Jasper is 24 years old. His younger sister, Serena is 18.

When Serena was 12, she attempted suicide after being bullied by a group of kids. The ringleader of the group was a girl named Nora. Jasper was devastated and felt like a failure because he didn't protect/notice the signs she was going to attempt.

Years later, Jasper finds out that Serena and Nora are talking and texting each other.

Enraged, he tell Serena to stop and puts a tracking device on her phone. He even goes as far as punching Nora in the face- giving her a black eye.

Well I can see why he was angry but he should have talked to his sister and find out why she was talking to that person

[c=666666]Not a bad person, he should just have thought more about it before he acted, and communicated with his sister.[/c]

Is he a bad person? He's behaving in a controlling and even violent manner not so much in order to protect Serena — who is an adult and can make her own decisions about whom to associate with — as to assuage his own guilt (or bruised ego). I don't know that that makes him bad in and of itself; it suggests that he's self-involved and more concerned with how the situation affected him than Serena.
