Before the quest is completed, Jim stays silent when players attempts to talk to him, and will only stop players from entering the hunting area by saying that the area is restricted. Upon completion, Jim will exchange Kgp agents caught by players using the Hunter skill at the Penguin Hunting Area for 2 extra Hunter experience points.
It's possible that Jim is based on Jim Phelps from Mission Impossible, as both share the same first name and both are secret agents.
Jim is lying in the snow with his front paws covering his nose. This is referring to the widely-held myth that hunting polar bears will cover their noses with their paws so that they will completely blend in with their snowy surroundings.
