DraconyteGender / Sexuality:
Jian has lived and learned that nothing is out of bounds when it comes to survival. Although she can exercise a great deal of mercy on others' behalf, she is nowhere near the self-sacrificial type. Instead, Jian is always on her own side. Her liberty and freedom will never be put at risk in order to free others. However, she does have a great deal of empathy and is willing to use all of her available resources in order to assist others in freeing themselves. Her policy is that everyone deserves a chance to be helped, but that such a chance must not be taken lightly.
She is addicted to gaining power in the sense that she always sees room for self-improvement. Aside from efforts to increase said power, Jian loves to go flying for long periods of time and visit valleys and marvel at life. She has a deep appreciation for what she is given. Though she may not bow down and get on her knees every day to praise the gods for what she has received, she understands that others have made sacrifices on her behalf. Jian is a bit of a narcissist, and believes that those sacrifices were justly made so that she could profit. Therefore, she rightly thanks those who helped her and will reward anyone like that if possible.
In day to day conversation, Jian can be a bit prickly when someone gets to know her. At that point, she is more willing to share her truths and give her genuine opinions on things. Up until that point in a relationship, Jian tends to say whatever she thinks will best persuade someone to like her more. That doesn't necessarily include compromising her own beliefs, since Jian has a bit of pride when it comes to anything except for her life. But she acknowledges that often, it's best to keep certain things hidden until a later date, as people can be touchy and make strong judgements.History:
Born in another universe with its own set of rules, Jian was originally a human from the Sikan continent. Her land was co-ruled over by a group of hybrid-like people who displayed animal characteristics and had the ability to shapeshift into various full animal forms. Jian was young when an accident occurred, leading to her near-death. In order to save the young girl, her father used all of the family's wealth and resources to bring her to a shapeshifter who agreed to transform her to save her life at the cost of her humanity. Now a shifter, Jian received abuse from both sides for abandoning her former people as well as for not being a true born-shifter. There was also efforts to propose that she be killed, as the ritual used was forbidden. Normally, humans and shifters were not permitted to take on another race. Despite all of the opposition, Jian used the hundreds of years she now had a shifter with a long lifespan to slowly gain approval and sway as a person. Eventually, she became a trusted citizen of Sika and well-liked by most. Years of hard work had paid off and she was then able to benefit. Unfortunately, during an otherwise normal day she somehow found herself in a brand new world.
After becoming trapped in Vyldermire with no apparent way of returning to her home continent, Jian slowly became accustomed to living there. She found that a great deal of prejudice existed both against Eldritch and Anthro individuals- and unfortunately, she was often mistaken for a Demonata or a Vampire. This has, over time, seeded resentment within her. After being the highest of the high in her former world, having to endure second-class citizen treatment (or even that of a non-citizen) is almost too much to bear. However, Jian does not value her pride more than her life. She has learned to deal with the inferior treatment and is determined to rise up in this new world. There is no need, in her eyes, to prove herself to those who think her unworthy. So long as she knows her own value and potential, anything is possible.Likes:

Freezing cold, Blood, ElectricityGoal/Aspiration:
Although she is more unhappy here than in her former world, Jian has come to the conclusion that nothing exists more to gain in her old dimension. Her new goal is to accumulate strength and resources in Vyldermire in order to rise to the top in power. Despite her deep desire for faculty and sway, she has no intentions of reigning sovereign as a tyrant. She merely wants to hold immense power so that she may retain her independence no matter what.Key Fear/Adversary:
Jian has a great deal of trepidation when it comes to immortal or long-lifespan individuals, as they will always remember her in the state she is when she meets them, and unless forgotten, they will retain that initial impression of her. She is afraid of having no power or being unable to control the situation surrounding her or her own self.
