— Jigsaw warns Tapp not to cut open the wrong body[src]
In his early life, Jim Aumen was a member of the Happy Thoughts Quartet, a boys' choir, along with Edward Timpe, Francis Pickons and Arney Faulkner. Together, they performed their music in the theater of the Whitehurst Insane Asylum. Their final performance was in November at some point towards the end of the 20th century. (Saw: The Video Game)
Years later, when Jim was grown up, he was targeted by John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer, who abducted him and took him to the Whitehurst Asylum, which had been shut down since then. There, his sedated body lay on a table in an operating room along with the bodies of Tom Robinson and Marvin Johnson, as well as Arney Faulkner, who was already dead. Jigsaw forced one of his victims to cut open Arney's body and to hide a bunch of razor wire as well as a key in his stomach, before he sewing him up again. His corpse and the other three men later became a part of a deadly game which Jigsaw had prepared for Detective David Tapp at asylum. Early on on his way through the hospital, Tapp entered the operational room, where he found the corpse of Arney, as well as the naked bodies of Tom, Marvin and Jim. All four of them were covered with a surgical drape. By using x-rays of their bodies and comparing them with the tags attached to their toes, Tapp had to find out which one of the bodies contained the key, which he needed to progress. Eventually, he identified Arney's body as the right one and cut open his body. After receiving the key, Tapp continued his way and left the four bodies behind. (Saw: The Video Game)
Not much can be said about Jim's personality due to his short screen time.
- While his fate is dependant on the player's choice, his survival is most likely canonical as the use of the x-rays and toe tags made it quite easy for Tapp to find the right body.
