James Leonard Davis, also referred to as Tango-Tango Alpha One or Codename: JUPITER, was a TROJAN-II super-soldier, and the leader of the second generation Team Alpha. The eldest son of Edwin Clyde Davis and Lisa Raené Davis neé Redson, James was raised in an Office of Naval Intelligence Orphans of Soldiers Hospital due to his parents inability to raise him themselves. At the age of seven, James and several other children of TROJAN operators were abducted by ONI's Project CONSEQUENCE and taken to a base on be trained into a special warfare team of super-soldiers.
Over the next few years, James would learn the art of war and how to work together with his teammates, with the team's first mission coming in the form of Luna's defense during the Battle of the Sol System in 2552. Several years later, the team was officially deployed on several missions against Covenant splinter factions, including a fateful encounter with the Hydra parasite at Ceres in 2556. During the Rebuild Era, Team Alpha would become fairly inactive, but would engage in several battles against rogue factions from both the UNSC and the Covenant, including one that included SpecWar Team PUMA, a VOLSUNG Initiative team that included James' brother John Davis, as well as his cousins Ruth and Rachel Davis.
James would meet his final fate alongside the rest of his teammates during the end of the 2580's, when the Precursor beast Nogard reappeared and attacked the UNSC's Outer Rim, the creature searching desperately for enigmatic Precursor artifacts known as Crucibles. After the deaths of PUMA's members at Facility-13, Team Alpha, the Lance of Unrelenting Reparation and several other elite groups assaulted Nogard's fortress on Ignito Prime alongside a large army of UNSC forces. In the end, the demon creature was killed and his threat ended, but only at the cost of many valiant soldiers, including James and all of Team Alpha.
James, like the other children of the members of Team Alpha and Dragon Squadron, spent the first ten years of his life on Mars in the city of New Dallas.
Operation: E PLURIBUS UNUM
- "Out of doubt, out of dark, to day's rising
I came singing in the sun, sword unsheathing
To hope's end I rode and to heart's breaking
Now for wrath, now for ruin, and a red nightfall!"
- ―James at the beginning of Operation: E PLURIBUS UNUM, quoting The Lord of the Rings
- "I didn't choose to be in Team Alpha, though they say I did. I would have had to whether I wanted to or not. I'm the only person that could possibly lead this group. Everyone else would have left after hour 1"
