Jasper knew his job since he was a little boy growing up in Kansas. His father showed him the jewels and taught him what he needed to know in order to protect them. Jasper was taught how to use whatever was around him to stop any assailants and, at the same time, how to come across as normal. One of the most important things he was taught was what to teach the gem's true owners. Jasper's father was very careful in explaining to him that the true owners may not show up for many lifetimes. But Jasper enjoyed the lessons on how to teach and so he went to college to become a teacher.
While at college, he found he enjoyed mythology and resolved to be a teacher of that subject. Also while at college, he met a girl who became his girlfriend of two years. At some point, she found out she was pregnant with his child. She left him and fled to another state. Jasper had sense and skill enough to find out what happened to his baby. He learned his son is happily living with a foster family in New Jersey. One day, Jasper knew he'd find the boy and teach him what he knew so the family legacy may live on.
When his father passed away months before Jasper graduated, he told Jasper to watch the gems for clues of what to do next. Jasper stared at them for hours, days, weeks on end, but never got an idea. He completed schooling and acquired a job at a nondescript university in Colorado. Jasper has been teaching there for over ten years and never got over the fact that it was lucky they had an opening for such an odd subject matter.
