James Tinklebottom is a character roleplayed by Whippy.

Background Information Edit

James Tinklebottom's past consists of lies, manipulation, and murder. Before arriving in Los Santos, this dark history resulted in him killing his own wife and daughter to cover his tracks; an act he is often haunted by.[1] He dismisses the thought of getting close enough to anyone to start a romantic relationship again.

James was once deeply involved with The Dark Web and The Brotherhood. During his involvement, he carried out heinous acts that he omits from revealing details of to almost anyone. The only person James has mentioned the events to was Mother, during a secluded meeting[2]. During the conversation James spoke very vaguely of what he was forced to do, hoping to warn Mother of the danger in working with Jacob Harth, The Brotherhood, and The Watchers.

  • At this time, Whippy has stated that James Tinklebottom has been shelved. Tinklebottom may be brought back if, and when, his storyline may play more of a relevant role on the server. Whippy currently has no desire for Tinklebottom to be in the city.

General Description Edit

James currently works for Weazel 14 Detective News, willing to put his life on the line for the next best story to cover. While he stays in the public as a news reporter, James is unafraid to get his hands dirty if his past is in danger of being revealed. He is wanted dead or alive by several citizens of Los Santos, but is not one to go down without a fight (whether verbal or violent.)

Due to the numerous threats to his life and the attention of the public eye, he is currently thought to be in hiding. Following most recent events with Norman Bones, he seems to be allowing things to settle, and for people to forget about him. What he is doing while in solitude is unknown, though he continues to update with stories on the Weazel News website intermittently.
