Jango is a sullen character and miserable. His experiences communicating with the dead and spirits always leave him feeling melancholic and depressed. Given his powers he enjoys the night and finds solace in the shadows. It has often been commented that Jango prefers talking to the dead than the living, this stems from a belief that the dead can’t really hurt you. He knows that this belief is only partially true, spirits rarely attack people for money or possessions but they can be controlled and manipulated.
Jango is used to working alone but has had some experience working with small cells of people from the guild, his abilities make him useful at recon and diversions. He can also make any number of potions and poisons which make him useful as a healer when the use of magic isn’t an option. Jango always feels that he has to shake off the stigma of his fathers’ association with dark mages and the underworld during their time on the road.
His father is a subject that he will never discuss and hates to be asked about his past, for him his life started when he was taken in by the Guild. He is incredibly loyal to his guild and his comrades despite his naturally sullen and shy nature. He is hoping that one day he will be seen as a friend rather than a ‘freak’ that can talk to the dead.
Jango never knew his mother but he thought that he had a happy life. His father was a conman and they moved from region to region peddling their wares of potions. He learned at an early age how to make potions to cure a large amount of common ailments and also potions to give the semblance of a cure. His father went around and promised cures to the incurable, his father believed that there was a lot of money to be made from human suffering. They never stayed in one place for too long, once people realised that some of their potions were bogus they weren’t often too welcome. So Jango never had any friends but his father and the dolls that his father made him make to sell and use in his voodoo act. Jango’s father used magic as another way of making money, their family had always been magically attuned and had complied a large amount of information on the use of voodoo and shamanic techniques for talking to the dead.
When Jango turned 8 years old he began to show signs of being a mage and his father thought his luck was in. His father trained him relentlessly in the arts of voodoo and shamanism. He forced dark spells and potions into him to increase his powers and bought books of dark magic with more information on voodoo. His father was determined to teach Jango their families’ greatest spell ‘Shadow Possession’. It was written that Jango’s great grandfather had perfected the spell so that he could manipulate and control another through their shadow. His Great Grandfather had also perfected other magic’s involving the manipulation of shadows, such as the shadow cloak, shadow binding and shadow rite. So mixed with clairvoyant talents, potions and dark magic Jango was forced into calling spirits back and using their information for his father’s own gain. Then things turned against Jango and his father, when they were caught by a dark guild. For his life Jango’s father traded his abilities and he was forced to work for the dark guild, his father left him.
Those were the worst 6 months of Jango’s life. He was used as a tool and was treated terribly, when he got the first chance he fled into the wilds of Fiore. He survived using his knowledge of plants to eat and his life on the road to survive in the wilds. He was found by a mage from Lamica Scale. Seeing his innate magical abilities he took him to the guild for a place to stay; it was not uncommon for guilds to take in magical children that had been abandoned or had run away from some horror or another. From that point he started a new life with the guild and he has been fighting for them ever since. His greatest success came when, using his voodoo knowledge, he was able to bind a demon spirit that had murdered several people and was gathering a following of followers to overtake a small kingdom. For this he was elevated the status of A-Class within Lamica Scale.
Potion/Poison making: Using magical and plants he can make several different mixtures to cure or kill a person.
Voodoo dolls: Using three spirits and a binding he has been able to create three dolls that he can use to do mundane tasks for him. The dolls he keeps on his belt and are around a foot tall. Although having to real attacking powers he can use them to deliver poisons on needles or as assistants with a summoning.
Call Spirits: His innate talent is the ability to talk to and summon spirits to aide him. He can call on local spirits to defend him, attack his enemies or give him some information. The main problem with using this talent is that he has to build a rapport with the spirits or bind them to his will. A binding takes a large amount of mana and limits what he and the spirits can do.
Shadow cloak: At night or in dimly lit surrounding he can rap himself in shadows. This makes him incredibly difficult to spot, almost invisible to the naked eye. With effort he can hide another or a human sized object, although he is unable to move while hiding another.
Shadow Binding: A difficult binding to perform but almost impossible to break. The binding literally ties the person into their shadow. They still have use of their sense and can still talk but will find it impossible to move. Against a non-magical human this binding is impossible for them to break out of, a fact that was exploited by his father and the dark guild that captured him. Jango can only use the binding on one person and must be able to actually see their shadow, he can hold a binding for roughly 120 seconds.
Shadow rite: Using the power of his shadow and his mana he can manipulate inanimate objects, lifting, threw or moving them at his will. He can lift up to a maximum of 50lbs of things either as one object or as several, with this ability is not limited to volume only the overall weight of the objects.
Shadow Possession: (Uncompleted) Jango is unable to use this spell but is working towards its completion. The basics is that he can take complete control over a person using his own shadow. That person is then forced into doing the binders bidding and is only removed from outside factors or the bidders will.
He can perform the role of medic if needed but it takes him time to make potions.
