Always wearing make up, and when protection of the Masquerade permits in an outfit befitting his cult. Unlike many other Kindred, Jai's hair routinely changes shades and lengths. He insists that just because it only lasts for a night doesn't mean it's not worthwhile to make yourself look good. (Though he has on occasion resorted to wigs when he finds himself pressed for time.)
Routinely seen dressed in his old tunic a thought gatherings, he has been known to dress as a catholic priest before as well, though if he actually knows anything about the faith is debatable at best as he seemed to be using the outfit more in jest than in earnest. He has also been seen dressed in more stylish and modern clothes on rare occasions; however, such appearances are few and far between.
Easily distracted by personal goals. He doesn't like people that take things too seriously. He has been heard to say, "The goal of power is to get just enough that people leave you alone." And that seems to be his focus within the Independent Alliance.
Despite these stated goals, he has found himself the Doyen of Los Angeles and has worked to leverage his position to acquire and secure even more power. The oldest routinely active member of his line he often refers to his peers within the line as 'dear cousins'; however, it is easy to see he views himself as above them rather than a peer.

"I'd say I'm sorry, but you deserve the truth." - A time when he was not very sorry
"Everyone is familiar with the allegory of the cave, I like it as well; very useful for describing my faith. Think of all the people, they were imprisioned in a world of light. They were told this was the truth of the world and they should enjoy their lives out in the light. But one day someone found a dark cave. They wandered in and their eyes, so used to the light could not see anything. They stumbled, fell, scraped their hands, broke their knees, struck their head. Lost and confused they wandered deeper into the cave in search of truth, and in time their eyes adjusted, they could see the cave, the truth and secrets hidden inside. They now could no longer return to the light, the lies out there burned their eyes. Rather, they could now finally see the truth in the darkness." - A brief sermon he shared

"Have you ever met someone that makes every element of your very being scream out that what you're looking at isn't human? Yeah. That's Jai. Apparently in a sexy way. I don't know, if you're turned on by complete affronts to humanity, then you can go with that, but I'm fairly certain that's all you're going to get from him." - Cassius Wilde
"He's isn't a monster, he's a villain. It's other people he converts into monsters. I can only feel bad for that poor girl that hangs off his arm." -Elika Rezaee
"Everyone seems scared when they first meet him. Maybe he ought to start every introduction with 'Do not be afraid...'. No, but really, truth is jarring and scary to most people, and he's that thought personified. Oh, don't mind the little joke, I'm sure I'll get in trouble for it later~" -Anastasia Giovanni
"Where I am rational, he is impulsive. Where I am cautious, he is bold. Where I am reserved, he is outgoing. A worthy counter part in the Alliance. It is good to have him as my fellow Doyen." -Saul Rothstein
There is a rift between him and his lineage and he could be turned against them
Like others in his cult he is too obsessed with self indulgence, he is more of a drain than anything else
He only aiding in making the Independent Alliance because he wanted an easier time preaching to the Giovanni
He doesn't actually have skin, it's just very tiny scales. Touch him, you'll see.
He is the Setite your sire warned you about.
Has a pet hedgehog named Tarantula.
One ate a snake on a dare.
He once spent five years slowly destroying a Toreador Elder who insulted his eyeliner.
He was once so stoned at a party in the 70s that he spent most of the event trying to stamp out reflections from the lighting. No, not the 1970s. Guess a different century.
He has a standing offer of a Blood Boon if you can bring him definitive proof that Orcs are real.
Fucking loves Genesis.
Is the inspiration for "If Uou Give A Mouse A Cookie.."
