    Arlington Texas 1869:

    A tall man sauntered into Sheriff Tom Roundtree?s office, a relaxed look on his face, a look of a man who had not a worry in the world. The man was tall standing around a good six feet and two inches in height and wore weather beaten clothes, including buckskin leggings that went over the top of his brown leather round toe boots and his white cotton shirt was covered in spots of dirt. Around his waist he wore a 45. Schofield pistol in a
    cross holster and a small knife. The stubble on his face was unshaven, forming a dark shadow on his chin, and it is the same with the man?s dark brown hair that grew down to behind his ears. His eyes were a penetrating grey and looked like they could burn into the soul of the hardest man.

    The Sheriff slowly entered into the office through the door that separated the office from the cell room, where a man was yelling hysterically, obviously still suffering the after effects of the devils brew known as whiskey. The Sheriff exited looking at the watch in his hand for a split second before noticing the man?s presence in the room and being jolted by the surprise.

    ?Jesus Nathan you scared me, you?re sure as hell are good at that ain?t you?? proclaimed the Tom

    ?Naw I?m just light footed that?s all,? said Nathan with a smirk appearing on his face.

    ?Well whatever your excuse?what?ch ya need. Coffee?? he asked as he poured himself some of the black liquid into a metal cup.

    ?Don?t mind if I do.? He said. Sheriff Roundtree brought out another cup and filled it, and then handed it to Nathan. They stood there in silence for a few seconds before Tom spoke.

    ?What?ch ya here for Nate, need something I presume??

    ?You?d be right; I?m looking for people Tom, people for hire. Hoping you?d know a few,?

    ?I do, the saloon down the street would be your best bet. What you need people for hire for? Unless you mean guns for hire. What are you trying to pull Nathan?? Tom asked suspiciously.

    ?Nothin, just looking for some men to go with me up into the Idaho Territory and do some trappin that?s all,? he tried to say as most innocently as he could

    ?Nate are you out of your mind, the Northern territories were trapped out years ago, before the war.? He proclaimed

    ?Trapped out you say, really? Well that?s the first I?ve heard about it. well it wouldn?t hurt for me and my companions to go up there and look, just for the heck of it.?

    ?Your up to something I can see it in your face,? he said eyeing the tall young man standing before him.

    ?What face, oh you mean this face,? he said pointing to his own face, mockingly.

    ?Don?t worry Tom, if I make any trouble, which I assure you I won?t, it will be out of your jurisdiction,? said Nathan as he set down his empty coffee cup on the desk and turned to leave.

    ?Well that makes me feel a heck of a lot better Nathan!? he yelled as the man stepped out the door and shut it behind him.

    ?Well let?s go take a look at this saloon,? said Nathan to himself. He then turned and began to walk up the wooden sidewalks that lined the fronts of the shops along Main Street.

    --------------------------------

    The year is 1869 The War Between the States has been over for 5 years now, but the U.S. is still struggling to get back on its feet. In the East and South, cities rebuild and industries are starting to produce mass amounts of products in order to speed the process of recovery along. Men and boys, boys who have become men from the trauma of war, return to their families. Brothers, fathers and son, relatives from every tie, who once fought each other across the political divide now try to make amends. Yes the country has a rich and promising future. Many Americans proclaim that this was the war to end all wars. But in the West a new war lies on the horizon, a war between a man, a corrupt lawman and his men, and his own conscience.

    Join up for an adventure of a lifetime in this western set in the year of 1867 that centers on Nathan Hawk, a young man who is out on a lifetime quest

James enlisted for the war at the ripe age of 18, since he had his own horse he was immediately put in a calvary regiment. Since this regiment was used solely for the purpose of scouting, Jim learned a lot about the wilderness, tracking, and hunting. He served faithfully and soon got a gruesome education about war. When William Sherman, attacked and burned the city of Atlanta everything that James had known went up in flames. He returned to the charred remains of his home after the war, to listen to the remaining field hands tell the gruesome story about how his entire family was burned alive in their own home, by a Union Captain named Clayton. Parents murdered, sister raped and murdered. And home destroyed, James freed his remaining field workers before setting out west. Since the war he has been a gun for hire/bounty hunter.

    Name: Samuel Hawkins / Golden Devil
    Gender: Male
    Age: 35
    Appearance: Standing at 6?4, 190 pounds of pure survivalist instinct and physiology. He wears his golden blonde hair down to his ears and a small, trimmed blonde beard on his face. His auburn eyes are unflinchingly savage. His neck has a scar from a bullet that grazed too close, and his chest has three bullet holes.

