- ―James Reaper to Nicholas Angel
James Reaper is a farmer in Sandford. He is first seen when Nicholas Angel is introduced to the Neighbourhood Watch Alliance. He calls and complains about Arthur Webley cutting down his hedges. Later, when it is revealed that the Neighbourhood Watch Alliance are murderers, Nicholas re-enters the town through the country. While out in his lands, Nicholas attacks him, crashing into his jeep and breaking his radio. James calls for his mum, but is punched in the face. James' mum shoots at Nicholas with a shotgun, but Nicholas jump-kicks her in the face. Both are tied up while Nicholas proceeds into town.
