These anger management issues were what got him expelled from school in The Recruit , in which he is recruited into CHERUB following the death of his mother. James has had many girlfriends, notably Kerry Chang and Dana Smith, both fellow agents. He is said to be intelligent particularly at maths but being extremely lazy in school as well.

He secretly shares a relationship with Lauren, later telling everyone that they are going out in The Fall, but in Mad Dogs they decide to be "just friends". Rat is the main agent character in the story Dark Sun. James met Bruce when he had his martial arts test, and has since been on missions with him. Though he acts tough, he sleeps with a blue teddy bear called Jeremy although he denies this whenever it is brought up by saying "it was on a shelf above my bed, and it fell".

He often talks of how much he enjoys brawls and James is often slightly concerned with how twisted Bruce can be toward violence. However, the last line of The General mentions that Kerry and Bruce have had a row and had broken up. He later goes out with Bethany Parker and has sexual intercourse with her, but they break up, too. In Mad Dogs he goes with James in their mission to infiltrate the Mad Dogs football club and is given a black shirt by Zara for his outstanding performance.

For starting a relationship with an active-duty agent and doing so as a CHERUB staff member, Bruce is permanently banned from any further employment by CHERUB and exiled from the organisation for three years, a sentence he describes as "totally worth it" in the epilogue.

She has also appeared in the Aramov trilogy. Shakeel was on basic training with James and Kerry. His father was an asylum seeker from Egypt who died as a result of a heart attack. He excels at team sports, especially rugby, which makes up for his underperformance in academic subjects by CHERUB standards.

He is a good friend of James. He often makes sexist jokes which infuriate Kerry Chang, who then takes it out on James. Shakeel is described as having let himself go by James during New Guard , and now weighs in excess of kilograms.

Nicole started basic training with James and Kerry, but dropped out on her first day, after being told she was too fat. She eventually completed basic training, but was permanently excluded from CHERUB after snorting cocaine in Class A, being resettled on a farm with a foster family.

She has an intense disliking for old people, as her parents and two brothers were killed by a half-blind old man who ran them over but got away with it, because the authorities judged him not as aware of his actions.

He is described as physically fit and good looking. He is known for getting girls, having sex, and then treating them like dirt because he prefer relationships which last for a short time, not long-term, which has led to Kerry Chang labeling him a scumbag for doing so in his profile on the CHERUB website. In Mad Dogs, she almost dies after getting stabbed. She breaks up with her boyfriend Michael in The General when she discovers him cheating on her.

Her brother is Jake Parker, and she obtains her navy shirt at the start of The Sleepwalker.

The Sleepwalker

On board the plane, things take a sudden turn for the worse — something makes a huge noise, and it turns turtle, before righting itself, only to lose height. Elsewhere, a horrendously stereotyped Asian family father all dodgy business and threats of deportation, mother merely subject to physical abuse, covering it up with lies and veils, child a confused and violent loner might also have something to do with the downing of the plane. How everything ties together may well make a great book, but this is not it. It disappoints me to say the escapades at night — some especially difficult training exercise — take us almost halfway through the book.


The next day, Fahim discovers that Yasmin has disappeared. Feeling that the information adds up to a case worth looking into, Mac accompanies Lauren and Jake on a mission to befriend Fahim to obtain information from him.
