Personal History:

James was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1927.
During his childhood, he grew quite fond of Plant and animal life as well as the Stars. He also drew and colored anything that interested him such as objects, stars, Plants and Animals.
During his years in Elementary School, he never enjoyed socializing with others and would rather sit by himself as he would draw more complex versions of his early childhood drawings. As a result, he lacked most social capabilities that a regular person would have as well as physical strength but achieved a greater mental capability and achieved a higher level of patience.
After his graduation in 1945 he gained a great interest in Archaeology as he began quests with a team of Archaeologists to uncover artifacts then later studied and drew the artifacts that his team uncovered in complex detail,. After his separation from the group for reasons currently unknown, he began research on cryptids also known as creatures such as bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster etc.
After his long, time consuming research, he came across an Organization looking for fresh recruits which was known as the Foundation.
This organization peaked his interest and soon joined in 1954 at the age of 27.
He now currently studies the SCPs and makes artistic depictions of them at times. He stays away from Humanoid and dangerous SCPs due to an encounter with a classified humanoid SCP killed several scientists and nearly killed him as he was trying to protect the other scientists. Fortunately, he was saved when the medical team recovered him unconscious, as a result from the vicious encounter, he now has his left eye missing and gains paranoia but is still dedicated to his research and artistic depictions.


Due to his paranoia, he strongly believes that he cannot go
anywhere without carrying a loaded weapon.
He keeps his calm by smoking a cigarette every once in a while and drawing his favorite characters from tv shows.
