"Kaz. This whole 'shoot me' thing is starting to concern me.""
— Jesper Fahey, Six of Crows

Jesper Fahey is a Zemeni-born sharpshooter and a member of The Dregs. Appearance

Jesper is of Zemeni nationality and has dark brown skin. He always has his pearl-handled pistols with him, wherever he goes. Fellow Dregs member Inej Ghafa describes him as being 'long and lean', especially without his pistols and remarked on how he looked like a gangly-limbed bird. Jesper has gray eyes because his father is from the Wandering Isles.

PersonalityEdit

Jesper is a gambler. He is witty and sarcastic, but is friendly when he wants to be. Though Jesper has good intentions, he can be loose-tongued at times. He is good-natured, cocky, and teasing.

When Jesper feels overwhelmed he rests his hands on his pistols to keep from fidgeting.

Because of the recklessness that comes from not using his Grisha powers, his impulsiveness sometimes leads to him to making bad decisions. Because of this he feels like a screwup and he has low self-esteem.

In Six of Crows, he has a crush on Wylan Van EckJan Van Eck's son.

HistoryEdit

Jesper grew up on a farm with his father and Grisha mother. They were all very close. His mother died because of her powers, and afterwards he was ordered by his father to never use his own to prevent anything similar from happening to him.

However, when a Grisha doesn't use their powers, they become "sick". For Jesper, this meant that a seemingly endless amount of energy built up inside of him, causing him to become reckless and impulsive.

Jesper left his home country Novyi Zem, ostensibly to attend university in Ketterdam. However, he soon became addicted to gambling and fell into debt to support his addiction. He uses gun fights and gambling to distract himself from the restlessness and anxiety he feels, craving adrenaline rush.

He joined the Dregs soon after arriving in Ketterdam to cover up his gambling debts, as well as support his addiction, and became an ally and friend of Kaz Brekker. At the beginning of Crooked Kingdom , his father still thinks he attends the university.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Jesper is a Grisha, specifically a Fabrikator, otherwise known as a Durast. In Novyi Zem, Grisha are referred to as zowa, meaning "blessed". However, he has not been trained, so his powers are not properly honed and rather weak. He's also a talented sharpshooter and marksman. Wylan believes that the reason Jesper is such good shot is that he uses his powers to guide his bullets.

In Six of Crows, Jesper uses his powers to help Kaz and Wylan break out of their cells in the Ice Court

Relationships Edit

Wylan Van Eck Edit

Jesper and Wylan are shown to be in a relationship by the end of Crooked Kingdom.

Colm Fahey Edit

Colm Fahey, a Zemeni jurda farmer, is Jesper's father.

Aditi Hilli Edit

Aditi Hilli was Jesper's mother and Colm Fahey's wife. Aditi taught Jesper how to shoot. Seeing as she was a Fabrikator, too, this fuels Wylan's theory about Jesper's aim.
