An uncharted island? Let me list all the ways you're going to die. Rain, heat, mud, disease carrying flies and mosquitoes. Sure, you could load up on the atabrine for the malaria, but what about the other bacteria? We haven't even started on the things that want to eat you alive. „

James Conrad is a character created by Legendary Pictures who made his first appearance within the 2017 MonsterVerse film, Kong: Skull Island.

Description

A British SAS officer sent to Vietnam to teach jungle warfare and survival techniques to American troops, as the war comes to an end, Conrad becomes something of a lost and disillusioned soul. Recruited as a tracker by Bill Randa, Conrad’s raw courage, survival skills and understanding of nature could represent the expedition’s best shot at making it off the island alive. „ 

— Warner Brothers website description.[1]

History

Kong: Skull Island

Conrad was hired by William Randa as a tracker for an expedition to Skull Island.

​Trivia

  • In the novelization, it's revealed that Conrad's cynical demeanor stems from an incident where he failed to save a kidnapped seven-year-old girl named Jenny who was killed by a sniper along with two of the five men under his command. In an interview, Tom Hiddleston says Conrad's close encounter with Kong reveals his unconscious desire for redemption for that failure. [2]
  • Writer Dan Gilroy originally wrote Conrad to be "a guy whose unit was attacked by a monster in Vietnam, driving him to go in search of it, and instead of being approached at the bar and being given a job, Conrad would have wanted to be part of the mission."[3]
