Early Life

Jim Lepper is a 17-year old teen who lives alone because of the fights between his family and the family of his step-mother. He is the brains of the group of cursed teens. He came to live in the house next-door to Jason. Seeing that Jim was always quiet, Jason tried to talk to him and be friends with him. It wasn’t until later when Jim became friends with Jason. Together they had great times.

The Necklace

Not long after, Jim and a few more of his new friends, Kayla, Liz, and Kage, stumbled upon the scene of what was going to be a fight. During the fight, Mikel threw the Cursed Necklace at Jason, who then threw it to Jim and the others. He was one of those who touched the Necklace. Little did he know that, by touching the necklace, his life would be changed forever. After touching it, there was a bright light, and when it cleared, he was unconscious.

Effects of the Necklace
