° P-ersonality ||
Cheerful - Juan is a reasonably cheerful man, considering how he was raised and what his current profession is. He is always one to tease or crack a joke here and there. Always at slightly grim moments he’ll pop in with a grin and say something to brighten the mood a bit. Known to be let down when one of his jokes or teasing tone doesn’t brighten the mood a little bit, he tends to get grumpy when they don’t work. Juan keep a cheerful outlook on most grim situations, thus sometimes annoying crew mates most of the time.
Chivalrous - Juan would never treat a lady wrong, he is always polite, courteous, and though he might not always be truthful about his true identity around them he is very kind. Always opening doors, pulling out chairs, always going by the ladies first method. Though his outer appearance makes him seem more gruff than he actually is, Juan is a true believer in Chivalry.
Non-Violent - When I say, ‘non-violent’, I don’t mean he doesn’t fight at all, what I mean is he tries his best not to get into fights, him being usually very cheerful he makes really good attempts to try and get along with mostly everyone. He will fight if he needs to, but often he’ll just relax on the sidelines, most likely smoking a cigar. When he does end up fighting he tends to be slightly rough, but only because he is a bigger guy.
Laidback - Juan is very relaxed, slow-moving, calm, type of individual. He doesn’t often raise his voice or get too worked up about anything. If you are in a panic, Juan most likely isn’t as worried as you, he’ll probably tell you to stop being so negative and calm down. Any matter he’ll deal with in his own time, he’ll take his time, but eventually get it done.
Somewhat generous - Juan isn’t the most generous guy seeing as he never really got a lot as a kid, never really got much either. If you need something and he has the money he’ll buy it for you. If family or a friend needs something, he is willing to go out of his way and buy that something for them, he doesn’t generally spend money to much, but if he has enough to buy something you need or want he will try and manage to get it for you.
Holds a grudge - Now, Juan isn’t one to forgive and forget so easily, if you wrong him or have betrayed one of his family or close friends, he won’t just shrug it off. He’ll be aggressive towards anyone who wrongs him or previously wronged him. He comes off as very stand-offish around people that he has a grudge against.
Makes amends - When I say makes amends, I mean to mistakes Juan has made himself, he is very quick to apologize when realizing that he has made a very big mistake. He’ll offer to treat you or just give you a gift flat-out. His gifts usually involve some sort of sweets, but that makes up for everything right?

° H-istory ||
Juan grew up in a nomadic family. Never staying in one place too long, whenever they would move Juan would become slightly distressed never really getting to make many friends. His family wasn’t a bundle full of hugs and kisses either, the only person he really got along with was his mother and his younger sister. His brother was never one to be nearly as cheerful in the families situation, so, Juan paid no mind to him. Only to his dear little sister who he could tell not to worry when a situation looked grim. He inherited this cheerful outlook from his mother, who would always tell them not to worry and that everything would be okay.
There was only one town that the family stayed in long enough for Juan to make a friend. It was as small town, but it was decent and Juan enjoyed his stay. There was a very large forest and he enjoyed just going out and romping around in them. One day he came across another boy running around in the woods, being curious and wanting to make a friend he approached the boy. Finding out his name was Sadiq, Juan and him became friends fast. They would meet each other often in the woods and play with each other. They would roughhouse often ending in Sadiq getting hurt or vice-versa. But, since Juan knew first-aid somewhat he always managed to patch up Sadiq or himself whenever they ended up getting hurt.
All good things must come to an end correct? Juan ended up having to move from the town to a different town. Juan wanted to tell his new friend, but it turned out Sadiq was out of town, traveling. Slightly upset, he didn’t want to lose a friend he had just made, was slightly impartial to leaving and argued with his father, but his father wouldn’t budge, they ended up moving from that town and Juan felt he would never see his friend again.
When he finally was old enough to leave the nest, as it were, he left leaving no trace of him back to his family at all, his family lost connections with him and Juan lost connections with his family. Juan was jobless most of the time in his twenties with him getting jobs and losing them because he was a ‘slow-worker.’ and too ‘lenient’ with employees and customers. But then there was that day where he stumbled upon his old childhood friend, Sadiq. Juan was more than slightly overjoyed and cheerful at this meeting.
Sadiq informed Juan about what had happened over the years and Juan explained what had happened to him over the years as well. Juan wasn’t that surprised when he found out what Sadiq had decided to pursue, piracy. When Sadiq offered Juan the job of Doctor aboard his ship, Juan was hesitant, but Sadiq assured him that Juan knew what he was doing when it came to first-aid and being a doctor. So, Juan accepted, but ended up purchasing some medical books. He has been aboard Sadiq’s ship ever since.

Juan woke up that morning with a loud yawn. Rubbing his eyes the large Cuban man looked at his clock. It was 10 AM, nothing unusual- Then he remembered, it was Adelina’s birthday. If he missed visiting her and giving a gift he’d be in hot-water. But, he didn’t think this was any time to panic of course.. Adelina was very understanding, right? No, no she wasn’t, she would get really mad, if her big brother wasn’t there one time and with a gift. The large man slid out of bed lighting a cigar as he did so and went to get cleaned up and ready.
Juan slid on shorts and a nice flower print button-up and went on his way to get a gift for Adelina. Now what did she like? She was very picky and fussy when it came to gifts. He was trying hard to remember what she liked as he walked out of his house and down the street. She like flashy things, very flashy and shiny things. Maybe he would get her a necklace/earring set- Or an anklet, she wore those a lot right? He honestly had no clue, he didn’t know how much money he had either. But if he didn’t buy her a gift and came with nothing, he’d feel bad and Adelina would make him feel worse.
He ended up deciding on a necklace and a bracelet. But he didn’t know what style to get her. Juan was stuck in the jewelry store staring at the cabinet, he was getting slightly irritated because he didn’t have his cigar, because the owner didn’t allow smoking. But whatever, he would have to decide quick, he was running out of time before he had to be there. He wouldn’t panic, no, he would decide soon though.
Proceeding to ask the jeweler what the cheapest thing would be when he was buying a bracelet and a necklace, the jeweler looked somewhat appalled that we was buying the cheapest thing for a gift pointed to a necklace and a bracelet both with a single stone on them, Juan dug through his pocket and placed some money on the counter.
“I’ll take it..” Juan mumbled, looking slightly embarrassed as he had accidentally set a cigar on the counter as well. Shoving the cigar back in his pocket, he took the gifts that the jeweler had put in two velvet boxes and went on his way. Hoping that even if he was late and had bought Adelina the cheapest thing (only thing he could afford, at that!) he could, that she would be grateful and he wouldn’t have to face her wrath. At least not today.
