Trapfinding: James can detect traps with a DC over 20 as if he were a Rogue.
Awareness: Whenever James passes within 5 feet of a secret or concealed door he is entitled to a search check to notice it as if he was actively looking for it.

James can also make an active spot and listen check once each round as a free action instead of a move action.

If James beats the DC of a listen check by 5 or more he can determine the size, speed and direction of the source of the noise. If he beats the DC by 10 or more he can also determine the precise currrent position of the creature or object that made the sound. If he beats it by 15 or more he can determine the type of armor it wears and what it carries, if anything. If he beats it by 20 or more he can determine the creatures type and subtypes. This applies to both standard and opposed listen checks.

Swift Stealth: James doesnt take penalties on Hide and Move Silently checks when moving up to his normal speed, and only takes a -10 on such checks when running.
Shadowy Figure: James is always considered to be taking 10 on hide and move silently even while walking around normally, unless he wants to be seen or heard. The DM must make opposed spot and listen checks for any NPC's to be aware of the James' presence. While in any sort of terrain, whether natural or not, James may use the Hide skill even while being observed.
Flawless Stride: James can move through any sort of terrain that slows movement (such as rubble, undergrowth, overgrown areas, natural thorns, briars and similar terrain) at his normal movement speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment. He may also run and charge over difficult terrain that normally slows movement or allies or neutral characters blocking his path. This ability enables him to run down steep stairs, leap down from a balcony and tumble over tables to get to his destination.
Skill Mastery: James is so certain in the use of Listen, Spot, Hide, Move Silently, Search, Disable Device, Open Lock and that he can use them reliably even under adverse conditions. When making a skill check with one of these skills, he may take 10 even if stress and distractions would normally prevent him from doing so. James may also take 10 on climb and jump checks because of his final feat.
