Living on the streets is hard enough, but living on the streets of a coastal city after the Kaiju attacks began? Near impossible. You have to be quick on your feet and ready to run and hide, ready to do anything to survive. Aladdin had been doing this for most of his life, and even though he was in a pretty bad situation, he always gave whatever he had to spare to the younger kids, those who survived when their parents did not.

One day while out and about, he laid his eyes on the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. In an attempt to impress her he began chatting up how he was a Jaeger Pilot and how tough it was out in the streets. She, seeing right through his bluff, humored his attempt and even asked him to show her a few pointers then asked him for a friendly sparring match. 

Two moves later Aladdin was on the floor and Jasmine revealed that she actually was in training to become a pilot. He fell in love instantly. She gave him one more shot, and upon seeing what incredible raw talent he had realized what a good team they might make. She urged him to sign up for the corps and after some extensive training, they streamlined him right up to the top. Their fighting styles vary quite a lot, but meld together beautifully in the drift. 

Their Jaeger(Arabian Knight) is a little bit smaller than other Jaegers because it has an experimental flight drive. As you might guess it’s quite hard to get something near the size of a skyscraper off the ground for very long. But what it lacks in size it does not lack in power and has taken down many Kaiju and plans to take down many more.

Aladdin: Genie [ENFP]

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): aware of what isn’t being said. Able to weave random information int o the current situation. Entertains a wealth of possible interpretations based off one idea. Trust the result of brainstorming. Pluck ideas or analogies from external sources. Follow potential possibilities and juggle many thoughts, tangents, and ideas at once. Bypass conventional barriers (culture, generation, class) that separate people. Desire to make change to incorporate their latest insights.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): stay with what’s important to themselves. Gut feelings about right and wrong. Knows what they want, what motivates them, or how they feel inside. Know when someone’s behavior is insincere. Trust and stick to a personal belief system, staying focused on what they want for themselves or others. Deep caring, loyalty, enthusiasm and feelings for people and issues are communicated through actions. Black and white values.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): organizing data, space, or projects. Drawing diagrams. Noticing if something isn’t functioning right. Aware of time management. Want to conform their thinking to observable facts. Lay out reasonable explanations for decisions or conclusions.

Introverted Sensing (Si): neglect the details even though they want to be well prepared. Eventual acquirement of the patience for careful data gathering and respect for the work, ideas, and examples of those who have come before. Nostalgia for the past but little desire to participate in tradition. Rich memory for detail; the details are lost in the present but recalled with clarity later. Enjoys reliving good memories.

Genie is a boundless fountain of ideas. He is flamboyantly theatrical and delighted to bounce his ideas off a captive audience. He goes through them quickly as he searches for just the right one (let’s see, what should the monkey be changed into?), which leads to more and more ideas… hey, let’s give Al or maybe just Din an entire entourage! He reads Aladdin quite well and knows immediately the right solution to his “prince” problem—tell Jasmine the truth! (Ne). Genie desires his freedom more than anything. He shares that desire with Aladdin in carefully chosen words that hold enormous personal significance to him. He absolutely refuses to do anything that violates his principles – like making people fall in love or raising them from the dead (Fi).

The Genie has rules and sticks to them. He gets an idea and makes it a reality. He bosses his companions around and sticks to the facts of the situation when reasoning with Laddie… err… Aladdin (Te). He morphs into and references a huge number of tangible things from “our” world as source material, using them to stem more ideas and for comic relief. Genie doesn’t realize how much he’s going to miss his friends and the “sameness” of his situation until he’s freed from it (inferior Si).
