HAI MOM. So! Naomi's Jacob's mother, and he is conflicted about her: On one hand he loves her for being his mother and the love she has shown his sister and himself, on the other, he hates her for the addiction and madness he had to put up with as a child. Now, Jacob is fighting his mother to get out of the regency and rule as Lord on his own. He's extremely strong willed, and also extremely hard on himself to be excellent, to be on par to the expectations he believes would be his father's. And he sees his mother as being an obstacle to that, so to speak. So yeah further plotting needs to be done between those two!
