Jim most definitely seems like a real person. He is a slave, and as was prominent during the time period, Jim was uneducated and ignorant of the world around him. He knew his master (mistress), the immediate people in his life, he loved his wife and children, and he dared to face an unknown world trying to reach them. Jim was caring, compassionate, and determined. He's the kind of man that most of us would like to know.
