Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew up… outside the norms of society. Jason, who was born with severe physical deformities, was home-schooled and sheltered by his overprotective mother, Pamela, who was a cook at Camp Crystal Lake.

Living… at Crystal Lake, albeit years after his supposed death. When Jason was still young, he allegedly drowned during a nighttime swim. His mother always blamed the negligent camp counselors who she said did not look after him properly.

Profession… mass murderer. Jason seems to have been put on earth for a single purpose: to kill, murder, and maim anyone who gets near Camp Crystal Lake.

Interests… his mother. Jason’s adoration for Pamela has, upon her death, turned into something akin to worship. Throughout his childhood, she was the only person to show him anything close to love or affection. Today, he has constructed a shrine to her in the outskirts of the camp.

Challenge… keeping Camp Crystal Lake empty. Jason has seemingly vowed to continue his mother’s mission to keep the camp closed.

Personality… none. Jason is a blank, murderous cipher, nothing more than a killing machine. He stalks the camp with his trademark machete and hockey mask, striking fear into anyone who dares cross him.
