Jared Crane could have been a real hero. He is a capable fighter, a former engineer from the military, has a kind heart and an IQ almost unparalleled among his peers. He had all the key features needed to be the ideal survivor, and a leader for his people. But his mind was crushed when he lost his daughter during the apocalypse.
Ever since his psyché split, he has developed schizophrenic patterns, with notably a dark call to hurt others. So far, he never did, but the call is still there. To avoid problems, he actively makes sure never to be in the position to answer it. But given his unique capabilities, he will have to get out of his comfort zone and risk turning into a monster if he is to prove useful.
