About Janus Grey
"We make endings."
Janus is from “unstuck” Uringen, a town that is sometimes not there. Unstuck Uringen shifts in time, and is closer to the First World. Its residents are descended from the town's Ulfen founder, and still speak Skald. Like other residents of Uringen, Janus wears distinctive black and white clothing.
The proximity of Uringen to the First World leads to numerous strange occurences, and there is a notable Fey presence in the city. Janus experienced this closeness in periodic contact with Imbrex, the Twins, Eldest of Endings, Twins, and Statues. This contact drove Janus from a young age. Whilst not a twin themself, Janus identifies as two distinct entities: an ulfen human, and a dwarf river caiman crocodile. Janus either cannot or does not distinguish.
Janus' divine drive has led them to believe that civilisation encroaches upon “the Green”. They trained first with the Oakstewards of Sevenarches. To learn how to defend nature in accordance with the wishes of the Fey and the Eldest (specifically, Imbrex's wishes as communicated to Janus through the Fey and experiences in Unstuck Uringen) Janus travelled to Daggermark, a renowned proving ground for students of the art of death. Janus has the Fey's outlook on death – every ending is a beginning, and Imbrex is the maker of endings. They excelled in Daggermark, learning the Three Precepts of Life, Death, and the Vessel Between. They trained with the Vessels, but never intended to remain in Daggermark. They left, to learn more and perfect the way of ending in order to better protect the Green.
They travelled to Tian Xia in order to seek out masters of weaponry that they could learn more from, but fell in with the Pathfinder Society whilst there. The promise of advanced schooling in both magic and weapon use persuaded Janus to take on more work from the Pathfinders...
Janus is not a front-liner, they are a stealthy shock trooper. That said, at low levels especially they're going to be on the front line often enough.
Janus will attempt to get into a flank in order to full attack with their dire flail (two-weapon fighting). The familiar attempts to gain a flank, and use Aid Another on the human's attack bonus, especially if they don't have Divine Favour running.
If Janus cannot full attack from flank, they are happy to make a single attack two-handing the flail.
Try to use Studied Target if there is time.
Janus will cast Expeditious Retreat on the familiar to maximise mobility in combat (unless the familiar has an opportunity to get into a flank already). They will try to save a casting for Divine Favour for a boss fight.
