Jason was a member of the Millers as Jason Carrington. He is part of The Dawsons as he swore allegience to them and part of The Silverstone Family because he is married to Payton Silverstone and has three children with her. Jason later becomes a leader of The Millers 2.0 when May dies. Jason belongs to The Carrington Family by birth.
Jason was born as a third child in 1789 to a wealthy family living in Boston, Illinois. His father was a rich merchant, his mother was a housewife who learned Jason how to write and read, uncommon for that time. He had a relative easy childhood, living a priviledged life growing up with his siblings. Around the age of 16, he fell in love and was romatically involved with Beth Raleigh, the daughter from the neighbouring estate. (see more : Beth and Jason)
When he was 23 he joined the army to fight the 1812-war, to get away from his father who was now even more dissapointed in his son's faillure. During the war, he almost died on the battlefield by a gunshot upper torso. He was saved by a mysterious woman, who turned him into a vampire. The two soon fell in love and began an affair (see more : Jason and May)
After finding out May is having an affair with his brother, Jason travels back to his hometown He arrives at a field where he used to play as a kid, which is where he attacks Beth's brother, and eventually Beth herself. He kills the brother but spares her. He leaves when he realises the horror he has created, abandoning Beth who is near dying. His memories of the event then get erased by May, but Jason does remember May's adultry and so he packs up his stuff and leaves The Millers.
Jason DawsonEditHe meets a young couple of vampires while wondering in the south. Originally, he plans on only staying with them for a few days. When Jason learns a whole new way of living from them, he decides to stay longer. After travelling with them for a while, he gets asked by James Dawson to join them. He accepts the invitation, and also changes his name to Dawson to portray his allegiance and to leave behind part of his past he wishes to forget. They travel from place to place, never staying longer than 5 years in one town.
When other vampires join, Jason makes friends with them. He gets along great with Seth Dawson, the vampire who joined after him. They have similar views of the world and they can talk to one another about a lot of things. (see more : Jason and Seth). Jason and Seth then meet Alyssa Miller, a free-spirited vampire, on one of their hunts. They introduce her to James, who agrees to let Alyssa stick around, despite her diet issues. Jason and Alyssa then become close friends along with Seth. (see more : Jason and Alyssa).
It is through Alyssa that two new members, Alyson and Dylan, join in 1887. She agreed to turn them, but a dispute between Alyssa and Alyson soon causes for friction, and Alyssa opts to leave the Dawsons. Jason then finds out she has another group that she is a part of, and he asks her about it. Alyssa replies saying she is a member of The Millers, but hides the fact that May Miller, Jason's former girlfriend, is her mother. In Alyssa's abscence, he digs further into her past and he finds out she was born in 1813, the year he left the Millers.
In the early 20th century, Jason and the rest of The Dawsons move to Waterfall Creek, a town they have helped found several decades ago. When the world is divided by war, Jason briefly considers enlisting, but Elisabeth and James conclude that they had too little documentation to make his identity look believable. During the interbellum, the Dawsons welcome two new members, Lauren and Nate. He helps them transition into vampirism along with Dylan. . Jason inlists in the second world war, and he relocates to Europe for a while, where he is considered a hero among the other soldiers for his bravery, strength and determination.
When he returns he finds James struggling with the size of their family. Jason tries to assist James in managing their group. He often goes scouting to find a fitted residence for them, just like he did when he and Seth travelled to Waterfall Creek earlier than the other members to check the new perimeter in Season One.
In the 1980's Jason decides to test his suspicion about Alyssa by doing a genetic PCR-test, which concludes they are related but she is not his daughter, leaving him to conclude she is his niece. One night in Vegas he tells her what he found out, and the two of them agree that this doesn't change anything about their friendship, which has been doing on for over 150 years.
In the late 20th century the Dawsons all reside in Chicago, where Jason works in an auto-repair shop.
When his brother and Claire develop a strong connection, Jason is shocked that this has unfolded in front of his own eyes, but he was merely too distacted with awaiting his punishment. He then talks to Payton about Claire and Seth's relationship, and the two of them talk about their romantic history with eachother. That night he finds himself falling asleep and dreaming of Payton.
