It's an aberration I tell ya!

Welcome to the Aberration Blog Hop!
Hosted by the wonderful Lisa Regan!

In celebration of the release of her second novel, Aberration, Lisa Regan is hosting The Aberration Blog Hop:  Finding the Most Aberrant Characters. 

In Aberration, FBI profiler, Kassidy Bishop is on the hunt for serial killer who is an aberration—a freak—even among serial killers. 

Before we get started, let’s take a look at the definition of aberration:

Definition of ABERRATION
1 : the fact or an instance of deviating or being aberrant especially from a moral standard or normal state
2 : unsoundness or disorder of the mind
3 : an aberrant individual
From the Merriam Webster Online Dictionary

For the purposes of this hop,  I'm going to share the most aberrant character I've ever had the pleasure (or displeasure) of writing:
Robert Jacobs.
He's the villain in Death of a Waterfall. He's also Teghan's father.
What makes him so aberrant, you ask? His questionable morals and his complete lack of a conscience.
Allow me to share with you...

          Rob paced in his den, his stomach in knots over what he was about to do, but he knew he had no other choice. His back was against the wall. "Jim, its Rob. I need your help," he said before Jim even had a chance to say hello.
"You sound worried. What's going on?" Jim asked.
"I don't want to get into it, but I need you to find me a doctor."
"A doctor? What the hell for?"
"It's not for me. It's for Teghan."
"Is she okay?"
Rob sighed. He knew this wasn't going to be easy, that Jim would ask a hundred questions. "She's fine."
"So why does she need a doctor?"
"Look, Jim, I can't explain it. In fact, the less you know the better. I just need you to find me a doctor who's willing to do something a little..." he paused searching for the right word, "questionable."
