Physical Appearance
Jaxon press is mostly hard lines and sturdy structure. He stands at approximately 6'1 and it's extremely clear the care and precision he takes of his body. His skin is olive in color but it's evident that it's tainted by the sun and not entirely natural. Naturally, his skin is almost pale but not quite pale enough to burn easily. Jaxon's body is extremely muscular, but they're not the kind that is entirely for show. They work, and he has the flexibility and agility to prove that. His shoulder's are thick and broad, the kind that look slightly awkward and mildly overly clumsy in a suit. Light, thin, blade scars litter his body below the head, mostly because in early blackguard training the face was off limits. They're thin and mostly faded, the result of having long been out of combat, but they're there.

His head would be considered 'oblong' in shape with a hard jawline and a pointed chin. His lips, while mildly pouty, are characteristically small in size in proportion to the size of his head. His eyes are extremely thin, but very expressive. Jaxon is a full spectrum polychrome, and this is obviously expressed in his eyes. Having ascended to Prism, his eyes are an unnatural shimmery shade of silver with iridescent rainbow. Naturally, his eyes are a soft green so the green around the pupil--while potentially striking if someone looks closely--is closer to natural in tinge. His hair is typically kept short and dark brown, nearly black, in color.

Jaxon is stylish, but he's in the position to be able to do so. While he dresses for whatever suits him at the time, it's typically expensive attire. He's appropriate when it comes to business, suit and tie all the way. Otherwise he wears flexible attire. Being on the Spectrum, the Chromatic Council, isn't exactly the safest job.

Jaxon likes to believe he's on the right of things. He's the kind of person that wants to see as little bloodshed as possible on either side of the fight while still winning. While he's more political than confrontational, that doesn't mean he can't defend himself either in verbose of physical altercation.

He's relatively friendly to his community but he has a natural aversion to the Talented and those associated with the Sa'Kage. Jaxon was raised to believe that the Sa'Kage was a corrupt organization hellbent on taking over the world with that corruption. As a result, unfortunately, anyone who even seems relatively poor he is suspicious. He was raised in the spotlight, with his father being the Red for most of Jaxon's life, so he's accustomed to putting on a mask and being 'appropriate' for his position.

As a result, Jaxon has a slight duality. In private he's relatively relaxed and easy going. He hates putting on pants if it's a day he doesn't have to and enjoys reading and physical training. He trains at luxin when capable but he can get color sick easily. In public, he's calm and reserved, thoughtful even. He's not a jabberjaw in any regards, always thinks before he speaks which can give him an air of haughtiness.

Dislikes include, but are not limited to, cherries, Sa'Kage and overtly power-hungry chromats.

When actively drafting, he's more highly influenced by Yellow despite being dominant Red. As a result, his mind is extremely clear. However, it is very possible to annoying him into outrage after a short time of active drafting, the red does come out quite clearly. Jaxon's mood is most affected by green, he tends to get lost in the wild nature of green, free-spirited as it were and sometimes he's overly honest because of it.

Abilities and Weaknesses
Superviolet - from 12% control to 72%
    Superviolet is still an invisible substance to the Prism, he still has to use his hands and other senses to utilize the invisible superviolet. However, while he might be color blind to superviolet he's been able to utilize this luxin in ways previous unthought. Superviolet has a signature that the Prism drafting superviolet can manipulate, encrypted messages are translated to a version of brale that only he can 'read' and it's not traditional brale, the symbols for letters do not match up whatsoever. This version of encrypted-brail Jaxon has spent a long time in the past several months learning when he became aware of its existence, at first it was jibberish, and now he's able to re-encrypt messages to his followers and soldiers that they in turn can 'read' despite the fact that Jaxon is colorblind in Superviolet.

Green – 85 to 90%

    Jaxon's Green is among the strongest of his abilities, likely due to the fact that he began as a red, yellow and green polychrome before becoming Prism. Though he hasn't excelled in Green as much as he'd have liked since becoming Prism, as it is one of the primary colors he uses for multi-purpose drafting. He's been known to draft mundane items such as mugs and scissors as necessary when the 'real thing' isn't available. The mood effect of green luxin as far as pressing it on others, eludes him completely, but he can control when the mood effect affects him during drafting. He usually uses green luxin's mood affect when he's in need of inspiration for extreme circumstances. In times of great passion when drafting green luxin, he cannot control how the mood strikes him. It requires concentration to control the effect.

