James Jackson is part of the crew of the UNSC Leviathan at the time of the battle of Reach. He is one of the six Specialists assigned to the ship. James is the engineer/technician on the team. He is a regular mr-fix-it but he's not all work, his love for getting in the groove is well known amongst his team mates. His inventive tinkering and his can-do attitude has got him into more trouble than it's got him out of. But for the rest of the crew his ability to upgrade almost anything to an impossibly high degree is practically a miracle.
