Name: Jerry E. Gythor
Rating: 4.1 stars
Special Powers: Athletic prowess, Ability to be in character at a renaissance festival
All around athlete, medieval enthusiast, and evil ex-boyfriend.
It's not uncommon for athletes to train in tights or have their own sports equipment. But this time there's a renaissance fair tunic to go with those tights. And that varsity jacket has been referred to as his golden armor. And a morning star and jousting lance stick out from the basic pigskin.
When somebody who has trained well in various sports, certain kinds of attack become more dangerous. Unlike other LARPers, when somebody with a pitching arm chucks baseballs at you calling them "thunder bolts" or "sleep spells", you'd get it so bad you'd think that's what kind of magic just clocked you.
Nobody knows why Jerry E. Gythor started dating Ramona Flowers, or for that matter why there was a breakup. Let's just say that for how recent it was, it already feels like it was in the dark ages.
And should a knave like Scott happen to beat Jerry, he'd be rewarded with about 20 dollars in coins, and whatever the name is for the Scott Pilgrim universe's version of the "Konami Code".
.......but then again, that's assuming Jerry doesn't win; and he's already predicting what flavor of sports drink to have for his victory goblet.
Since this character is a mish-mash of a jock and a medieval loving geek, It would only be fitting that he'd have a name that's a mish-mash of Jim Thorpe, the all-around athlete and 1912 gold medalist; and Ernest Gary Gygax, the creator of Dungeons and Dragons. Anyway, enjoy!
