Jim the Winged Turtle was created by Mr. Today and has slow speech. He lives in the forest by Artime and became frozen, though still alive, when Mr. Today died like all his creations. He is revived when Alex performs the Triad Spell after Today's death. He first appears in the first book, The Unwanteds.
Jim is a large, slow tortoise with wings on his colorful, mosaic shell. His head is similar to Shrek's. It is depicted that he is white, having white angel-like wings on the top of his colorful shell.
