Adam Carr, whose real name is Jeremy Melton, is a recovering alcoholic and the boyfriend of Kate Davies. In 1988, Jeremy was a student at Robert F. Kennedy Middle School where he was a victim of terrible bullying that culminated in a horrifically cruel joke at the Valentine's Day dance when he was a young boy. Being rejected by the most popular school girls during the dance and being framed for sexually assaulting a girl, Jeremy became obsessed with the holiday that had ruined his life and that he'd never gotten to enjoy with another that would return his affections.
Two days after the dance, Jeremy was sent to a reform school. A year later, he lands in juvenile hall. Six months after, he stayed at a mental hospital. Nine years later, going through plastic surgery, Jeremy Melton became Adam Carr with the sole intention of seeking revenge against those primarily responsible for his childhood suffering, plotting to do so on and around the holiday of Valentine's Day so as to coincide with the events that ruined his life.
Jeremy is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Melton, who, according to Detective Leon Vaughn, died in a fire four years back, to which its unknown whether Jeremy was responsible or not.
Some time later, Adam became one of the survivors of the Anti-Hunters.
Jeremy was born in 1975.
In 1988, at the age of 13, in the 6th grade, Jeremy attended the Valentine's Day dance at Robert F. Kennedy Middle School. Jeremy asked each girl to dance with but they harshly rejects him, except for Kat Davies, when he asked Dorothy, she accepted and made out under the bleachers, that's when some boys started mocking them. Dorothy made them believe he sexually assaulted her, causing them to strip him and beat him up in front of the other kids.
On February 16, two days after the dance, Jeremy was sent to reform school.
In 1989, a year later, at the age of 14, he lands in juvenile hall. Six months after, he stayed at a mental hospital.
In 1998, nine years later, he undergoes plastic surgery, taking on a new identity, Adam Carr, at the age of 23, a recovering alcoholic and Kate's boyfriend, the only girl that hadn't been mean to him at the dance.
Jeremy was a lonely, unpopular, and unattractive boy. He was bullied and made fun of by the students at his school. During the Valentine's Day dance, Jeremy asked the most popular girls to dance only to be harshly rejected.
He was made to believe he sexually assaulted Dorothy, the students brutally beats him to the floor. After the dance, he was sent to reform school than to juvenile hall a later followed by staying at mental hospital six months after, this caused him to be mentally unstable. Being wrongfully incarcerated for something he had not truly done, Jeremy grew up to be vindictive against the girls and became obsessed with the holiday, Valentine's Day, that ruined his life.
When Jeremy got plastic surgery, he went by a new identity, Adam Carr, a polite, friendly, caring, and attractive man with the sole intention of seeking revenge against those primarily responsible for his childhood suffering, plotting to do so on and around the holiday of Valentine's Day so as to coincide with the events that ruined his life. Jeremy would even kill others for being in the way without showing any remorse.
Jeremy is remarkably smart, able to plot his murders while using his new identity to make himself look innocent to the point he framed Dorothy for the murders by dressing her up in the Cupid's outfit than shot to clear himself of any suspicion.
Given his cruel childhood, Jeremy held a grudge for the past 10 years, though, Kate Davies was the only girl that wasn't mean to her. When posing as Adam Carr, he became her boyfriend, Jeremy is caring and romantic towards her in return. Due to his murderous nature, Jeremy is very possessive of her, he acts like the "perfect guy" to her since she was the only one nice to him, Jeremy would kills anyone who harasses her or if anyone comes between him and her.
According to Kate Davies, Jeremy/Adam is a recovering alcoholic, implying that somewhere between after his release/escape and before/after going plastic surgery, he became an alcoholic. During a party, Kate saw him drinking and was seen upset he was at it again. His alcohol addiction may stem from his traumatized childhood.
Jeremy's most notable trait is that he gets a nosebleed whenever he kills someone or is under emotional stress.
Adam is a young, handsome, trim man.
He has brown hair and brown eyes.
When he was kid, he was unpopular and wore glasses. After the incident regarding the dance, he got plastic surgery, which confirmed Detective Vaughn's theory.
