"Don’t pull that shit with me, Hanford! We got two dead already, and things are only getting worse! I strongly advise you call CEC and tell them we’re pulling out."
—James pressing his words against Hanford Carthusia.

Commander James was the head of P-Sec on the Aegis VII Colony.


The Second Aegis VII Incident[]

An elderly man, James was quite level headed and pragmatic, trying to ensure that order was kept in the colony. After the series of tragic events following the discovery of Marker 3A, Commander James took the stance of fellow P-Sec officer Abraham Neumann in seeing the Marker as the cause of these issues, even going so far to try and convince Hanford Carthusia that the operation should be abandoned, an idea that the Colony Manager immediately rejected. Neumann then asked James what to do next, and James simply said "Brace ourselves". 

It is unknown exactly when or how James died, but his body was found by Neumann and Marla Janssen along with the corpses of Jones and McCabe in the P-Sec Headquarters shortly after the Necromorphs began their attack. His torso had a massive hole and his lower jaw was torn off. Soon after this grisly discovery, James morphed into an Infector and began infecting corpses in the room. The Infector was shot by Neumann, but as Necromorphs are not easily killed by bullets, the creature survived its injuries and resumed its work with the other corpses.
