Joern Jotunson

by Nat

Joern Jotunson is the son of a kind Norwegian dog and his partner, both of which escaped capture together and chose to start a new life with their chance at freedom. Having later lost his parents to cruel hands, Joern found himself landing in the very same fate his parents escaped from, a slave to be used for his useful skills and nothing more. Being rescued by Casa di Cavalieri just before his life could be forever taken from him, Joern now wishes only to return the favour to the pack as well as maybe finally live a life his parents would've wanted him to have.

  • Loves to create things and talk about his ideas for fantastical structures.
  • Really enjoys Human relics, both finding them and being told about them.

1.  Appearance

  • Joern is a dog all over. His stocky and slightly small build, packed muscles and short fur all speak of his heritage, much of which coming from his father. The patterns across his fur more resemble his mother, the light brindle tones and dark brown saddle of a shepherd mix, with pointed ears to match well to the bundle of breeds Joern has inherited. His eyes are a deep forest green and his nose patched between pink and grey. His right ear has a piercing of a large brass loop, a gift from his mother along with the brown bear tooth necklace she’d passed down to him.

When shifted, Joern remained on the short side, but wide and bulky, heavily set shoulders making him look more intimidating than he no doubt acts. His hair remains almost non-existence on his head, with only a very short buzz of hair coming through in his Optime form.

Optime: 5 ft 6 in (168 cm) ↔ 260 lbs (118 kg)
  • Scars:
    • Joern has a brand marked into his left ear, that appears as five straight lines.
  • Tattoos & Piercings:
    • Joern has a piercing in his right ear, filled with a large brass loop.

Clothing & Accessories

  • Humanization: High
  • Clothing & Accessories: Joern, like his dad, likes to keep his outfit to a minimum, typically settling on just a simple pair of shorts and a wide belt with multiple pouches to hold his tools and equipment.


  • Speech: Loud with an interesting mixed accent of Spanish and Norwegian, commonly using 'amigo' or 'friend' in his speech.
  • Scent: Wood, metal, clay, dirt
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Likes small shoulder touches, seems keen to always be doing something with his hands.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Relaxed and open, smiling a lot.

2.  History

Joern Jotunson is the son of Jotun Jotunson, born just after Jotun escaped from his previous capturers. At the time of Joern being an infant, Jotun and the boy’s mother weren’t yet comfortable with the idea of slowing down, wishing to get far from those who had wronged them first. When they did finally stop, Joern was just shy of a year old, more than ready to settle down with his parents and help his dad build them a house. Joern always knew of his father’s love of creating, especially buildings, so the young man soaked in as much as he could from his dad as they worked.

They had the house complete before the end of summer, Jotun itching to continue adding more and more to the house, whilst Joern took things slower and spent time learning from his mother instead. Her interests rested in pottery, passing knowledge of the craft onto her son, making Joern wonder if he could somehow combine the two crafts of his parents somehow. He wouldn’t get the opportunity however, as before the start of winter, the house was attacked. Raiders came to steal, not only possession but also lives, Joern being caught before he could even react. His parents tried to save him, but Joern never saw their attempt, only the rising flames remaining of their family home. It was the last time he ever saw his parents. From then, Joern was switched between hands, sold off as a useful slave from ‘exotic’ origins.

3.  Personality

  • Outlook: Optimistic
  • Sociability: Extrovert
  • Expression: Dominant
  • Alignment: Neutral Good


  • Joern never acts like he’s down on his luck. Each day seems to be the best for the young builder, adventure found in the seemingly simple tasks of chopping wood or working clay, with a desire to brighten the days of others should he get the opportunity to. Although his peculiar accent, a mix of Spanish and Norwegian, can muddle his words from time to time, Joern remains pretty open to everyone. Happy to speak on his own experiences, as well as listen to others talk about theirs, he seems to value any kind of information as important pieces of history.

On a social level, Joern remains a bit childish and gullible, willing to take to heart a lot of things he is told, which often results in him coming across as being foolish. However, in matters involving his craft, Joern inherits the creative genius and curiosity of his father. A desire to continue to learn the masterful ways of building and craftsmanship, adapting both the use of wood, stone and clay in what he makes, it is clear Joern is no simpleton.

  • Likes: Talking, crafting, buildings, history
  • Dislikes: Capture, destruction, fire

4.  Skills

  • Carpentry (Journeyman)
Inspried and trained by his dad, who had carried his knowledge and skill across countries, Joern seems a natural at working with wood. Knowing all kinds of methods of connecting wood together to form secure structures, crafting pieces of furniture and combining both to design and build houses. Joern brings not only skill to his craft but also a genuine love of what he can make.
  • Masonry (Journeyman)
Where his father taught him to use wood, Joern's mother taught him about the use of brick and stone, a relationship between both that helps Joern in his designs. Whilst the manipulation of wet clay to make pots is something Joern wishes to learn more about, he is confident in his knowledge of what stone is best to work with and how to create bricks and use them.
