James was born in Kelowna, British Columbia. As a child James was smart and excelled in sports, yet he had anger issues. During his spare time he would spend time outdoors, teaching himself how to live off the land. As a teenager James was a rebellious spirit who got into trouble often, this usually consisted of acts of defiance to his teachers. When James turned sixteen he decided it was time for a change, and joined the Canadian Army Reserves. He did exceptionally well during training, after his training was complete, he spent two years with his unit until he was promoted to corporal. Shortly after this James was offered a position as an United Nations Observer in Chenarus. On March 10th 2017 James landed in the country of Chenarus. Soon James had his first taste of combat when a group of Chedaki rebels ambushed his units convoy. James did not hesitate to fire back up on the rebels, yet he felt for some reason strangely calm. After a few months and many more small sporadic firefights things were getting worse. On the 7th of June things reached a flashpoint.... we all know what happened after that.
