John Lane (character)
He is slightly taller than the canon Jane and has hair more like his brother Trent. Because of divergence from the canon storyline, the bank successfully foreclosed on Casa Lane. In the fallout from that event, John's plight was reported to the local child protective agency. At Daria's insistence, Helen and Jake agreed to become John's legal guardian after Amanda and Vincent reluctantly agreed.
Life with the Morgendorffers stabilized his life and he developed a romantic relationship with Daria. As the series progressed, issues with his biological parents were slowly addressed.
First introduced in the story "John."
