledging himself on a deep level to follow them always.  Some conditions lead to difficult choices, which torment the vulpine, but some of the following are constants.  He makes decisions quickly and decisively, following through on them in almost all cases.  Honesty, preservation of life, and peace are his highest laws.

Flaws:
- Pride: Jaye's 'fatal flaw', as it's been called.  Most of his other flaws are closely related to this.  The kitsune abhors the idea of being wrong or someone else doing better than he does from equal standing.  For this reason, he has a potency to reject and ignore people or ideas out of hand.  (Note that pride as in haughtiness is not his problem.  See 'humble' section above.)
- Stubbornness: When good persistence goes bad.  Jaye often gets so set in what he thinks that he wouldn't even bear the thought that someone else might have a better idea, so he just keeps pushing on with what he's doing.  Although he's making an effort to get better about this, it still creeps up on him sometimes.
- Introversion (shyness): This could be argued as not so much a flaw.  Regardless, the shy tendencies tend to manifest themselves as nervousness around others, especially when said others aren't as soft-spoken as Jaye.
- Coldness/Rigidity: Related to all of the three flaws above, this is when he holds himself as better, or maybe 'more proper' than others and refuses contact with them, or at the least has grudging contact.  He may have valid reasons at times, but another major part of this flaw is a reversal of his characteristic optimism when it comes to other people.  Either he can be totally trusting or totally mistrusting; he doesn't have much in-between.


Social Status:

Relationship Status: Single, intends to remain so. 

Family -
Father: U.S. Air Force General Malcom Granger. - Jaye retains tenuous contact with his father (it's kind of hard to do across worlds).  There's always been a barrier between them because General Granger believes so highly in decorum and retained a buffer between himself and his potentially wild children.
Mother: Unknown kitsune. - Jaye is certain his mother loved him and cared for him...but since he isn't sure of her identity and his father doesn't know much about her kitsune identity, for now he's just chasing shadows.
Sister (Twin): Jayne Granger. - Jaye's favorite vixen in the Universe, for whom he has the closest place in his heart.  The twins are inextricably linked, both by birth and by strong love and trust as siblings.
Sister (Younger): Katelyn Granger.
Paternal Grandfather: Keylow Moscovich (Deceased).
Paternal Great-Grandfather: Lucius Moscovich (Deceased).
Unknown # of generations back: Kurama, ancestral mother of all kitsune.
[In the Out of Character, word has it that Jaye is a direct descendant of Kurama.  Credit for this particular idea is not mine, but Cyril's.]

Other relations are currently unknown.  Both Mobian and Terran blood runs in the family.


Friendships -
Ashley: Jaye seems to run into this wolf with fair frequency, and she's also helped him out a bit, staying around to talk and keeping him company at times.
Cyril: 'Friendship' is a stretch.  The silver fox barely knows the aloof black kitsune who has agreed to be his mentor since it's become apparent that the former is also a kitsune.
Boubka: The cyan-furred kitsune seems to have readily accepted Jaye as a close friend, especially after being there when it was discovered that the latter was another of the same species.
Several more, presently unlisted.


Rivalries -
Currently none.  Jaye isn't all that vocal and doesn't get that many rivals.

Enemies -
Currently none.  Jaye isn't all that vocal and doesn't get that many enemies.

Team Relations -
In formation.  Currently the 'team' is largely Jaye and his twin sister, Jayne.

Skills and Professions:

Weapon(s) of choice: Short-sword (x2), Weaponized fire and light, and Explosives.

Armor: When using armor, it's almost always hard-light.  See 'Elemental Abilities' section.

Physical Abilities -
Sprint: The silver fox can move faster than an average Mobian, though it takes a corresponding amount of energy to travel an equal distance.
Determination: He'll usually try to push himself just a little bit more or work a little bit harder to reach his goals.
Martial Arts Training: Jaye held a 1st degree Black Belt in Taekwondo prior to his strange arrival on Mobius.  At the present he's working on changing the techniques a bit so they work better for a Mobian form while still holding their value as techniques.

Mental Abilities -
Logical Mind/Focus: Jaye tends to go straight to the heart of a problem.  He also usually handles a situation swiftly, step-by-step, and without concern for the surroundings (except when the surroundings are dangerous).  By virtue of this he can make a fine leader sometimes.  However, this doesn't always benefit him: it can make him seem cool and distant since he skips sentimentality in the face of a problem, and he tends to naively believe that others think the way he does.
Determination: He'll usually try to push himself just a little bit more or work a little bit harder to reach his goals.
Intuitive Curiosity: Being extremely curious, Jaye tends to poke his muzzle into anything he doesn't understand.  This can, of course, backfire.  But when he genuinely observes something he doesn't understand without interruption, he'll start forming theories about it - and generally he'll be right.

Elemental Abilities -

Reflection/Refraction: The ability to control, shape, and manipulate light, useful for anything from illusion/invisibility to elaborate light displays.
Electroscopic Vision: A highly detailed and streamlined view which Jaye can utilize to detect and use light outside the normally visible spectrum.  This can also be used to search for impurities or defects of objects all the way down to an atomic scale.  (The latter is accomplished by artificial magnification using refraction as well as bio-magnification involving adjustment to Jaye's eyes.  Involving so many parts, though, the atomic magnification will quickly tire him and lead to a harsh headache.)
Purification/Healing: An application of power that is semi-light, semi-divine, which exists foremost as a sped-up, possibly even miraculous healing.  It can be applied to almost any injury so long as the soul has not left the body.  However, the more grievous the injury, the more effort the healing requires.  Presumably trying to raise the dead would kill Jaye in the process.  It is currently unknown how the power affects scars, other disfigurements, and mental or other internal damage.  Secondarily this ability can cleanse 'corruption', defined as biological/biological-related taints or impurities.  Even the definition is situational as he cannot, for instance, remove 'evil' from someone.
Hardlight Creation: The congealing of photons to create a rigid glowing substance which at default is plastic-like in texture but which can easily be modified to imitate other textures.  This substance, called 'hardlight', is electrically conductive, solid down to a quantum level, and makes for extremely potent shielding.  The main and huge drawback is that hardlight objects require natural light, an electrical current, or Jaye's focus to remain in existence.  Without one or more of these, they dissipate.

