During the Season 15 elections, Ji-Eun retreated to the Mechanics' Shadows in exchange for Foxy Pebble as a result of the Mechanics' Foreshadow will, resulting in a combined 10.1 -> 10.9 stat increase.
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
Jasper Ji-Eun is a shadows team member and batter for the Core Mechanics.
Arrival in the Core
Jasper is a former resident of Mechanicsville, Virginia, and a self-proclaimed lifelong fan and enemy of the Baltimore Crabs. Jasper was pursuing an undergraduate degree in sculpture before they tripped and fell into the Jlames River, and subsequently washed up in the Core. Witnesses say that he "cried with relief" when they realized they no longer had to finish their finals.
Personality and Appearance
Jasper is a somewhat introverted Korean person, who tends to project a fairly boisterous outward persona. They are an actor, sculptor, and deliveryperson.
He usually wears functional clothes with pockets, bags, pouches and straps to attach things to. All of these zip or button closed.
Jasper uses Core Sign Language, or CoreSL, and has a set of holographic hard-light arm emiters on their elbows to enable him to sign. Jasper uses them to help pull him through the crags and bars of the Core's geometry. They can often be seen using these to get around the core in a variety of ever-changing methods, from dashing to double jumping to platforming from pillar to pillar.
Life Outside Blaseball
Jasper enjoys delving deep into the unmapped core, leaving high voltage stickers, railings, and other safety measures where appropriate. As a result of their adventures, they have an impressive mental map of the deep core, and began working with C.O.R.N.E.R.S. to deliver packages and uses those delivery trips as an opportunity to pick up both inspiration and scrap metal for their artwork.
Jasper experiences chronic migraines, and produces and sells a line of affordable custom vogmasks. Jasper has been open about how their illness has affected their work, and has been a strong advocate in remodeling The Pillars to reduce potential triggers.
Art and Sculpture
They are also a sculptor, describing their art as "post-neo-new wave no wave reconstructive deco-brutalist". He focuses more on aesthetics over function, with the exception being the highly functional bodies he accidentally created which some non-corporeal Core sprites to possess whenever they want to affect the physical world.
Their sculptures are meant to be "viewed from many angles! Here- come hang from this and look at it from- yes, precisely like that! What do you think? Does it look like the abstract concept of freedom to you?" While first impressions have varied from "I can't believe so many colors fit into something so angular" to "0/10 blatantly inedible", over time many have come to appreciate Jasper's "bold sense of personal expression" and "neat shiny things".
