Growing up in a small town outside of Toronto, James had the easiest of upbringings with a wealthy family and a private education. On a journey to find himself he has walked into the dangerous situation that is Chernarus. Son of a farmer and an insurance agent from Napanee, James graduated university top of his class in medicine but other than good academic standing, hes lazy and ungrateful making many brash decisions based solely on his feelings and not considering the consequences. Having an education in medicine allowed james to become a paramedic with doctors without borders. He says its to help those less fortunate but he seems more interested in the places he visits than the people he helps.
