Name:Jackson Whittemore
Birthdate:Jun 15
Location:Monterey, California, United States of America

Jackson Whittemore was the top athlete at Beacon Hills High School and was in a long term relationship with Lydia Martin. He was born on June 15, 1995. His birthday is the day after his parents, Gordon and Margaret Miller, were killed in a car accident. His mother was apparently kept on life support long enough for doctors to deliver Jackson via c-section.

Jackson was then adopted by attorney David Whittemore and his wife. His father says his son hasn't said "I love you" since learning he was adopted and that the circumstances of his parentage cause the teen to labor under self-imposed unrealistic expectations. Jackson is destined to get a large insurance settlement connected to his bio-parents's death when he turns 18. He was the former captain of the Beacon Hills lacrosse team. He has a competitive and aggressive nature, which shows through hostility towards people who best him and he wants to make others proud of him. Despite his abrasive personality, he cares about his friends and dislikes hurting them. He is insecure about his adoption and the fact that he does not know his real parents, leading him to be unable to see his adoptive parents as his true mother and father. His birth mother had died on June 14 while pregnant, meaning he had been pulled out of his dead mother's womb.

Though Derek gives Jackson the bite, his body rejected it and Jackson instead became the Kanima, a murderous shapeshifting creature that is a weapon of vengeance. The Kanima seeks a master who wishes to exact revenge on others to control it, revealing that as the Kanima, Jackson's every move was controlled by someone else. Jackson did not know that he was the Kanima, nor did the Kanima side of him know that it was Jackson. It was revealed that he became the Kanima because he was an orphan, meaning he lacked an identity. He was able be saved by a person with whom he shared a true bond; in Jackson's case, this person was Lydia. Through Lydia's selflessness, Jackson healed and finally became a werewolf — however, with blue eyes rather than gold. Lydia revealed that Jackson was trained by Derek to control his werewolf powers and then later moved to London.

Jackson moved to England where he was enrolled in the prestigious boarding school, Eton College. It was a fresh start for the family after the nightmare Jackson went through turning into the giant homicidal lizard. It was there he met Kodie Finlay, discovering he was a very young wolf freshly bitten. Jackson somewhat took the guy under his wing, helping him with controlling his wolf tendencies and in the process, told him all about the pack in Beacon Hills, Lydia having kept him up to speed one everything going on via Facebook and Skype. Jackson has secretly harboured confusion over his sexuality, and his relationship with Lydia could be defined somewhat as him having a beard to keep up the perfect persona that came with being the most popular guy in school and wanting to please his adoptive parents. He does love Lydia and does cherish the connection he had with her, but he doesn't believe now he was ever truly in love with her, and it was more just trying to do what was expected of him.

In London, Jackson came out to his parents, though even that had somewhat of a confused air to it. His mind sometimes feels scrambled after the whole transforming into the kanima transforming into a werewolf thing. If he is honest with himself, he doesn't really know who he is right now and he's searching. What he does know is that he's not completely straight and doesn't want to entirely define his sexuality until he's sure inside that he's in love with a guy, and the only way to do that for him is to experience a real, healthy relationship... the stumbling block is finding someone he can be honest and true with, and who accepts the fact he's a werewolf. He did, however, sleep with Kodie and took his virginity, which helped seal the deal that he definitely was into guys on some level, though he's still figuring out exactly what that is.

For now, he is focusing on graduating high school, and trying to make sure he doesn't accidentally hurt anyone during his transformations. He missed everyone at Beacon Hills, especially best friend, Danny, but there is no way he's admitting that out loud. His relationship with his parents is better, and he is opening up more to them, but he knows there is still a long way to go, and despite everything, he will always still be a honest asshole at heart. His biggest stumbling block is how much he misses Beacon Hills, and how he's finding himself yearning to be back there and part of the pack too, though for now, he's stuck in England not sure he should even tell anyone how he feels.
