Slender, handsome, and tightly muscled, Jarlaxle has the looks of a dandy. He chooses the brightest colors for his clothes and wears a cape that shines in every color in both the visible and infrared spectra. He commonly wears high boots and bracelets that could be made to clack loudly or be silent at his discretion. He also wears a mysterious eye-patch. He often shifts the patch from eye to eye to keep others guessing as to its powers. Another staple item is his wide-brimmed hat, plumed with a diatryma feather and worn atop his clean-shaven scalp.
He has a wild reputation following him but for now he runs an inn at Luskan (known as One-Eye Jax) and seems to meddle with all kinds of business in the city.
