James Cole

Aaron Stanford

After surviving the plague and living for years as a scavenger during the apocalypse, James Cole can kick ass when he needs to, but his wits are his primary tool. He's impulsive, bold and brave beyond common sense.  Though coming of age in a time when the basic tenets of society have unraveled, Cole has somehow retained a conscience.  As a Scav, he did what he needed to survive, but now is haunted by his actions.  Cole seeks to fix the past, not only to save billions of lives, but also to earn redemption.
