Seigneur James, formerly known as Jimmy the Hand, is a playable character in Betrayal at Krondor. He is first encountered in Chapter 1 and is part of the party in Chapters 2, 3, 5 and 7.

Description

Once known as Jimmy the Hand, Seigneur James is the son of the Upright Man, the leader of the thieves' guild in Krondor, though James is not aware of his true heritage. His theiving skills and quickness were legendary, but now, elevated to the nobility by Prince Arutha, Seigneur James has taken his position of authority very seriously, though he still wanders his old thief haunts in disguise...on occasion. He is extremely loyal to Arutha, and will do anything his liege lord asks him to.

History

James is a childhood friend of Seigneur Locklear. James has taught him lockpicking and other thieving tricks, such as how to access the Palace from the Sewers of Krondor.

Years after the Battle of Sethanon, James knew that one conspirator wanted the Sewers cleaned out of thieves, and concocted the plan that the Guild of Death had reestablished operations in Krondor, using the Sewers as their hideout, hoping that the Krondorian Lancers would root the thieves out.

Seven months after Locklear left for the Northlands, James secretly descended the Sewers to investigate the fake Nighthawks for a couple of days, when he saw Locklear, Gorath and Owyn fighting a band of them. James was surprised to see Locklear 3 months earlier than the end of his duty, and he said that he is there to warn Arutha that the moredhel are preparing to invade the Kingdom of the Isles. James told them the news, and that the survivors of the real Nighthawks had escaped to Romney. Before parting, he handed Locky the Royal Key of Krondor.
