James Quintrell Hudson was a Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps and a former member of Blackwatch. He was a loyal agent to Gabriel Reyes, following every order he was given no matter how morally ambiguous it appeared to be. He was close friends with fellow Blackwatch agent, Jesse McCree.

Sometime after Overwatch's fall, James went into hiding in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was eventually found dead in a hotel room with a razor-sharp playing card in his neck.
