General Timeline Information Edit
James was born in 1994 and would later attend the same school as Tim Allender. He would go on to join THEM in 2002 and later met Tim in the school basketball team in early 2003, becoming friends with him as they shared the same birthday. Later in early 2007, James would learn that Tim had joined the SSC and tricked his friend into revealing the location of an SSC meeting-place; resulting in a brutal siege on the SSC. Tim would learn of James's hand in this ordeal, prompting the two into becoming enemies. James would go on to quit THEM and establish his own group called The Brotherhood of Death, to get revenge on his former friend. Though Tim ultimately confronted James in 2010 before the plan could reach fruition, resulting in James's face being brutally scarred after a fall. James would go on to disappear until 2011, where he silently worked to establish The Brotherhood a second time and recruiting Blade and Rick among others. Finally in 2013, as the war between The SSC, The Brotherhood, and THEM raged on, Tim confronted James one last time and in the ensuing fight, James destroyed a support beam in The Death Pit, causing the entire place to crumble apart and resulting in James's suspected death.
James was just 8 years old when he joined THEM as a soldier. He would go on to join the school basketball team, where he would meet Tim Allender and the two became immediate friends. This friendship would last for years, with the two often meeting in the halls to chat or hang out. James kept his employment as a THEM member secret from Tim, and used his influence to make sure no THEM member ever hurt his friend. However after learning that Tim joined the SSC, he came up with the plot to trick Tim into revealing a special meeting location. The trick was successful and James was able to convince Talon to mount a strike on the SSC forces. Tim would later realize this betrayal and confront James, with the two unable to reach any friendly agreement. This ultimately led to the two becoming enemies.
Later, James would quit THEM and form his own unit called The Brotherhood of Death; which was soley created for revenge against Tim and the SSC as a whole. However before these plans could fully come to fruition, Tim intervened and met up with Jame's on a lake-side, where the two fought and James was pushed down onto the rocky shore below; scraping his face against the jagged stones and terribly scarring it. James then went into hiding and silently recreated The Brotherhood, even recruiting Blade and Rick to act as commanders of troopers.
James would eventually start to send both Blade and Rick on multiple mission to capture/harass Tim for quite some time, eventually leading to Tim falling into a deep depression as he struggled to keep the attacks a secret from his friends. Eventually though, the SSC learned of The Brotherhood and mounted a war strike against them, leading to James meeting up with Tim a final time in the Death Pit to fight. After a brutal battle and nearly killing Tim, the latter was able to corner James and was put into the position to kill him and end any chance at a future war. However Tim ultimately decided against it, instead walking away from James and ignoring his cries to keep fighting. Now filled with rage, James lept at Tim in a final attempt to finish him, only to be kicked back into a support beam; destroying it and sending the entire barn crumbling apart. James was immediately trapped under a large piece of fallen debris and as Tim attempted to save him, James simply stated he was "sorry" before pushing Tim away, just in time to save Tim from being crushed by another falling piece of debris. This final act ultimately saved Tim's life and would lead to Tim no longer being interested in fighting, and leaving the SSC behind after helping to piece it back together following the war.
James was a skilled basketball player and relatively friendly person when not working with THEM, in which he could easily lose his temper and behave with overwhelming brutality. He still cared for his friends, making it clear to THEM not to hurt anyone he cared about, though his friendship with Tim was finally lost when James felt betrayed by Tim's unrelenting loyalty to the SSC and his act of defeating Talon. James was smart enough to create his very own fighting force, though operated from the shadows, with very few individuals actually seeing his face. It was James's anger that ultimately led to his abrupt death, though he would come to accept this and spare Tim's life. As far as appearance went, James was described as tall, muscular, and as having light brown hair. Following his battle with Tim by the lake, the left side of the former's face was so horribly scarred that James chose to bandage it up; hiding the wounds under bloody/dirty bandages. James's lust for revenge led to him running away from his home and avoiding detection for years on end; implying he was skilled at living alone yet still making ends meet. His fighting style was incredibly brutal as well, with him teaching Blade and Rick with enough efficiency to allow them both to hold their own against top SSC members, James himself was capable of beating Tim within an inch of his life; demonstrating a level of power unheard of since Darkness,
