Jared is one of the luckier werewolves..er, shapshifters.
He imprinted on someone his own age, for one. And the girl he imprinted on already was practically in love with him. It wasn't awkward like Sam and Leah and Emily. Or really
weird like Quil and Claire.
Paul and Jacob's sister (I forgot which one it was
) was sort of normal, too, except for the fact that it was completely random.
So, in that whole winded explanation, my point was that Jared is a pretty cool character, but he's rather undeveloped, but from what we see, he seems like a very lucky guy/wolf.
(Wow, that's a terrible run-on sentence, oh well.)
