Personality

Idiot: James doesn't really think before acts. Or speaks really. He'll do or say whatever's on his mind at a given moment. He also tends to blindly charge ahead when faced with adversity. Consequences be damned. Reckless is also applicable.

Guarded: He hasn't really had a whole lot of stability in his life, which can make him come across as stand-offish to other people. Being not entirely in control of his abilities doesn't help this. Once he warms up to someone though, he's damn near impossible to get rid of.

Competitive: Being a dragon, James is prideful and competitive to a fault. If you challenge him to do something, he will go out of his way prove you wrong. Regardless of what it is. He'll also often refuse to admit when he's in the wrong.


Additional Information
Has an interest in fire and explosives and gets easily excited when talking about them.

Really likes really spicy food. Eats ghost peppers for fun.

History

Date of Birth
June 19th
Place of Birth
Tombstone, Arizona
James was born as the youngest child of a fire dragon, and a human mother. Unfortunately, his mother died during child birth, and the dragon didn't exactly know or care to learn how to raise a human child, so he promptly abandoned James. Thankfully, his mother had a younger brother, a firefighter, who was able to take the child in.

From there, James lived a fairly normal life his powers flaring up from time to time, but with both of his adoptive parents being firefighters, he still managed to live a fairly normal, fairly quiet life.

That would all change around his tenth birthday. Some say it was a electric fire, some say it was a cooking accident, but no matter who you ask the end result is the same. The Lawsen's home went up in flames in the middle of the night, killing both of his adoptive parents, and with no family that was able to take him in, James was put into Foster Care.

From here he would spend the next couple of years bouncing around from place to place, almost always mixing up trouble. Be it getting expelled for fighting, or getting arrested for arson, or just because it simply didn't work out. Every time he got sent back into the Foster Care for some reason or another, and this has led to a fair bit of resentment and some fear.

Now, for better or for worse he's been sent to Polaris Pass to live with Hudson. For how long, has yet to be determined.
