Jerold was raised in a relatively wealthy family by his parents. Jerold started exhibiting signs of abnormal curiosity in his childhood. As a child he began to toy with locks and how to pick them as a game. He never meant any harm by it and didn't think it would lead to negative circumstances. One night, Jerold tried picking the lock of the next door neighbor as a challenge because he got bored with his family's locks. He was caught and was sent to jail. Although his family could bail him out, they didn't because they wanted to teach him a lesson. The judge was harsh on Jerold and gave him 6 mo imprisonment. When he was released, his family gave him a modest amount of money then sent him on his way, short of disowning him.
Jerold is a happy go lucky hobbit that has the "adventure fever ". He stands 3' 9" and weighs 55 lbs. His cheerful hazel eyes are framed by neck length curly light brown hair. His sense of humor overrides his wisdom at times leading to… misunderstandings.
Jerold seeks to roam the countryside looking for odd jobs and quests to make his way in the world. He has no long term plans… Jerold tends to live in the moment.
A Sentimental Value
Jerold still feels a closeness to his mother. He realizes he shamed his family by an attempted break in for his neighbor, but he believes his mother sent him off for his own good. He loves his father as well but wasn't as close to him as he was his mother.
I met Hoodlum as a teenager. I looked up to Hoodlum as a folk hero of sorts. I admired his sneaking and lock picking skills. I would often sneak out at night and talk with him. He is very knowledgeable about the thriving arts… although we sometimes disagree on morals and ethics.
