H E A D C A N O N S:
- Jer was born into a family with high
expectations, large sums of money and an enormous amount of drama to
follow them. His mother’s side completely loaded while his father’s
side, not so much. His mother wanted him to be the perfect son, but he
could never live up to her expectations.
- When Jer
was around 8 years old, Jer’s mother died of a sudden heart attack
behind the wheel as she was driving him to a karate lesson. Jer survived
with a few cuts and bruises. A few months later, Jer found his father
passed out from an overdose after coming home from school, his father
lived but the trauma from these events lead Jer to have PTSD.
high school in his grade 10 year, Jer met a classmate who introduced
him to the world of underground fighting. He hadn’t been sure of it at
first, but quickly found that it was a good release of all his built up
anger and while he’s given it up in recent years, the urge to get back
into it is strong for him. When he gets angry, Jer is never afraid to
throw a fist.
- Jer gave up underground fighting
after a bad fight got him put into the hospital, where they found he had
a heart defect that had gone unnoticed until then. He we taken in for
surgery to try and fix it, but he came out worse than when he went in.
Jer ended up having to have a heart transplant about a year and a half
later after being put on the transplant list. He goes for check ups ever
- He maintains an 4.0 GPA and takes the time to volunteer.
C O N N E C T I O N S:
► Clare Edwards (cousin) - These two didn’t always get
along. Jer was a nasty kid, always picking his nose and throwing dirt at
her, Clare didn’t like it. Jer had been closer to Darcy for the longest
time, though once he was a teenager he found himself liking Clare
better. They read the same books, liked the same movies and even were in
the hospital at the same time together. They started getting along
better, but still to this day Jer hates that he was mean to her as
Tori Santamaria (crush) - They had an elective class
together, and Jer has been heart-eyes for her ever since. He never tried
to talk to her at first because he thought he was totally out of her
league, not because he was ugly but just because she was so beautiful to
him. Later in the year, they were assigned to work with each other on a
project and have been friends since, but he has a totally obvious crush
on her and is always flirting with her without even meaning to.
Cardinal (friend) - Jer tends to rub people the wrong way without
meaning to sometimes and that’s exactly how this friendship started. He
made a comment that Grace didn’t like their first time meeting at the
hospital after running into each other, and then for the next week Jer
did everything in his power to try and fix it. Eventually, it worked and
the two were able to work things out and become quite close. Even
though they’re only recently friends, Jer would do anything for her.
