Backstory Han McGregor: Time For Change

Valentine, New Hanover, January 20th 1898
"McGregor? That's the third bounty this week, keep this up and they'll be giving you my job!"
The sheriff said as he handed over my money - an easy fifty bucks, I have built something of a reputation around these parts, it's not often someone so young survives this long in this line of work, I've been at it for about a year now. Most guys my age get killed hunting their first bounty, mainly because of cockiness, and they think that the key to making it as a good bounty hunter depends on having the biggest and most guns, saw a guy last week who looked like a walking armory - he turned up dead, didn't even make it to his bounty, his horse collapsed from exhaustion halfway up a cliff and threw him off it. I've only been using my father's old Schofields and made it this far, making it in this life relies on knowing how to survive, patience and of course being a good shot.
Maybe it's in my blood, my father was also a bounty hunter and a legendary gunslinger, the Scotsman "Henry-Hailfire" McGregor, the man who single handedly brought down the Brokeback Boys. Some bounties would even turn themselves in when they heard he was on their tail. I still hear his name spoken in saloons, not many believe I am his son until they see me shoot a gun, he taught me how to shoot, ride a horse, survive in the wild and read and write. My mother was a Chinese widow he met when he rescued her from some petty gang of bandits, I don't remember much about her though, she got sick and passed away when I was 5 years old. And I watched my father die when I was 14 years old, We were fishing one morning when he was gunned down off guard by some gang looking for revenge for killing their former leader a few years before, I hope to find those bastards one day.
"I'll see you tomorrow when you bring in Dutch Van Der Linde"
They sheriff chuckled to himself as I left the office. Truth be told I don't like the law, never have, they're just criminals in fancy clothes and a lot of rules that if you don't follow you end up in a cell or at the end of a noose. I shouldn't complain too much though, the guys that don't follow their rules are my main source of income.
I had my fair share of run ins with the law when I was living on the streets of a shithole called St. Denis, I ended up there after my father died, I figured that there's more money to be made there than out by myself in the wilderness with no horse. It wasn't easy, and being a half-asian orphan didn't do me any favours either. My father showed me how to survive out in the wild but the streets of St. Denis was a completely different kind of wild, but I adapted quickly. I was running scams off the streets by the time I was 15 and was doing various odd jobs for crooks just to get by. I wanted to get back out into the wilderness but needed just one thing - a horse, I got lucky when I was 19 when I won a game of poker against some rich drunk french kid, after he had a couple of drinks in him he betted his horse, a Brindle Thoroughbred - a beautiful and rare horse. He obviously didn't care for it though, it looked half starved to death and looked as if it was gonna collapse when that fatass rode on it. Winning was easy - well I may or may not have cheated, but I couldn't let a horse like that die, it's like what my old man used to say "nothing is wrong if you do it with good intentions".
I had a horse, some money, my father's guns and was ready to face the wild frontier and all it's dangers, and with one goal in mind, to be a gunslinger - best in the country. It was shortly after this I found myself bounty hunting, it was the best way for me to get a quick buck without slaving away on some ranch, plus I got to shoot assholes, which is always a plus. But it felt weird for me, I went from being a nuisance to the law to getting paid from them, sure I like getting rid of lowlife crooks but part of this life doesn't feel right.
I want out.
I want to feel free instead of being some hound dog for the law, some of these guys I see on the wanted posters - not the petty, cold blooded crooks I usually hunt, but the real outlaws, who live free by their own rules but still keep their morals and honour, they actually seem like decent guys doing "wrong" things with good intentions, sure they're not angels but living on the streets taught me that you don't get anywhere in this world by being nice and abiding by the law. One of these gangs that I've been hearing a lot about recently is called the De Ruyter Gang, a bunch of misfits and outcasts who have formed a brotherhood of living free, seems like I would fit in well. Could I be like them? Could I be an outlaw? I would go from hunting bounties to being on bounty posters myself, but I don't want to be a lone bounty hunter working for the law my whole life, I need more excitement, more adventure, I could still do what I do now - taking out gangs of lowlifes but with a posse behind me, we'll be unstoppable. Plus I like the idea of taking money from those that don't need it, that bank job they did a month back apparently got them more money than I've gained all year.
Most importantly though, I'll be free... I'm going to go learn more about these guys.
I'm not sure what my old man would think about this, but he wasn't always best friends with the law either, despite his reputation. I guess I can't think about that now, I can't live my life trying not to disappoint a dead man.
According to this bounty poster their leader is a Dutch man called John De Ruyter and he was last seen in Lemoyne, I'll go down to St. Denis and ask around, once I meet him he might need some convincing since I'm a lot younger than these guys appear to be, but that doesn't mean I lack skill, I'll prove myself
I'm going to be free

