James Macleod is a character in 80 Days. He is a Mounted Police officer in Winnipeg.

Background[edit | edit source]

Macleod is a well-respected staff sergeant. He is responsible for new recruits such as Alfred.

Role[edit | edit source]

While walking around Winnpeg, Phileas Fogg and Passepartout encounter a riderless horse barreling down their street at full gallop. Quick reflexes manage to save the pair from any harm as the horse continues its mad dash through the city. A new ground shaking rumbling alerts the men to a posse of Mounted Police led by Macleod, who stop to ask some questions about the whereabouts of their missing horse. It seems a new recruit, Alfred, is a bit scared of horses and let the creature escape his control. Macleod introduces himself to Passepartout and asks them about what they're doing in Canada. When he learns of their wager he will helpfully point out some possible routes back to London before riding off again in hot pursuit.

Alternatively, Passepartout can attempt to grab the horse's reins and ride the beast himself, resulting in an hour long ride through Winnipeg, during which Passepartout has no control over the horse. It only ends when the horse tires itself out and Macleod's brigade can finally catch up, only to accuse Passepartout of horse theft and throw him in jail for the night.

Character[edit | edit source]

McLeod is described as blue-eyed and friendly, tactfully asking the pair to forgive Alfred's nerves.
