Jin

Recommended Posts

Name: Jin

 

Gender: Male

 

Race: Changeling

 

Age: Early fifties

 

World: Eberron

 

Appearance: On a normal day, Jin has pale eyes, brown hair, and a very distinctive face (the better to pick him out of a crowd without resorting to theatrics, odd hair or extra limbs - in particular, his nose looks large enough to sue for independence). He has only recently deigned to look his age.

 

Occupation: Teacher, gang leader, and surrogate father to a gaggle of changeling children. May or may not have ties to underground pro-changeling political movements. Or organized crime (They're really the same thing, aren't they?).

 

Lethe credits Jin with teaching her how to be a proper changeling. Jin, in turn, is openly disdainful of Lethe's upbringing, education, chosen profession, very loud red hair, and (quote) "little princess" attitude. They are not on the best of terms.

 

Playlist:

 

1. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds -

2. Nine Inch Nails -

3. Blink 182 - Stockholm Syndrome

4. Nightwish - I Want My Tears Back

Not sure if this is a JIn or Lethe song or both. But...yeah.

This is the first (thing I remember)

Now it's the last (thing left on my mind)

Afraid of the dark (do you hear me whisper)

An empty heart (replaced with paranoia)

Where do we go (life's temporary)

After we're gone (like new years resolutions)

Why is this hard (do you recognize me)

I know I'm wrong (but I can't help believin')

I'm so lost

I'm barely here

I wish I could explain myself

But words escape me

It's too late

To save me

 

You're too late

You're too late

You're cold with disappointment

While I'm drowning in the next room

The last contagious victim of this plague between us

I'm sick with apprehension

I'm crippled from exhaustion

And I dread the moment when you finally come to kill me

That is a SCARY accurate Jin song. :rofl::D

 

On that note, Imma just gonna leave the lyrics to NIN's Head Down here. It's already on his playlist, but I just listened to it again, and...damn. :P

 

 

 

You!

What you looking at?

Head down!

Too late for that

What you want

What you get

Know your place

Don't ever forget

 

And this is not my face

And this is not my life

And there is not a single thing here

I can recognize

And this is all a dream

And none of you are real

And I'd give anything

I'd give anything

 

Hey you!

What you running from?

All your hate

What you've become

Bet you didn't think

It would happen to you

All used up

Halfway through

 

And this is not my face

And this is not my life

And there is not a single thing here

I can recognize

And this is all a dream

And none of you are real

And I'd give anything

I'd give anything

I'm gonna have to write the vignette that's been bugging me about Jin's backstory. He's...kind of one of my favorite characters now. I mean, I loathe him. But now he's really making me feel sorry for him. (And then he just went all "mwahaha, exactly as planned!" in my head and I smacked him. Bastard).

 

And I found a song clip that isn't even OUT yet, it's only thirty second long, and yet it's insisting that I put it on his playlist. Ooooookay.

I was talking with a friend about A Song of Ice and Fire, and I realized that I've apparently subconsciously based Jin off one of my favorite characters. Unfortunately, said character is this guy.

 

Whoops. :frightened:

1. I cast Vincent Cassel as Jin precisely because of his role in Black Swan. Seriously, watch the movie. It's a wonderful movie, and I swear to God that's Jin up on screen. Every second. It is the creepiest damn thing. :frightened:

 

2. Muse's Undisclosed Desires is my perfect Lethe/Temvi song.

 

Ergo,

 

3. WHY, GOD, WHY?!

Ohhhhhhhhh yeah. (He's been chatting with me about...things. I'm taking backstory notes).

 

...That movie's where I got Lethe's nickname of 'Princess' from, too. Yay! Fun times! :frightened:

I love Black Swan. For two reasons. >.> Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman.

Morrigain is watching Dangerous Liaisons. Morrigain promptly attempted to claw out her brain through her left nostril, as her brain informed her that Jin is taking careful notes from John Malkovich's character.

 

...

 

No no no no no no no shut up, Jin, you were never half that suave, NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

 

...Especially since Solana's grandmother is taking equally careful notes from Glenn Close's character.

 

AIGH *Puts characters in pens on the opposite ends of her brain* :frightened:

I lost my heart

Under the bridge

To that little girl

So much to me

And now I'm old

And now I holler

She'll never know

Just what I found

 

That blue-eyed girl

She said "no more"

That blue-eyed girl

Became blue-eyed whore

Down by the water

I took her hand

Just like my daughter

Won't see her again

 

Oh help me Jesus

Come through this storm

I had to lose her

To do her harm

I heard her holler

I heard her moan

My lovely daughter

I took her home

 

Little fish, big fish. Swimming in the water.

Come back here, man. Gimme my daughter...

*head is duly messed with*

 

He's complaining that we're misrepresenting him and not giving him fair treatment and trying to prod me towards more sympathetic-type songs.

 

I set him on fire.

Weep for yourself, my man, you'll never be what is in your heart

Weep little lion man, you're not as brave as you were at the start

Rate yourself and rake yourself, take all the courage you have left

And waste it on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head

 

But it was not your fault, but mine

And it was your heart on the line

I really fucked it up this time

Didn't I, my dear?

 

Didn't I, my dear?

 

Tremble for yourself, my man, you know that you have seen this all before

Tremble little lion man, you'll never settle any of your scores

Your grace is wasted in your face, your boldness stands alone among the wreck

Now learn from your mother or I'll spend your days biting your own neck

 

But it was not your fault but mine

And it was your heart on the line

I really fucked it up this time

Didn't I, my dear?

 

 

 

And a song from the point of view of a character who...mmm, but I've already said too much. :D

 

(I went to college with these guys. They're awesome)

...All that we did you undo

Iscariot, you fool

 

That's what you want,

But it's not what you're asking for

I said that's what you're asking,

But you're gonna get more than you bargained for

I said that's what you had,

But you don't have it anymore

 

You had it coming

 

You know you had it coming, my friend, my friend,

You know you had it coming, my brother...

I need some songs for Rilan. I only have one, I can think of. And I'll post that on his thread.

Watching Game of Thrones and being uncomfortably reminded by how much Jin is based on Viserys Targaryen. :blink:
