Detective James Copper
Detective James Copper is a member of Riverbrook Falls Police Department; specifically, he works in the Unusual Crimes Bureau. The UCB, despite being underfunded and understaffed, is the town’s first (and until recently, only) defense against the various supernatural criminals that plague it. James has served in this thankless job for years, doing what he could to keep the city safe.
Not that it’s been an entirely bad experience. Saving people feels good, and he met his wife through one of his cases. His son, Gordon, is also a source of pride for him, although James wishes that Gordon didn’t involve himself in the dangerous situations he often does. Or rather, that Gordon wouldn’t have to do so. But, again, because the department he works for is an afterthought in the RFPD’s budget, there’s only so much ground he can cover in a day.
