Story: James Laidlaw was a friend of David Wylie. After David had a stroke, Laidlaw was asked to take care of his children, which he did [3].

When Project: X-O started around '94 it was a military operation with no approval for field use or civilian involvement. Having Donovan Wylie in the armor caused Laidlaw to lie to his superiors to make the project continue [2]. When Diana Hunter, an investigator from INQUEST, discovered that he had lied to his superiors she tried to blackmail him into cooperation in order to get some information on the X-O armor [1]. For a short while Laidlaw considered shooting himself or her but ended up going directly to the president and confess [2].

Laidlaw continued as head of Project: X-O and was still there when the X-O Manowar series ended [4].
