"James is basically a nice kid, but he tends to go off the rails if you don't keep a close eye on him."
Meryl Spencer, handler.
"I love my brother, but he's dead moody and sometimes I just want to punch his lights out."
Lauren Adams, sister.
"Sometimes you see James hanging around with his mates and you'd think he was just an ordinary teenager. You don't realize what he's really capable of until he's working under pressure on a mission."
