Background/History: Jim Goose one of a number of Main Force Patrol officers operating in the state of Victoria in south Australia. Full of life and laughter, he’s seems to be a personification of the Aussie adage “she’ll be alright.” He’s also Max Rockatansky’s closest friend and occasional patrol partner.
Personality/Motivation: Known as “the Goose” or “Gosling One” (his call sign with the MFP), Jim seems to take life at full-throttle, never holding back or slowing down. At the same time, he’s a dedicated officer with a strong sense of right and wrong, and utterly looses his cool (and temper) when Johnny the Boy walks after no one shows at his trial.
Quote: “Scag! He sings and I tap dance!”
“Don’t write off the Goose until you see the box go into the hole.”
Powers/Tactics: A highly skilled biker, Jim manages to survive two rather nasty crashes with little to no injuries (although he breaks his leg laying his bike down early in the film... an example of his Unluck is my guess). He’s also rather handy with a nightstick, somewhat of an acrobat (he does a nice roll over the hood of a car to get to his bike at one point), and has a certain degree of charm with the ladies.
In case of violence, Jim’s armed with a Smith & Wesson Model 28 in a crossdraw holster, a short nightstick, and a set of handcuffs.
Appearance: Jim Goose is of average height (slightly taller than Max), with a strong, lean build, short blond hair, and is clean shaven. Like all MFP officers, he dresses in black driving "leathers", consisting of a heavy jacket, pants, and boots over a simple gray t-shirt. To this he adds a silver open-faced helmet with a clear face-shield and plastic forearm guards.
Designer's Notes: Jim is also from the classic cult film Mad Max. He meets his end at the hands (and matches) of Johnny the Boy mid-way through the film and helps spark Max’s desire to leave the Force. You can make him a more realistic character by removing his extra PD versus vehicle crashes or make him more powerful by increasing his Combat Skill Levels.
