James Smith is a freelance private investigator who recently moved to Night City from New York City. He came to Night City specifically because of its sky-high crime rate, which in his line of work, means more work period. Smith is unique amongst private investigators in that he has very few qualms about dabbling in the shadier side of things, seeing it as a necessary evil to stay ahead of the game, especially at his advancing age. Indeed, Smith has occasionally done work for crime bosses just to get by, often stretching the job description of a private investigator in the process. Even more uniquely, Smith specializes in the strange, preferring the cases that appear to be more easily explainable supernaturally, rather than naturally, urban legends and the like.
