Jeslyn was born into a poor family. She was "raised" by her drug addicted mother who spent most of her time hanging with the drug users and drug dealers. Her youngest childhood years weren't so bad as laws and strict enforcement ensured that her mother was at least getting her dressed in the morning to get on the bus and head to school. However, as she moved into her teens, the city she lived in went downhill as fast as her mother's drug addiction did. She no longer had anyone enforcing her to go to school and as a result, she simply stopped going even before high school. Instead she lived in a fantasy world, where everything was perfect and she was the princess that everyone took care of. She did keep up on her education, mostly using a tablet she had found and hid from her mother, alongside her neighbors wi-fi. Internet chat rooms became her place of enjoyment, where she could be whatever she wanted to be. It was these alternate realities that allowed her to not fall into a deep depression and, on the contrary, she actually always looked at the brighter things in life. She had a roof over her head, and escape from all the stress and drama in her life and, wasn't in one of the many orphanages that was constantly on the news regarding child abuse. As she made it through her teens she took on several jobs, though her commitment issues always meant they were minimum wage as she never held onto a job long enough to start a career. Her education was also an issue, preventing her from more of the generic teen jobs such as banking, bookstores, etc.. and despite having a hard time financially, she lived a pretty normal, uneventful life. That was until one day, at the age of 19, her mom brought her drug addiction home with her and, an altercation with one of her mom's drug-addicted boyfriends led her to leaving her home with what savings she had put together. The closest, inexpensive town nearby was Hathian... a city with a reputation but, in her mind anything was better than what she was leaving behind. She just wanted to start a life of her own.
- Character backstory is left vague on purpose as Jeslyn is a normal girl with a very common background. However, her character will be strongly shaped and possibly twisted by her choice to move to Hathian.
- Please respect that this is a long term character -- no murdering Jes unless approval is given
