His favorite pass-time is watching locost run around on fire while enjoying the pleasure of shooting at their feet with a lancer.
James deeply mourns the loss of his fiance, Catrina. He was inspired to become a gear just to claim revenge but now he fights for non-personal reasons. His sister, Caroline Garand, is a pilot fighting for the COG.No other relations are currently known.