Class: Cleric/Engineer (the latter, possibly with technomancer/mechanigician tendencies).  That is to say, often in the business of building, healing, and repair.

Other: TBD.

Strengths: TBD.

Weaknesses: TBD.

Sanity: Usually Sane.  However, occasionally Jaye rather randomly starts talking philosophically and existentially, and no-one else is actually sure how much he knows about what he calls other 'Universes', or stories.  He may have some vision through the fourth wall, insofar as he knows about other stories.

Personality Overview:

With Family: It depends on the family.  With his father, Jaye maintains a rigid, submissive attitude for the sake of decorum.  With his siblings, Jaye is a caring and sometimes overprotective brother.  Other family members are currently unknown.

With Friends: Jaye will generally be friendly to anyone who isn't immediately hostile.  'Friendly', however, does not necessarily mean 'open'.  He'll occasionally spill his deepest thoughts to anyone, though he's much more likely to be open with friends.  Most of the time he retains a self-restricting demeanor, while trying to be charitable and kind to friends.  This is intentionally done in order to demonstrate a moral and ethical example without overtly telling his friends about his high standards that he actually doubts that they'll ever meet.

With Rivals: With rivals Jaye tends to be curt and laconic; although he recognizes that as circumstances dictate he may have to spend time around them, he prefers to minimize contact in order to minimize the duration of hostilities.  Very much unlike his normal sensibility, as he would say, pride usually blinds him to the fact that working with rivals might actually reduce rivalry.  (See Flaws for more on pride.)

With Enemies: Jaye takes the moral high ground with enemies and offers a type of respect until fired upon.  He will usually not 'fire the first shot' until he knows that the enemy he faces is so aggressively hostile that he cannot convince him/her/it not to fight.

With Team Members: Always wants to keep on going towards the objective, pressing team members to work towards the team's goals.

In Environment:

Firey: Generally, this fox is going to be happy around fire as long as he doesn't singe his fur or suffer worse harm.  After all, fire gives off heat, and, more importantly, light.  It's also good for setting off explosives.

Wet: He doesn't like getting wet.  Getting wet means soaked fur, which is especially bad with his thick coat.  Also, water tends to do strange things to light, not to mention liquids other than water which usually aren't transparent and are hardly translucent.  (Getting other people wet?  That's a different matter.  Out of kindness, he usually doesn't, but he is a kitsune, and kitsune are known for pranks...)

Dry: Jaye tends to be fairly ambivalent when it comes to dry terrain.  The only major difference that it makes to him is that light travels more easily and with less obstacle in the absence of liquid.

Mountainous: Mountainous terrain generally means two things to Jaye: hiking and snow.  He likes both, so in general this is a positive.

Boat: No prior experience besides rare canoeing.  In general, since this is related to deep water, he isn't happy with the situation as per the 'Wet' terrain explanation above.

Vehicle: It varies depending on the vehicle.  More information will be supplied as it becomes available.

Cityscapes: Jaye is right at home in a city, since living in the city [cue Sonic R music] keeps him in fairly constant contact with other people and lets him blend in with a crowd (to some extent) when he wants to be inconspicuous.  However, within a city he wants and expects a personal space that he can retreat to when contact with other people overwhelms him.

Crowds: Whenever he's trying to hide, which happens semi-often, Jaye wants to get into a crowd for maximum effect.  The rest of the time, he's somewhat uncomfortable in very large groups, which scales up the larger the crowd.

Themes:

Theme Song(s): Quartz Quadrant Zone BGM - Sonic CD, JAP/EUR Ver. (in general, but see also attitude songs).

Clothing Theme: Hardware Store - Weird Al Yankovich.  He carries everything he physically can on his person and tends to accumulate stuff.

Attitude: Testify to Love - Avalon (when in the state of mind of helping others), Missing Person - Michael W. Smith (when sad/depressed).

History/Backstory:

"...3...2...1...action."

"My name is Jaye Granger, and this is my story...so far, anyway."

Other relations are currently unknown.  Both Mobian and Terran blood runs in the family.



Friendships -

Srunks: This young hedgehog is Jayne's adopted little brother.  They get along well together and she generally helps look out for him and supports his mission to find cures for diseases.

Rivalries -


None known.



Enemies -


Gerald Green, wealthy human oil tycoon.  He has a long-standing vendetta against the Guardians.



Cyril wer Kaldra, the nine-tailed kitsune who is Jayne's former mentor.  She apparently left his mentoring after some type of argument or fight.  No-one else knows the details; neither is about to tell.

Team Relations -


Jayne is a member of the Guardians, an organization about which more might be written but about which little is known.

Weaknesses: The vixen, however, is also a glass cannon.  In an intense situation, her powers will drain her at a rapid rate, and one solid blow that actually connects is enough to completely unbalance her focus.

Sanity: Usually stable.  The main times to doubt this are the times when she is placed in a situation that calls on her kitsune instincts.
