"I, Jim, am willing to pledge my loyalty to the Norton Family and follow milord, Lorist, from now on. I will carry out my duties to shield the honor of the Norton Family Knights. I am willing to become the sword of Lord Lorist and fight until my last breath under the banner of the Raging Bear."
Two Star Silver ranked
The former co-leader of a mercenary group, along with Hausky.
Jim, the second in command of Lorist’s guards.
A blonde bearded mercenary.
His mercenary group had been hired by Viscount Kenmays less than two months before Lorist's arrival.
Jim had followed Lorist along for quite some time. Even though he behaved like a mercenary now and then, his loyalty, hardworking attitude and bravery stood out more than the others. Hence, Lorist promoted him to family knight.
When the Hanayabarta Kingdom invaded Silowas Island, after receiving Freiyar's message, Charade quickly notified the Whitebird Town garrison to make preparations for battle and instructed the third local defense brigade to come over to the town quickly to reinforce them. The hundreds of foes who arrived on shore on the first few ships were successfully intercepted by the garrison force, but there were many more ships behind them. More and more enemy troops began to swarm them.

After Josk drew the blademaster away, the Whitebird Town garrison crumbled from the overwhelming force of the enemy. At the critical moment, Patt and his third local defense brigade troops arrived and managed to drive the enemy away. Following that, Jim led his regiment of 500 guards to reinforce them, giving them the upper hand in battle. Charade was commanding the troops during the battle and thought that the reinforcements they just received would be able to drive the enemy out. He was right, the enemy couldn't resist them for long and were quickly beaten. But just as they saw the enemy retreating from the town, more than a hundred large-class merchant vessels arrived and started unloading their forces. This new wave of enemy troops was far stronger than those we had just beaten. They had many silver and gold ranks, as well as two blademasters. The local defense brigade suffered heavy losses right away, up to a thousand died. The first regiment leader of the brigade, Joseph, and the fourth regiment leader Donowan, died during that time.
Seeing that the situation was turning bad, Charade ordered them to evacuate the citizens of Whitebird Town to Farama Village as soon as possible. Other than that, he gave the order to arm the laborers and send them to fight off those pirates. At that time, they thought that they were merely pirates and didn't think for a second that they were actually the slavers and traders of the Hanayabarta kingdom.
Charade brought Jim and more than 20 guards to leave in a hurry. They had no clue what happened to them after that.
Jim's had accidentally used an old battleforce circulation path while he was familiarizing himself with the new paths, causing the force within his bloodstream to clash and injure him. Resulting in him ending up as a cripple who could not use the slightest bit of battleforce. However, all he had to do was rest for half a year to recover. Not only that, he could start training with the high-ranked battleforce technique right away without having to retrain his old techniques. It would take him roughly eight months to a year to breakthrough the bronze and iron ranks to regain his former strength as a silver rank. Having experienced failure, he would still have gained some experience from the attempt so the effort was definitely not in vain.
