Jimmy Caine: the profile.

To continue on with my look at what a continuation of the strip would look like, I'd like to present my take on what Dead Guy Junior James Allan Caine would probably be like:

Full Name: James Allan Caine

Age: 6

Birthday: 17 May (three weeks before his namesake passed away)

Likes: T-ball, hockey, light reading.

Dislikes: Thunderstorms, squash, arguing.

Aspiration: To get good grades. To become a fireman. To learn to play the harmonica Mom's friend from up North sent her. Also, to learn why it makes her dread Aunt April.

About Jimmy: Jimmy was born almost two years to the day that his parents proposed and exactly two years after Aunt Deanna claimed to have found an old wedding dress in a crawl space. He's an easy-going little fellow who, while still having something of a tiny rivalry with Francoise for attention, doesn't come close to being the sort of competitive weirdo his mother and uncle used to be. Since he's fairly good at reading between the lines, he's starting to become aware that he's named for one great-grandfather who passed away a month after he was born and another who's in a UN graveyard in Pusan. While he generally tends to accept what he sees around him as being pretty much the way things are supposed to be and doesn't usually make a fuss about things, he sincerely hopes that if he does have a younger sibling, said child has to be a kid sister so he doesn't have to have a sibling named for a train-loving grandfather who sounds like something of a bad person despite the fact that everyone tells him that John was just misunderstood.
