Sebastian, a character in The Freshman, The Sophomore, The Junior, and The Senior series, was introduced as a sophomore at Hartfeld University and the Treasurer of the Student Council. He is first seen in The Freshman, Book 2, Chapter 2.
Sebastian has short, dirty blond hair, brown eyes and light skin. He wears a blue jacket, a green pull-under, a white shirt and a red tie. Before his redesign, he wore a yellow pull-under instead of a green pull-under.
Acting is Sebastian's passion. Playing the rogue is his specialty, which makes him perfect for the role of Lord Rathbone in James's play. According to James, Sebastian is something of a "textbook narcissist" and has "delusions of grandeur", believing himself to be superior to Chris and his friends as he went to a prep school while they went to public school. He even tries to bribe Chris into dropping out of the student council election in The Freshman, Book 2. He is also guilty of embezzlement and blackmail. He is racist against Latinos. He isn't worried to show his dark side as he violently grabbed Your Character in public.
In The Sophomore, he appears to be trying to make amends for his past behavior.

Sebastian and James know each other from prep school. The upperclassman describes him as a talented actor and textbook narcissist with delusions of grandeur. It is his idea to cast Sebastian as the villain, as he remembers Sebastian's lago in the prep school's performance of Othello. Initially, they seem to be friends but James is very disappointed in how Sebastian treats the lower and middle class students, mentioning that he was different back in prep school. After this, James turns his back on Sebastian and supports his rival Chris at the campaign.
Sebastian is running against Chris in the Student President election in The Freshman, Book 2. He thinks that Chris and his friends are inferior to him because they are not as wealthy as him and didn't go to a private school. He tries to bribe Chris into dropping out of the election but Chris refuses. In The Freshman, Book 3, Chapter 3, he reveals that he is the new treasurer of the student council, much to Chris's shock and horror. Chris is shocked when Sebastian is willing to make a racist comment against Zig as if it's no big deal in the same chapter. Sebastian tries to shut down all motions by saying that he has budgetary concerns.
In The Sophomore Book 1, Chris, Tyler, and Zig genuinely believe that Sebastian is trying to make amends for his past behavior.
In The Sophomore, Book 2, Chapter 11, Sebastian apologizes to Chris for his behavior and actions during the student council election.
Becca and Sebastian meet at the audition of James's play. They briefly date but she gets fed up with the fact he never takes her out on dates and never compliments her. She dumps him at the end of Book 2.
In The Sophomore, Book 2, Chapter 11, Sebastian apologizes to Becca for his behavior and for ignoring her when they shortly dated back in The Freshman, Book 2.
From the beginning, Sebastian has never really liked Your Character. He immediately insults her and everyone else's acting, showing his narcissism. He has a tendency to bicker and start arguments with the young girl, during which he talks to her in a derogatory and condescending manner. He also attempts to get her kicked out of school because she is on a scholarship, but fails. Their relationship in The Sophomore, Book 1, is up to the player. She can either believe or not believe that he is trying to make amends. When she discovers he sabotaged their boiler, he is ashamed of his actions and wishes things turned out differently. He even offers to pay for repairs to the boiler.
In The Junior, Book 1, he turns to Your Character when he needs help doing his laundry.
Zig has stated he doesn't like bullies so he logically despises Sebastian. Sebastian immediately makes a comment on how Zig probably just got out of jail and is working as a barista, this is racist as Zig is Latino. Zig tries to walk away but Sebastian immediately sticks out his foot to trip him. This leads to Zig punching Sebastian in the face hard enough to knock him to the floor. Despite their differences, Zig, along with Chris and Tyler, believes that Sebastian is genuinely trying to make amends for his past behavior in The Sophomore, Book 1.
In The Sophomore, Book 2, Chapter 11, Sebastian apologizes to Zig.
Tyler is in Sebastian's Business class and states that he is a nice guy when you get to know him. They eventually become really good friends and it is shown that Tyler has been venting to him about his relationship troubles with Abbie when Sebastian immediately comes to his defense. Tyler attempts to invite Sebastian to Your Character's parties to help him get along with the rest of the group, but it ultimately fails. Along with Chris and Zig, Tyler truly believes that Sebastian is trying to make amends for his past.
Dorian Delacroix is Sebastian's father and the person that has told Sebastian to sabotage Your Character's boiler. In a premium scene of The Sophomore, Book 2, Chapter 1, Sebastian tells Your Character about their restrained relationship. Sebastian mentions how he has never been able to talk to his father about his feelings, since his father "takes any genuine emotion as a weekness" and doesn't care about Sebastian's problems. According to Sebastian, the only times his father has time for him is if he thinks Sebastian is a failure. While Sebastian still tries to impress his father, he says at the same time that it is never good enough. When his father listened to his problems for the first time and suggested the sabotage of the bolder, Sebastian hoped that it would finally be different and that his father was sympathizing with him. He thinks that his relationship with his father may be the reason why he can never make any friends, since he is "so used to being on guard". In Chapter 15, Sebastian stands up to his father during the City Council meeting and reveals Dorian's illicit business practices.
If you play the game of Truth or Truth with Sebastian and your friends in The Sophomore Book 2, he will mention the nanny he had when he was about six years old. His father Dorian disapproved of cartoons, so Sebastian wasn't allowed to watch them. However, his nanny let him watch cartoons every Saturday morning when Dorian was absent. Sebastian's parents don't really celebrate birthdays and never allowed him to eat any junk food or anything containing sugar - which is why Sebastian never had a birthday party before The Junior. Sebastian's mother usually got him some clothes for his birthdays. On his eighth birthday, his nanny surprised him with a box of chocolate truffles. However, she was fired immediately afterwards due to negligence. Sebastian assumes Dorian fired her because he found out about the chocolates.

- It was revealed in The Junior, Book 1, Chapter 7, that he used to be a member of Alpha Theta Mu but was kicked out after they found out about his misdeeds against Chris in the school presidential election. After he was kicked out, the fratority buried any connection to Sebastian.

- It is revealed in The Junior, Book 1, Chapter 12, that this is not the real story: he wanted to become part of the inner circle, just like his father and grandfather, and had to pull a stunt to be accepted.

Sebastian [about acting]: In fact, sometimes I don't know whether I'm not more myself when I'm up there, acting the villain.
Sebastian [to Chris]: No, (Your Character's name) is right, I should apologize. Chris, I'm very sorry... That you had to attend a mediocre public school and ended up with an equally mediocre education. [after learning that Chris didn't go to a private school]
