Appearance[ | ]

Joern's avatar is very tall and muscular. He has dark brown hair cut short, with green highlights along his oddly square-shaped hairline. He has green eyes and a small mole on his cheek. He has a lower half helmet with the rectangular cheek protrusions typically seen on Quadroguards. He wears a set of metal armor patterned with blue squares over a black bodysuit.

Personality[ | ]

Joern has had little interaction shown by which to judge his personality, but he is shown to quickly and bluntly defuse the growing conflict between Apollo and Lea, suggesting a straightforward and reasonable outlook.

He is laid back, gentle, and likes to take a relaxed and stress-free approach to playing CrossWorlds. When in a party with Lea, he doesn't approve of her enthusiasm for combat, and doesn't enjoy intensive, extended S-Rank combat streaks, mentioning that games are supposed to be relaxing.

Relationships[ | ]

Joern and Apollo are friends. It is implied that they are also living together (It is briefly mentioned that the duo owns several cats outside of CrossWorlds). Joern is shown to be unamused by Apollo's antics and refuses to humor him, instead apologizing to Lea on his behalf, suggesting that Joern is quite willing to do what is best for Apollo, whether he likes it or not.

It is later revealed that Apollo and Joern are a couple, seen as they share a kiss after the final PvP-battle with Lea.

Joern tends to refer to Apollo affectionately as "Polly".
