About Jonathan Byers

Johnathan had to grow up rather quickly after his father left his family when he was only about eleven and he soon adopted the role of the man of the house and began to watch over and care for his mother and brother. Jonathan instantly blamed himself for his brother’s disappearance, believing that he could have watched over or protected him better. It quickly became his one challenge to find his brother and he goes to every length possible in order to find him.

One thing that singles out Jonathan as an interesting character is his love of photography. He has a 35-mm camera that he absolutely cherishes and he takes quite interesting photos that he develops himself. He’s a rather quiet character that doesn’t say much but has quite a bit on his mind due to his sensitive nature. He can be described as rather mysterious but it adds to his charm and while he may not be popular at school, he’s mature beyond his years and he’s quite aware of it.
