James was commissioned by the Northern Sea Republic to defend many shipping routes throughout the Northern Seas and off the coast of the Northern Shores. During his privateering, he was soon commissioned by the Lord High Admiral to ship cargo to Bosco where he understood what the cargo was. When he went to inspect the cargo, he find himself with slaves from not only humans, but even elves, nomad, Köttur. As he traveled to Bosco, he noticed his escorts being the "prototypes" he heard of, suggesting of something else entirely. Halfway to Bosco, James decided to liberate the slaves, and went against the NSR, engaging in naval warfare against this escorts. Despite this efforts from himself and the slaves, the ship sunk into the ocean, seemingly killing him and the slaves. However unbeknownst to the NSR escorts, James was visited by an mermaid-shaped being and had an deal with him which allowed the resurface of the Shallow Depths along with the slaves. The Shallow Depths having been empowered by the mermaid, was able to take out the two NSR escorts before fleeing from the area. James knew he can't return, but one of the former slaves came to him, asking if the ship should be renamed and he thought of "Endeavour", a word for "effort" which the ship as endeavoured enough.
At some, he was captured and branded as an pirate by the NSR and sentenced to death by hanging. How he escaped is left to interpretation but he said the prison guards had foolishly given the keys to a dog which prior betraying the NSR, was quite friendly towards him and was able to unlock when the dog gave him the key. This was also the time he took the dog with him as he escaped.
