James grew up in rather luxury surroundings. His father (Andrew) had started a business with his old school friend before James was born and his mother (Alina) was his personal assistant. Alina and Andrew married and a few years later James was born. James’ mother gave up her job to look after him during his childhood, whilst his father’s company kept on expanding.
James was given a managing role in his father’s company (C&S Co.) after he had passed his schooling but was never given the full information as to what his father’s company did. To him C&S Co. dealt with providing greener energy solutions to the world, which it did but at the same time his father’s company had spread into new territory, buying stocks and shares and providing equipment/supplies to countries in need (for a price of course).
In June 2017 Andrew sent James to Chernarus to complete several business deals and overlook the work that was taking place in the country. His father believed it was the right time for James to step up in his role and see what C&S Co. did. When James arrived in the country he began work straight away, he soon realised that not only was C&S Co. providing the materials for new housing after the civil war along with wind turbines and pipe work they were also providing much needed weaponry to the country (again all for a price). James soon found out that C&S Co. profited from countries misfortunes, they would look good from a public view with their green energy solutions and rehousing the poor but underneath it all the company had a darker side providing weaponry to the highest bidder or ripping off governments that thought they were getting a fair deal.
In July James attempted to the leave the country after the stories that were coming from South Zagoria. He boarded a company Yacht but in the storm, it never made it out of the Green Sea. James managed to survive the shipwreck escaping on an inflatable life boat. With nothing useful on him, James finds himself floating towards a coastline in the distance.
On arriving on the South Zagorian Coast, James ran into a group of survivors. One of these survivors was Rory Taylor a young lady just trying to run the group and keep them alive. James stuck around with the group and started to make decisions what was best for them all. In time they started to follow James, they all joking started to call the group the Brotherhood of Thieves as to survive they needed to take from the local populations houses which in the old days would have been theft. The group stayed in the city of Chernagorsk where they took an old pub and converted it into a hub for other likeminded survivors. The pub was a front, a way to gather information and use it to the groups benefit. During their time together they learnt how to pickpocket successfully and how to sneak into places without being seen. One of these places was Kovars Market, a warehouse run by survivors to trade goods scavenged. James and the Brotherhood would often sneak into this warehouse and take from their stock, guns, ammo, food, you name it the Brotherhood stole it. Eventually the Brotherhood started to fall apart with betrayal and death. James left the group in the middle of the night, sneaking out as the rest of the group slept and travelled West.
Over a year had passed and James hadn't got far. Luck wasn't on his side, people he found on the way eventually turned up dead. A relationship he formed with a girl called Sarah ended up in betrayal where he was injured and left for dead before being found by a local Chernarussian. The Chernarussian man patched James up and gave him antibiotics to fight off the infection that had taken hold. James awoke one day to a note from his carer, it stated the man had left for supplies and dated a week ago. James waited in the house for the mans return and after a further 2 weeks gave up hope the man was coming back. James eventually ran into a group of young males and females just trying to survive as best they could and tagged along with them back to South Zagoria.