Avery's Halloween Costume

Morrison and Avery were taken on the last day of September, the year of our Lord two thousand and seventeen.
As the sheriff of a town that had twenty trees for every person, to say we lived in a rural county would be an understatement. Gross understatement. And so goes with quaint, quiet villages: this sort of thing does not happen. Ever.
Their mother called me sobbing, "Sheriff. You got to help me find little Maury and little Avery," saying their names made her sob even harder, I could barely understand what she was saying, "you see, you just got to." I didn’t know her well but I knew her mom some. Hell, I knew just about someone from every family here. And if I'm lying, which i don’t quite think I am, I knew someone who knew someone from that family. We were all connected. One people, one town, one heart. I felt like I knew them all.
And with that same feeling – unity - we took to looking for her boys. The idea that one of my own, a member of my flock - we are God fearing folk don'tchya know - would take another, not just another, but an innocent? Two boys of barely eight and twelve years? Kidnapping? The word didn’t feel right coming out of my mouth. In all my years as sheriff, I never investigated something so sinister. I’ve seen my fair share of violence: bar fights, domestic disputes, boyhood brawls. But nothing sinister. So, suffice it to say, the thought of “kidnapping” came and went like Ms. Butterfries country double fried chicken at the State's Fair held each October.
We were only about 100 feet into the woods when my deputy began his murmuring.
"Them boys have got to be here somewhere," my deputy kept saying to himself. I wanted to tell him to buckle down, but I let him get it out of his system. I wish he wouldn’t think to himself aloud like this, but it was his manner of living and my Lord is it hard to change the manner of a man, especially one as stubborn as my deputy.
We spread out, 15 feet between each man, must've been a hundred of us. Our own Pastor, Father Joseph, led the way, cloaked in white like a beacon of God shining in the orange glow of the evening sun. He held a lantern in one hand and a cross in the other, calling out to the boys. "No one is mad at you, young sons. God forgives all. Just come home to yer Mama. Come out, come home Maury, Avery." His voice carried a sing-song tone beneath the layers of trees that obscured the burning sky above, like a sermon for our weary souls and the shadows that trailed behind us. As the light gave way to a blanket of stars, so too did our hope and patience began to flutter and vanquish.
We covered as much ground as our tired bodies could. The country hills wreak havoc on the joints. No one willingly stopped looking, not until I called it. Mercer even rolled his ankle and kept up a few more minutes, wincing through the pain before his daddy draped his arm about his shoulder and walked him down the rolling countryside of our little Tennessee town.
"That's it? That's all?!" Ms. McCreary said, a storm of tiny fists pounding upon my chest. I pleaded with her to wait behind at the station. She would've driven the men mad, that's for sure. The stress of the whole ordeal had already ravaged her meek frame, leaving her eyes swollen from crying and fingernails jagged from gnawing.
"That's not all, ma'am, you have my word. I will do everything in my power ---"
“In your power? That’s not what you promised before. You promised you’d FIND them.”
How could I respond to her? I did everything in my power, everything I could think of. Hell, I called upon our brothers at the fire house, the sheriffs and their deputies from the neighboring counties, any one and any thing that had eyes and the will to look.
Taken versus lost. Injured versus hurt. Crime versus misunderstanding. Did some sick sumbitch take our little Morrison? Our poor, adorable Avery? Who hadn't yet reached 10 years of youth? Whose cute denim overalls covered all the "Missing" posters? Or did they stumble into a ditch and break a lil limb? Did they pass out somewhere? Were they--- alive? I could dwell, or I could continue putting up flyers, letting the search dogs loose through the woods, and calming Ms. McCreary. So I kept it up, best I could.
On day 3, my deputy confronted me. "Listen here, we should've treated this as a missing persons case from the very beginning."
I barely had a cup of that magic black elixir when he strutted into my office in the uniform I personally picked out for him only 2 years ago. My wife even sewed his name to the front. Real official looking. He was as stubborn as he was arrogant.
"Did you say something, boy?"
He swallowed hard but stood his ground. I could appreciate his vigor, his quiet defiance. His sense of what is right. But may the lord witness the day that I let him address me in as such a condescending temperament as he was displaying in that moment.
I stood from my desk, much to his chagrin. Did he forget that I loomed over him with back straight? We were so close that he actually tilted his head back to look me in the eye, like a man. But he looked like a lost boy.
"We... we should have investigated..." he stammered, desperately trying to remember what the hell he was saying, but fear took ripe hold.
"Then why the hell didn't you?" I inquired in a whisper through gritted teeth.
Don't tell me the bait's rotten just because there aren't any bites.
"I'll start with his classmates," and he was out of my office as quickly as he came.
Good heart. Good intentions. Needs to work on standing up to his father though.
Deputy Lucky," I called out to him. That made him seethe. He also hated "Deputy Junior, "Deputy Sonny," and "Deputy Willy," which is what his momma calls him. That's what she sewed on his jacket the first time, before he threw one of his little tantrums, mini-melt downs she called them.
He looked close to having another. "So what's the plan?"
He didn't look at me, just stared at my chest. I put my hand on his shoulder. "You need to be even keeled, son. If you let me rattle your chains this much, imagine what the bad guys will do to you."
He knew I was right, so he drew in a deep breath, then let it out slow like his momma taught him.
"That's a boy. Now tell me your plan."
"I was gonna start down by the school. Speak with the head master, the boy's teachers, his friends. You know how young'uns are liable to say whatever's on their minds."
Intelligent. Poised. I wonder how he is under pressure? "Son, it pains me to say it, but start with the boy's momma, uncle, cousins. Then work your way back around. Look to see if any of them's squirming when they see you pull up a second time."
"You don't think..."
"You wanna investigate foul play? This is how you go about it. Matter of fact, start with Dale."
He nodded in agreement. Dale was Ms. McCreary's gun totin', hell raisin' half brother. He ran a small crew of bikers. They didn't cause our town much trouble, hanging out mostly at a tavern on the outskirts. I had half a mind to deputize the young man. I could've really used a shot like his. He brought home first place in the State Fair sharp shooting competition every year until his daddy left them, him and the McCreary girl. Now, as mother of Morrison and Avery, she mourns. Anyhow, he moved out then, must’ve still been about 16. Ten years later and I couldn't tell that boy nothing. He wouldn't hear me then, and I doubt he will now. He would've graduated with Deputy Lucky had he stayed in school. Shame, really.
Seeing the deputy question the boy's family was likely to cause a stir around town. But he's doing his job. I'm doing mine. Serve and protect. No one's casting judgment 'til we have all the answers. I still thought those boys were lost amidst the brush and the bush. Hope is a damned thing.
Days went by. Nothing changed. So I paid Dale a visit myself.
"How goes it?" I called out, walking up the gravel driveway to the trio of trailers assembled in a half moon at the back of Dale’s property. About four black Harleys were parked out front. A mean looking man with tear drops under his eyes and black sunglasses peered at me from the seat of his hog. His leather vest was emblazoned with a patch that read 1%. His German shepherd sat faithfully beside him, able to tear me apart at a moment’s notice. Another man raised the blinds of his trailer, revealing himself and a lovely red haired lady on his arm. He shut the curtains after making eye contact with me. His trailer door slammed shut seconds later.
"Dale around?" I asked, palms up to make the peace. "Came to ask about the boys."
"The boy," Dale corrected, closing the rickety metal screen door to his trailer and wiping black grease from his hand with what once might've passed for a towel.
"What do you mean by that?" I asked, arms folded.
"Ain't no way they're both alive right now, strolling through these here trees," he said, turning and facing the tree line that flooded the horizon behind the trailers. "You'd be lucky to find just one at this point." His white tank top was covered in grease stains. It looked like they were repairing of their bikes before I interrupted.
"Do you know something I don't?"
"That’s just my guess. But, yeah, I know lots of things you don’t, Sheriff. And I, unlike you, ask the right questions. But your boy? Better keep’em in the office before you send him back here. Throwin’ round false accusations and such," he spit on the ground near my feet. My deputy never did tell me what he learned when he asked around. I was too busy with the search.
