Jethro is the sheikh, leader, both spiritually and in mundane matters of the midjanites,an arabic tribe. The father of Tzipporah and her three little sisters he becomes the father-in- law and to some degree mentor of Moses. Old and venerable, with long white hair and beard but not only sound, strong and hale but almost a giant physically he almost seems like an avatar of God on earth! Personally he is outgoing, merry and jovial.Of course he is also a positive father- fugure opposite of Seti