Payton and Jason start talking every now and then at the lunchtable or in class. Jason also tries his best to socialize with the other humans. He decides to stick with the ones he knows through Payton and Claire because he enjoys the fact that at least some people at the table know he's different than most teenagers. He also finds out Mike, Mila, Justin and Katie don't care if he acts strangely, because they're used to it from Payton and Claire.
In the spring of 2008, Jason finds out Alyssa is in trouble in Paris. He decides to go despite the fact that he would be seen as a fugitive of The Anconi, hoping they have simply pardoned him. He learns this is not the case, and that they were simply waiting for him to be in a disadvantage as they corner him on the streets of Paris. When they let Aria attack him and stand by, Jason realises this is no common execution of the law but a take-out to send a message. What Jason doesn't realise is that Seth has been following him to prevent just that. When Payton shows up at the scene a few minutes later, Jason is surprised but also motivated not to die just yet seeing as that would put the lives in danger of two people he cares about and he doesn't want that.
When Payton kills two vampires for him, she tells him she owed him for saving her sister. The next moment however, Jason watches as Payton gets severely injured by the remaining vampire. When Seth takes him out, Jason carries Payton to Alyson and Dylan's appartment. There she tells him he has made her realise the difference between good and bad vampires. As they share a moment on the terrace, Jason first realises his romantic feelings for her.
While Jason tries to take care of Payton he uncovers Payton is someone who doesn't like to be taken care of. He tries not to worry about her too much, but things aren't always that easy. When Payton suggests they go see the Eiffel Tower while they're in Paris, Jason gains hope that she has feelings for him too. At the Eiffel tour Jason admits to Payton that he has become very fond of her and that he does see her as his friend. Payton senses there is more to Jason's emotions than he is showing, and in an embrace she tells him she trusts him, and she needs him.
School starts again soon enoguh, and when they find each other in a moment of spare time Jason asks Payton if he can be really honest with her. The past couple of days have been very hard on him as he has been struggling with his true feelings for the young witch. He wanted to tell her, but he was scared it might scare her off and push her away. After all his efforts to make her like him that would be the last thing that he wanted. But when he told her at the spot where Payton usually takes some time for herself that he had feelings for her, he was in for a surprise. She told him that she already knew, because she was an empath and that she didn't mind. That she actually had been developing these feelings herself. As he realizes what she just told him he reaches for her waist and they share their first kiss.
They announce their friends they are together but hours later, Jason gets taken away to the The Anconi Compound to face trial for killing the Vampires in Paris and James' siblings. He gets tortured for about a month but finally reunites with Payton on Christmas eve on the beach in Honduras. The rest of the school year he still tries to show her that she can rely on him and that he would never hurt her. Sometimes being a little overprotective, but always with the best intentions. When he attends prom with her and that night he once again feels how much he has grown to care about her. When Claire gets kidnapped by his brother he feels a lot of guilt, but he isn't able to tell anyone about his brother besides Payton. She understands and doesn't blame him, but this makes things harder on Jason, because he doesn't know whether or not he should feel responsible for what happened.}}
Jason is very protective and a little bit stubborn. He always thinks what he thinks is best, but sometimes he is wrong about that. His family is the most important thing to him and he will always want to do what is best for them. He is also quite ambitious and smart. That is also why he decided to open the club, because it was one of his many ambitions. He is a little bit old fashioned because of the age he was born in and he is very romantic. Always trying to make his wife feel special.
Jason, like some other vampires, has a limited power linked to the way he died as a human. However, it is assumed that May might have enhanced it in some way to give her lover more status. Jason lost the ability to use this power when he was in captivity at the Anconi.
- Supernatural hearing: Jason can hear far better than humans. He is said to be able to recognize Payton's voice in a crowd of a thousand people. He also hears her heartbeat in a crowd. Like all vampires he can generally detect sounds at different frequencies.
- Supernatural speed: Jason can run faster then humans. He is said to be the second-fastest runner of the Dawson family aside from Seth.
- Pyrokinesis (limited): Being killed by a firearm, Jason could create little fire-balls in his hand and steer them to a target. It is unknown if his son's natural ability to use pyrokinesis is linked to it.
Jason has a talent for playing the piano. He is also good with words and writing although he isn't profond of this talent. He has a lot of leadership-qualities and he is a good hunter.