"I reckon you had your own search of these woods."
"I did."
"And if you found something of material value, I reckon you'd share that."
"Share? Now wait here just a minute. Share? Like how I shared what I told you about them aliens? Like how I shared what I knew about the federal cover up?"
"How do you listen to this," I asked Dale's friend, who didn't move a muscle. It wasn't the first time I heard Dale ramble about aliens or ufos.
"Look. I'm not here for the conspiracy theories, Dale. We had a search team go out when your dad left."
"Newsflash, Sheriff. My father didn't FUCKING leave. So you can FUCK right off. You did all you could, just like you’re doing all you can now. Which ain’t SHIT. Unless you have a warrant you're trespassing," and with that, Dale's man revved up his engine, drowning out my protest.
I left with the motorized cacophony at my back.
I remember when Dale's father left them. Hated the man for that. We played poker together some nights at the firehouse. They had a little tournament there about once a month or so. His ex wife, Dale's momma, hated him. But from what I knew he was happily living with Ms. McCreary's and Mrs. McCreary, and he took Dale out sometimes. Bought him his first gun, if I remember correctly. Didn’t seem the type to leave, no, abandon his own.
I was thinking about Dale and driving aimlessly about the town, and I still had hope for finding the boys - plural - until I got the call. "You're going to want to see this for yourself," Mr. Raymond, the owner of the local hardware store said. They had been searching all morning when the news made its way to me.
October 13, 2017. My last full night of sleep without screaming.
I expected to see a crowd, but there was only Mr. Raymond, our Father, two of the local volunteer firemen, and my son. Father had his eyes closed, and he was praying and praying and praying, sliding each rosary bead across his fingers. Sounded like he was speaking Latin. The firemen and my son knelt before him, arms around each other. I thought I heard my son whimpering into his chest. He wasn't religious.
I could smell the vomit on Mr. Raymond's breath. He looked a little greenish in the face. "Come this way," he beckoned and I followed a few dozen feet into the brush to a clearing where Mr. Raymond's leather bomber covered the upper torso and face of what looked like the body of a young boy.
"I didn't want to tamper with any of this, its evidence and such and such. But i could not look upon him for one more second. None of us could. Your boy I don't think has the stomach. Well I'm not one to talk. Its like this, see. We thought it was an animal. But the eyes, Rick." Mr. Raymond was sick again.
I walked to the motionless body and knelt before it. Before I looked, I slid my hand over to where the neck would be to feel for a pulse I expected my finger to press against bone or flesh but once against the skin, my finger pressed into skin and jabbed through to the cold earth beneath. I looked at my hand. Red. Red all over. Confused, I lifted the jacket to see little Maury. His skin lie on the ground before me. Deflated. Red and swollen. Flayed. The teeth were still there. White teeth doomed to grin for eternity. Maury's one missing right front tooth. I recognized it from the posters. No eyes. That was the worst of it. No eyes. Two bottomless black pits where the eyes should’ve been. No eyes. I stared into them. No eyes. There was nothing there. God was not here. I sat Indian style and lifted what was left of the boy by his shoulders, and sat him in my lap, forgetting all protocol. The head immediately slumped back, folded over. "This could've been my boy, any of our boys," I thought.
"This. This was no animal. How could it be?" I asked him, the boy's limp body now cradled in my arms.
Back at the station my son James continued crying softly. Broken, now. My wife Susan was giving me hell.
"Are you trying to break him? Is that what you meant when you said you’d make a man of him? Look at him! Look at this man you've made. And for what. You're breaking him. He isn't cut out for his, Rick, God damn it look at me."
But I couldn't. And then I heard the wailing cries of Ms. McCreary as she burst into another fit of hysteria, which she was liable to do every fifteen minutes or so. Her wail loomed throughout the halls of the old building, reminding me that this Sheriff's Headquarters as we so nobly called it, was just a building, and the man dressed from head to toe in the uniform of a Sheriff's deputy, was still just a boy. The pain of losing Ms. McCreary's first born son was unbearable, for her, for the town, for all of us.
Before Susan could tear into me again, I took her and James up in my arms and held them so close to me. I kissed each of their foreheads softly, tears marching down my cheeks in droves. Susan's nails dug into the flesh of my back before she let go, defeated, falling to her knees. I let them both fall into my waiting arms and held them tighter than I could ever remember. And we all cried with Ms. McCreary for her son.
The town was not the same after that.
"What the hell is capable of doing that?!" Someone yelled in the movie theater we commandeered for a town meeting. About a hundred angry folk stood demanding answers.
"Where is the other boy?"
"Where is Ms. McCreary?!"
“Yeah! Where is she? Is she okay?”
"Are any of us safe?"
“What are you doing to protect us?”
People were uproarious from the moment I called the meeting to order.
James shot a round into the floor and everyone simmered down.
"We have been searching non-stop since we found the uh" I paused not wanting to say 'body'. "Morrison. No other clues, no other leads."
"Halloween is tomorrow and something is out there!" One angry mother yelled.
"I hear you. We hear you," I said looking at James. "At this time, we have no reason to suspect foul play. The evidence doesn't support that."
"No fucking clue how to do your god damned jobs," someone yelled. The rabble rousing started again. James only had to raise his gun to stop it this time.
"Cancel Halloween!" Someone else suggested.
"There is no reason why the children should not go on trick or treating tomorrow as usual. I encourage, as I have each and every year, a parent chaperone. We will authorize a number of volunteers to monitor and patrol the streets for this one night, and we will set a curfew at midnight to help control the shenanigans."
"Form a line to my left if you'd like to volunteer." Damn near the entire room lined up.
The next day the town appeared calm on the surface. But there was tension, for sure. The people hastily decorated: pumpkins were carved into jack o'lanterns, white plastic skulls hung from tree branches, straw was stuffed into old denim to make straw men sitting on bales of hay. Kids took to the streets earlier than usual, which I expected. We received far fewer calls about teenagers with eggs and toilet paper. We got a few, but far fewer than in years past. I barely gave the troublemakers a talking to. "Be safe!" I bellowed at them before releasing them back into the dread of night. Halloween looked normal, but the town was on edge.
The trick-or-treaters were already heading home when I got a call from Dale himself. "Well I never thought I'd see the day," I said softly to myself as I let the bluetooth of my pickup take the call.
"Sheriff. Come to the tavern. You know the place. And tell me why your deputy has his gun pointed at my head." The line went dead. I nearly ran over one of the little trick-or-treaters as I sped over to the biker bar.
I announced myself and proceeded into the bar with gun drawn. "Dale?" I called out. No response. Inside, the bar was deserted. The floor was sticky and the smell of spilled beer penetrated my nostrils. Not a soul loitered where loud and rowdy were the norm. I took the first step downstairs near the back of the bar. I could see dim light emanating from a solitary light bulb, dangling from its cord near the staircase.
"Dale?" I called out again.
"Down here, Sheriff. Nice and slow."
I took the next step with gun drawn, but pointed at the ground. The room was about 20 feet wide in any direction, mostly used for storage. My son Deputy James stood at one end of the room, shotgun pointed at Dale. Dale stood at the other end of the room with a knife to the neck of a small body, the face concealed by a white sheet, smeared with dabs of red beneath. Two of Dale's men flanked him on either side, guns pointed back at James.
"Okay. Let's just calm down everybody. James, why don't you go ahead and lower your weapon first."
"Dale's got Avery."
"This ain’t Avery."
"Then tell us why you got a little kid in the basement of your bar, Dale?"
"This ain’t fucking Avery!" Dale barked back. His men took a step towards James.
"Okay," I tried again after their exchange. "Everybody hold your horses. How did ---" my stomach lurched as I processed the guns pointed at my son, but I kept my nerve. "How did we get here?"
"We got to patrolling the neighborhood, just like you said. Looking for anything suspicious. Anything out of the ordinary. Everything was mostly fine. Even the hooligans lightened up some. When we came onto this --- this thing?" The man to Dale's right spit on the ground.
