Jim Gregory appeared as a minor character in the three part episode arc "The Tale of the Silver Sight".

History[]

Jim is the daughter of Mr. Gregory & Mrs. Gregory as well as the brother of Peggy. His Grandmother was Eleanor Gregory, who was a founding member of the original Midnight Society.

When his Grandmother passed away, his parents inherited his Grandmother's mansion and mass fortune. Shortly afterwards he and his sister were born. Gradually the consequences of the bad choices and decisions his Grandmother made came back to haunt he and his family. Eventually he and his family lost their mansion, most of their money and cars. So he and his family resorted into living in hiding inside the sewers beneath their old estate. This was the only place to keep them hidden from the authorities, debt collectors, bookies and loan sharks who they still owed or had borrowed money from.

He and her family lived in an area in the sewers that was laden with mousetraps everywhere, while trying to keep a happy disposition. He kept up his spirits by exercising and staying fit. He enjoyed going for long jogs around the sewers. His sister became very shy and quiet. His father on the other hand had become a very anxious, stressed and paranoid person. His father was not only worried that their enemies and the authorities would eventually find them, but also that they would eventually encounter The Silver Sight. The Silver Sight was an evil magical charm that was capable of granting ones any wish or desire. His Grandmother and her friends all used it years ago. His Grandmother had used it to win big on the stock market. But the charm turned out to be evil and could harm and destroy innocent people. Also it was what caused his Grandmother's luck to eventually turn bad.

Then one day in the year 2000, his sister had gone up to the surface to get some fresh air. Then Megan followed her down into the sewers. Here she met her parents. He was instantly taken with her and developed a crush on her. Then his parents proceeded to invited Megan to join them for tea.

Then his father got furious when Megan informed his father that she only visited them to ask about the Silver Sight. His father got furious and kicked Megan out. Years before his grandmother and her friends: Gene, Laing Candle, Donna Tilton and Bruce McGorrill each kept a clue as to where the Silver Sight had been hidden. The clues were written on pieces of a broken record. The piece his Grandma had said: "It's a race that has no winners".

Before Megan returned to the surface and left, he caught up with her. He agreed to help her and give her the record piece. Not only because he liked her, but because he knew that if the Midnight Society could destroy the Silver Sight, it could help he and his family. Since he definitely did NOT enjoy living inside the sewers. So he asked Megan to come back a little later after his father had calmed down.

Then a short while later, his family had another surprise visitor. It was his Grandma's old friend Laing Candle. Laing Candle didn't stop by to join them for afternoon tea. Laing came by demanding that he and his family give him their clue to tracking down the Silver Sight.

He didn't have time to wait and give the record piece to Megan. So he and his family all ran off, because Laing Candle threatened to report to the authorities where they had been hiding. But before he and his family left, he left the clue behind in an envelope hoping that Megan would find it. Which she luckily did.

Eventually the current Midnight Society destroyed the Silver Sight, when Gary made the wise and right choice of using it on The Evil Demon itself who was in charge of the charm. However it is unknown, if he and his family's luck ever changed and improved for the better.
