F.E.A.R. 2: Project OriginEdit
Early in the game, Fox reports having seen a woman crying, and attempts to help her. Sometime later, he is heard over the COM again, tearfully exclaiming that "they took her babies and they didn't even let her hold them."
Upon finding Fox in the Harbinger Facility, Michael Becket is attacked by the enraged soldier, who has undergone a startling change in personality. Fox snarls and tells Becket to "stay away from her, she's mine," slamming him against the wall. A second later he reels back, clutching his head, and then looks at Becket with confusion and exclaims "Becket?" Whispering is heard around Fox as he struggles to regain his former personality and free will. He is then killed by Alma Wade, the woman whose crying he had been hearing, his flesh literally torn from his bones as Alma screams in rage.
It is revealed that Fox was a Harbinger candidate and had a wife and seven-year old daughter. Interestingly, his daughter's age seems to match that of Alma when she was put into an induced coma as part of Armacham Technology Corporation's secret Project Origin. When Fox reels back in pain after attacking Becket, Alma is heard whispering "You came back," then "He's back!" suggesting that she mistakes Fox for her father. She then begins screaming "I hate you!" repeatedly as she kills Fox, due to her confusion and strong hatred of her father. The Armacham Field Guide supports this, saying that Alma may be dangerous to Fox due to his devotion to his daughter, combined with Alma's "daddy issues."
- Fox is the lowest-ranking member on the team, despite his length of service.
- James Fox is the first victim to be killed by Alma's psychic powers while Michael Becket witnesses the murder.
- Corporal Fox's death can be seen in both the demo and the actual game; the location that this event takes place is different though.
- In the demo, his rank is incorrectly shown as Sergeant.
- Fox and Manuel Morales are the only members of Dark Signal whose pictures don't appear in the achievements/trophies.
- ↑ Fox will be interesting to watch. His file shows him to be a devoted father. I want to see if Alma picks up on that since she has no shortage of daddy issues. If so, we may have to exclude any future candidates with families. Armacham Field Guide
