He stays in the city of Solitude but speaks to the Dragonborn about exploring landmarks around Skyrim. Specifically the city of Windhelm and the ruin Volskygge. Jawanan was drawn to Solitude by Fihada's skills as a fletcher. Jawanan hoped that Fihada would teach him how to become a master fletcher.
Should the Dragonborn drop a piece of armor from the inventory whilst he is present, he will ask whether or not he can keep it. Should the Dragonborn allow him to keep it, he will pick it up and the Dragonborn will gain his friendship.
Strangely, speaking to him will not add the Volskygge location to the map.
