His cooking skills being criticized (Somewhat)
Jamie Lake is one of the primary characters and the main protagonist featured in Riftwalkers. An affable yet witty young man aspiring to become a great chef, his encounter with a certain Corrina ropes him into her escapades beyond the mysterious rifts occurring throughout Arcadia and outside of its borders.
He currently lives in an apartment somewhere in Arcadia with his younger sister, Petunia.
General Appearance Edit
With the necklace worn to hide his troll-like features, Jamie comes across as a rather attractive young adult of fair complexion. He has a svelte and lean build.
Whenever the necklace is not in use, Jamie's quarter-troll heritage has been revealed
As an accomplished practitioner when it comes to the culinary arts, Jamie is the type of person who makes his first impressions not through his behavior but rather his talents in cooking.
His time in racking up his culinary skill developed a bit of a arrogant side to his attitude, occasionally boasting his skills and snarking back at those who find his talents inferior. When criticized by culinary professionals and family members, especially his father, Jamie grudgingly manages to keep his arrogance in check.
Jamie has shades of greed as a result of keeping up with the payment for the apartment he is currently staying in.
