Double Dragon (TV series)Edit

Jimmy is Billy's fraternal twin brother. Although his face is similar to John's, he has blonde hair like his mother. When he was born, the Shadow Master kidnapped him and his mother from the hospital. In order to save Jimmy's life, Marika agreed to enter the Abyss inside the Shadow Dojo. The Shadow Master then raised Jimmy as his own son and taught him to fight and use the powers of the Black Flame. Jimmy became the Shadow Boss and later discovered his twin brother Billy when he began foiling Jimmy's criminal goals. When the Shadow Master attempted to get rid of Jimmy and Billy at the same time, Billy saved Jimmy, and Jimmy turned to the side of good. The Oldest Dragon then appeared at the ruins of the Dragon Dojo and taught the brothers how to transform into the Double Dragons. The Dragon Sword then split into two, giving Jimmy his own sword. Jimmy wielded the Dragon Claw daggers with his brother for a short while and was later given new armor by Kami. However, this armor is blue on the outside rather than red, and instead of wielding his Dragon Sword, Jimmy blasts energy beams (or perhaps flames) from a dragon-looking blaster on his arm.

Jimmy is hotheaded and often speaks more like a street-smart brawler than an enlightened warrior. For instance, instead of "calling upon the Double Dragon" birthmark to guide him somewhere, he will instead order the "scaly one" to "lead us to the butt we wish to kick." Because of his Shadow training, he is somewhat knowledgeable about the Shadow Master's organization and utilizes a more aggressive fighting style than Billy. At times he clashes with other personalities such as Marian or the hacker Megabyte. However, he eventually calms down and befriends those who are on the same side.
