A bunch of happy-go-lucky hockey fanatics with a tendency to live in the moment.
History of the JOFAmily
In the old days, before the catastrophe that came to reshape the whole world, a big part of the country was ruled from Malung. (At least according to some sources). Colonel Niss had her base in Malung, and she was an energetic older woman with an ambition. She built her empire with scraps that others failed to see value in, mostly materials like odd pieces of leather, plastics and various scrap metal that remained from other industries. The ability to find use for things that others dismissed as useless gave Colonel Niss a great economic advantage, which because of this were able to produce magnificent armors and close combat weapons at almost no production costs. For people to be able to discern her products in a fast and simple way, she decided to mark them with her family name: JOFA.
In time Colonel Niss expanded her business violently. Because the production demanded great work efforts, but the work in it self was delicate, she decided to only hire family. The fact that her family in itself was not big enough was not a problem, because as we all know, you can always make more family! Colonel Niss appointed a "family committee" which were to secure the expansion of the family. Becoming a member of the family could happen in a lot of ways, usually through a kind of contract. These days it is not known what the contract said, but what is clear is that it involved some kind of spectacular initiation.
Colonel Niss was well-known to keep her friends close, and to ally herself with the most prominent people nearby. It did not take a long time before the JOFAmily were well-known and respected in the area. The years went by and in time Colonel Niss became too old to accompany the family on their expeditions, and after a time in bed she perished. During the following decades the remaining family members managed the business, and when the big catastrophe happened, the JOFA-armors and weapons became really requested. This new world with their slightly violent societies demanded some high quality equipment. The Family had expanded in such a way that some of them started to make longer expeditions, and even settling down in other parts of the country. They became the objects of great success in the serach for finding more materials and knowledge. During one of the expeditions to the north, they heard the tales of a legend which originated from before the big catastrophe. It was the legend of the Golden Puck!
The legend of the Golden Puck
The Legend tells a tale about a Golden Puck, which according to old manuscripts, are said to possess a great value. The Documents are so stale nowadays that the text is almost impossible to read, but it can be understood that the one who holds the Golden Puck have got a big upper hand in combat. According to some statements it is said to bring great happiness and luck to the person or group which holds it in their fist.
The JOFAmily down-regulated their production of armors and weapons to be able to spend more time looking for the Golden Puck. Many years of searching in the wasteland followed and the family lost many members. At one point it seems like the JOFAmily actually found the Golden Puck and got into a fight with each other, whereupon it was lost again. This quarrel is supposed to have led to a great difference in opinion on what the familys purpose was, and some of them left. These JOFAs became known as "STIGAs", which is an ancient word for traitor, and is actually the worst thing you can call a member of the JOFAmily.
The JOFAmily today
The once so powerfull and fierce JOFAmily are nowadays.... a fun bunch. They are misplaced literally everywhere, and most of them live for one purpose (except for the survival of their family, friends and relatives), and that is to find the Golden Puck. The part of the family which have now settled down in Stråssa have come down from the northern parts of the country, where they lived for many generations, cultivating their questionable morals and enriching the family relations even further. Nowadays it is kind of hard to make out the biological family bonds, quite often a persons sister can also be the persons grandmother and uncle. But what does it matter when they are all good friends that are happy together! Of course one becomes extra happy when the opportunity to make some caps or to play someone a prank turns up!
The JOFAmily also have a strong belief in the ancient Hockey, a once powerful being, which in the older times filled whole arenas with its followers, all chanting and praying to the almighty Hockey. Nowadays the arenas are silent, leaving the Family to wonder if the mighty Hockey have left for good.
Don't make the mistake to call the JOFAmily stupid, because event though they have a certain appearance they are very capable if they want to be. The fact that they solve their problems and tasks in a slightly different and sometimes odd way than what is reasonable is a different matter.
Members of the JOFAmily
No file found.