Blue - from 48% to 100% - Superchromat

    It is surprising that Jaxon's ability in Blue skyrocketed so quickly, likely associated with the fact that the primary colors on the Spectrum are most common and two of the primary colors were Jaxon's first to be seen. Blue is still primarily a mood affect and stabilizer for the Prism, he's learned to press the calming and rationalization onto others--specifically in the War Room when discussing recent travesties--but the ability has expanded. Any time he drafts Blue, Jaxon's skin turns a weird blue-shade, ranging from bright blue to a pale shade, but further than that the under-the-skin packing he's been doing has allowed him a sort of durable-skin-armor the more he packs. It collects and dissipates quickly and while he can draft external Blue luxin to fashion armor and lackluster weapons--his real prowess in superchromat Blue is the ability to armor himself. Jaxon becomes a version of Green Golem... in Blue.
Orange - from 15% to 35%
    Jaxon's Orange... he still can't hex. Or at least he thinks he can't. There are subtle, insexplicable happenings surrounding the Prism when he drafts orange. All are almost insignificant, but if he thinks really hard about a tangible want, usually it occurs (i.e. I wish Paige would make me a sandwich). If the person the thought regards is likely to do a task he thinks about while drafting normally if he asks them, they will feel the 'charity' in doing what he would normally ask. Probably phrased terribly, but you get the picture. The hex-side of Orange for Jaxon is extremely lackluster and not at all honed, it's only happenstance his wishes are pressed on those around him. Otherwise, Orange is primarily used as a lubricant for building and enhancing his other colors.
Sub-Red - from 60% to 70%
    Jaxon is 99% flame retardant when it comes to the use of Sub-Red. With the mixture of Sub-Red, Blue and Orange he's able to completely cover himself in Sub-Red luxin very quickly--almost instantly--and be completely immune to flames (he might get a slight version of a sunburn if he enters flames too quickly). However, flame crystals still majorly allude him. His frustration with it is likely the reason he has the inability to produce them, but his flame crystals crumble within seconds. No idea how these dumb Sub-Red's do it, so annoying.
Paryl - from 70% to 80%
    Paryl was one of the easiest and most advanced luxin's Jaxon could produce upon first becoming Prism. He has found little use for it save metal detection and the occasional emergency torch, but he has been rather successful in drafting low-visibility luxin from torches he produces. Of course these luxin manipulations are much more weak than their natural counterparts but in a pinch they'll do. Superviolet is completely inaccessible through Paryl-torches, as is the majority of Sub-Red. His most proficient drafting from Paryl torches are in the primary colors that he is superchromat in, however, he cannot produce perfect luxin using Paryl torches. Ever.
White - from 8% to 15%
    Jaxon is not proficient in either of the near-mythological luxin colors Black or White. For white, he has been able to heal very few individual halos, extremely infrequently. Doing so requires a ridiculous amount of white and light present. Almost literally an entirely illuminated room with white-everything to draft just a tiny bit of the healing luxin. The solid form still majorly eludes him, he's produced about a nickel of the rock hard substance. One thing that is prevalent though, even if he can't produce an effect, the act of the attempt typically results in a mood-affect change on Jaxon himself. He becomes more hopeful, more inspired but these emotions often mix with his frustration and he tends to become... well... pitiful.
Black - from 5% to 10%
    Drafting Black luxin is nearly impossible, while he can now see the substance around him he can't beckon it to him. He can feel the ability just on the edge of his power, but if he even attempts to draft Black luxin the ability to draft any other color becomes temporarily unavailable and he still can't draft Black into anything usable. As a result, Jaxon has pretty much given up on hellstone at the moment.
Red - from 90% to 100% - Superchromat
    Jaxon is proficient enough in Red that he could be considered a pyrokinetic. Using the variety of luxin at his disposal, Jaxon has advanced so far into Red he's become superchromat. He can manipulate the stability of the Red luxin in such a way to create a time-bomb out of the liquid, gooey substance all on its own. No more need for Sub-Red. It's a method of atom manipulation in the luxin. In addition to manipulating his own Red, Jaxon can now disarm any traps or items that consist of Red.
Yellow - 80% to 98-100% flux - Superchromat
    Jaxon has always had the ability to multi-layer various shades of yellow luxin if given enough time, this allowed him to create a time-delayed-fuse on his other luxins. Now that he can draft perfect yellow luxin--though the solid-form can still prove rather difficult and requires time to draft guaranteed perfectly--the multi-layer form can be done almost without thinking. This allows Jaxon to create extended fuses for things such as bombs, traps or even formation of walls using Blue (delay Blue's solidification).

