J is for Jailer

A jailer is an ideal companion to have when exploring dungeon. Jailers work in jails or dungeons. They spend most of their waking day there. They know regular noises from irregular noises, normal smells from abnormal smells. Not only that, but they are likely already immune to any disease or poison the party happens upon.

Personality-wise, jailers tend to be rather apathetic to the whining plights of the accused, which they have to listen to daily. Jailers may be a bit sadistic, being able to treat prisoners in pretty much any way they desire. They may also acquire a bit of a god complex, since they essentially control the lives of the scum of the Empire. It is no wonder many jailers seek to advance their careers as Slavers or Torturers.

Until then, give them a club and bring them to the dungeon crawl with you. You may be surprised at how helpful the Jailer is.
