James Laurent son of the famous thief Jeff Laurent. His mother dying at an early age left James with out a positive influence in his life, naturally he followed his fathers footsteps in the family trade. Unfortunately for James he was never as good as his father, getting caught countless times for petty crimes, 9 months spent behind bars for assisting in a town bank robbery and trial for murder at the age of 15.
James’s father began returning to old habits taking his anger for his sons mistakes out on him. This lead to James leaving home at the young age of 16 and going out on his own in the world with no plan of return.
For the past 5 years James has survived setting up in abandon buildings and sometimes even caves, keeping moving never staying for more then a few days at a time at one location. Stealing food, cloths when ever he could.
It was only in the past year he changed his ways completely. After trying to break into a home for nothing but food, James almost ended up dying when the home owner woke up and attacked him with an axe.
Escaping into the nearby woods with hatchet wounds up his left arm and across his right eye, James swore on his dead mothers grave he would never take from others again and learn to become self sufficient to survive and live.
James now enjoys living alone, distant from people and the big towns so he can be away from any distractions or conflict potentially landing him in trouble breaking his life long promise to his dead mother.
