Esau Jr. will keep any passive starting items the original character had; however, if said item(s) are rerollable, they will still count towards the number of items Esau Jr. will get. This would mean a character like Eve would get two extra items while keeping both Dead Bird and Whore of Babylon as Esau Jr.
Tainted Forgotten can turn into Esau Jr. without gaining the ability to move, and turning back removes Tainted Soul, making it impossible to continue. Trying to quit and resume the game causes a crash.
Using this item as Tainted Lazarus replaces both versions' spacebar items with it, and will re-replace any other spacebar items if one version keeps Esau Jr and the other exchanges it for a different spacebar item on next use; also, instead of swapping to Esau, they will swap between the two versions of Tainted Lazarus on use.
Using this item as Esau will cause a crash and corrupt data.
If used as Tainted Isaac, any items Esau Jr. gains on its first use do not count toward the item limit.
