Class/Level: Paladin 5
Experience/Needed: 30,000/36,000

Description: Jorus is an impressive height, over six and a half feet tall, with a prizefighter's build and broad shoulders. Vaguely Mediterranean or Latin in appearance, his dark hair is cut short and he keeps himself clean-shaven, often looking rather sarcastic or generally grouchy. His eyes are deep brown. Adventuring has given him numerous minor scars, and a childhood accident left him with a vertical one along his chin. He favors wearing heavy plate most of the time, an eccentricity made possible by his nearly monstrous strength. His armor is plain, high-quality steel with little ornamentation, worn with a green tabard cut in the fashion of a sleeveless priest's coat over the metal, covering his torso and extending to his waist in front, and beyond it in two tails in back, this vestment marked by the symbol of Torm on his chest. A sturdy bandoleer across his chest connects to a belt around his waist. His sword hangs from the back of the bandoleer, while various other pieces of equipment and weaponry are kept on his belt. The most notable of these include his holy symbol, a stout morningstar, and a powerful heavy crossbow. Also on his back, or safely kept with his temperamental steed, is a red-dyed sembian guitar, a treasured instrument for the stirring of the faithful. His helm is a domed greathelm with a slightly beaked front, usually rather dented. His shield, a mighty kite-shaped bastion of steel and wood, extends from shoulder to toe, emblazoned with the holy gauntlet of Torm with the bellows, his family crest, in its center. His sword is a blessed weapon, a well-forged bastard sword with a narrow, thick, sturdy blade that comes to a sharp point, seemingly made of unusually pale and reflective steel, almost white. The crossguard is shaped into a pair of wide-spread wings, the handle spiral-wrapped in rayskin for a good grip, and the pommel a heavy disc of metal. His Bonded Mount is Barotys, a large and temperamental one-horned rhinoceros, nearly as heavily armored as the Paladin himself in his plate barding. Sir Jorus has virtually no inside voice, his force of personality manifesting mostly as intense stubbornness and intimidating bellows, though he will give dramatic speeches at the drop of the proverbial hat. Borderline fanatic for Torm.
