Jehiel represents uniqueness, artistry, creativity, depth, beauty, passion, intensity, and confidence. Jehiels are born to be leaders. Quite stubborn, but there's good reason to be so, because they are always proven right in the end.
People don't always believe them. People have a habit of doubting a Jehiel because Jehiels take positions and hold beliefs that are not always popular with the majority. It doesn't always mean they are wrong. It just means that they see into things, people, and issues more deeply than most people.
