Deceptively tough, focused and brave, Jason West takes what he’s good at and strives to be great at it. With more than a little guidance from his Gecko totem, Jason aims to be a world class manipulation sorcerer and a technological expert; or, as Jason sees it, a trickster who can get into any place he’s not supposed to go.

Like a Gecko, his “investigations” into forbidden locales tend to get himself and his companions into a spot of trouble. His physical and mental edges, coupled with his chosen specialties, cause some nagging flaws. Flamboyant and impulsive, Jason jumps straight into the heart of any matter and is often easily remembered (for better or for worse) afterwards. Even if his work went unseen, his strong astral impressions make it clear he’s to blame (or thank, though that’s seldom the case).

His style, nature and choice of words often annoy his companions, and he seldom does little to correct his behavior accordingly. Regardless of the bickering or childish abuse of his magic (holding his comrades upside down with a Levitate spell, for example), he does care for the well-being of his comrades and attempts to show it in subtle ways (subtle only because his shows of good faith are typically accompanied with more bickering or abuse of magic).

He co-founded an initiatory magic group with his comrade, Aioda, (and most frequent victim of his childish side) which he refers to as the Shamanic Order of the Burning Gecko. He has yet to ask if Aioda appreciates the name.

After the defeat of Jose Padria in his underground lair, Jason took his share of the group’s sizable reward and left his long-time home and joined Arthur Tonius in his journey to New York City. He still meets with Aioda once a month, even if for no other reason than to maintain their magical link.
