Personality

Trevor Lefkowitz is the embodiment of the free-spending, free-wheeling, wealthy and carefree lifestyle of the 1990s. Part financial advisor, part frat boy, Trevor loves to brag about the many parties he attended, along with telling stories of hobnobbing with celebrities and of his many sexual exploits. Self-assured and confident, Trevor seems to have not made the wisest of financial choices, as many of his selected companies, including Lehman Brothers, went bankrupt after his death.

While being the most recently deceased ghost, Trevor is modern and relatively computer literate, but this has not won him the respect of ghosts with more seniority, like Hetty or Issac. He is known for his signature hand gestures of a capital T when he achieves a personal victory or success. Interestingly, in spite of his self-centered ways, Trevor shows compassion for, and an interest in, ‘livings.’ As soon as he discovers a dating app, Trevor demonstrates great tenacity and perseverance in learning how to use an iPad, create his own dating profile, and communicate with a potential love interest. Later, with empathy and genuine affection, he releases Bela once he is revealed to be the one behind the dating profile, revealing Trevor to have a tender, romantic side beneath his cocky, finance bro exterior.

Surprising to many within the Woodstone Mansion, it was revealed in ‘Trevor’s Pants,’ that there is more depth and strength to Trevor’s character than what had previously been known. While alive, Trevor secretly offered assistance to a hazed co-worker (of which Sasappis witnessed but kept secret for over 20 years). As a ghost, Trevor did not wish to ruin his fellow colleagues lives, despite their own hazing of him and their betrayal of the ‘bro code’ code of conduct that they all claimed to live by. These revelations established Trevor as a ghost with a strong sense of integrity and gave him a new faith in, and love for, his ghostly family.

History

Trevor, also known as “T-Money,” has some of the least known history of all the ghosts in the mansion. His cause of death, and missing pants, create much speculation. What is known about Trevor is prior to his death, he was a wealthy ‘finance bro’ who worked for Lehman Brothers on Wall Street in the mid to late 1990s. He either died in in the late 1990s or in 2000 or 2001, on the grounds of the Woodstone Mansion, most likely at a party.

As a ghost, Trevor leads an existence where he has memories of his career and parties to sustain him as he deals with being the most recently deceased ghost on the property. When living couple Jay and Sam Arondekar move into the mansion, Trevor becomes excited to be in the home with an active young couple until the couple’s plans for a hotel are revealed (“Pilot”). He is the first to bring up the idea of haunting them into leaving (“Pilot”). As a ghost, Trevor has the ability to move small objects, like cups and computer keys, with great and painful effort. It was his successfully dropped vase which caused Sam to trip and become injured, allowing her to see the spirits in their new home (“Hello”).

Trevor’s relationship with the ghosts is friendly but complicated. He admires Thorfinn’s wild Viking ways but is often treated with disrespect by Hetty (“Dinner Party,” “The Vault”). Since he is the closest to Jay and Sam generationally, he also relates to them in a way the other ghosts cannot (“Jay’s Sister”).

For all the bragging of his parties and partners, Trevor also shows an interest in livings and in still finding connection and love. His greatest act while a ghost seems to be the creation of his own dating profile (“Jay’s Sister”). Using observation of Jay, Sam and others, Trevor leaned how to use apps, the iPad and the modern internet, to create his own dating profile and begin communicating with women. When it is revealed that he has been communicating with Jay’s sister Bela, and his identify is revealed, Trevor compassionately releases her to find love with another (“Jay’s Sister”).

In “Trevor’s Pants“, the cause of Trevor’s death, and the loss of his pants, are finally revealed. The story comes to light when a man named Ari Cantor visits the Woodstone Mansion to discuss purchasing Elias Woodstone’s antique pocket watch. Trevor is excited to see his former ‘bro’ and presses Sam to ask Ari about his recollections of working with Trevor. From there, the mystery, and lies, justifyed around Trevor’s death, begin to unravel. Trevor tells his fellow ghostly residents of how he, along with Ari Cantor and David Woodstone, traveled to the Woodstone estate in late 2000. Their promotion party at the mansion consisted of hazing, drinking and ‘drug roulette.’ During the course of the night’s events, Trevor consumes two unknown pills and an entire bottle of Chekhov Chill vodka. Two hours later, he would die from drug-induced cardiac arrest.

While Trevor is forthcoming on this version of events, he maintains he lost his pants due to having sex with the limo driver. But Sasappis reveals to the other ghosts that Trevor actually lost his pants by giving them to a young work associate, who was being forced to participate in a cruel hazing rite without his clothes. Trevor secretly gives the young man his pants, boxer shorts and money. Sasappis also reveals that upon Trevor’s death, his fellow colleagues covered up the death by disposing of Trevor’s body in the nearby lake. Trevor realized he has been betrayed by the men he trusted.

After this revelation, Sasappis and the other ghosts successfully hatch a plan to put Ari on notice that they know of what he and the others did to Trevor; this compels Ari to give Sam and Jay twice the asking amount for the watch, as well as consume a bottle of Chekhov Chiller as he had forced his colleagues do. The actions on the part of the ghosts and Sam finally show Trevor what a loved member of the Woodstone Mansion he truly is amongst his ghostly, and living, family.

Appearance

Dark-haired and handsome, between the ages of 30-35, Trevor is one of the most unusually dressed ghosts at the Woodstone mansion — he is a ghost who wears no slacks or underwear. Aside from the missing pants, he is dressed in the dark gray suit jacket and button down blue shirt and tie common for those working in white collar, office jobs. He also wears dress shoes and blue-black argyle socks.
