This is Jared Walker. Jared is a psychic, as you can probably tell from the telekinesis he is using to take-apart the gun. Jared is from a world where mages and psychics are at war with people who favour technology and consider magic and psychic ability to be the devil's work. Jared himself is a pacifist and only uses his psychic abilites to defuse situations or restrain people, always seeking to find a peaceful solution. Again I come back to the idea of the peaceful hero. It's so rare in any age, it seems that the sword is the only viable avenue to heroism. I'm not opposed to that, but I thought that I would offer a rebuttal or two to provide a balance.
