[DETAILED STATS]

Appearance:
 James is soldily built and while he is shorter than some, it's barely noticable. His frame is finely toned, but not needlessly so. He values function over form, and therefore is proportionately built. He usually keeps his hair medium length and slicked back, but is known to vary it with a buzz cut or longer length from time to time. His skin is weathered, tanned, and belies the amount of time he spends outdoors. His face is covered in an ample beard that he keeps well groomed.   

Personality:
 Quiet while he gets to know you, he is a boisterous (but not obnoxious) in social situations. He has a quick wit and an even quicker temper. His anger can cloud his judgement, but has never seriously impeded him while in a dire situation. He enjoys a good joke and likes to blow off steam, so is known to be a practical joker. If you get on his good side he's an intensely loyal friend, but it's best not to get on his bad side. He keeps his friends close, and his enemies within shooting distance.     

Hobbies/Interests:
 Enjoys woodworking, especially furinture making. Plays guitar in a local thrash bluegrass band called the Pale Riders. When he's got down time, he enjoys spending time on his father's land near Hazard, Kentucky where he's building a cabin. Enjoys homebrewing moonshine and other liquors.

 Personal History:
 James (who often goes by the nickname "Sully") was born and raised in the coal country of Hazard, Kentucky. His father, a Vietnam veteran, was strict but fair. His mother, a nurse, was killed when James was 5 in a drunk driving accident.


At an early age he was fascinated with the outdoors and often spent more time there than in school. In his early teens, James took up playing football, but didn't find it to be anything he'd ever excel at, but it did give him his first interaction with a team environment. Never a scholar, James often struggled with school work, but was able to graduate high school.

 Before he left for basic James, stereotypically, married his high school sweetheart Elizabeth. His marriage was often impacted by his long deployments and desire to make the Army his career.  In 2013, he and Elizabeth divorced. They have no children together, which simplified the situation, but didn't remove the sting entirely.

 Relationships:
 The following are publicly known relationships.

 ♂Michael Andrew Hendricks, father, living - close relationship
 ♀Elena Anne Hendricks, mother, deceased - no relationship
 ♀Elizabeth Marie Hendricks (nee Carter), ex-wife, living - strained but friendly relationship
 ♂Elias "Doc" Caruso, fellow CAG operator, living - friend
 ♂Hector "Speedy" Rodriquez, fellow CAG operator, living - friend
 ♂Paul "Voodoo" Harris, fellow CAG operator, living - friend
 ♂Jack "Dingo" Stephens, DevGru operator, living - friend
