A Tian.

Cheerful, kind, and friendly, Jamie will often go out of their way for strangers to a certain point, and far beyond that point for their loved ones. They go cold as ice when you push their boundaries, though.

Comes in Angel, Gaemir, Jaim, Jasmine, and Jem subtemplates.


Fairly selfish except for with the people they care about, Jamies are friendly enough to offset this, and default to being helpful, so long as it's not too much of an imposition. Will go to seriously self-harming lengths for the ones they love, however.
Jamies have a hunger for adventure and interesting things. Jamies believe strongly in self-determination, and their greatest fear is being forced into a role they hate. They can take this for a time, but will eventually either run or break. They fear being powerless, to help themselves and their loved ones.
Seemingly paradoxically, Jamies are fine with devoting themselves to obeying or assisting someone else so long as they do it of their own free will.
Jamies are non-binary but usually use the pronouns associated with their sex. Jamies are attracted to strength and power - strength of mind, strength of will, strength of body - and whatever their sexuality otherwise, if a person can eff them up in combat they're attractive.

Cluster
Angel: Usually twin or triplet Jamie, by blood or not, may still be the eldest but doesn't act like it. Devoted to their partner(s). Not in charge.
Gaemir: Lone Jamie, with no responsibilities they don't choose of their own free will. (Theoretically).
Jaim: Responsible Jamie, often eldest sibling. In Charge, usually more or less willingly. Devoted to their people. May have taken their causes as their own.
Jasmine: Trapped Jamie, probably expected to marry and bear children. Usually an only child.
Jem: A Jamie who is forced to be the responsible one. Frequently believes they are not good enough, especially in comparison to their loved ones

Mode - The above clusters may be modified by one or more modes.
Soulless: Lacks even the basic empathy of most Jamies - more possessive, more careless about the freedom and safety of those he does not care about. Still pleasant, can be helpful. It's not obvious on first glance, usually.
Pressed: AKA Revolutionary. This Jamie has been pushed to an edge and taken up a cause. Angrier than most Jamies ever get.
Altruist: Unusually altruistic, usually has taken and internalized the morals of someone else.
Masked: Screwed over in some way or another, masks way more than most Jamies. They are despairing but need to hide it.