He continued, "First off, little kids 'posed to have chaperones today. This bugger's walking around by his self, so I approach. That's when I notice it. He ain’t walking right. He walking mighty funny, see? Like... like imitating what a boy walks like. I can't explain it. Sometimes tip toeing. Sometimes feet turned in. Sometimes turned out. Unnatural. Then, I swear to God in Almighty Heaven above I saw it glide."
"I saw it gliding when I called Dale," his man added.
"But what was unholy was the sound. 'What's your name?' I asked. Simple enough. Had a candy bar in my hand too. That was it. Ask either of them. They'll tell you. I was cordial. Formal even. 'What's your name?' It aint human."
"Bullshit!" James said. "I saw them take the boy, toss him in the BACK of their pick up, and come here."
"Bullshit? Then you fucking ask him? You didn't wonder why he aint moving or squirming or nothing. Not crying? That's normal?"
"Simple. It's shock. Right, Avery? Are you scared?" My son asked the child.
At first, the child didn't move. But then slowly its head crept up, then down.
"Looks human to me."
"What's strange about that?" I asked Dale.
"Ask him to say something!" Dale yelled, pressing the knife against its neck.
"You wanna tell us your name, little guy?" I asked.
There was no sound at first, but Dale pressed the blade deeper.
"Dale God damn it, he's a little boy!"
"Go on then," Dale said, "tell them."
What came out of the child's mouth sounded like it couldve been Avery, but it was just garbled sounds and syllables. My stomach dropped. "Care to repeat that nonsense," Dale asked.
After a pause, it spoke again, but no human language was heard.
"Take off the sheet," my son said, still pointing the gun at Dale.
Dale did so quickly, unveiling the now quivering boy without hesitation, then placed the knife back at the boy's throat. The boy clutched at Dale's hands. His breathing was sporadic, forced you might say. The boy wore the mask of a smiling blonde boy with cut outs for the eyes and mouth, like the cheap plastic masks with the flimsy string strap the Quick Mart sells for a quarter every Autumn.
"Jesus, is he Avery?"
"It's Avery's body, but it's not Avery," Dale said. "I think I know my nephew."
"Jesus, Dale. 'No kids.' Ain't that an outlaw rule?"
Now one of the guns was pointed at me.
The boy began to cry. Streams of thick red poured from the eye holes and the bottom of the mask. Tensions flared.
"How's that mask staying on?"
"God damn staples," Dale answered.
"Dale you sick son of a bitch," my son cocked his shotgun. The two men beside Dale cocked their pistols.
"You think I did this? When? You saw me take it! You chased me down here! I would never do this. Not to child. Not to anyone. This ain’t Avery" Dale explained, turning to me. "I bet you wish you’d believed me when I told you about paw, when I told you how they come and get me. I bet you wish you could go back, but you can’t. We can never go back." Dale was crying now. "Now is all we got. This AIN’T Avery!"
The child began to shake. I could not begin to imagine the trauma he’s endured. Torture. Kidnapping.
"These are thick fucking staples. From a staple gun. We found it in its trick-or-treat pillowcase."
"Avery. Avery. Listen, honey. Are you scared?"
Avery nodded again.
"Say your fucking name!" Dale pressed the blade into the boy's neck, this time drawing blood. It let out a low bellow, not the type of high pitched scream a child makes.
"Can you remove the mask?" I asked, not sure if I should point the gun at Dale or keep it cocked and pointed at the floor.
"Not without surgical tools," my son responded.
"I'll remove it" Dale said prying the bottom of the knife in between the staples of the mask and lifting forward. He pulled his knife back to pry out the staple but the boy only bellowed louder.
"You’re hurting him!" My son approached with his gun. The two men raised their guns at James’ head. It was hard to believe Dale, what was he even saying? Not human? Looking at this innocent child in little blue denim overalls and yellow t-shirt. And yet, the sounds were unlike any I ever heard.
With the everyone looking at the screaming child, I silently approached and masterfully disarmed one man with gun pressed to his temple while he was distracted, pointing both guns at the other man. Knowing he'd been had, he wisely lowered his weapon.
"Dale, that's enough now," I commanded. I pointed both guns at him. My son approached with his shot gun.
"Dale!" my son said again, pointing the shotgun up. "Come on, Dale. Do the right thing here."
Dale dropped the knife and pulled on the bottom of the mask with both hands with everything he had, trying desperately to pry off the mask near the boy's chin. The boy’s feet were dangling as Dale held him by the face. The boy let out a horrible shriek. An unbearable screaming noise. I never heard a sound like that come out of a boy, come out of anything. I covered my ear with one hand, gun pointed up, and pointed the other gun at Dale, my other ear pressed into my shoulder. When the screaming reached another octave, I fell to my knees, pressing both hands against my ears. I heard it before I realized it happened. My son was always stubborn. Now, under pressure, he refused to stand down.
That’s when James shot Dale with the shotgun.
"No!" I hollered at him, knocking the shotgun to the floor. But the damage was done. The sound was deafening. We all fell to the ground except Dale, who was forced up into the wall. He slumped against some boxes against the wall, touching his stomach and looking at the blood on his fingers, eyes staring up blankly for God. The force of the gunshot ripped through his body spraying blood everywhere and leaving six smoking bullet holes in his shoulder and arm. But it was also the force needed to rip the mask from the child's face.
The staples ripped part of the skin away, leaving gashes of dark red dashed lines in an oval around the boy's face. As if that were not unnerving enough, the skin pulled away from the top of the boy's skull.
The skin around the boy's forehead, eyes, and nose should have been tight and taut. But it was not. It hung loosely. Bulging blue eyes darted from under the sagging skin. He reached up to his forehead and held the skin back, trying to keep it in place. I got to my knees and reached forward, pulling the skin from the bridge of his nose. The skin pulled apart from the perforations where the staples pierced the boy's chin. James' breathing grew louder and labored as Avery's face hung limply from my fingers.
I expected the mask to come off, not Avery’s entire face.
Dale tried to say something, but only blood gurgled from his lips.
I could hear footsteps at the top of the stairs, but I did not dare take my eyes off the creature. It hissed at me, eyes angry and scared.
Dale was right. What stared back was not Avery. It was another face. Humanoid. Oversized eyes popped from the skull that was too small to be human. It had no nose. I could see the white of the skull where the blood refused to pool. There was a deep orifice where the nose should be. Blood sputtered from this vertical slit. Sharp, jagged teeth protruded from thin black lips. Its black tongue flickered and licked the outside of its mouth. It was covered in Avery's blood.
My son rocked quietly back and forth. The other men stared in disbelief at the thing that wore Avery's body as its Halloween costume.
It was still trying to fool us by picking up parts of the boy’s face and placing them where they should have been.
"Avery?" Ms. McCreary asked from behind me. I slowly turned to see the tears streaming down her tired cheeks, her son's face still dangling from my fingers.
She set her eyes upon the humanoid thing wearing her son's skin and then at her son's face in my hands. The thing still wore the blue denim overalls Avery wore in the "Missing" posters we posted around town. Ms. McCreary let out a scream that still, to this day, shakes me to my core.
The humanoid creature darted out from between my legs, managing to shake Avery's body free, and its bloody form scurried up the stairs on all fours, leaving its husk behind. Avery’s body slipped away from the thing’s tiny torso. It had the shape of a boy, but it was black and bloody, not of our world. Up the stairs it went, two at a time, and out the front door. Ms. McCreary fainted.
I looked from Ms. McCreary to my son to the bloodied mess of a carcass that once was Avery before us, and knew things would never be alright again. Not with that thing roaming free.
Dale would survive that night, but a bit of his sanity was taken by the creature. I couldn’t blame him. He had been right. Right about it not being Avery. Right about being taken those years ago. Probably right about his paw, too.
I retired soon after that. James is sheriff now. The town doesn’t celebrate Halloween anymore. Too much pain that day.
But if you celebrate the day of the dead, stay with watchful eye. If you ever see a small child in a white sheet on Halloween, be sure it isn’t gliding up the steps to your front door. The thing that pretended to be Avery still roams about our rolling hills, awaiting its chance to become one of us, even if just for a night. Waiting for another Halloween, biding its time when it can finally walk amongst us again.

