Character Bio

AGE: 54
BACKGROUND: Mechanic, former musician
HOMETOWN: Portland, OR

James Harness is irreplaceable. He is the team's only mechanic, and built most of the mining equipment from scratch. He's never mined for gold before but he prides himself on being able to fix any machine that he lays his hands on. In Alaska, his hands are full, because without round-the-clock maintenance and running repairs, the mining will grind to a halt. No one doubts James' ability or his commitment, but there are fears that his body will not be able to cope with the strain. A life led in the fast lane has taken its toll, particularly a car wreck that left him James with a severe spinal injury and an ankle held together with metal pins. James is determined not to let the team down, and is prepared to push himself to the limit at any cost.
