This is my application for FallOfHyrule, a Zelda RP that I may or may not have been stalking for, oh, three months or so now. Also, I have to give a HUGE shoutout to Guardian-Samurai for helping me with this application so that I could get started. You are the (wo)man.

Girl Power (Lvl. 1) : Increases defense of Gerudo when fighting alongside of a female.

Dual Scimitars (Lvl. 3): The owner of this skill can learn how to and is gifted with two scimitars.
+ Charming + : Jerial has an inherent charm to him that magnetically attracts the attention and interest of those around him. Over the years, he has honed his this skill so as to obtain whatever he likes. The manner in which he dresses and his dancing technique both reflect the time spent crafting and mastering the art of impressing and enchanting others. However, he is not maliciously manipulative, and would not seek to harm another to get what he desire.
+ Intuitive + : Jerial is often the first person to pick up on what others do not notice or recognize. Upon entering a room, he will immediately scan it to evaluate on the atmosphere, gauge the people within it, etc. He is a quick learner, and often finds the heart of a problem while the others remain on the surface level.
= Flirtatious = : Because he is aware of his unique sense of charm, Jerial often resorts to being flirtatious - mainly when it comes to men. He is quite aware of the effect he has on them - especially when they mistake him for a woman - and will use that to his advantage. In all honestly, however, he only interacts this way with men because he does not know how to hold an actual conversation with them. (Note: he generally will only flirt with humanoid races - Human, Hylian, Zora, Goron, Rito, Keaton, etc. Monstrous or races such as Koroks, Skull Kids and Deku Scrubs will not be flirted with.)
- Impulsive - : Although he has a genuinely good heart, Jerial tends to act more with his heart than with his head. This is mainly due to an inherently strong sense of justice placed within him. Whether his morals are lined up with the rest of the world’s, however, is yet to be seen. Oftentimes, others must restrain him from acting too quickly.
- Androphobic - : Despite his flirtatious nature, Jerial is actually scared of men. Because he was raised in a tribe of women, some of whom were misandristic, he has absolutely no idea how to communicate with other men. In all honesty, he truly desires to have a close male friend, but his fear keeps him from ever truly establishing any sort of real relationship.
Jerial’s birth was a complete and utter mystery to his tribespeople. They had been patiently awaiting the birth of their future king, but this new baby was most certainly not their king for their current king still lived and reigned in Hyrule. In their vexation, they sought to sacrifice the child to the Goddess of the Sands, but the tribe’s oracle stopped them. The boy was not their king, but the Goddess makes no mistakes - the boy was born for a purpose. Trusting the oracle, they decided to embrace the child and raise it despite the oddity of their current circumstances.
The women, however, were quite clueless on how to correctly raise a male child. Therefore, they taught him only what they knew and prayed to the Goddess that he’d be able to figure out the rest on his own. Jerial quickly picked up on the native dances of the tribe and spent endless hours under the burning sun practicing his routines. Seeing how the women fought so gracefully with their dual scimitars and spears, he attempted to learn to fight as well. However, his frail body at such a young age was unable to handle the rigorous physical activity needed to fight. And so, he found a loophole. Instead of fighting, he learned to treat each fight as a dance. Daggers in hand, Jai designed dances suited to battle instead of performances. His tribe was in awe, and allowed him to both participate in skirmishes against enemy tribes and the strategy meetings needed to win said skirmishes.
Shortly after his nineteenth birthday, news of Ganondorf’s ascension to power had reached his tribespeople. While his people were filled with either triumph or terror, Jerial was obsessed with the idea of another male Gerudo. For years, he had believed himself to be the only one, but now, his people extolled this stranger as their king. Determined to discover the mysteries of this man, his tribe, and his own birth, he set out in the hopes of finding the truth.
Personal Goal: To understand the meaning of his birth through communication with Ganondorf, the only other known male Gerudo in existence
Occasionally mistaken as a girl, especially when hair is untied from its rattail. Also occasionally disguises himself as a girl on purpose. When mistaken for or disguised as a girl, he goes by the alias "Jezrielle".
Dislikes when people touch his hair. He views letting his hair loose from the rattail as an extremely intimate act.
Has a bad habit of getting himself lost, despite calling himself a wanderer.

Also, I think my Gerudo's probably gonna take the two dances Jerial does NOT have, since I can see her as more of an animal tamer/nature manipulator of sorts.
That'd definitely work, and she'd be a lot different from any of ours, if that's the case. Well, Vanda has Lump, but not really the same.
