Biography Edit

Early life Edit

Jennifer used to be a cheerful little girl and a talented gardener as she won an award for the best roses when she was only nine. Her mother was proud, but her father saw her as a disappointment that she was not the son he wanted.

After her father returned from a war in Ethopia with Mussolini's troops, he underwent treatment for his PTSD with Phenoxyl which creates memory loss of a traumatic events. Mr. Felton used it to his advantage on his daughter, making her forget that she was Jennifer and making her in to a son that he wanted with the influence phenoxyl-induced mesmerism sessions and hormonal supplements.

Later yearsEdit

As Richard, he married Arianna Gallo through an arranged wedding from their parents and adopted a young girl named Celeste. Watching Celeste growing up triggered Richard's memories, reminding him of everything his father didn't let him to be, and caused Jennifer's reawakening.

Events of Tormented FathersEdit

Jennifer was first seen in a photograph Rosemary assumed to be of a young Celeste. She's properly introduced after the appearance of the Red Nun caused horror-struck Richard to run away, allowing Jennifer to take control. She then retreats to the loft, where Rosemary spotted her hiding among the mannequins. After Rosemary takes the picture of Arianna and Celeste, angered Jennifer chases her, causing Rosemary to trip and fall down from the loft. Jennifer then takes Rosemary into the room nehind the dining room where the Red Nun can't find them.

After Rosemary wakes up, Jennifer notes how Rosemary looks like the wanted woman from the TV report. She also warns Rosemary about not touching her things and gives her a hint about the door behind the fireplace, where she can find what she's looking for. It enrages Jennifer when Rosemary takes the batteries from her remote control and she attacks her with a hammer.

After falling down into the wine cellar, Rosemary finds Jennifer's wall of memories along with her birth certificate, where she realises the truth about Felton's identity. Jennifer then appears and chases Rosemary with a nail gun.

Later when Rosemary tries to escape after being drugged by Gloria, Jennifer re-appears and knocks her out and are both taken by Gloria to a mesmerism session, where Jennifer, as Richard, questions Rosemary's real motives.

In a dream-like sequence, Jennifer is seen swinging while slowly fading away in the distance. As both personalities slowly start to merge, Richard regains the memories of his childhood and Jennifer calls Celeste "my daughter." Unfortunately, angered Gloria interferes and cuts off Felton's tongue. Under the influence of phenoxyl Jennifer is subdued once again and Richard is then manipulated by Gloria to burn down the house with himself and Rosemary in it. However Rosemary manages to free herself and sets Felton on fire. When Rosemary wakes up, she sees Jennifer's burnt body and contemplates her tragic fate, blaming Felton's father for ruining his daughter's life.

Personality Edit

Despite being in her 50s, Jennifer speaks in an unusually young feminine voice resembling Celeste's. She seems to be mentally stuck in her childhood years, as she calls for her parents as if they were alive. Jennifer seems to still have sanity left when she apologized to Rosemary about her behavior, but she quickly becomes hostile if Rosemary takes something from her or tries to attack her and refers to her other personality as "Richard" or "Felton" and is aware of his actions, as she recognizes Rosemary and is able to answer her questions about the door Richard hid. But the seems to be extremely possessive of her belongings, as Rosemary finds out when she touches a photograph that belongs to her and the TV remote.

Jennifer is heard crying while looking at herself in the mirror. She uses lipstick to make herself look more feminine and wears a wig that covers her face completely. It is implied she hates looking at her face, as it reminds her she's not the girl she once was. And as Richard, she often mistakes the photographs of Celeste for old pictures of herself, and she's able to tell them apart only when her mind is clear.

Jennifer has a deep hatred for the Red Nun and is terrified of her, as she turned Richard against her. Although she is aware that Gloria is responsible for Richard's mesmerism sessions, it's unclear if she knows about her real identity.
