Jason usually keeps to himself. In his eyes the less people he has connections with, the less chance his past will catch up to him and hurt those he now cares about. He's usually calm and quiet, but he can no longer turn a blind eye towards injustice. While crime is rife throughout Korven, Jason holds the particularly deplorable in high contempt. If you hurt the purely innocent or someone he cares about, then the curtain peels back and his old, violent nature begins to seep through once more until his job is done. By fighting for competition and no longer for his own gains, Jason seeks his own redemption from his past.

Hobbies and Interests: As his occupation suggests, his main hobby/job is pro fighting... well... as Pro as you can get in Korven. He enjoys all aspects of it, including training and preparing for fights. While he's skilled in most areas of MMA's, his true skill lies in strikes such as punches, elbows, knees and kicks.
Small Biography: Jason grew up in the lowest slums of Korven, his mother earning income as the local whore while his father was busying himself with drinking and scrapping with anyone who looked at him the wrong way. Looking at it this way, fighting was kind of in Jason's blood. This pretty much gave him free reign to do practically anything when he was growing up. Following his father's footsteps, Jason would see his fair share of fights throughout his teen years. At 15, he stole some tapes from a window and managed to find a player. They were clips of old fights... Like Scrap fighting but a little bit more tame. Jason would watch the tapes religiously, practising some of the motions as he did.
Through this, it helped further his fighting skills and he started to become a lot better at it. A year later, he stole from the wrong people and they noticed. Two gang members decided to teach him a lesson. He tried to put up a good fight but it was clear these guys were in another league compared to Jason. However, they saw the potential and decided to give him a shot. With no one to tell him no and the promise of power, how could he resist? Jason joined the Pure at 16 and slowly worked his way up to becoming one of the top Enforcers. The Pure gave him a new route to channel his skills to hone them into a lethal level.
No one in the gang knew for sure, but after seeing and committing many atrocities in the Pure's name, Jason left. To this day, his acts still keep him up, and his past always seems to catch up. With a brand on his upper back representing the mysterious Gang, Jason can run as much as he wants to but no one ever really leaves. In an attempt to battle his demons, Jason uses his skills for competition and, in certain cases, defending those who cannot.
Family Members: None, either dead or no longer on speaking terms.
Relationships: Enoch. His ex-leader and commander for the better part of 7 years. While he's managed to stay clear from the Pure for about 6 months, he's not sure if he's out of their sights just yet and if Enoch ever forgave him.
