My given name is James Charles Two Horses, but I go by Jimmy Dragon. I chose the name after my favorite guitar - a limited Edition Jimmy Paige Dragon Telecaster. I grew up on two different reservations, living with my grandparents, and also my aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family members.
Jimmy is a halfling, being born the son of a human mother and a father who was of the Nunnehi; which is the Iroquois equivalent of the Fae. His father, one of the last of the Oniare or Lake Dragon People that were closely allied with the Mohawk Nation near the Great Lakes and in Canada where the people of Jimmy's mother, come from.
While pregnant with Jimmy, his mother met Jimmy's adoptive father, David Two Horses, a member of the Lakota Nation, who raised Jimmy as his own son. He is also the father of Marianna Two Horses, Jimmy's little sister. Jimmy's mother, assumed father and his little sister were all killed in a car accident involving a drunken driver outside of the Rosebud Reservation when Jimmy was approximately 10 years old. He was left to be raised by his grandparents who live on the Rosebud Reservation and his Aunt Lily, who lives in Canada. It was from his Aunt Lily that he received his first guitar and taught himself how to play.
Jimmy played with several local bands and around the midwest when his demo tape was sent to Caroline de Rochefort who was looking for a new lead guitarist for her band. The international recording star liked what she saw and arranged for him to be flown out to play in Los Angeles.
They say that when a hot guitarist plays any of the clubs on the (in)famous Sunset Strip if he's truly good, he'll be a guitar god before sunrise...and that's exactly what happened to Jimmy Dragon the first night he played in L.A.
In no time, other bands were trying to either steal him or trying to book him to play in the studio. Because Jimmy tends to be laid back, easy to work with and (more than a little) good looking, it makes him even more of a commodity.
Note: James Two Horses, aka Jimmy Dragon, is an original character. He is depicted by images of Billy Wirth and Nuno Bettencourt. I am not either of these people and should not be mistaken for them. I am but a humble writer having fun. All content is original, and any use of or cannon characters falls within fair use.
