The name's Jaune Arc. Short, sweet, rolls off the tongue, ladies love it.
~ Jaune Arc


Jaune Arc is the leader of Team JNPR who wields a sword and shield named Crocea Mors, an heirloom formerly belonging to his great-great-grandfather. He comes from a long line of esteemed Hunters, and feels pressured to live up to their reputations. Because of his family line, Jaune is obsessed with being a hero. However, he was never formally trained like the rest of his family, which causes him to lack self-esteem and assign a lot of importance to his image as a fighter. He also does not seem to be very proud of having a weapon given to him, rather than earning or crafting it on his own, referring to his weapon as a simple "hand-me-down" instead of a "family heirloom." However, Jaune has demonstrated capable leadership skills and good tactical judgment. He also possesses a strong aura which allows him to heal himself, although he cannot yet control this ability.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Crocea Mors: Jaune Arc's signature weapon, stated to be passed down from his great-great-grandfather, who used it in a the Great War. The sword itself is a simple arming sword with a blue handle and a golden cross-guard. Jaune can transform the sheath into a shield for combat. The shield is a white heater shield with a gold trim, and it shows Jaune's symbol colored in gold in the center. It appears to deploy with significant force, enough for its tips to embed themselves in a wooden doorway. Both the sword and shield are shown to be incredibly durable, despite apparently being forged several generations prior to the present time. The sword is sharp enough to decapitate an Ursa Major, while the shield is strong enough to take several direct blows from an Ursa, a Death Stalker, and Cardin Winchester's mace with no apparent damage.

  • Upgrade: The sheath can extend the sharp edges of the shield and become a wider sword. This makes the shield heavier giving it more power in its strike
