Physical Description

Ersus is rather menacing physically, hailing from the more primal ice plains of his homeland. While many of his kin appear as oversized teddy bears, Ersus is more muscular and thinner than them all - appearing more like a werewolf (or werebear!) than the others. 11'5โ€œ, he often has to go onto all fours when shipside to fit through the corridors. Ersus' fur is a dark grey, his eyes an incredibly light brown.


Ersus is a genuine hearted person despite all appearances, seeming altruistic and kind to those who get past his form. Ersus is driven by the warm feeling you get when helping or protecting people above material gain or other more common, selfish reasons. Ersus' goal is to show the bigots and xenophobes of the universe that it's better for all to work together than get caught up in stereotypes. Ersus is always open to helping others with their work, even if they don't explicitly ask. Ersus enjoys playing games to the point it's almost a problem. Testing himself and others mentally and physically delights him in a strange sort of way. Sometimes he forgets how fragile everything around him seems to be and can accidentally break things on occassion - often following up with a flurry of apologies. Ersus' background in the deep wilderness of his home planet makes his animal side come to the surface when provoked or enraged, which often ends.. badly. Overall, he is a kind hearted bear with a nasty temper.


Jambavan Ersus was born in YE 20 on the plains of Gashmere. Growing up rather primal compared to some of the catacomb born Kodians, he had to fight off a good amount of aggressors across his childhood, responsible for the bloodrage-esque anger that can creep over him. After civil war erupted and his brethren died squabbling amongst themselves, Ersus decided he couldn't bear to watch them tear themselves apart and instead left for the Star Army.

Being as he was physically, many of the others in his training initially avoided or even feared the hulking Ersus, dwarfing even the Patricians much to their concern. After a while and the various group exercises, the others quickly began regarding him with a new light, Ersus' immense physical strength assisting in many aspects. Eventually, the grey bearlike soldier became a sort of mascot to their unit and was often turned to for help up to when he graduated and was sent to the Kaiyo, leaving as Santo Hei.

After diligent and classified work on the Kaiyo, Jambavan was chosen to be elevated along with several others who were removed from the ship at the same time. Following his next posts, Ersus rose the ranks as he again and again found himself dealing with scenarios that shouldn't have occurred.

Eventually, the Special Investigation Branch plucked Ersus from the ranks and put him through specialised training. After passing, Jamba was sworn before a military judge and the Assistant Marshal, formally elevated to Special Investigator status.

Jambavan was reassigned to the YSS Wyvern as part of special duty, but is often back on Kyoto when necessary.

Skills Learned

Optional section. Jambavan Ersus has the following notable skills:

  • Diplomacy: Not only more naturally skilled in diplomacy than most because of the way his species is brought up, conflict resolution is a large part of work as an MP.
