Hank James is 29 years old, he was born and raised in North Carolina, he is the 2nd oldest of 6 brothers all of which have a very close relationship and when working together with each other they don't let much get in their way.
Hank was a troubled child when growing up, He was always trying to impress his older brother and earn his respect. He was also the closest with his older brother John and would often tag along with him when out causing trouble and dealing with business. Hank was always an intelligent boy growing up but could never stick at a school, he was kicked out of four Schools around North Carolina until finally aged 14 he decided to leave School for good and pursue his own ambitions.
Hank started growing and distributing cannabis not long after leaving school, he earned himself a fair bit doing this and ended up expanding his business further by dealing class A drugs for a local gang. Two years after first starting up his small business he was now sixteen and was with two friends at a drug drop off, little did Hank know it was a set up and the police were in on it. Hank ended up attacking a police officer that day almost killing him. He got just under 2 years in juvenile prison before he was released on his 18th birthday.
Hank spent a couple months behaving after he was released but his ambitions were still high, he ended up doing business with his brothers, they had a wide range of making money, Hank's experience growing cannabis was a huge contribution, along with that they stole cars, robbed banks, held up general stores anything to make a bit of money.
At the age of 25 Hank and the rest of the brothers were doing business as usual and all was fine. Hank was alone at his cannabis farm which was in the attic of a rented property when he heard noises coming from downstairs... he was being robbed. Hank grabbed his Smith & Wesson model 36 handgun and loaded it slowly and calmly. He knew this could be a rival gang and that shooting on sight was his only option. Hank carefully walked over to the open hatch in his attic and aimed his hand gun down at the hallway below waiting... he masked man with a machete came into view and without hesitation Hank fired his gun twice hitting the masked man once in the chest and once in the back of the leg. The man fell and wailed in pain. Hank heard another man running down the stair case quickly as in a panic, Hank set chase jumping down from the attic and chasing him out of the house and into the street where he fired two more rounds into the back of the man. He walked over to the man who was now lying on the floor screaming in pain. He turned the man onto his back and without hesitation put his last bullet in his head killing him instantly...
Hank was later arrested that week and charged with first degree murder and was given the death penalty. He spent 4 months in prison before having to be transferred to another where he would wait his death. Fate had another plan however and during his transfer his prison van was ambushed by none other than his own brothers. It turned out that he wasn't the only James brother being chased by the law, thankfully they already had a plan in place, they were fleeing the country to Chernarus to work for a Russian mining company and the rest is history.