Jaxon is highly skilled at hand-to-hand combat including small weapons like daggers. His fighting style is very skilled with luxin-implemented styles. For example, throwing flammable projectiles at a target while fighting. He's also strength-oriented. So if he's out-played via agility he tends to react like a bull. Just charge.


Color sickness has almost become a moot thing as he progresses through being polychrome to actual Prism. Color sickness occurs if he uses more than four colors simultaneously for an extended period of time (4+ hours). Once color sickness sets in, however, he is sick for several agonizing hours (~8) where blinking, sleeping, eating and moving hurts. Sleep for the whole day, yes please.

The Link We Share
    This Link - Written by Indigo - When Jaxon awakes in the school infirmary he will find that his elbow was shattered, and is currently in a cast of luxin. One of the first things he will notice is the overwhelming feeling of anxiety. Where did that come from? Jaxon isn’t an anxious person….. At the moment, he won’t understand it, but he is getting the feelings from Paige. The two share a bond. When The Red helped Paige draft, the yellow luxin that flowed through her… should have hurt. It should have caused her to scream from pain. Instead, it felt right. Little is known about this phenomena. There are a few old books that make small references to people bonding via luxin. Most think it’s not possible. Yet Paige and Jaxon are able to feel what the other person is feeling.

    It will take time for the two of them to realize what is going on. Lying or trying to hide something from the other will be impossible. If one feels a strong emotion, the other will feel it as well. Some emotions might be harder to interpret.

Trigger Warnings
Parental Death
Mother: Maia Romano // Father: Connor Press, deceased // Brother:: Jared Press (-5) // Sister: Juniper Press (-8)

Jaxon is the eldest born to Maia and Connor Press. He was born in the middle of summer heat with very little complication, though a grueling forty-six hour labor a fact of which his mother consistently reminds him. Jaxon was raised in a rather rich household. His mother was a bichrome working for the Chromeria in the governmental liaison office, a job that while mostly deskwork but had her interacting quite frequently with the Spectrum... where she met Connor. Connor was the Red of the Spectrum and had been for the past ten years, when he met Maia. Love was not instant, in fact Maia disliked Connor from the very beginning but ultimately he won her over with his suave and debonair personality.

Maia discontinued any further education at the Chromeria and her job as one of the many government liaisons for the Chromeria in favor of raising her and the Red's children. She was a housewife and a stay at home mom, and if ever asked she was perfectly happy with that decision. Jaxon could never have wanted for anything growing up, except Connor was of the mind that all belongings had to be earned and so Jaxon had to pay for everything he wanted. At first it was just chores, and then errands. Jaxon was never exposed to the war between the Chromeria and the Sa'Kage, instead he grew up in blissful innocence but being taught a sense of responsibility and duty.

When he was ten years old, Connor had him subjected to the Trial and the Thresher, a practice long disposed of as any analysis before the age of puberty was subject to false positives--but Connor believed his son an exception and would not be swayed. It was a horrific ordeal, it terrified him. He felt as if snakes were crawling over his skin, he felt as if the screaming in his ears wouldn't cease. luxin has a way of messing with some people, giving them hallucinations, or at least that was what he was told when he ultimately passed the Trial. It was determined that he could see Red almost perfectly--a boastful fact his father often brought up when rubbing elbows with other political officials--and most of yellow. Normally, he would have been considered a monochrome since he couldn't see the entirety of yellow just ninety percent of it, but with his father being the Red he received special treatment. He was unaware of this until much later.

Thankfully, to live up to expectation, Jaxon ultimately was able to draft the entirety of Yellow save for perfect and lived up to the bichrome title he was given. Connor had been a polychrome, and it was expected that Jaxon would be the same. When Jaxon excelled at his Chromaturgy education through 'high school,' even ultimately skipped a year throughout his education, but lacked developing a third color, he was given a choice: follow in his mother's footsteps as a face of the Chromeria, or protect it with his life and enlist in the blackguard forging his own way in this world.

