|~ Jeff the Killer's most famous quote.|
Jeffrey Woods, also more commonly known as Jeff the Killer, is the titular villainous protagonist of the Creepypasta short story of the same name by the brother of GameFuelTv. He is a teenage boy who loses his sanity and becomes a serial killer to satisfy his homicidal urges.
Jeff has extremely pale skin and burnt off eyelids, giving him a more ghostly appearance. Jeff later got his most distinctive trait, the smile that he had carved into his face with a knife. His build is commonly described as slim but fit at the same time and reaching a height of around 5 to 6 feet (1.5 to 1.8 m). His clothing normally consists of a pair of black, skinny jeans with a white-hooded sweatshirt, sometimes stained with fresh and old blood from his victims.
Jeff appears to be an extremely brutal, sadistic, and insane individual. The smile on Jeff's face represents his sadism and overall bloodlust. His appearance shows just how much he will focus to harm somebody.
Jeff is primarily presented as a vain, narcissistic, emo-style teenager, who has absolutely no intention of following general rules and will only listen to his own self. He appears to be a mastermind when it comes to his emotions, managing to hide them and constantly pushes the attitude of ignorance towards everything.
It is believed that Jeff is vain and full of his own self, but the reality is that Jeff actually hates himself and has numerous stresses over his physical appearance. Jeff also appears to be having issues with people leaving and forgetting him in their lives totally. He was very quiet and anti-social, and people generally didn't have knowledge about Jeff. His voice also appears to be very eerie and soft and he speaks in a rather calm and polite manner.
Clearly, Jane the Killer was based on Jeff the Killer. It is believed that Jeff murdered Jane's parents, ultimately causing Jane to lose her mind, and motivated her to become the female version of Jeff, and create her revenge, which consists of hunting down and murdering Jeff. Others believes that Jeff managed to kill her and his whole families, and that he lit Jane on fire, causing her to become disfigured. Although these are all speculations.
Some theories suggest that Slender Man and Jeff the Killer are aware of each other's existence. Primarily suggesting that they are each others rivals. In order to defeat each other, Jeff is using his knives and Slender Man is using his tentacles. Others believe that Slender Man murdered Jeff's family, and found Jeff alive, which gave Slender Man the opportunity of making Jeff his proxy.
