JIMMY WATSON - CHARACTERS
His mother, Marion, teases her son about his dreams to build a large robot ant with a
drawing of her son riding on the ant's back. Then it comes true.
Jimmy Watson is just an ordinary boy. He attends an ordinary school in Hailsham. He is a loner with just a few friends, and quite a few enemies. He often wanders off into a world of his own in classes, not listening to his teachers fully, on those occasions. Although he truly admires his science master, and loves physics and maths lessons. And especially metalwork, when he gets to make things in steel and other exotic materials. Learning all about cutting, joining and even hardening methods. Another world of wonder.
Jimmy's special talent is programming. He was taught that at school quite early on. Then, could not stop himself reading books on the subject. He was always in demand in teams for robot competitions; the only time he was popular at school. With his programming, and provided the robot was sturdy enough, his team would nearly always win.
Jimmy would study anything on robotics from cover to cover. Sometimes, under the covers by torchlight, or on his laptor. In the town library, he would always check out for any new books on animatronics, and mechatronics. His favorite subjects.
Then one day in the covers of a robotics magazine, Jimmy saw a kit for a really large hexapod, designed for developers of artificial intelligence.
He could not afford it. But determined to work hard and save enough money to be able to buy a DIY kit.
As he saved every week, he crossed his fingers and made a wish. He asked Santa Claus that if he did manage to build his dream project, that the dinobot would become his special friend for life.
Up in the North Pole, a very large man in a red suit and hat, had heard this wish many times. Making a mental note, that if this ordinary boy from an ordinary school, managed to save enough money and build his robot, that he should pay the boy a visit.
Jimmy knows that Santa Claus is not real. He is an invented character that his mother and father, Marion and Tim, liked to pretend had delivered his presents on Christmas Eve, to make the cold winters more fun. Even so, Jimmy wishes for Santa's help at Christmas.
