Personality: James is generally a gung ho person. Since recently leaving his planetary defense force, James has been looking for a new cause to jump into and has been picking up random bounties while he waits to find something to truly dive into.

Objectives: James is a rebel without a cause. He is happy to be out of the rigid hierarchy of the defense force, but liked the cause that it stood for. He is looking for a similar righteous cause to jump into, preferably with a lot less red tape.
