Bill Sullivan was a scarer whose performance received a lot of appraisal. In his personal life, Bill had a son, who he named James.
When James P. Sullivan introduced himself in Professor Derek Knight's class at Monsters University, he sparked a lot of curious chatter, as well as praise from Professor Knight. Due to Bill's esteemed reputation, good performance was expected from James, and though he did not live up to those expectations during his first semester, and, despite proving himself capable, and later being kicked out of Monsters University for cheating in the Scare Games and going to the Human World to help his friend, James ultimately redeemed himself and became a well-renown scarer, the best, like his father many years later at MI.
