Jama was a resident of North Village and considered a troublemaker. Jama was friends with Zink and Potipher. All three were known to use their talents to prank unsuspecting villagers. On one occasion, an unknown number of years before Bink's 25th birthday, the three almost killed Bink while intoxicated on locoberries. After recovering, Jama got a private lesson on the power of the fist.
Jama, along with his friends, tried to chop down Justin Tree in the year 1042. He used his talent to cause physical harm to Justin. For his role in attacking Justin, the North Village Elders put him under a mortification spell. They were also known to use their talents to cause mischief for the nearby centaurs.  He was finally sent to the Brain Coral's Pool for his pranks. He later escaped in Up in a Heaval and had to be retrieved by the centaur Epi.
Jama's talent was the ability to create a physical magic sword, capable of doing real harm. He could manifest more than one sword at a time.
