~Move action: Jess uses tactical trick or ambush trick to get combat advantage.
~Standard action: Basic Melee Attack, charge if squares are open, or throw a dagger. This gets sneak attack damage. The attack bonus and damage bonus are detailed below.
~Minor action: This can be used to drink a potion, draw a fresh dagger if one has been thrown, or use the thief encounter power “sudden leap” to jump 3 squares.

Details: If Jess throws a dagger he always draws a new one with a minor action. If Jess can’t get combat advantage he uses second wind instead of attacking. If he has less than 20 hp he drinks a potion. (He can only survive 2 hits at max HP.) At the beginning of the combat, Jess’s goal is to get behind an enemy so the other players can gain CA against it.

Jessamine is a finely made halfling child. He has large, innocent eyes and a headful of tangled golden curls. He rarely speaks unless spoken to. His clothes are finely made and he has a natural air of silent nobility. He is fastidiously cleanly and has good manners for a young boy.

When shit hits the fan, Jessamine’s persona drops. He is a quick, foul-mouthed combatant who ruthlessly targets the most vulnerable areas of an enemy with no remorse or hesitation.
