Jim tried to parent Project, although the attempt ended up being half-hearted. Project was a tough toddler according to Jim. He was traumatized by being stuck on a bed for days and then being left alone on Deadgrass Isle. Project turned out to be a vampire, just like his father, which kind of surprised Kevin, since he didn't expect it to be hereditary.
Project unfortunately died of sun exposure, not affecting Jim at all. To replace Project, Jim bit a look-alike in a yoga class, but he forgot about the look-alike. The Project look-alike later became a part of and died in Jim's tiny home.
