Born in a council estate to a single mother who was an alcoholic Jimmy soon learned to survive by himself. He became friends with the local travellers despite not being one himself, they welcomed him in. They usually hung around the estate drinking and smoking some hash occasionally they would go for a joyride. One night it was Jimmy's turn to pick out a car and bring it around the block for a spin. It was his third lap around when the Garda cruiser came around the corner. He was busted. He thought about going for a chase but was low on petrol so gave in. He was brought in and sentenced to a year at the Joy.
After his sentence his traveller boys held a party for him. At this party he got absolutely fucked up, and ended the night with two beauts. The next day when he woke up with a hangover they had one final gift for him. They were sending him to Novigrad in Chernarus. At first Jimmy was like "The fuck is that?" but decided a holiday is a holiday and went.
He decided to bring one of the girls with him for company. Upon arrival they got a taxi to their hotel. It was a complete shithole, mold in every corner of the room and the bedsheets had all sorts of stains. They went clubbing everynight and slept nearly all day. There was a bit of a language barrier when talking to people at times but it was grand, they were enjoying the trip.
On the final day of their trip they woke up midday-ish and missed their flight. They were pissed right the fuck off but thought positively and just called the boys back home to book another flight home for them the following day or two.
Outside there was panic. They didn't have a clue what was happening. Upon stepping out onto the pavement they noticed some bloody figure chasing someone. They walked the opposite direction and tried to ignore it. When passing an alleyway some fella jumped out at them. Jimmy threw him a dig in the face to his surprise the cunt didn't budge. Jimmy got his distance and the pouncer then went for the woman. Jimmy knew something was dodgy and she didn't mean shit to him so he legged it.
Fast forward a few weeks of surviving off of bits and pieces he ran into a gang of raiders now know as "Dead Batteries". The ones who took lead were two men called Buzzo and Bogdan. They took Jimmy's belongings but took him along with them. They had a purpose for him. At first Jimmy was pissed but eventually grew to accept the fact he would be with them for a while.
He has been with this gang in Novigrad this whole time helping with the dealing of Comfort. He has been sent to South Zagoria with others after Buzzo had been killed.
