  • Complete Monster: Ashton "Ash" Sharpe is just a monstrous as his canon counterpart. A sadistic member of Scott Niles's human trafficking ring, Ash is introduced upset at not being able to rape and murder a man's family, and gleefully picks a family of three when offered to by Scott. Raping the father, then threatening to castrate him if he doesn't choose whether Ash should rape his wife or son next, Ash callously murders him and the latter, leaving the mother to be raped by Scott's daughter after accepting her job of killing her ex-girlfriend and her old friends. Murdering their neighbor and his dog just so he could use his house as "reconnaissance", Ash panics when he follows them to his "body house". Planning on murdering all of them, Ash takes one them hostage. When Mint's ghost arrives, Ash mocks the latter before being overpowered and arrested. While interrogated, it is revealed he had stashed 30 bodies under the house.

That, and her overall Jerkass behavior left them on the cusp of a breakup either way.

  • Jerkass:
    • The C-word is probably the nicest way you could describe Margaret. She’s even worse than she initially appears.