BIO

You know the guy, who says he knows a guy, who knows a guy. I'm the guy they're all talking about.
Enrico is internationally known among the criminal underground, as the guy with all the right connections with all the wrong people. Renowned for his luck but takes joy in the misfortune of others especially that backstabber McCree, whom he blames for the demise of the Dead Lock Gang. Having a mutually beneficial business relationship with Talon, he brings a few of his favorite acquisitions to the fight. Usually carries himself with a cool suave almost playful demeanor, but looses his composure quickly when he gets worked up getting overly excited and talking louder and more rapidly.

Primary Weapon: Rifle of Superior Italian Tactical Advantage--aka Rosita

Lady Luck the love of his life. A laser sighted electromagnetic rifle that fires rubber coated rounds capable of ricocheting shots. Direct impact shots do less damage because of rubber coating. Ricocheted bullets are no longer coated doing more damage. Shots can ricochet off of surfaces, barriers and heavily armored opponents.
Rosita does not pack the punch of a Widowmaker or Hanzo and has low to average dps overall, leaving Enrico at a disadvantage when directly across from opponents. To be effective Enrico has to play the angles and utilize his environment and opponents by using Rosita's unique ability to bank shots for maximum damage. The laser sight is in play to aid in lining up angles, but also can be a dead giveaway to your position when covering an area.
Type: Hitscan
Ammo: 15
Reload Speed: 1.5 seconds
Headshot: Yes
Primary Fire -Tap the trigger fires a 3 shot burst. Bullets can only bounce once.
Damage: 25 per coated bullet, 40 ricocheted.
Rate of Fire: 3 per second
Secondary Fire -Hold the trigger 1.5 seconds does a single powerful shot, consumes 3 rounds. Bullets can bounce twice.
Damage: 80 per coated bullet, 130 ricocheted.
Voicelines

Passive: Gravity Jump

Rico charges a low gravity field. The next leap he makes activates the field, causing Rico to jump higher but slower through the air. Can use all abilities while airborne. Activate by holding the jump button, charging, release button to jump.
Useful for getting to different vantage points, dropping a Snake Eyes grenade, angling a midair shot to hit an enemy or trigger a Hot Foot, or activating The Death Ball. Has a small visual cue when he's about to jump. Can jump in any normal direction. Can turn and adjust aim midair but cannot change direction midair.
Airspeed: 4m/s
Hangtime: 2 seconds
Height: A little over Reinhardts Shield
Voicelines

Ability 1: Snake Eyes

Rico tosses a Biometric disrupter grenade, that sends out a pulse on impact that scrambles opponents bioreadings and shield regeneration. This causes affected opponents to become temporarily susceptible to friendly fire from Auto-Targeting attacks and AOE Damage.
Snake Eyes plays to the concept of Rico being lucky. Although it can be beneficial to teammates it would probably be used mostly as a means of self preservation causing certain major threats to become a danger to someone else other than himself. Plays well against his nemesis too, I can imagine him laughing when McCree High Noon's his own team. Great for disrupting or stalling enemy pushes or clearing choke points on offense. Can be blocked, deflected, or negated by defense matrix.
Damage: 0
Projectile Speed: 4m/s
Area of Effect: 5m Splash
Duration: 5 seconds
Cooldown: 10 seconds
Voicelines

