First Appearance: Chapter 3, Page 3

Sir James Eglamore is a sports teacher in the Court and Kat's 'Uncle Jimmy', although he is not, in fact, related to her but is a close friend of her parents who she treats as such. He has been knighted by the Queen of England and is the current Protector of the Court.

Eglamore succeeds the previous Protector of the Court and his mentor, Sir Thorn. He's known to enjoy sword-fighting; he teaches it and is evidently known as a dragon slayer. In addition to this he was friends with Sivo, a Rogat Orjak, before Sivo's body was possessed by Reynardine.

He seems to have a special relationship with Jones.

It is also known that he was previously in a relationship with Antimony's mother Surma during their own school days, prior to Surma's marriage to Anthony Carver. It is unknown when or why the relationship between Surma and Eglamore ended.

References throughout the comic, such as Eglamore retaining a pen knife given to him by Surma, suggest that he retains strong feelings of affection towards Surma.

There is a traditional folk song called "Sir Eglamore" that is about a knight fighting a dragon (a la Eglamore and Reynardine in Sivo's body). Kate Rusby, who is credited by Tom Siddell as the inspiration for Antimony's accent sings a version of this song as well as a song called Annan Waters.

Running Gag: Pages on which Eglamore appear often have an author's comment which helpfully inform the reader that the man in the pictures is Eglamore - "that guy".
