The possession of a body, once a rare privilege, has now been brought within the reach of almost anyone, and certainly confers no special status. This, however, does not deter Jonathan from claiming seniority over Zander and all the other personae, simply on the grounds of having been around when the body was first activated. It is arguable that almost anyone could have made a better fist of childhood and adolescence than he did: however, since the others did not deign to show up till these traumas had run their course, the argument is largely academic.
Again, some might point out that very few people let out their bodies to other personae, and those who do are usually considered to be in need of treatment. This is a far more serious point, and if any of the personae in contention were to prove significantly more able (or, if possible, less able) than Jonathan where basic life skills are concerned, there might be grounds for anxiety. However, since Zander and the others seem just as prone to large-scale incompetence as Jonathan, the view taken by most observers is that a difference which makes no difference is no difference.
As prior owner of the body, Jonathan was among the closest of the personae to his parents. His mother passed away in 2001, and his father in 2005. He misses them a great deal. He also has a brother, who lives in Nottinghamshire.
Physically, Jonathan is tall, hairy, growing an impressive pasta pod and inherently unkempt. Various attempts to kemp him have been made over the years: the most successful has been that of the Countess, who has managed to decant him into various costumes, which he wears with considerably more aplomb than he can muster for a normal suit and tie.
