Jacqueline Hyde

“Jacqueline Hyde, get both your selves over here!”
— Carmen, Where in Time season 2 episode 7

“At school they taught me how to be so pure in thought and word and deed
They didn’t quite succeed
For everything I long to do, no matter when or where or who
Has one thing in common too
It’s a... it’s a... it’s a... it’s a... it’s a sin”
— Pet Shop Boys, “It‘s a Sin”

"Jacqueline is sweet and soft-spoken; Hyde's berserk personality loves to cause catastrophes. Jacqueline's dueling dual personalities keep Acme agents on their toes, making her Carmen’s ultimate double agent!"
Where in Time game manual

((I've loved Carmen since I was about three and watched the PBS game shows. My favorite entry in the franchise, however, is Where on Earth. I've never quite let up on my Carmen fandom, and I run F**k Yeah Carmen Sandiego on Tumblr. I am, incidentally, very gay and very trans.

I chose Jacqueline Hyde partly because she's amusing, and partly because I for some reason had a crush on her as a child. And, in small part, because as someone who is both the world's biggest bitch and the world's biggest sweetheart, I can relate to the whole duality thing. Though unlike Jacqueline, I don't actually have dissociative identity disorder...))

Random tidbits:
  • Jacqueline is pan, though she doesn't realize it as she's never thought about it. Hyde is too busy wreaking and enjoying chaos to be attracted to anyone.
  • Jacqueline's favorite song is Take a Chance on Me by ABBA.
  • Hyde developed a year prior to Jacqueline's meeting Carmen, following a car accident (see this post).
  • Jacqueline has a deeply unsettling recurring dream in which she glows red and is horribly mean, with no moral compass at all. She's not sure what, if anything, it means...

Character Background
Jacqueline was a Catholic schoolgirl in the 1970s Midwest, suffering from an existential case of ennui, when she crossed paths with Carmen, on her way back to the present following a heist in the 19th century. Unbeknownst to her (though known all too well to everyone else), she also hosts an alternate personality, Hyde. Hyde, meanwhile, is perfectly aware of Jacqueline, whom she finds loathsome for her more goody-goody moments.
Personality
Jacqueline is saccharine-sweet by nature, and although her moralistic schooling has been partially undone by Carmen, she is sometimes troubled by breaking the seventh commandment. But even if Hyde isn't there to override her qualms, she usually overcomes them by reason of her loyalty to Carmen and her VILE friends. Besides, she likes to look at pretty things. In summary, she's lawful neutral.

Hyde, on the other hand, is pure chaotic evil, with no moral qualms about thievery at all. For her, stealing for Carmen is the perfect opportunity to wreak as much havoc as possible.
Aspirations
Jacqueline is driven by a desire for belonging and more than a bit of hedonism. Hyde is pure hedonism - specifically, hedonism by means of chaos - and a heavy dose of sadism.
