Jean is kind of dumb. He’s also pretty trusting, which is probably why he gets along so well with Pinkamena. Though maybe he just has a death wish. Yeah, pretty sure he does.
He doesn’t have a home and mostly lives in garbage cans, unless he can con someone into letting him live with them by convincing them that he’s their spirit animal. He is currently living in Pinkie bakery after a drunken adventure involving a vacancy at Katz Motel and a magic cloud that produces Kahlua Coffee. He found about Spirit Animals after an extended period living behind a New Age Bookstore.
People seem think to he drinks a lot, but he’s honestly limited to what he can find, since no liquor store will sell to a lemur, even one as eloquent as Jean. So for the most part he’s actually fairly sober.
The one thing that really brings him down is that he’s more or less defenseless when compared to everyone else out there, being just a talking lemur and everything. Also Doorknobs that are too high to reach without jumping. The world really wasn’t made for lemurs you know.
He HATES Sloths. You can compare him to any other small mammal and he’ll more or less shrug it off, but DO NOT call him a sloth. He’s kinda speciesist against them. On the other hand, he will defend the honor of Lorises to the death, since they are the only other Pro-Simians.
Whenever he turns into a human, he will be naked, unless he has those pants Michael Jur made for him. He’s got the body of Stephen Merchant, the nose of Adrien Brody, Ross Perot’s ears and Tom Baker’s hair and his eyelid are constantly darkened, like he hasn’t gotten enough sleep in weeks.
Jean has next to no sense of time and does not actually know how old he really is since he was an Adult by the time he left Madagascar. For those curious, he is Eight years old, meaning he is a little over middle aged for a wild lemur.
Jean enjoys collecting names. His current full name (according to him) is Jean Jackie “The” Lem Lemmy Lemur. He has a traditional Lemurian name but he is incredibly embarrassed about it. He got his first name from Jean-Luc the Acrobat, a former co-worker at the circus he belonged to.
He is terrified of clowns, especially Bobo. He’s actually terrified of anything that reminds him of the circus, including peanuts.
