Before Grimgar

Jesse Smith grew up somewhere in North America and gained an interest in Japanese culture (particularly in anime and manga). He was often bullied for his hobby and was called a 'geek'. One day out of anger, he physically fought back his bully, Matt (マット, Matto), only to get assaulted back. Since then, Jesse exercised on a daily basis to gain muscle strength and was never picked on since. Years later, he moved to Japan as an exchange student. His fluency in the culture and language gained him numerous friends for the first time in his life.

At some point in his life he entered the world of Grimgar and became a volunteer soldier. He ended up in Thousand Valley for some time before an encounter with a forest bear. The altercation left him half-dead in the forest and during his last moments, he remembered his previous life as a foreigner in Japan who was interested in anime and manga. A female then greets him and disclose to him of an unknown method to revive back from the dead. She then bid him farewell as they might 'see each other again'.


Jesse is an unorthodox fighter, who not only is skilled in close combat, but is also capable of magic.
