Early life

He has a penchant for stealing things, which kept him busy at home on the Isle of the Lost. In Auradon, he puts his athleticism to good use as a star player on the tourney team. Through tourney, he is exposed to teamwork for the first time and helps the other villain kids understand its value in executing their plan.

Isle of the Lost


Powers & Abilities

Jay, being son of Jafar, Jay possesses the following powers:

  • Magic: Descended from his father, Jay has the ability to manipulate supernatural forces in order to achieve any effect he desires, he is skilled in untamed magic.
    • Spell Casting: Jay has the ability to cast spells, to transforming people into objects, starting fires, summoning ghosts, and resurrecting deceased people.
    • Potion Making: Jay has the ability to brew potions, elixirs, and tonics in a cauldron.


He was sent to Auradon to retrieve the wand of the Fairy Godmother with his friends to break down the barrier around the Isle of the Lost to set the villains free and for them to take over Auradon. When they arrived at Auradon, he and Carlos were fighting over a blanket and he noticed Audrey. He then decided to flirt with her. Later when they were in the museum he tried to get the wand by foolishly reaching his hand out to grab the wand even though there was a force field around Fairy Godmother's wand, despite Mal shouting at him to not put his hand near the force field. He did anyways, which set off a siren signaling the museum guard to wake up and investigate the intrusion and what was the cause of the siren going off. The villain kids were then forced to make a run for it but Carlos lied on the phone to security telling them it was a malfunction in the brethren circuit and the siren was then turned off making the guard return to his working post where he was original.

Carlos was then called by Mal to hurry up and he haughtily said in a moody sarcastic voice "You're welcome," and the kids ran back to the school with Mal complaining to Jay "Way to go, Jay. Now we have to go to school tomorrow." The next day he joined the tourney team with Carlos, and when he started tourney he became the best tourney player of the team. He had the ability to knock other players down and dodge them, even though he was just a beginner. In the end, Coach Jenkins was extremely impressed with him and asked to sit down with him later on, to talk about the rules of the game. Even though he showed his dislike of rules by yelling about how great he was at tourney, Coach Jenkins was very impressed with him nonetheless. He was very protective over Evie when she was bullied by Chad later on in the movie. He also confronted Maleficent by trying to take her scepter, but Mal finally defeated Maleficent who turned into a lizard. He dances with the others at the end of the movie and he especially danced with Audrey. 

Wicked World

Jay returns in the animated short series, voiced by Booboo Stewart, who also portrayed him in the live-action film.

He first appears in "Careful What You Wish For" after stealing Jordan's lamp. He arrives at Mal's tent and gives her the lamp before fleeing the scene. He is later seen again in "Spirit Day" where he accidentally becomes a dog thanks to a spell cast Mal by mistake. In this state, Carlos takes advantage of this by getting Jay to do a couple of dog tricks and takes pictures. But after he is changed back, Jay proceeds to get his own back on Carlos and chases after him. Jay and Carlos attend the Neon Lights Ball, but show up late after they were carpet jacked by Captain Hook's daughter, CJ Hook.
