She's also Pandora, the mysterious figure tormenting various students for monetary gains. She gets caught and sent to prison but is eventually released and starts dating Max. Toward Katherine, albeit low-key. Don't You Dare Pity Me! Her whole motivation for becoming Pandora was to steal enough money to maintain her formerly lavish lifestyle after her father's company went bankrupt, specifically because she wanted to avoid experiencing this trope from anyone else.

She turns up occasionally along with Hope and both of them volunteer at Cybersmile together. Asher Rollins A popular student at the school. He was dating Chelsea but then kissed Hope at a beach party and blamed her. He started cyber-bullying Hope and encouraging others to do the same but he stopped when Chelsea and Hope spoke to the principal and the police got involved.

So very, very, very , VERY much. It runs in the family. Gets this treatment from his father during the quest where you, Payton and Nishan are working for Mr. Rollins' baking company; specifically, Asher is placed as assistant to the Board of Directors a post he clearly doesn't like since he doesn't want to be stuck in a desk job , while Nishan is promoted to Asher's previous post of kitchen manager as a form of blackmail from Mr. Rollins, with the alternative being lawsuits against your group for attempting to sabotage the cookie recipe formula he's conscripted from Payton and Nishan.

He has a lot of cats at home. Has one with Calvin. They teach it to you once they both join your school. He's not above pranking people. Gets even more hilarious when teamed up with Calvin.

He is also the only character whose full name is regularly shown. During a brief scene in one quest, Jack flirts with Autumn, then with your main character when the latter comes to Autumn's rescue.
