“Jim” was rescued as a half-meter high hairless youth from a high windswept mountaintop where he lay shivering and half dead, somewhere far east of the Salt Lake City ruins. The scout team returned the strange human-appearing youth to Vault 57 where he rapidly grew and transformed into the 1.9 meter tall juggernaut of fur and muscle fondly referred to as “The Terminator”. Jim turned out to be highly intelligent, but has never mastered speech perhaps due to his physiognomy, being able to utter only a few simple words and short phrases. He can however understand complex ideas and has learned to read better than some humans of the clan. He has also learned everything that the best melee fighters of Warrior Company could teach, and quickly. Jim will typically wait for an opportunity to wade into the midst of the foe and use his life-leech power to morph into a truly berserk monstrosity.
