Jasmine Porter is a character in the Errant Road free-form on-line role-playing game, played by Sareth. Like all Errant Road player characters, she doesn't exist in the Poe-verse. Her basic concept can be found in this thread on the Forum.
Name: Jasmine Porter
Occupation: Shopkeeper, obsessive grandmother-to-be
Equipment: None noted.
Appearance: Light brown hair (with some silver) Blue eyes, 5'6". Has aged VERY well. Yes, Jamie's mom has got it going on. So much so she won the attention of an elf for a day even at her age.
Jasmine was the sister of a young, up and coming member of the Gewehr. Through him she met, was wooed by (some say she was the one that did the wooing) and married Alexandre Porter, another member of the Gewehr. Shortly after, Alexandre was sent to expand Gewehr operations into Volkanenborg. Alexandre started up some operations (smuggling, hits, protection rackets, things like that) while Jasmine started a little shop in town. A couple years later they had Jamie.
After Alexandre was killed in a freak accident, Jasmine continued to run the shop, becoming successful enough to be one of the social butterflies of the town. She never remarried, content to raise Jamie, over whom she obsessed. She tried very hard to make Jamie a society belle, hoping the girl would marry into a good family that would take care of her. Unfortunately, to her distress, Jamie is uninterested, having an almost masculine interest in mayhem, having a good time, and sex. Since finally getting a clue as to Jamie's whereabouts she has been obsessively chasing the girl to attempt to get her to settle down and start having babies, dammit!
Jasmine comports herself as a lady, but has a whim of steel. She can badger almost anyone into doing what she wants. The only real exception is her daughter, who is just as stubborn as she is. Her desire to see Jamie wed and pregnant comes from a desire for Jamie to be pampered and taken care of like a princess, something Jamie doesn't care much about.
Jasmine can swear like a sailor when she wants to. Jamie's language was NOT learned from her classmates...
- Jamie: Mother to. Determined to see Jamie married, pregnant, and behaving herself, to the extent that she's chasing her all over the place to drag her home by the ear.
- Marcus: May have ambitions to see him make her daughter "an honest woman."
- Nera: Surrogate grandmother (and, in some respects, mother) to. When Jasmine finally caught up to Jamie, she was lugging little Nera around in a baby carrier after offing the poor kid's parents. It would be reasonable to say that this caused Jasmine a little confusion, at first, as to who was who, and particularly, who was whose. Once things were clarified, Jasmine stepped in for some mothering -- of whom is probably best left as an exercise for the reader.
- Selvay: (ELF) Selvay got pistol whipped by Jamie for asking her gender. His motives were not only not pure, but in fact specifically because he wanted to know if she had a lock for his key, ifyouknowwhatImean. He then ran off with Jasmine for precisely that same purpose, but with no uncertainty about whether she possessed a lock or not.
