Nemesis (Why): Adopted Brother Wayne. Wayne is the biological son of his parents and desperately wants his family restored. Wayne is pure goodness and kindness which Jésus resents. He also resents that Wayne married an African American woman thus reducing his White privilege, a privilege he works everyday to claim… though he is not White.

Definitely believes in pulling yourself by your own bootstraps and does not take kindly to people who use excuses to not succeed. Lives with four roommates in a two-bedroom house.

Relate character to another movie persona: Jack Mcfarland from Will & Grace. The comic foil of the story, Jésus' flamboyant and obnoxious antics tend to loosen up heavy moments within the show, but his own background punches an equally heavy punch of pathos
