Personality and traitsEdit
James has contributed much to strategic defense aspects of the CENTINELS organization through his research in electrical engineering and applied action potential mechatronics, including contributing to the development of a central “mother computer” known as Mother Platinum, the development of the power enhanced CENTINEL-Suits, and designing the flying warship Virgin Victory.
From his days as a research assistant, Shirogane distinguished himself with proposed applications of his new theoretical energy source, the Shirogane Drive. His success continued, as, after two Earth Defense Wars, he finally succeeded in finishing a third generation CENTINEL-Suit made from high density bio-metal fiber.
The prime example of someone whose hobby has become his work, Shirogane spends his days shut-in his laboratory researching new technology. He hasn’t abandoned his hobby entirely though, as Shirogane also has created several peculiar inventions that have nothing to do with his work with the CENTINELS.
Among the team, his down home southern hospitality has earned him the affectionate nickname, “Jimmy”.
As a brilliant scientist, he is treated as a living legend by everyone within CENTINELS, with the exception of the insolent Wonder-Green, who prefers calling him “geezer.” He has been around since the start of the war 40 years ago, and he is still developing new technology to fend off the GEATHJERK. His expertise is sure to be of the utmost importance during the current battle as well.
- Shirogane is neutrally shown that his hair forms into a question mark. Onto his excitement, his hair shifted into an exclamation mark.
- James' surname, Shirogane, literally translates as "white coin", but is primarily translates to "platinum"; this keys a striking connection to Platinum Games.