Ability 2: Hot Foot

Rico deploys an ignition plate that can stick to horizontal surfaces. The ignition plate can only be triggered by a shot from Rosita or The Death Ball. Once triggered the ignition plate releases a bloom of fire that quickly spreads out in a radius. Enemies within 2m of the bloom will take burst damage.
Any enemy team members who use a mobility ability to escape the fire or any enemy team member who passes through the fire with a mobility ability will cause a Fan the Flames effect. Fanning the flames spreads the radius and increases the duration and damage of the fire. This does not apply to passive mobilty traits.
Characters who used a mobility ability through or out of the fire will have a trail of Fire that remains on them equal to the amount of time they spent in the flames and taking damage equivalent to the current Fan the Flames temperature.
Charges: 2
Type: Fire
Damage: 40 Burst; 30 DOT in AOE
Fan the Flames Damage: +15 DOT per mobility used Max +45
Area of Effect: 4m
Fan the Flames AOE Spread: +2m per mobility used Max +6m
Duration: 3 seconds
Fan the Flames Duration Increase: +1s per mobility used Max +3s
Voicelines

Ultimate: The Death Ball

Rico activates a metallic ball that quickly rolls across the ground and will repeatedly bounce off of any solid objects while rapidly firing off ricochet rounds in every direction.
The Death Ball can roll through barriers but bullets cannot. Ball can be CC'd and/or destroyed. Damage for ultimate is not consistent because it is purely based on bullet trajectories. Use it in close quarters for maximum effect. Good for starting a push as it can get behind barriers and get to the squishies cowering behind them, while allowing Rico to stay at a safe distance, and letting your team follow up. No high guaranteed damage like other comparable ultimates, but is faster moving covering variable area and allows for player mobility.
Ultimate Charge: 1600
Speed: 9m/s
Duration: .75 seconds to activate; rolls for 4 seconds
Rate of Fire: 30 shots per second
Damage: 10 coated; 30 ricocheted
Damage from Death Ball Impact: 15 in a 2m radius
Potential Overall Damage: 4800
Voicelines

Gameplay

Rico does not fair well in a toe-to-toe, straight-up gunfight. His abilities are geared toward holding off flankers at choke points and picking off vulnerable targets. Snake Eyes, Hot Foot and The Death Ball are ideal tools for interrupting a push or disrupting a team holding a point on assault maps but also viable for some escort scenarios. His Gravity Jump can help him escape a bad situation or start one, but is slow enough that he could be picked out of the air. Rosita and his Hot Foot are ideal for creating and controlling bottlenecks, like in a hallway to a health pack for example.

"Do you know what the saddest thing about betrayal is?"
"We had a good thing going this little group we put together. It's like the story of Robin Hood and his merry men. They were a group of guys who ran around in questionable attire stealing from the rich and giving it to the needy. We were a lot like them except for their questionable attire of course, and we did steal from the rich and powerful because hey sometimes we needed it, or usually someone wanted to give us a lot of money for it, and of course we needed that."
"We had a cooler name for our group too the Dead Lock Gang so much better than the Merry Men. All kidding aside, we were a tight knit group, I of course was like Robin Hood because I was the leader and incredibly dashing."
"I also had my faithful and beautiful Rosita who was like that Maid Marion. Rosita is so much better though after all who wants a maid, I mean come on, I mean it's okay if your into that thing I'm not judging."
"I also had a few members of the gang that I could count on like brothers, I could trust them with anything. Especially McCree, I guess if you had to compare him in this story it would be with Little John, why, because he's a bit of a meathead but he's good in a fight, why he likes to roll around in the dirt I'll never understand, but he is also a pretty good shot almost as good as me, maybe he would be better if he didn't have such a tiny pistol, haha that's the other reason I would call him Little John."
"Seriously though the two of us had been through so many adventures together, well I guess you could call them jobs, but they were exciting, I guess you could call them capers, yeah capers works. With my luck and leadership and his brawn and bravado we could walk through fire and you wouldn't even smell the smoke on us, except maybe for that nasty cigar smell that is always on McCree. As I was saying we were untouchable. I trusted him like no one else, with everything, well everything except Rosita NO ONE HANDLES MY LADY BUT ME! "
"Now trust is not something I give to anyone, anymore. That Porca Cowboy ruined everything, and he got the whole Gang in on it too. McCree wanted an opportunity to plan and lead the next caper. I of course said no since I'm the brains of the group."
"Then he says I'll play you for it, one game of poker, if I win I get to run the next mission or unless maybe you want to put that little senorita Rosita up for grabs, you can name your stakes The whole gang were all grinning and smiling and egging me on, I knew they must have planned this so I let it play out. I told him Rosita is never on the table, but if you've got something to prove I'll take that bet. I'll take it just for the satisfaction of watching you lose. Why wouldn't I? With my luck I couldn't lose it was a sure bet. I know he cheated, had an Ace up his sleeve for sure, but with those quick draw hands I never saw it coming. I lost. He won. I let it go. What could it hurt?"
"So I let McCree and the rest of them do their thing. I had family matters to attend to anyway. Imagine my surprise when I found out that my band of merry men had all been caught or killed by this group of Lawmen. The Dead Lock Gang's story was over. Then I find out that we had a traitor in our group, it seems our Outlaw Cowboy Little John wanted to play the role of the Sheriff instead. Porca miseria!"
"The loss of the Dead Lock Gang was definitely bad for business and if it was bad for business it affected the family, my family. Our clientele became nervous about doing business with us, worried we might be exposed, and might expose them. That damn Cowboy brought all of this shame to my family, it was his fault, but I was the one who had to pay the price! I had to fix it! But I didn't fix it soon enough."
"After running a few overseas operations and picking up some acquisitions for my cousin Don Antonio, I was called back home. Home to Rialto. It had been almost a year since I was allowed to come back, but I was finally getting back into favor with the family. No more laying low, time to get back into business. Seemed my luck was turning back around."
"When I arrived in Rialto I had already heard the broadcast on the news. My cousin Don Antonio had been shot. The reporters said there had been a group of armed assailants that raided his home. Our family had made a lot of enemies but no one has ever had the nerve to make a move on Don Antonio before."
"When I got to our home I went and looked over the security footage, most of it was useless, images blurry, cameras destroyed. All except for 1 clip. I saw Antonio fall, then moments later I saw it, that damn cowboy hat looking out the window. McCree! What more could he take from me? My gang, my business, and now my family!"
"You know it's true when they say, It's only after we've lost everything, that we're free to do anything. That Cowboy is going to pay for what he's done, Rosita can't wait to give him that final kiss goodbye, but not before I find out who's been helping him. But I'm going to need help to do that, it's a good thing I can still count on my Talon-ted family"
"We will set things right and I will end things with McCree. I will end everything about McCree. That backstabbers luck has run out. "
"You know the saddest thing about betrayal? It never comes from an enemy."

