I and Am are twin bounty hunters who only appeared in the episode "The Princess and the Bounty Hunters".

Biography

I and Am are twin Siamese cat like humanoids that talk in the same monotone voice, often finishing each others sentence. Do to the nature of their almost perfect coordination a rumor was spread which claimed that the two of them shared the same mind.

They, along with other bounty hunters, told their plans of claiming the bounty on Jack by disarming the samurai of his sword and finishing him with mines thrown from above the sky. But princess Mira pointed out their flaws in their plan, but complimented their plan for being on the right path. When princess Mira reveals to the bounty hunters of her plan to join forces, Am was put on the lookout for Jack while I was digging traps with the rest of the bounty hunters. After finishing the trap I was taking an "catnap" when Am informs his brother, via telepathy, that "He's coming." Am immediately warns the other hunters and begins covering their snow tracks. Am hides in the woods while I hides in on of the traps. When Samurai Jack finally approaches the hidden holes I was the first to pop out and using his chain to snatch Jack's sword only for Jack to grab tighter onto his sword, pulls I towards him, killing the hunter with a single sword slash. Am throws the mines at Jack only for him grab them and throw the mines at Boris. Later, Am enraged over I's death lunged at Jack only for Jack to slice into Am, killing the last twin.

Abilities and equipment

  • Telepathy: Both bounty hunters seemed to have telepathy powers, as shown when I was sleeping, Am telepathically told him that Samurai Jack was approaching.
  • Chains: While in combat, I wields Am's chain which he used to snatch Jack's sword. Am wield several mines which he uses to finish off opponents.

Trivia

  • I and Am appear to be an amalgamation between real world conjoined twins Chan and Eng Bunker, and the fictional Lucien and Louis de Franchi. The Bunker twins were a pair of side-show performers who, being of Thai ancestry, became the origin of the term "Siamese Twins." In Alexander Dumas's novella The Corsican Twins, Lucien and Louis were former conjoined twins who, after their separation during infancy, could feel each others feelings and pain even at long distances from one another.
