Basic Information

Character History

Memorable Moments


  • The character's nickname of Jesus is based on his resemblance to the European artistic depiction of the Christian figure of Jesus Christ.
  • In the graphic novels, the character's last name is Monroe. Presumably, it was changed for the series so as not to be confused with Alexandria's Monroe family.
  • For Season 6, Tom Payne wore a fake beard before growing it out for subsequent seasons.