Ability 3: Satchel Charge

Rico drops a Thermal Charge with a proximity switch. When triggered detonation does burst damage and DOT in the AOE. If Satchel Charges are not triggered they must be physically retrieved to reuse them. Can be destroyed. Charges can be hacked by Sombra and fire extinguished by Mei.
Not a high damaging attack, mostly used as a deterrent for flankers or covering a vulnerable blind spot for the team. Enrico will know when its activated but not how many opponents are there. Useful for finishing off a low health opponent if placed near a health pack. Sombra's hack makes it actively her Charge causing it to detonate against yourself and your team. Does not stick to walls, floors only.

With the RDR2 hype train at full speed, I wanted to compile a list of some of the lesser-known historical Old West legends for people to read about. Here are just some of my favorites

I've been fairly active on the sub lately and as I've said many times, I'm a huge fan of Westerns and the era of the Old West. Beyond reading fictional Western stories and watching fictional Western movies -- which are always a joy, to be sure -- I do love getting into the actual history of the era. There are those famous moments and people pretty much everyone knows about such as the OK Corral, Wyatt Earp and Billy the Kid, etc., that I'll omit from this list for that very reason. That's not to say none of what is listed here will be relatively unknown or anything, but I am going for things and people that are at least somewhat lesser known (or perhaps just favorites of mine). Of course, if you have anything above a passing familiarity with the history of the American West, I doubt any of this will be new to you, but hey, hopefully some people out there will learn something new!
I will note that I am not a historian at all. I'm just a fan of history and the Old West/Westward expansion is one of my favorite eras to read about. In other words, I'm no expert and I'd love if someone who is more well-studied in this area could come in and offer their own take, corrections, etc. To that end, most of what I'll be linking here will simply be Wikipedia pages that can (obviously) lead you down a rabbit hole, but I will link to other sources/pages where I can. It's also worth noting for anyone who might be unfamiliar that the "Wild West" wasn't nearly as "wild" as the romanticized stories would have us believe. Often there's merely a kernel of truth to some stories that were greatly exaggerated or served as inspiration for some person or event that became wholly separate from what inspired it in the first place. That’s not to say there wasn’t some truly wild shit happening in that era as you’ll soon see, but I wanted to mention it. Anyway, without further ado...
The Banditti of the Prairie
Although the broad strokes of RDR2's story is pretty standard for Westerns and is likely inspired by various other fictional Western tales and actual Old West history, you will definitely see some notable similarities between the plot of the game and the Banditti of the Prairie.
The Banditti of the Prairie, also known as "The Banditti", "Prairie Pirates", "Prairie Bandits", and "Pirates of the Prairie", in the U.S. states of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and the territory of Iowa, were a group of loose-knit, outlaw gangs, during the early-mid-19th century. Though bands of roving criminals were common in many parts of Illinois, the counties of Lee, DeKalb, Ogle, and Winnebago were especially plagued by them.[1] The new crime wave in the region of the frontier Middle West may have occurred following the crackdown on southern outlaws by the rising vigilante- regulator movement and the breakup of the criminal syndicate of John A. Murrell and his gang, the "Mystic Clan" in the Southern United States. In the year 1841, the escalating pattern of house burglary, horse and cattle theft, stagecoach and highway robbery, counterfeiting, and murder associated with the Banditti had come to a head in Ogle County. As the crimes continued, local citizens formed bands of vigilantes known as Regulators. A clash between the Banditti and the Regulators in Ogle County near Oregon, Illinois, resulted in the outlaws' demise and decreased Banditti activity and violent crime within the county.
Seth Bullock
Okay, okay, so this is definitely a guy a whole lot of people will be familiar with thanks to HBO's Deadwood, but I'm still including him here because the actual person is worth reading about if you haven't already. One of my favorite tidbits about Seth Bullock is that he became good friends with Teddy Roosevelt who himself is one of the great badasses of history. Bullock even helped train the Rough Riders. This is one of the Wikipedia pages with sources worth exploring.
In 1873, he was elected sheriff of Lewis and Clark County, Montana.[4] During his tenure as sheriff, he killed his first man, Clell Watson. Watson had stolen a horse and engaged in a gunfight with Bullock, in which Bullock was slightly wounded in the shoulder. Watson was then taken into custody. Watson was prepared to be hanged, but a mob appeared and scared off the executioner. Bullock climbed the scaffold and pulled the lever, sending Watson to his death. Bullock then held off the mob with a shotgun. This incident was recreated on HBO's Deadwood, except that Watson was hanged on the step of the sheriff's office.[5]
Around this time, Bullock and Sol Star opened a hardware store.[2] In August 1876, he and Star decided that an untapped market for hardware existed in the gold rush town of Deadwood in the Dakota Territory. The two purchased a lot in Deadwood and set up shop there as the "Office of Star and Bullock, Auctioneers and Commission Merchants," first in a tent and then a building.[2]
John Joel Glanton and the Glanton Gang
Before I go any further I will say STOP AND GO READ CORMAC MCCARTHY'S BLOOD MERIDIAN! Seriously, go read it! Now! Not only is it one of the greatest American novels ever written and not only is it arguably the greatest Western ever written, but it is based in actual American history and this is the thing it is based on. There's certainly no harm in researching the actual history it's based on first, but I know I'd certainly want to dive into the novel beforehand. If you've already read the book or if you don't mind getting into the history of it, then this is a great page going into more detail and summarizing the writings of a man who was a part of the gang and told of all the terrible, horrible shit they did. There's a whole lot to read about on these guys, so if you're curious for more, just use your best Google fu and have at it. Also, go read Blood Meridian, goddamn it. Do it.