His cowboy hat is also black. Across his chest is a black leather strap holster in an X shape that holds his two S&W revolvers. His black leather holster on his hip holds his Colt revolvers. A dark brown leather strap that comes inside his chaps on his outside leg holds a derringer per leg. A hidden opening in the back of his shirt leads to a leather strap holstering the third derringer beneath his clothing.
    Notable Possessions: Two Colt 1851 Navy Revolvers, Two Smith & Wesson Model 2 Army Revolvers, One Spencer Carbine Rifle, Three Remington Derringers, Confederate Officer?s Sabre, Confederate Bowie Knife, One Golden Palomino Morgan named Dorado, his father?s pocket watch and Marine Corps medals, a preserved tuft of his mother?s hair.
    Miscellaneous: He likes to work, he likes hunting, he likes making money, he likes to drink, he likes fast and loose women, and he likes killing Indians. He dislikes laziness, he dislikes the north, he dislikes African Americans and Indians. His habits include drinking, hunting, fishing, shooting practice. Usually stoic, he has a tell when he gets truly nervous: A vein on his hand begins to pulse uncontrollably. To counter this, he wears gloves usually.
    Backstory: In 1834 Samuel was born to James and Martha Hawkins in what would become Galveston, Texas. Samuel was raised with an immense pride in his country. His father was a military man through and through, having joined the Marine Corp for life. The town that would become Galveston would see many changes through Sam?s youth, growing from port town to Capital to home of the Republic?s Navy. Sam was taught by his mother and father the normal values of southern living, including keeping slaves for chore work around the house. His father was a celebrated officer and was one of the first to jump back into action when the Mexican?s wanted Texas back from the U.S. This war didn?t end well for James, and he was killed in action. Sam was now the man of the house at 12. His mother having to go to work, Sam began to train to begin his own military career, determined for his mother to not be the one taking care of him. Joining the Army at 18, Sam brought his mother with him when he was posted to a unit in North Texas.

    In 1954, however, his homestead was attacked while he was on duty. Returning home, he found his mother raped and scalped while most of his home had been destroyed. All signs pointed to Indian involvement and thus he gained an large hatred for their kind. Having failed to protect his mother, Sam turned his full attention to his military career. He quickly rose in rank until he was a leader in the cavalry when Texas seceded from the Union. Long having resented the United States? involvement in Texas independence, he was fully patriotic to the Confederate States of America and joined in the battles in the West. His unit would move into Indian Territory, where he would first begin exacting revenge against the people who he thought killed his mother. During the war, however, he found himself reluctantly being a part of Stand Watie?s joint forces at Fort Wayne. During the battles in Indian Territory, Watie gained Sam?s respect and he eventually was proud to serve next to the last Confederate General to surrender

    Backstory: As a young brave Red Claw learned the hard way about the white man's government, he and most of his people were given the choice of loosing there homes and moving to a reservation, or being wiped out. Even then he knew that the only way to gain honor for his people would be to drive the white man from Texas with FORCE! He earned his name when he was on a solo hunt(to prove his passage to manhood), and he was attacked by a mountain lion, just as the beast leaped to pounce on him he drove his spear into its abdomen. Using his tomahawk to cleave the pelt and a claw from it, he returned to his village presenting the chief with the Lion's head, and hanging the claw on his war spear where it remains to this day.

He hopes one day his actions will give his people faith, and a reason to unite together in a all out war with the white man. (as it is well known that Comanche's were known as a war tribe that not only fought the white man, but would wage battle with each other, as certain sects of the tribe didn't get along)

    Backstory:

    Sydney Anna Nickerson was born on August 20, 1844 in Virginia to Anna E. Lee and Jack L. Nickerson. Ever since she was young, she has been accustomed to slavery. (Since her parents are Southern aristocrats, she lived on a plantation.) As she grew up, she became smart and clever. Her father was pleased by her cleverness, often bragging that she could run the plantation herself if needed. But due to his friends? persecution, he convinced Sydney to just do things like art, which she took a fancy to.

    Sydney didn?t see the true effects of slavery until she witnessed an old black man whipped to death by an overseer. But that wasn?t the only thing that horrified her. In 1856, she received word of an event called the Pottawatomie Massacre. In an instant she watched Anti-Slavery and Pro-Slavery militia fighting each other in Kansas. Her father (a commander of the USA army) left the plantation when she was 13 to stop the riot. But tragic struck and her father was killed. In two months, her mother died of grief in Sydney?s arms.

    Alone on in a nation that was on the brick of war, Sydney was taken to live with her mother?s father, Robert E. Lee. While she was there, Robert E. Lee witnessed her talent with both the gun and the sword. Interested in this, he trained her, himself. And by 1859, was an excellent fighter with both.

    When the Civil War broke out, she sided with the Confederacy due to loyalty towards family and friends. When Robert E. Lee became General of the Confederacy, he took Sydney with him throughout the war. She was later proven as a worthy scout and soldier in the Confederate arsenal. But shortly after the Battle of Gettysburg, she was captured by a ruthless Union officer named John ?Black Eye? who took in instant pleasure in torturing the young girl including, forcing her to watch him wipe out her friend Jennifer Tsang, her family, and their plantation.

    She would have died if Ulysses S. Grant hadn?t intervened. He had her captors executed. And had his doctor heal her wounds. She did not see her grandfather again until April 10, 1865, at Appomattox Court House, Virginia. After the treaty that ended the war was signed, she was reunited with her grandfather with open arms.

    After the war, things were hard for Sydney. Her friends were gone; the plantation that was supposed to be hers was destroyed. It got so bad that Robert E. Lee ordered his niece to leave the east and start a new life in the west. On the way there, she was waylaid by an Anti-Southern outlaw band. Its leader, Blackjack, whipped her and stole her Grandfather, Robert E. Lee?s cavalry sword after holding her hostage for 90 days. Currently she is 5 miles from Arlington.