Lill-Jofa Jansson, second in command is a fiercely loyal person. When Stor-Jofa is present, she is a stern backup. Nobody shall interrupt or question Stor-Jofa (that’s clearly what a Stiga would do). For reasons that are unclear to most people, she always carries a wooden butterknife. f Stor-Jofa goes away, Lill-Jofa gains command. Her three steps to sucess is:
1. Fake it ’til you break it
2. Respect authority (Especially her’s)
3. Discussion before battle, or shall we say talking until the other part surrenders?
A once fierce competent warrior with military-like education and experience on the battlefield. Nowadays she likes observing people more than smash them. And booze, she likes booze. No one really knows why she was sent back from the battlefields in the south, and she does not like to talk about it. There are some rumors that she made a great mistake that led to some sort of catastrophe. She was allowed to keep her title "Agitator", and keeps it very dear. Don't you dare to make fun of it.
Agitator Harrí is probably very soft on the inside. Probably. She likes to hang out with new people, but chooses them wisely. The loyalty to the family are unquestionable and she would walk through fire for all of them.
He is lowest in the pecking order in the Jofa-clan. He's respected....almost...but is often the target of jokes and pranks. He's the baby brother of the group but wants, wishes and sometimes believes that he's higher up in the hierarchy. He seeks status by interact with "cooler people". Which almost always fails due to his incompetent social skills. He has been a member of the Jofamily since birth and would do anything for them.
Nils Oscar "Brännarn" Andersson
He derives from an off-shoot branch of the main JOFAmily and since genealogy is a four vowel word, he's everyone's cousin. His main contribution to the family is booze, hooch, liqour, spirits and alcohol, with some firewater for the really discerning. He can also shoot somewhat decently if need be but he prefer to talk it out over some liquid lubricant.
Backen Boman is the pink sheep of the Jofamily, a real newbie to basically everything but always willing to try her best. She loves things (and people) of all shapes and sizes, could be seen as somewhat of a hoarder. Backen does not have a high-status position in the family but is always the one to provide back-up, whether it means running in head first when wrecking or making sure that Stor-Jofan gets his morning coffee. Her philosophy of life is to have fun, say yes and to gather as many things on her person as she can. Loves to meet new people and is a bit of a hugger!
She is one of the people handling recruitment to the family. She has some social skills… not many, but one or two. For some reason she doesn't speak loudly about, she never drinks or takes any drugs before three o'clock. She always thinks she's welcome everywhere and can't really take a hint. In the evenings you will find her in the bar, at the dance floor or in someone's camp telling stories and legends about the Golden Puck.
Freya af Robur
Freya is the twin sister of Quercus (and obviously the smarter one) and is a distant cousin to the main branch of the JOFAmily. She and her brother lived in the north in the beginnings of their lifes, but a thirst for adventure (and riches) found them wandering away from the rest of the family. Long have they travelled, and much have they seen, but they have never forgotten the rest of the family. When another JOFA calls, they will do whatever is needed to help, and hopefully not kill each other in the meantime.
Quercus af Robur
Quercus af Robur is the dumber twin (guess who writes these texts) to Freya. He and his sister has wandered the world (or at least a couple of hundred mil) hunting rumours of treasures. Quercus may have been dropped on his head when a mere babe, but he has a strategic mind and surprisingly much battle experience. If you say it is because of all the times he have had to rescue his much more hotheaded sister, she will vehemently and violently deny it.
Born in a great icegang arena, rasied up by the Jofamily to believe in the power of hockey. Due to alot of head trauma when Puck was young he sometimes suffers when it comes to his cognitive thinking, so when counting and keeping check of his caps, he does not always manage to his favor. Puck is also quite good at over exaggerating, so do not always believe in everything that he says. Puck also loves ducks, though he is not sure of what they are!
He cant handle other survivers talking ill of hockey which can result in a short fuse and probably some sort of altercation, although more surely if he is accompanied by his Jofamily. He Strives for the survival of their belief and lives for his family.
