Jason is Rose's boyfriend and the captain of his steam-powered airship. He's confident and cocky, and his pet raven, Jacques, is a bit too smart for his own good!
I had fun addapting our modern, romanticized ideas about pirates to my burgeoning steampunk world, albeit with a few changes: No self-respecting pirate captain is complete without an avian companion or a treasure chest. I liked the idea of a raven much better than a parrot, especially one with a clockwork wing, so I came up with Jacques. The treasure chest also has a distinct mechanical feel.
Jason's uniform is a combination of several historical uniforms. I pulled my references heavily from 18th century French and British naval officer outfits.
