Evan, HABIT while possessed
Evan Jennings is a major character in the EverymanHYBRID ARG, and later in the series, he is possessed by the main antagonist. He is a part of the EverymanHYBRID nutritional series and is listed as the "EverymanHYBRID Nutritional Correspondent". He is one of the first characters to accept that the cast is being stalked by the real Slender Man.
Evan is also a Bioshock fan. As in "Noah" he is seen with a Bioshock T-shirt, He also was recorded dragging his knife near a Bioshock Xbox 360 case.
He gets his first speaking role in Episode 2, where he explains the proper way to stretch and appears halfway into the episode. After being brutally attacked by the Rake and being infected with "sigma radiation," Evan eventually became possessed by HABIT, and was responsible for the deaths and torture of several characters.
Evan starts "Episode 3: Dreams & Eating" at a super market where he explains how to eat and snack healthy, then sits down with Vincent to explain further.
In Episode 4: Cardio & Outdoor Activities, Evan helps Vincent by watching his time while running with a stopwatch. He speaks at one point, but his audio is distorted and we see "Slender Man". Vincent and Evan then do an activity called "Car Pushing" which they explain as "Slender Man" watches. Vincent then lets Evan explain a doll he was given by a little girl that some man told her to give to him, which is most likely fake.
During the taping of Episode 5: Upper Body & Arms, "the lights in Evan's basement all blow out at once", and they turn them back on shortly afterwards. Evan and Vincent both continue the episode talking about some different machines one can use to exercise and prices while a figure in the dark walks away. Evan tries to play music and then instantly shuts if off, playing it off as being broken, probably again as part of a stunt to incite that "Slender Man" is nearby. The duo conclude the video with talking about the exercise machines.
Episode: "..." starts with random footage cutting around, and this is written with it placed back in order. It appears someone named "Nick" broke into his house and impersonated Slender Man. Vincent convinces him they can use that on their next episode, but Evan is irritated that someone broke into his house. The footage jumps around and shows Evan having a coughing fit in his kitchen. During their conversation, Evan sharpens some knives for an unknown reason.
Evan starts Episode 6: Healthy Eating Habits alongside Jeff. The two go back to the grocery store from Episode 3 and discuss some foods to eat as unhealthy alternatives. In this episode, however, as the episode begins to come to a close, Jeff heads back with Vincent and notice a figure in the back of his car, the two assume it is Dave. When they arrive, it's gone, and the camera is messing up very unusually. Evan never noticed. The group then spots "Slender Man" in the house already, except this time they legitimately don't know where it came from, and head in to investigate the house, on alert. When they get upstairs, they talk with and then turn around to find Slender Man in the nearby room, who shuts the door without touching it. They all burst into the room looking, but find no trace of anyone, and this signals where they are being chased by the real Slender Man. The crew is noticeably startled when they can't find any trace of anyone in the room despite no exits and them being on the second floor of the house.
Episode: "Public Service Announcement" has Vincent (on camera with Evan and Jeff with an unknown cameraman) admitting that the entire time they've been pranking with a fake Slender Man just for fun, but with the break in to Evan's house, they feel they should address this as someone took the joke too far. Evan, understandably angry, states he wants to know who it was, but that if they come clean he'll forgive them, however if they don't and he catches them then "there will be very negative repercussions". At that the three walk off camera. - On a side note, while watching the episode around 1:32 to 1:36, if one looks closely what looks like a tiny orb floats from the right side of the screen and then it seems to disappear into Evan's head just before he finishes his warning. It could be explained by normal debunking methods or it could be a foreshadowing of things to come. It could also be HABIT going into Evan.
Episode: "A day in the life" is the attempt by the crew to have a calm easy episode, this episode featuring Alex, Jeff, Evan, Vincent, Jessa, and Ryan. The group basically goofs around for a while. Nothing of any real substance happens.
Episode: "Our Two Part Special on Sleeping & Dreams: Preview" has the group starting an experiment on sleep deprivation. Evan will be keeping a log of his sleep.
In Episode: " In Episode "Sleep Lab Part 1- Sleep Deprivation", Vincent and Jeff show up to scare Evan as a joke for what they assume he did with the pictures. Evan never really gets an answer as to why they bugged him, but he plays along and they play sword fight.
In Episode "Sleep Lab Part 2 - Evan's Dream Log", Evan records what he ate before going to bed and explains his plan for the night. For the next few days he explains his dreams and what he eats before bed. He notes one night he had a dream with kids having fun, then they started disappearing, until there was none and heard a scream. When he turned, he was in the woods and he heard louder screams. He doesn't make any particular note. He wakes up an hour later and can't sleep. This is the end of the sleep lab.
Episode "- - -" contains video of everyone mostly talking randomly, but at one point Jeff shows up and argues with Vincent. Evan asks what's up, and Jeff mentions a shrine in the back room. Vincent tries to tell him it was Alex and that it can just be played off, except Jeff argues that he wasn't home during the time, and Jeff is getting angry and scared as to why now they're getting these weird instances. Vincent argues they can't let whoever is bugging them win, as it's a sign that they get their way. Jeff admits he loves the EverymanHYBRID project, but the creepy junk happening around them isn't worth it. Evan points out at this point nothing can be done, and Vincent jumps on that argument and tells Jeff they can only fight against him by keeping going. Vincent then demands the camera be shut off. Later the footage of them talking comes back, and Vincent promises if they get another occurrence they'll stop. Evan then continues and hints at the idea that he believes that it really is Slender Man this time.
