James "Ghost" St. Patrick is the main protagonist of the series Power. He is the owner of a popular New York nightclub named Truth.


James St. Patrick was born in Queens, New York and was raised by his father who had his own club which inspired James of wanting his own club. At some point, James stopped a couple of jerks from beating up Tommy Egan who was picked on due to his race and the two became close friends sticking up for each other ever since.

At another point, James' father died causing him and Tommy to start selling on the corner for Kanan and Breeze in their original hometown South Jamaica Queens. He soon started by the nickname "Ghost" as he became so professional in selling that he disappeared before the police could spot him. He met Angela Valdes (his childhood sweetheart) in high school where also Tommy attended, while Ghost and Angie were together her family hated Ghost and then Angie went away with her family and Ghost never got a chance to see her again.

Breeze was a strong street leader but wasn't too smart. His decisions put Kannan, Tommy, and Ghost in danger. While still in High School Ghost came up with a plan to kill Breeze. Ghost and Kanan crept into Breeze's apartment while he was watching Jeopardy. Ghost then killed Breeze. With Breeze dead, Kanan became the boss Ghost and Tommy worked the corners for Kanan.

As a young adult, Ghost met and ended up marrying Tasha having three children with her. Ghost had plans to expand his business but Kanan would not go for it and was his main obstacle in his plans of moving forward. Kanan was a young hotheaded drug dealer was content with what he had.

This caused Ghost to wonder what to do about him as Tasha told Ghost to kill Kanan but he loved him too much like a big brother to do so and instead put Kanan in prison with Tasha aiding him in the act.

Now free to fulfill his plans, Ghost and Tommy used all the money they made on the drug corner to buy parking lots and then laundry-mats. Ghost then fulfilled his plan to open a night club, which was the dream Ghost wanted for years. Whereas Tommy only wanted it to clean their drug money.
