Jors was created by contributing author Tanya Huff. He is featured in multiple anthology short stories in the Herald Jors Miniseries. The stories have been collected into an ebook-only work, The Demon's Den and Other Tales of Valdemar.

Jors grew up in a forestry settlement near Greenhaven.[1] He dislikes staying in Haven, preferring life on the road. He goes back out on circuit at the earliest opportunity, which leaves him little time to get to know many other Heralds.

He is a skilled tracker and expert archer.[1]
