J is for...
Jareth. Prince Jareth. Or, in this case, Oliver Coleman. But he looks like Jareth to me.
In The Peasant Queen, Jareth is Krystal's love interest--but I didn't want to wait until my L post to post love interest, you know? Good thing I didn't name him Zerin or something, right?
Krystal's nearly halfway through her adventure before she meets Jareth under unusual circumstances, but she's immediately drawn to him. He's got appeal--tall, handsome, blonde, blue-eyed, and MAGIC. But that doesn't make him perfect. Which is okay. I mean, who wants Mr Perfect? Ugh.
Jareth hasn't had it easy. With Gregory for an uncle--an uncle who hates him, mind you--challenging is rather a minor word for it. What if your guardian wanted you dead?
In addition to wielding magic, Jareth has his own unique set of skills. For one, a wicked sword arm, though he is a bit rusty when Krystal first meets him. Good thing he's got a camp of rebels to help him warm up. After all, Prince Jareth has a kingdom to save.
