Jarl is a giant, thus being much larger than a normal human. He wears a Viking helmet with curved horns, and his facial beard is so large that it covers most of his body, with its shape reminiscence of a mountain. He wears a dark feather coat.
Jarl deeply values militarism, as shown when he reminded the young giants on Elbaf that they were warriors above all else. While dedicated to militarism, Jarl is very open-minded as he readily accepted Carmel's claimed ideology in pacifism to engage in commerce instead of plundering. He strongly cherished camaraderie and beliefs, as he mourned the death of his lifelong comrade, Jorl, and noted that had he died a warrior's death, it would have been acceptable, hence could not forgive Charlotte Linlin for killing Jorl in a disgraceful manner. His strong respect for Carmel, however, led him to reluctantly spare the child's life and allowed them to leave. Like many other people, he has a unique laugh: "Bojajaja."
Abilities and PowersEdit
As a former captain of the Giant Warrior Pirates, Jarl is an exceptionally powerful warrior even among the giants of Elbalf, alongside Jorl, he is deeply respected as a hero with Hajrudin showing utmost admiration for him.
He was shown using a longsword in an attempt to stab a sleeping Charlotte Linlin.
Some time ago, Jarl and Jorl were the captains of the Giant Warrior Pirates, and the two fought alongside each other for three centuries. However, they eventually left the crew and the title was passed on to Dorry and Brogy.
Sixty-three years before the present day, Jarl and Jorl went to Warland Village on Elbaf together in order to partake in a feast with the residents of Sheep's House before the Winter Solstice Festival. They commended Raideen on training Hajrudin to be a strong warrior. The feast then began, and the villagers partook in eating semla.
On the seventh day of the 12-day fast, an incident occurred where Linlin devastated an Elbaf village due to her craving sickness and fatally injured Jorl. The giants were able to calm Linlin by giving her semla. After Linlin fell asleep, Jarl prepared to kill her but Carmel stood in his way, pleading the elder giant to spare her on the condition that she would leave Elbaf with Linlin. Jarl accepted Carmel's terms and angrily told her to leave.
He was later seen visiting the graves of Jorl and a few other giants.