The bichrome chose the latter and enlisted in the blackguard at the age of seventeen, at his father's stamp of approval and Spectrum signature--yet another exception Jaxon would learn his name came with. In tandem, the bichrome would also enroll in further education at the pushing of his father, something in political sciences (bachelors). The work was grueling, physical training all day and mental at night, he often missed sleep but he fought for that program. His father told him political science blackguards were often given prestigious units upon completion of training, and if Jaxon did anything in his life it was to make his family proud. Even by force.

He was yet a blackguard in training and an undergraduate student for a mere year before everything came crashing down. During one grueling match, he attempted to throw a projectile ball of Red luxin to create a distraction and instead came Green. He lost that fight, since much of blackguard training is active combat between trainees and gained a few becoming scars and bruises. While the bruises went away, the scarring did not.

He was declared a polychrome. Jaxon's father had him removed from the blackguard under the excuse that he had yet to take the vow and polychromes were too valuable to waste on front-line combat. Jaxon protested, but having been raised to follow his father's orders, the protests were not much and fell on deaf ears. Instead, Jaxon continued his education in political science, achieved a masters by the age of twenty two while he also re-enrolled in remedial Green classes (not typically required but he needed to be proficient if he was going to be a polychrome). In the end, Jaxon used his achieved degree but it was a glorified position beside a politician as a consultant for the Chromeria. Jaxon served as part consultant, part arm candy, part celebrity and part bodyguard. A convoluted job that brought Jaxon very little joy and entertainment.

Jaxon did this job over the next few years. At the age of twenty eight, Jaxon's life changed dramatically. His father had been consulting with several disgruntled mages beholden to the Sa'Kage when he was abruptly assassinated. Someone must have found out his plan, Conner died in his bed of unknown causes but since he was completely healthy and nowhere near becoming a color wight, it was ruled as homicide.

The Chromeria voted that since Jaxon had the experience, and was Connor's son, that he should be the new Red under the excuse that some traditions should be kept within the family. In an attempt to live up to his father's expectations, he accepted the position and has been serving as the Red since.

Jaxon holds very little joy in being the Red, mostly because the current council looks at him as too young to contribute worthwhile ideas. To them he is a figure head, and while he doesn't agree with most of what they decide, he is still a voice and he is still trying to change things throughout Lochstone.

In 2016, Jaxon ascended to full spectrum polychrome and submitted for the position of High Prism after petitioning the Spectrum during a very public interview. During that time he was shot and hospitalized.

Over the last year, Jaxon has spent most of his time working on his relationship with his girlfriend, Paige Bradley -- The High Spectrum Green -- and keeping the Red from crucifying himself with his behavior with Southern Lochstone.

In early 2017, Jaxon was the target of an attempted kidnapping by an organization that called themselves the Forgotten Ones, he has since suffered extreme PTSD symptoms and is working through those issues.

RP Sample
Blackguards rarely earned enough free time doing their duties, or too many duties overcrowded any time off, but when Jaxon was the currently reigning Red it allowed him to order the blackguard to participate in whatever duties he decided at that moment. Manipulation of the system was a game that Connor Press had taught his son since Jaxon could walk; it was the way of the Chromeria. Even Jaxon rarely thought anything of it. As a result, the unit tasked to bodyguard the current Red was at the moment ordered to don board shorts, towels, sunscreen, sunglasses and sports equipment and escort Jaxon to the beach.

The team had spent most of the afternoon surrounding Jaxon in a giant circle while the drafter bask in sunlight and attempted to convince his bodyguards that no one was watching. That they could indeed relax. But each one of them was continuously paranoid. The muscled man signed and simply leaned back, until finally after several hours of Jaxon tanning, one of his bodyguards rummaged through the pack that Jaxon had bought to find more suntan lotion. Instead, he found a Frisbee. Jaxon pulled down the tip of his sunglasses and smiled that sly kind of smile, with a twinkle in his tri-colored eye. The one who had managed to pull the Frisbee from the sack was none other than Marshall, a green drafter whom had played competitive Frisbee several years ago.

While it was the blackguards duty to protect the Red, it was the Red’s duty to know who was protecting him. And Marshall suggested the troupe take a break, which results in an hour long game of Frisbee, competitive with a bunch of muscled and highly agile, trained men.

Covered in sweat and sand, Jaxon missed the latest throw resulting in a collective Ohhhhh from the playing team. He smiled and jogged his way towards the woman it landed on. He lifted his sunglasses away from his face and placed them on top of his head. ”Hey, sorry about that.” Jaxon extended his hand towards her, either she could hand the Frisbee over, stand up or completely ignore him. The match was hers.