Episode "Slushpops and Surprises" contains the trio talking once more, and they go upstairs for some 'slushpops', where Vincent finds a note with an odd black cross on it, and the note says "W 074 41 097". They dismiss it and the video stops and you hear breathing along with white on black words that say "CENTER THE TRAGIC HERO AND HIS UNATTAINABLE COMPANION. ]]"
Episode 7: "Self Defense (Plus a message to all HYBRIDS)" starts with Vincent and Evan showing self defense lessons with Jeff playing cameraman. They talk about Yoga as well.
Episode "Joke's Over" contains Evan and Vincent introducing the video as they had difficulties. The video itself shows the group giving some hiking tips when Slender Man shows up. Despite Evan's attack, he gets away, and they find suspended garbage bags that appear to be filled with blood and dead animals. Evan bursts into hysterical laughter. Later that evening Vincent admits that Jeff has gone missing of his own accord, and that when they called Jessa (hoping she'd know where he is), she didn't pick up.
Episode "Jeff" has Evan and Vincent show up at Jeff's house to speak with Alex, Jeff's brother. For some reason the door opens showing Slender Man in the hallway, then the video cuts back and Alex answers the door. Neither Evan nor Vincent bring this up, so it's entirely possible they're fully unaware it occurred. At the time they talk to Alex, he states the last time that he spoke to his brother was a full three days ago. He also seems to no longer be responding to his phone. Alex is under the assumption Jessa broke up with him due to her not contacting Jeff period. Alex permits the duo to peruse Jeff's things in hopes they may hold clues to his whereabouts. They find a picture, but it doesn't seem to be too helpful, however Evan locates a USB drive in Jeff's room on top of the book "House of Leaves". and inside the book is a card that says "I'm onto something" along with a paragraph circled that says "Why did God create a dual universe? So he might say 'Be not like me. I am alone.' And it might be heard."
Episode ". -" Has Jeff speak to an old woman regarding Dr. Corenthal, probably in regards to the medical records he found in the previous episode. Meanwhile Evan seems to be scouting through Jeff's notebook. He notes to the lady that one of the patients may have been nicknamed "HABIT". The lady becomes agitated with the questioning, and the rest of the imagery is either nonsensical (in that it is unexplainable in its nature) or overplayed with music.
Episode "78of76.avi" seems to be the group breaking into an abandoned building from episode "A day in the life". It is apparent that it is dark and covered in sand, with waves of water pushing in. What importance this has is uncertain.
Episode "Reunion" has the group once again reunited. Jeff states he'll go over what he found later, but first the guys want to show the viewers something important. Vincent admits that it is weird that Jeff found confidential records in a burned out abandoned building. Vincent continues to admit the whole group went to said building. They found a weird note and some odd stuff happens, which Vincent "Doesn't want to jump to conclusions on", which angers Evan who believes that this isn't a prank. The camera cuts out to the group in a flashback inside the building. In there Jeff admits he never found out exactly how the fire started. Jeff then admits the papers were found in one of the lockers, which confuses the rest of the group. Vincent references the room looking a lot like Silent Hill, and that the records were here. During their visit in this room Slender Man is clearly watching them, but they never notice. They locate a new paper that was handwritten. It appears to be an apology letter of some sort. When they leave the room, Vincent lowers his camera and holds it at his side, which catches video of The Operator standing in the open looking at them. Evan adds a section at the end of the video where he states how frustrated his is with his friends at the moment and that he believes they should be doing something about this now, and he plans to kill Slender Man whom he believes is real.
In the episode "Ashen Waste", Evan is the show to be the first person to "officially" attempt to assault Slender Man. The interaction causes severe problems for him physically and mentally.
Episode "Cops checked no body" starts with the group in a car with "Jessie", a woman they know from the internet. Jeff notes that they keep getting cards that say "Greetings from the land of Ashen Wastes" and that Jessa is still missing. Evan attempts to explain their situation to Jessie about what's going on as she doesn't know anything about their situation, and Jessie notes she is rather concerned as to Jessa just being missing. They all say they're hoping that Jessa is where they are headed. Vincent notes that people are telling them that videos are on their YouTube profile channel, yet they note the videos aren't there (referencing the fact that some videos on their channel appear invisible to them). They also note that Damsel is potentially behind their problem, as the basement shrine had "Canyouseethewords" everywhere, and they note that, unlike in the sleep lab, they no longer believe it was Alex, but rather believe it is their Slender Stalker or Damsel. They also go over the school incident from the previous episode, and speak about a Dr. Corenthal. Jessie admits that her uncle's last name is Corenthal. The group shows interest in the topic, but Jessie didn't know him well, and that her uncle was estranged. The group stops at a location where there is a lot of old wreckage that may have happened in a fire. Evan and Jessie are talking back at the car, when they hear Vincent tell them they have to run. The video cuts out.
In ":D" it appears that HABIT controlled Evan into killing Jeff.
In the TribeTwelve video DEUS EX MACHINA, a figure resembling Evan appears with his back turned to the camera, holding an axe and wearing his easily identified cap. He stuck out his tongue, which appeared unusually long and black. Firebrand, a TT proxy, hinted that Evan/HABIT was responsible for severing his connection with Slender Man, but how he could have done so is unknown. Many viewers of the video recognized the figure as being Evan, even Noah Maxwell.
He appears again, while still being controlled by HABIT, in Severance, where he transport Noah into his house after Noah reads the letter sent by HABIT. Later on, Noah is somehow transported into the Candleverse in Bridge to Nowhere and he sends him back to his house in Florida.
