Jason grew up with BJ┬áin New London and the two dated in their teens before Jason came out. The news hurt BJ and the two didn’t talk again until years later during college.

Jason was born to a family of Curs’t magicians; one of the few families who are allowed to practice these mostly forbidden magics. Jason studied Incantare and Alchemy in college– he makes a hell of a margarita. Going back generations, Welling men became prison guards in the only New London prison. Jason initially joined their ranks only to leave in recent months.

He reconnected with BJ after a blind date with her roommate, Josh.
