He has the elegance of an athlete’s and the physique of a warrior; He weighs 15 Stones (210 Ibs) and is 6’4″ tall. He has long graceful bones and flat muscles that flowed smoothly from the curves of chest and shoulder to the slight concavities of belly and thigh. The bones are solid and elegant shaped shoulders broad and straight. The shoulders flat and square-set and the backbone a smooth, straight groove cut deep between the rounded columns of muscle that rose on either side of it. He has long legs, hard, slim thighs, shapely calves and feet rather large, but they are lean and bony and thus appear elegant.
His eyes are open and straight out. He has a distinctive, friendly face bright with a big mouth and eyes like sapphires. The eyes radiate deep lying in dark blue and they are slanted, like a cats (always mentioned as Frazer eyes) The eyelashes are long and thick, but strangely colored: at the tips of dark maroon, and at the roots very bright, almost straw-blond. He has rough, thick and reddish eyebrows.
Jamie has wide cheekbones and an edgy, energetic chin. The nose long, straight and sharp cut their teeth even and white.The skin is bright with golden glow and healthy color. The hair change depending on the season, but are mainly copper red. In the morning sun shine golden red hair and wet they look like old bronze. He has very thick hair.
The whiskers are copper and rust, but very soft, even though they feel at the same time bristly.
He has cinnamon-colored armpit hair and soft hairs on the backbone, which merge into a red-gold fuzz on buttocks and thighs in order to eventually condense into a bush of auburn curls.
Jamie has muscular forearms. His hands are big with rich, reddish hairy fingers.
It must have been quite a beautiful back at one time. His skin was fair and fresh, and the lines of bone and muscle were still solid and graceful.
