Quick Biography

Eames, also known as The Forger, is an essential part of the secrecy and deceit within the dream world. Eames can project the image of anyone, essentially forging an identity as a literal physical manifestation. The transformation process seems to involve the use of a mirror. This skill comes in handy, and can help convince another person that he’s whomever the team needs him to be in order to aid their deception. He frequently uses a Heckler and Koch USP Compact throughout the first level defending the taxi and city warehouse from projections, a South African MGL grenade launcher and a Sig 552 assault rifle with custom arctic camouflage while planting charges in the hospital. He is portrayed by actor Tom Hardy. He is also seen holding a Beretta 92FS Inox in the poster.
Little is known about his background, but given his accent, he seems to be from Australia. Typist suspects he had a slightly rough and tumble upbringing, and may have been in the military at some point, but suspects he was discharged for discipline problems (nothing serious, aside from being a terrible practical joker and possibly a bit insubordinate). He also appears to be mildly bisexual, given his fondness for punking straight guys while he's forging as a female.

Physical Abilities

Given his familiarity with some fairly heavy firearms, it's possible he's had military or serious security training. Also claims to be an expert at references (which leads one to suspect he might be a Frank Abagnale-like con man who can forge or fake his way into getting into someone's good graces)

Superhuman Abilities

As a dream-sharer, he's an expert at taking on the appearances of another person for the purpose of getting past a subject's defenses: think an impersonator taken to the next level. In the waking world…he's vanilla.

Unusual or Magical Possessions

Will be arriving with his totem in his pocket (fanonically, it is a poker chip weighted on one side)


Average height with a slightly stocky build and a ruddy complexion: often seen somewhat unshaven which adds to his roguish charm. Typically wears his hair slicked back in an early 1960s style, but added to this is a fondness for sand-colored suits and ugly dress shirts worn with the collar open.


Laid-back and easy-going, likable and friendly. Very charming, tends to flirt a bit with most anyone and is fond of teasing people good-naturedly. A definite risk-taker. A prankster who seems to get off on heckling stuffier types (see also: in canon, Arthur; in headspace, Cobb): think of a grown-up and politely criminal version of the class clown.
