It had been a stroke of good fortune that Jolyon Kent hadn't been present at the Watcher's Council when it imploded in the spring of 2003. Not yet a year graduated from the Academy, he'd been assigned to shadow a senior watcher by the name of Arthur Framlingham for the length of his probationary term. Framlingham had often criticized Jolyon, like the older, wiser and more experienced tend to do to the young, though Jolyon had often given his mentor cause to do so. The day Caleb destroyed the Council, Jolyon had taken a detour to a pub instead of carrying out his duty as pupil to his teacher.
Since the destruction of the Watcher's Council, Jolyon has found himself aligned with Rupert Giles and the other remaining watchers. He trains at the Watcher's Academy in Hampshire and also has several slayers under his watch.
Jolyon Kent was born on November 13, 1963 in Glasgow, Scotland to a Scottish mother and English father. He attended Hogwarts as a Ravenclaw student from 1975-1982. His love for animals, coupled with high marks in Care of Magical Creatures (and low marks in everything else), led to Jolyon finding work at a petstore in his hometown of Glasgow before ultimately apprenticing as a veterinary healer in nearby Edinburgh. Upon becoming a master veterinarian, Jolyon returned to Glasgow and worked as a traveling healer, specializing in larger magical creatures. Now he's decided to try his hand at something new: teaching Care of Magical Creatures at Hogwarts.

In February 2004, Jolyon learned that Charles Abbott was his father, not Emanuel Kent. Charles came forward because he was dying and he wanted to meet his son. Charles died the following August. In March 2006, Emanuel died. Jolyon's mother Bridget is currently dating Gaius Lorey.
During the Sorting Ceremony at the start of the 2006-2007 school year, Jolyon saw twins Arielle and Asher Kent for the first time. His ex-wife Merrie came forward and admitted that Jolyon was their father. Jolyon agreed to keep the news to himself until Merrie thought it best to tell the twins, but an article by Rita Skeeter exposed the truth. Jolyon and Merrie re-married on August 7, 2010. Their second set of twins were born December 12, 2011: Barrett and Berenice.
