James was the oldest of two brothers born and raised in Bristol. He spent much of his young life working odd jobs and only occasionally attending school so that he could better support his family. His powers were inherited from his mother, Rose, and his father, Richard, did not have any such abilities. Still both sons manifested darkness related powers, but they were far less powerful then thier mother's. This showed that the family's inherited powers were slowly diluting over time. After he barely passed high school he left the house to look for steady work.
