"I can't believe I'm about to say this, but, tell me more..."
Patrome. It's not canon, but has a large and growing and dedicated fanbase behind these two.
Patricia, the goth pixie, and Jerome, the prankster.
Right away in season 1, we got a glimpse of Patrome as the two teamed up, with Alfie, to pull the initiation prank on Nina. Later, Jerome tried to help her find Joy and teased her about it later. Patricia panicked when Jerome was taken by Rufus and was the one who got Sibuna to his rescue.
Though it may not seem like it at first, these two are actually very similar.
Personality wise, both of them are very stubborn, not backing down until they get what they want. Both of them are very observant, noticing and thinking things the other characters don't, such as with the search for Joy and Jerome knowing immediately that Jasper stole the gem. Another similarity is their sense of humor. They both like pranks and teasing others, both playfully and not.
Looking even closer, they are also similar plotwise and relationshipwise. Both worked for Rufus, got kidnapped, tried to escape and got taken away again to where Sibuna saved them. They both had big searches and partially solo mysteries - Jerome with his dad and the gem, Patricia with Joy. Both had big fallouts with their best friend and made up at the end of the season. They also both had sisters they tried to keep secret, and in the end of season 1, the only characters left single.
With relationships, both aren't that close to Mick and agree that he's not too bright. They are the two closest people to Mara and are also both close to Alfie. Both started as rivals with Eddie but grew closer to him, and they both tease Nina, Fabian, and Amber.
In all, Patrome has potential to be canon just based off their similarities alone. They also have a spark, and were the first love-hate relationship in the show. If done right, these two can have a very strong relationship or friendship between them.
The Key Players
Or Trixie; as Jerome and Alfie, the guys she loves joking around with would call her, is a goth pixie who apparently doesn’t give a dime to what others think about her. Strong, determined, and courageous. Joy’s safe return was thanks to Patricia’s persistence to find her. Trixie is also very outspoken, which sometimes makes her get trouble. In season one, feeling alone and desperate, went to Rufus looking for help to know the reason about Joy’s disappearance. Later after Patricia joins Sibuna, she gets kidnapped by Rufus, and she realizes he was just using her in order for the Secret Society not getting the elixir from him. She invites Alfie to join Sibuna, who invites Jerome later. At a beginning, Patricia and the other Sibunas didn’t trust him, but later, things clear up to reveal Jerome just went to Rufus because of the same reason as Patricia: being misunderstood. Despite all her sarcasm, its undeniable how much she cares about her friends. Friends like Jerome Clarke: after he vanished because of Rufus, Patricia panics and tells the others in order to search for him. She understands how dangerous that was because she dealt with Rufus before.
The prankster king of the house. Sneaky, sharp and a blackmailer, if it is necessary. He and his best friend, Alfie Lewis, are the Anubis comedians. In the beginning, Jerome just enjoyed causing trouble to other people and managing the situation for his very own benefits. Later on, he starts to see things under a more serious light. A bunch of his friends have something in hands, and of course he has to know what that’s about. Feeling left out, he thought he would fill that emptiness with money, so he told Rufus about some precious info he could give him. But later he got caught by the Sibunas, who made him know how bad was Rufus. After redeeming himself, he temporarily joined Sibuna. In Season 2, he isn’t in Sibuna anymore, as he had to deal with other things, which involved his father and younger sister, Poppy; but the connection between his search for a gem and Sibuna’s search for the mask can’t be more existent. Later on, he realizes Rufus was the Collector. Then Rufus kidnaps him, but fortunately he receives help to get out of that place thanks to his friends searching, a movement started by Patricia.
Who was that creep?: The Official Patrome Manifesto
In the show, Patricia and Jerome are known as long time friends. They appeared to frequently team up on pranks (team which includes Alfie, Jerome's best friend) before things started to get thick at Anubis House. Like when Joy, Patricia's best friend, vanished with no clue. And to make Patricia more angry, no one else seemed to remember Joy.
Jerome stuck with Trixie while she was acusing Nina Martin, the American newbie, of causing Joy's disappearance. He supported her dangerous initiation prank on Nina. He also enjoyed teasing Patricia because of her obsession with finding Joy. Once, he told her he could help her to talk to Joy's ghost. It ended all being a prank, with a fake crystal ball and Alfie as the seer. Patricia continued with her search, and started being followed by a creepy man, Rufus Zeno, who offered to help her find Joy. Later on, after Patricia joins Sibuna (once she concludes Nina isn't behind Joy's disappearance), she goes with Rufus Zeno to a supposed meeting with Joy. It was actually a trick and Rufus kidnapped her, so the Secret Society wouldn't get the elixir instead of him. Patricia then realized that Rufus was an antagonist, but Jerome did not.
Jerome was feeling left out, because all of his friends were wrapped up in the mystery. He eavesdropped on Sibuna and Rufus paid him for the information. Of course, Sibuna was angry (even Patricia), and told him what he was doing was careless and risky. He realized his mistake and promised to help the Sibunas if he was allowed in their little club. With that, Jerome became a temporary Sibuna Member. In Season 2, Jerome isn't a Sibuna anymore. He had to solve mysteries of his own, like searching about his father and then a gem. That search was undeniably related to Sibuna's search for the Anubis Mask. While Patricia had to face many dangerous tasks during the search, and also deal with keeping secrets from Joy and Eddie Miller (her current boyfriend). To make things more of a mess, Piper Williamson, her twin sister comes for a few days and stirs a little bit more of drama. When Jerome, teamed up with Jasper, went to get back the doll house, Rufus spotted and kidnapped him. Before that, Jerome got to know Rufus was the Collector. Overall, Jerome and Patricia didn't have terribly much interaction in the first part of Season 2. Then, Patricia panics after she finds out Jerome was kidnapped by Rufus. This shows her concern for his wellbeing. She tells the Sibunas and the search for Jerome starts. Jerome escapes from Rufus, and joins the Sibunas. Patricia never would let her slimeball run the risk of being taken by the person who was such a danger for herself, Jerome and all the others. And Jerome definitely wanted Trixie to know he wasn't allied with the enemy. They both consider their friendship something big, something that just can't be broken. In Season 3, Jerome turned to Patricia for help to get Willow Jenks out of rooming with Mara Jaffray. Later, they grew even closer when Patricia asked Jerome on a fake date to make Eddie jealous.
