APPEARANCE
Joris is a young, plain-looking man of Illuskan heritage, with fair skin, short black hair, steel-gray eyes, and a pronounced nose. He always dresses in blue with white accents, the colors of his faith.

BACKGROUND
Joris is a cleric of Mystra, the son of Silverymoon’s renowned mystic theurge, Prestin Crownsilver. Joris was never smart enough to pursue arcane magic along with the divine; with four other children who did, Prestin considered Joris a disappointment.

Joris befriended the ranger Jerris, and recognized deep feelings for his new friend’s lover, the wizard Lenora. He vowed not to act on those feelings, for fear of jeopardizing his friendship with Jerris.

En route to Waterdeep, the three of them heard about some missing villagers, last seen near a wizard’s abandoned home. They agreed to investigate, but ran afoul of an owlbear; Joris was the only survivor.

He and Sheen explored the wizard Morard’s home, where a magical diagram teleported them to Avernus, the first of the Nine Hells. Joining with the ranger Talan, they escaped to Sigil.

Joris has recently moved to a shrine in The Lady’s Ward known as the Circle, which he shares with Numeledes and Firil Starwing.

Raven, the mysterious woman he met at the Jester’s Masque, has been revealed to be Kalisa, a succubus whom he has consented to aid in achieving redemption. She is pregnant with Joris’s daughter.

PERSONALITY
Joris was not well prepared to take up the adventuring life, but is coming to believe that he’s made the right decision. He’s happy to leave Faerûn behind, since he can step out from his family’s shadow, and the most important thing he found there – his love for his goddess – is always with him.

Joris is fascinated by magic, and studies all new discoveries; still, he doesn’t understand how Sheen’s powers work, and has never encountered a warlock before meeting Maloranserani. He draws strength from his companions, but hates being a burden to them. Instead of mediating between Sheen and Haden, he’s now trying to give them the tools to communicate with each other. He likes and respects Talan a great deal, but wishes the ranger would open up a little. Mal’s behavior puzzles Joris, but he’s working on it. He’s grateful that Kalenthor’s presence gives him someone with whom to discuss arcane matters, though he doesn’t share the wizard’s apparent disregard for personal safety.

Joris believes that Kalisa can be redeemed, but he’s not sure that he’s the man for the job. Now that he’s finally allowed himself to love her, she’s announced that she’s having his baby, which has forced him to reexamine their relationship.

Joris can sleep virtually anywhere, and snores loudly.
