|“||Hey Malsy, miss me? Oh I was going to give up dramatic entrances. So flashy, but what can I say I'm hooked!||„|
|~ CJ's entrance line and most famous quote.|
Calista Jane "CJ" Hook is a major antagonist in the Descendants franchise.
She appears as the secondary antagonist of the Disney Channel animated spin off series Descendants: Wicked World, acting as the main antagonist of its first season and the secondary antagonist in its second season. She is also a mentioned character in the prequel novel Rise of The Isle of The Lost.
She is a sadistic and mischievous prankster who lives out her days indulging in hedonism. She is the daughter of Captain James Hook and younger half-sister of Harry Hook and Harriet Hook, as well as the best friend of Zevon and former "partner" in crime of Freddie Facilier.
She was voiced by Myrna Velasco.
CJ was one of three children belonging to Captain James Hook and was the runt of the family. While admiring her father's adventurous stories she was often ignored or rebuffed by him and felt as though she lived within his shadow. CJ was one of the lesser known VKs growing up and her closest friend in childhood was Freddie Facilier of whom she loved playing pranks on various people with and lived her childhood indulging in hedonism and getting up to large amounts of misbehavior.
CJ was also close to another VK by the name of Zevon the son of Yzma, another outcast in the Isle of The Lost of whom had a similar sadistic sense of humor as her.
It is unknown what CJ's relationship with her siblings was like however they don't appear to be close as none of them mention each other at all throughout the series.
Afer Mal, Evie, Audrey and King Ben ended up on the Isle of The Lost and ventured into Dr. Facilier's shop. CJ hid inside of the stock room while Freddie sweet-talked Ben into allowing her enrollment into Auradon. For the remainder of the school year CJ hid quietly away from the others and began plotting her own ideas of mischief alongside Freddie and performed endless amounts of juvenile and cruel pranks and framed Mal for all of them, turning several of the AKs against her. During the Neon Lights Ball CJ decided to perform her grandest student yet after allowing Freddie a quick solo performance of her own CJ kidnaps Ben before finally revealing herself to the Auradon prep students as the culprit behind all of the pranks on everyone while framing Mal for all of it before dropping Ben from the trap she layed out for him as an end to her act. Noticing Mal's true genuinely good behavior left CJ to quickly belittles Mal and the other VKs for switching their allegiance to that of being good, however CJ ends up accidentally ruining her friendship with Freddie in this instance as the latter grew tired of CJ simply using her as a servant instead of an actual friend and decided to join the original for Auradon VKs into being good. Unphased CJ simply bids the crowd farewell before exiting the scene to explore Auradon for herself.
A few days after the Neon Lights Ball CJ was exploring the river surrounding Auradon before encountering Zevon swimming along the river after having escaped from the Isle. CJ then allowed her old friend onto her boat and was told of his grand plan to take over Auradon. An interested CJ was later offered to join by Zevon who promised her a proper sailing ship once he had succeeded in his plans. A delighted CJ accepted Zevon's offer. Sometime after this she helped Zevon incapacitate Carlos, Jay, Freddie and Jane and placed them inside of Jordan's lamp before eventually venturing off once again promising Zevon she would be back by the time he took over Auradon. After Zevon's plan failed and he was sent back to the Isle CJ was disappointed but somewhat eager to see the performance that the AKs and reformed VKs had in store for the Jewel-bilee and watched on as they performed together.
Rise of The Isle of The Lost
After Zevon's defeat CJ spent her time simply exploring once again without a care in the world, supposedly however she gained a closer relationship with Freddie again.
After Descendants 3 CJ's fate is unclear, although she was already off of the Isle by the time of the barrier to it being destroyed it is unknown how she reacted to the news. The most likely events that could happened for CJ was a reunion with possibly her siblings, or more likely one with Zevon.
CJ is a beautiful, average-heighted, slim girl with long blonde hair with a few braided sections in it with blue and red beads held backwards by two black hairbands. She wears a long red duffle coat with no hood (much like her father's), a white old fashioned ruffled shirt, black shorts with tights showing the Neverland map and black knee-length belted boots with heels.
Much like Zevon she is very over the top and melodramatic with everything she does, while she isn't exactly too malicious she is very malevolent, mischievous and selfish and actually has participated in very villainous deeds like when she pulled various terrible pranks on the AKs and placed the blame on Mal, when she kidnaps Ben (son of Beast) for another one of her pranks and finally when assists Zevon in his rise to power by placing a shrunken Jay, Carlos, Freddie and Jane into the lamp of Jordan's (Daughter Of Genie). She does mostly just do whatever she pleases however and doesn't have any particular goal like Zevon did. CJ is also very intelligent and a very good hider, making it very hard for anyone to ever catch her. She is also obsessed with the sea shown by her constant pirate and sailing references, the apparent smell of rotting kelp she has, her love for sailing and since she is always seen swinging from a sail rope every time she enters or exists a room.
