"Someday I’m hoping to close my eyes and pretend that this crumpled up paper can be perfect again."


James is the adopted son of Indiana farmers. Getting him to talk about his pre-school days is difficult, but what he has mentioned isn’t unpleasant and he has no ill words about his parents.


Although rather growly and bitey when he first arrived, James has adjusted very well to his new life at the school. Nowadays, he revels in his role as “the hyperactive, difficult one” and is infamously known for his special brand of mischief. But under the “funny guy exterior,” James has revealed himself to be a rather loyal, loving, and protective beasty that puts his friends and team above all. He's rather like an Ace Levy / Jake Busey from the first Starship Troopers movie.

X-Force Security

James is now a member of Julian's security team. While he is not an X-Force member, he does act as a first responder when there's a problem on school grounds. [OOCly: James is considered 'on call' for security issues, fights, etc. Please page when needed.]


  • "Twice in one week! What are the odds?" (where applicable)
  • "Wrong room. Down the hall, to the left, down the stairs, out the door. Walk 'till morning." (upon meeting his roommate for the first time)
  • "I'm gonna Ultimate Nullifier your mouth!" (on making friends)


  • Is usually one of the first things new students and staff are warned to avoid.
  • Has a rumored (or not) habit of sending people to the med bay over disagreements.
  • Wears broken welding goggles on his head at all times. It's his most guarded possession.
  • Almost always cooks for himself.
  • Is not a canine.

Powers & More

Most of James’ powers are linked to his beast side, giving him rather predictable mutant abilities. However, aside from being a feral, James shows a surprising amount of promise in a completely separate field that has nothing to do with being a beast.
