The way he does feels forced/funny because it feels like he's trying to be something he can't be, being alone is something he got used and that the mistakes lead to it made him thought he is meant to be alone and in the dark, he does have skill but he just really isn't a big bad wolf for me, he's someone that will come to realize it though the story, I hope.
I think that Jean is just the Hotel WILL and/or MC WILL to meet a X or Y, Anon said that in the Hotel objects has some kind of life in them, so I don't doubt that persons could be created to make them go there, sometimes when you wish something it wont be fate that will lead to the hotel but something that guide them to it.
My theory is that the Peacock is Clément grandson and one that could've been the heir of the hotel (if not by the MC intruding).
By my math Clément was AT LEAST 81 YEARS OLD (Based when the game takes place + the last check-in on the hotel entrance + the time they [last master] ignored him for 16 years told in the near ending of positive affection route) and ABOUT 100+ YEARS OLD (a child that just got born can't rule a hotel if you know what I mean) by the time the game takes place (somewhere after the Notre Dame cathedral burned down), Asterion does mention mithical creatures being in the staff but never talked about an actually master being one of them.
I think Clément died just after we left the location then that triggered the peacock dreams.
