He has sworn an oath to protect his home at all costs. Jon is always looking out for the group and would be willing to give his life for his brothers in arms. While he is fiercely loyal to his comrades, he is not affraid to drink them under the table. Jon, however, is troubled by his past.
Background Information: As a pup, Jon's mother told him stories of his late father, an old, great, warrior and adventurer and of his many advetures. Jon was told of how his father, under the full moon, had taken on four legions and won singlehandedly. This, however, was not true. On Jon's eighth birthday, a broken man walked into town. His fur was grey with age, there were patches on his hide where the hair had fallen out, he had but one eye, his breath smelled of alcohol, and he carried a knife in one hand. This lunari lumbered his way through town towards Jon's residence. Upon his arrival, the drunkard yelled Jon's mother's name. She answered him by name and asked him why he had followed her. He answered her with one word, "Revenge." At that moment, he stabbed her in the torso with a look of contentment in his eye. Jon, who had been watching from the corner of the room looked on with shock and awe. The man looked at the boy, then back to the woman on the floor, then back to the boy. He readied his knife and began to approach the boy. He told the young lunari, "I'm sorry you had to meet me this way," then pulled back the knife to stab him. A deafining noise filled the room. A pot next to Jon exploded with a crash and Jon was instantly covered with red liquid. The assailant stopped for a moment, his eye wide open, and then slumped to the ground, dead. Jon looked down to see that this man had a neat hole through his head. Jon's mother had shot the man in the back of the head. He ran to his mother on the floor and was met with a grizzly sight. She had been stabbed in the stomach and was bleeding profusely. The next day, Jon's mother, on her deathbed, told Jon the true story of his father. He was a ruthless man who beat his wife often. While pregnant with Jon, she ran off in the night to make a new life for herself. Little did she know, the man she left behind spent the next eight years and seven months searching for his wife and child so that he could enact his vengence for her abandonment. At that moment, Jon's world came crashing down on him. The stories that he had grown up with had been a lie and his valiant hero of a father was an evil man. With tears in her eyes, she apologized to Jon and died right there in the clinic. Confused and upset, Jon set out to fight everything that his father represented. He decided to train in the art of firearms, so that he could enact justice on those who would do the world wrong. He wishes misfortune on no one, but realizes that if is will better the world, he must show no mercy. By protecting all that is good, he hopes that others will follow suit.
