Race: Toon, gremlin
Age: ??? (won't answer this question)
Personality: Jozzik the Great--and he absolutely insists on people calling him "the Great"--is almost the embodiment of showbusiness. He's flashy, flamboyant, loud, and in-your-face, and he absolutely loves to be at the center of attention. He's got charisma to spare, which helps because he also has a mischievous streak a mile wide. He loves playing pranks and poking fun at people, including himself. He's extremely self-assured, which can sometimes come off as arrogance, but beneath it all he does actually have a good heart. Can be a surprisingly good therapist.
-As a Toon, Jozzik can shrug off physical damage that would kill a normal mortal--he's nigh indestructible. Normal toon weaknesses apply, though (dip, paint thinner, etc.)
-He has magic abilities; mostly he just uses his magic to produce special effects, such as constantly emitting pink sparkles. He specializes in illusions, but is not limited to just illusory magic. He also uses his magic abilities to grant wishes--but only to those who can win his game show, Long Shot.
-The more people that watch his show, the stronger his magic gets.
Long Shot: The gameshow that Jozzik hosts. Winners of the game get their heart's desire, in the form of getting one wish granted. Contestants make their wish at the beginning of the show; the bigger the wish, the harder the games they have to play. Due to Jozzik's chaotic nature, no two shows are the same. He's constantly changing up the games, and sometimes they get truly crazy. Think Japanese Game Show levels of crazy, dialed up to 11 with a dash of magic thrown in.
Most of the games in Long Shot are harmless, but Jozzik DOES have a tendency to forget that non-Toons aren't quite as resilient as he is, which can be dangerous and even potentially deadly for his contestants. He does try his hardest to step in to prevent any deaths on his show, but people can and have gotten injured. (Usually he tries to heal them afterwards, but he's not the greatest at healing magic.)
Contestants get onto the show via Jozzik inviting them on; sometimes they're given advance notice and given the opportunity to accept or decline. And sometimes he just teleports them into the set with zero warning.
