"Integrity. Honesty. Loyalty."

— James Amber's campaign slogan

James Amber is the father of Rachel Amber and a local district attorney. It was revealed that the game's story is about Chloe Price and Rachel Amber uncovering a "dark family secret"[1].

Biography Edit

You can't trust normal people. Just ask Rachel. Her dad seems like the most "normal" guy on the planet, but he also turns out to be a cheating dickwad. Come to think of it, maybe that is normal?

What sucks is that Rachel and her parents actually seemed to get along really well before. James is the new Distric Attorney in Arcadia Bay, which is the reason Rachel's family moved up here from Orange County. Despite his job, James doesn't act like an uptight law enforcer all the time, unlike some wanna-be father figures I know.

Whatever happens with Rachel's family, it still seems like she really does love her parents. And maybe that's all that matters? I'd certainly rather have a cheating dickwad dad than a dead one.

BtS Character Note James and Rose

Episode One - "Awake" Edit

When Chloe and Rachel are at Overlook Park, James Amber can be seen meeting up with an unknown woman; they embrace, and then kiss.

At the end of the episode, he is seen talking with a cop and Principal Wells, most likely because Rachel didn't come home after school. He pauses to stare at the fire.

Episode Two - "Brave New World" Edit

After the production of The Tempest, Rachel says that every year she gets birthday money--or rather hush money--from him. He doesn't think too highly of Chloe, and what she describes as her "progressive attitude" causes tension between the two and his wife at the dinner table which is eventually stopped by an outburst from Rachel.

Episode Three - "Hell Is Empty" Edit

James Amber likely will appear in the third episode.

Relationships Edit

Family Edit

Romantic Edit
