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.
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.
