My Bio
Jinji is a rather mischievous Gengar who loves to have a good laugh, whether it's with or at the expense of other people. A chaotic individual, his personality and actions are random and usually unpredictable, and both friends and enemies are regularly made victims to his numerous tricks, which occasionally may verge on malicious. However, Jinji is not a mean Spirit - rather, he's incredibly friendly and open-hearted; and loves to help people with problems they have or just make them feel better about themselves. He's also very sociable and all around likeable personality. He also would never harm a human - though he often possesses humans in order to be able to better interact with other humans much more easily; and he has once hypnotised someone who annoyed him to send them to sleep - these are painless actions, however, and he only does what is necessary. To Jinji, it's most important that everyone is having fun; and even if he seems to be being slightly mean, it's just because he knows that's what people want to keep the game entertaining.

This same caring commitment and passion for fun extends to Pokémon as well - Jinji will befriend any Pokémon as long as they mean no threat to any human or Pokémon; though it is not usually clear who he genuinely considers a "friend", as he is the kind to keep enemies just as close to him - and when he feels like playing a prank, EVERYONE is fair game. Jinji knows when the game is over, however; and has the ability to turn deathly serious when the need requires. He is a master of illusion and can make even the soundest minds lose their sanity for as long as it takes, and his various Ghostly attacks, not least of which the Shadow Balls he always enjoys throwing, can often be intensely strong. Jinji is never one to turn down a direct challenge; and if you ever battle him, be aware you may not leave in the same state you entered.

This is a very simplified version of my character biography and I may submit more detailed backstories in the future, but it should give you the gist of what I'm like. I like to be in character most of the time, so don't expect serious conversation from me, but I prefer to be a casual role-player so I may be a bit more "real" sometimes. I'd also like to be consulted first if you want to involve myself, my character or parts of it in your own works.

My views on Art Trades, Requests etc.

The Jinji the Gengar universe is a headcanon I've designed based on concepts I myself have developed. As a result, I mainly focus on self-composed stories, poetry and character descriptions, though I am also beginning to get into drawing as well.


Occasionally however, I receive Notes asking for requests, trades and so on. The following lists my views on each of these:

Requests closed by aqua spirit22 d8bl6ue

As I mainly prefer to work on my own initative and find it pressurising to work to a brief or under deadlines, I typically do not take requests. I may sometimes make exceptions for strong ideas where I am able to create a concept easily, but do not expect this.

Similar to requests, it is my belief that Art Trades put too much pressure on both parties to work to a similar standard and be timely, and it can sometimes make one or both parties unconfident in their abilities in comparision to their partner. Additionally, there have been occasions where I have agreed to art trades where the other party has failed to uphold their end of the bargain. For that reason, I am NOT open to Art Trades. Exceptions will only be made for close friends where there is a clear understanding of what is expected from each party.

Collabs Ask by aqua spirit22 d8my24p

I *love* it when people ask me to write stories in order to turn into artwork, or writing stories based on artwork people have already made. If you want to collab with me, just let me know your ideas and I'll get back to you on if it's something I might be interested in :)

Money commissions Ask by aqua spirit22 d8my5kd

If you're a fan of my stories, consider becoming my Patreon at https://patreon.com/jinji and chipping in some money each month so I can earn a living. Some stories are published early to my Patrons before they get public release; and I may even allow long-time Patrons to make requests if I'm in the mood ^^

While I appreciate all my followers and am very happy when I hit certain milestones, I don't believe in entitlement. If you're gonna follow me with the expectation that I'm gonna make something for you just because you made me "hit a milestone", I'm probably just gonna block you straight away.

One more thing: I write in my spare time and when I feel like I have something solid to write about. This means my submissions can be erratic and spontaneous, and typically don't follow any release schedule. If you don't like waiting to read new things, don't follow me. Thanks!

Over at the Jinji the Gengar website, one of the main things I've been working on is writing profiles for each of the characters that have so far been introduced within my various stories. While some of these profiles have previously appeared here on DeviantArt, I've lately been taking to expanding them to try to give my characters a bit more of a richness and flesh out their actual personalities, etc. To that end, I'm happy to announce that if you visit my website from today, you will find that each of the other currently named Ghosts within Jinji's mansion - Phantisserie, Alessandro and Gaspar - now feature two new sections on their profile, one of which links to each of their first appearances so you can read the story they debuted in. The other new section is a bit of detail about the characters themselves - for Phantisserie and Gaspar, that section is "Beliefs and Superstitions"; and is designed to give an insight into their mindsets by explaining just what they make of such

Sometimes I feel like life just wants to continually put me into situations that cause me hardship or grief...
