Worst enemy: Calamity James's bad luck

Prized possession: A vintage bottle of 1912 Boris Borthwick's Biological Botty Balm, which he has almost used up on James.

Motto: "If it happens to me, it's a tragedy. If it happens to him, it's hilarious!"

Super skill: Plummeting from great and not-so-great heights. Any height, really - it's the plummet that is important

Family: Sadly, they have all successfully plummeted now

Fact: Calamity James's patronus is a lemming, and Alex's is a First Aid Kit!
