James Baker was born and raised in Shakhovka and is just a peaceful person in general. Quite depressed as his family was killed by the infected slowly and painfully to his heart, he doesn't want any trouble and is just a good kid to anybody. He was stripped of equipment and left on the Chernaurus railway while his attackers drove off with their guns drawn. James never new that there were people taking advantage of the terrible situation by killing or stealing things off innocents. Overall he is a easy target but will never inflict harm without a reason.
