This week’s character portrait is of Isabelle’s impulsive, slightly unobservant, but well-meaning brother, Jason Clements. As the image on his shirt implies, Jason has a fondness for squirrels. As he once told Nesrin, “When we were little a squirrel used to climb up on my bedroom windowsill and knock until I brought peanuts, then it would come back with berries or leaves in return. For awhile that squirrel was my best friend.” Nowadays Jason is a graduate business management student subletting an apartment from Nesrin with Isabelle. His other interests include puzzles, second-hand items, and video games.
