Raynor is a legendary freedom fighter, leading his band of men across the sector on jobs to overthrow Emperor Arcturus. He started off as a young farm boy who joined up with the Confederate military back during the Guild Wars. Showing an immediate aptitude for leadership (Command, Natural Leader) and good aim, Raynor rose through the ranks on the blood of his enemies, but was eventually framed by the corrupt powers that be. 

Years later, after his friend turned himself in so Raynor could escape, he found himself the Marshall of a town on the backwater world of Mar Sara. Always quick on the draw with his trusty revolver (Quick Draw) and his aged CMC-225 armor, he ended up assisting the rebel extremist Arcturus Mengsk, eventually leaving his organization due to bitter feelings over Kerrigan's fate.

Strong, both in will and in muscle, he eventually started his own rebel group to fight the oppressive government Arcturus established. He has become an even better leader, and (as the face of the organization) has learned to be a rather Charismatic fellow.

With his armor or without, James Raynor is not a soldier you want to run into on the battlefield.
