Likes & Dislikes
"You know, people have said that the Aumerle charm and wit is a family trait, and I'm living proof."
Virtues & PerksThough it takes a bit to open up, Jacob can be a very funny and charismatic person. He is the life of any party he attends with his loud and boisterous personality. While few, the people he's become attached to and formed bonds with will see a much more compassionate person who loves to ramble on about his niche interests. He is very affectionate with his romantic partners and will often go out of his way to shower them in gifts and physical attention. He is a talented person when allowed to express himself freely. Not only being a good actor, but also has a lot of potential to be a great screenplay writer as well, having a few screenplays he's written for fun, but hidden away out of shame.
"Or.. maybe you're just jealous that I can afford $200 luxury shoes and then post them to my instagram of 10k followers, on my $999 phone, bitch!"
Vices & FlawsJacob was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and is what many would call a spoiled brat. He often comes off as insensitive, immature, entitled, and egotistical. He can be incredibly judgmental of others, but even more so of himself. He has huge self esteem issues which effect his daily life. He constantly aims to look perfect and can never achieve anything close to his own standards. His flaws make him pretty unlikable to the unfamiliar, meaning he has very few real friends, at least genuine ones who don't use him. He has problems with romantic relationships as well, since he dates girls in order to repress his homosexuality, but not being attracted to any of them, the relationships always fail quickly. To make up for it, he is addicted to social media, and constantly seeks validation on it.
Motivation & ConflictJacob simply wants to be able to express himself. He is constantly hiding under a persona of what he thinks people want him to be, and fears the reactions he'd get from people if they knew his true identity. He wishes to find someone to open up to, but he lacks the trust in others to do so, from years of being used by others for his money or reputation.
PetsThe family had a hairless sphinx cat named that was added to the house by the demand of Elise who really wanted a cat, unfortunately due to Jacob's cat allergy, that had to make a compromise with a hairless breed. But Elise hated the cat the day it arrived, calling it a gross rat thing. Jacob was never terribly into cats (for obvious reasons) so when Selene started coming over, she adopted the cat for herself, renaming her to Marie Curie.

Towards Jacob Aumerle
Jérémie knew that Jacob existed but he had lost contact with the Aumerle family decades ago, so they never formally met until Selene's mother was suddenly married into the family, in which she invited him her first time there for moral support. Originally feigning as her boyfriend, Jacob was quick to notice Jérémie's striking resemblance to a portrait of him hanging in the main hall. At that point Jérémie came clean about his true identity. It took a while for Jacob to process but eventually he understood with the limited information he was given about the whole undeath situation. Originally they didn't get along well, and was unsure how to feel about him being gay, but it was Jérémie's eventual acceptance of his sexuality that gave Jacob the confidence to come out to his father.
Relationship DescriptionJérémie and Jacob have very similar posh and eccentric personalities, but where they clash is the severe generational gap between them. Jacob the social media obsessed teen, and Jérémie the century old, prudish demon still stuck in his ways. The two of them but heads a lot, but deep down, Jérémie appreciates having family again after so long.
Towards Selene Russel
Towards Jacob Aumerle
Rodrick Aumerle, a recent divorcee, met Jesse Russel at not a strip club and the two fell in love and eventually got married. Jesse brought along her daughter Selene, making her and Jacob officially step siblings. Selene admittedly met him while carrying some negative bias on the whole situation, which made their first conversations together rather awkward and a touch hostile. It was only after staying at the mansion during her break that she noticed Jacob struggling with some issues and prodded him for more information, eventually asking him about his sexually, which he made him anxious and intensely defend his "straightness". After telling him how she was a lesbian, he opened up a little more about his issues. At that point Selene wanted to help and encourage Jacob to express himself and be happy.
Relationship DescriptionSelene originally disliked Jacob, finding him to be just the entitled, rich asshole she thought she was going to encounter when arriving to the mansion. Jacob was also pretty judgmental of her, knowing she came from a low income family and lived in the 'ghettos'. However after spending more time together they were able to form a bond over common issues and interests they shared. Currently, while Selene still sees Jacob as a bit of a brat, she's slowly growing to love him more as a brother.

Marc LeeUnrequited Crush
Towards Jacob Aumerle
Marc and Jacob never formally met until the whole team had to rescue him from a Spider-bitch aka a Nightmare. Unable to wake Jacob in the real world and defeat the nightmare, Marc used his powers to find Jacob in the Mindscape, where he slayed a monstrous version of him by shouting at him to love himself. This was able to turn dream Jacob human again and wake him up in the real world, where he was being princesses carried by Marc as they escaped the Nightmare's lair. Being carried by such a big, strong, handsome man got Jacob all flustered, and for the first time fell head over heals for another guy. Unfortunately, this is unrequited, due to Marc being in an active relationship already.
