Early life Edit
Very little is known about his life, except that in the past has had an affair with Stella Gibson and that he was willing to leave his wife. He attended A.A. and didn't drink alcohol for several years until he got drunk during investigations.
He is a devout Christian man who often collides with the open-minded Stella. During the investigations is called "weak" by Eastwood and this upsets him greatly, as he too thinks he is a weak. Jim is sexually attracted to Stella so much to try to possess her by force but then attributed his actions to alcohol.
Physical Appearance Edit
Jim is a man on the threshold of fifty years. Salt and pepper hair, bushy gray beard that covers his face and an athletic build who has enfeebled with age advanced. He has small eyes blacks that give him the look of a beaten dog.
