Name: Jakob Everett Weiß (Prefers Jack)
Job: School Nurse
Age: 48 (Looks about 18)
Height/Weight: 5’11” / 140 lbs.
Personality: Although he likes punk music and style, Jack has never been one for the rage or hatred. He was an angry youth, but at heart, he’s always been gentle soul. In school he is generally calm, kind, perceptive and caring, although with an acerbic edge. He can be very sarcastic and likes to argue simply for the sake of argument. When he gets drunk it multiplies his personality sevenfold, and he gets much more argumentative, louder, and he becomes highly strung. He loves having the last word. He always puts others’ safety before his own.
History: Born to a German father and American mother, his father was a werewolf when he met Jack’s human mother. They met while she was on a hiking trip and hit it off. She abandoned life at home and moved to Nachtwald, raising Jack in a happy mixed family home. He vacationed in the US with his mother and even met her family, although their grandson’s wolfish traits were a pretty huge shock. Jack had a happy home life. He trained as a gymnast from a young age. His father was the one who introduced him to rock and punk, even trying to teach Jack to play an instrument, although they found out pretty soon that Jack was tone deaf, so he stuck to gymnastics.
He decided to go into medicine when his mother died. He was sixteen when she was caught in an avalanche hiking with some other friends. At that point he realized the frailty of life, and decided to spend some time living with his human relatives, giving up his goals in gymnastics. Although it meant shaving his ears, wearing his hair long and adopting a near-constant trench coat, (or tucking his tail into his scrubs which generally got him odd looks.) It was only once he was in college that he decided to become a nurse instead of a doctor, favoring the type of care nurses tended to give. He spent a little time in the US in the eighties living with an attractive Punk Rocker named Aiden but eventually he decided to move home to Nachtwald.
He was surprised to find out once he returned, that his mother had survived as a ghost and was now younger than he was, but once his father explained to him that he didn’t want Jack to come home and forgo everything he had worked for just because she was still around, he forgave him. At that time Jack decided to apply for the newly open position as School Nurse at Vlad Tepesh High, and he stayed there ever since. He became assistant to the gymnastics coach when the position opened. After several years Jack’s mom encouraged his father to move on, and he eventually did so, marrying another werewolf who had lost her spouse. The child of this union is 14 year old Sasha, who Jack spoils immensely.
Likes: Punk rock music and style, sweet candies and pastries, getting drunk, taking care of people.
Dislikes: Slimy things, ketchup, looking younger than he is. He hates extremes of weather, both cold and hot, preferring the temperate middle.
Additional Facts: Gnaws on his lower lip often; tends to ramble on incoherently when nervous. Fears that he’ll never feel at home, no matter where it is. He’s also irrationally afraid of spiders. He’s gay. There’s an ongoing joke by older girls at the school who inevitably taunt a new girl who has a crush until they find out he’s unattainable.