The day after Chamberlain arrived, Glanton and several others left Frontreras to cash in the scalps; on the way they encountered a camp of Sonorans. The desperadoes disguised themselves as Apaches and raided the camp for supplies. Three Mexicans were killed and scalped (to be redeemed by their government); five women were "collected"- three of whom were scalped (for the same purpose) because they were old and ugly. The Sonorans returned to battle the "Indians," interrupting their orgy, and the remaining women were killed and scalped. The Sonorans were driven off, but several of Glanton's party were injured too. After this the gang decided to follow rumors of gold and El Dorado and began north towards New Mexico. On their way, they terrorized Arizona, impersonating Apaches, killing and scalping farmers (presumably to maintain their contract with the government), and cashed in their scalps too.
Joaquin Murrieta
One of the most infamous and controversial outlaws of the Wild West who also happened to serve as the inspiration for Zorro. And since Batman was partially inspired by Zorro, you could say Joaquin Murrieta indirectly inspired the creation of Batman. Even if you buy into the most romanticized tale of this particular outlaw, it still tells a story of a man forced into a lawless life who quickly allowed himself to be consumed by it and went down a pretty dark path.
Joaquin Murrieta Carrillo (sometimes spelled Murieta or Murietta) (1829 – July 25, 1853), also called The Robin Hood of the West or the Robin Hood of El Dorado, was a famous vaquero, and gold miner in California during the California Gold Rush of the 1850s. The popular legend of Joaquin Murrieta is that of a peace-loving man driven to seek revenge when he and his brother were falsely accused of stealing a mule. His brother was hanged and Joaquin horsewhipped. His young wife was gang raped and in one version she died in Joaquin's arms. Swearing revenge, Joaquin hunted down all who had violated his sweetheart. He embarked on a short but violent career that brought death to his Anglo tormentors. The state of California then offered a reward of up to $5000 for Joaquin "dead or alive." Joaquin was never found.
Bass Reeves
This badass was the first black US marshal in the West, and by god was he ever one of the truest badasses to ever live. His life is one of the rare ones that seems too fantastical to be true, but as far as I've read, there doesn't seem to be any controversy behind the accuracy of his life's story.
Bass Reeves (July 1838 – 12 January 1910) was the first black deputy U.S. marshal west of the Mississippi River. He worked mostly in Arkansas and the Oklahoma Territory. During his long career, he was credited with arresting more than 3,000 felons. He shot and killed 14 outlaws in self-defense.
Holy shit.
Side note: there’s absolutely no evidence of this, but I’m pretty sure his mustache was responsible for an additional 1,000 arrests and somewhere between 10-12 additional self-defense killings.
Crawford Goldsby
Crawford Goldsby (February 8, 1876 – March 17, 1896) was a 19th-century American outlaw, known by the alias Cherokee Bill. Responsible for the murders of eight men (including his brother-in-law), he and his gang terrorized the Indian Territory for over two years.
As you can see just from the introduction of the Wikipedia article, this guy was an outlaw who didn’t live very long in the outlaw lifestyle, making it to only twenty years old before the law caught up with him and he was hanged. When offered his last words before being hanged, he said, “I came here to die, not to make a speech.”
The Apache Kid
Here’s yet another Wild West legend in which there’s no telling where the facts end and the fiction begins. Neither his exact date of birth or death is known, though you can see in the linked article there are plenty of photos of him and at one point he had a $15,000 bounty on his head, which would be roughly ~$275,000 today.
Haskay-bay-nay-ntayl (c. 1860 – after 1894), better known as the Apache Kid,[1][2] was a White Mountain Apache scout and later a notorious renegade active in the borderlands of the U.S. states of Arizona and New Mexico in the late 19th and possibly the early 20th centuries.
His exact date of birth is unknown, but he is believed to have been born sometime in the 1860s. His year of death is generally given as 1894, but some New Mexico cattle ranchers claimed he was alive until the 1930s. The Apache Kid Wilderness in New Mexico is named after him.[3] The Apache Kid character in Marvel Comics was also named after him but otherwise has no connection.
Tom Horn
Now here’s a motherfucker with quite the storied life. Seriously, this is one Wikipedia page you’ll want to read in its entirety, because so much of this guy embodies what you imagine a “badass Wild West man,” to be. He was a scout, soldier, cowboy, detective and Pinkerton agent over the course of his life before being hanged for the murder of 14-year-old Willie Nickell, though there is some on-going debate as to whether he was truly guilty.
Horn allegedly killed his first man in a duel — a second lieutenant in the Mexican Army, whom he killed as a result of a dispute with a prostitute.
…he is most notorious for being hired by numerous cattle companies as a cowboy and hired gun to watch over their cattle and kill any suspected criminals preying on them. In his line of work, Horn developed his own means to fight cattle rustling, which he described: "I would simply take the calf and such things as that stopped the stealing. I had more faith in getting the calf than in courts." If he thought a man was guilty of stealing cattle and had been fairly warned, Horn said that he would shoot the thief and would not feel "one shred of remorse."[15] Horn would often give a warning first to those he suspected of rustling, and was said to have been a "tremendous presence" whenever he was in the vicinity.[15] Fergie Mitchell, a rancher on the North Laramie River, described Horn's reputation:
“I saw him ride by. He didn't stop, but went straight on up the creek in plain sight of everyone. All he wanted was to be seen, as his reputation was so great that his presence in a community had the desired effect. Within a week three settlers in the neighborhood sold their holdings and moved out. That was the end of cattle rustling on the North Laramie.[15]”
Cole Younger
This is another guy a lot of people may be somewhat familiar with. If his specific name doesn’t ring a bell, the James-Younger Gang probably does. As with the Banditti of the Prairie, the gang's downfall sort of resembles the downfall of Dutch’s gang in RDR with a robbery gone wrong. Note that this guy’s Wikipedia page is a rabbit hole you’ll want to explore.
On September 7, 1876, the James–Younger Gang attempted to rob a bank in Northfield, Minnesota. Cole Younger and his brother Bob both later said that they selected the bank because of its connection to two former Union generals and Radical Republican politicians, Benjamin Butler and Adelbert Ames. Three of the outlaws entered the bank, as the remaining five, led by Cole Younger, remained on the street to provide cover. The crime soon went awry, however, when the townspeople sent up the alarm and ran for their guns.
John Wesley Hardin
Yet another Old West figure you may have heard about. He claimed to have killed 42 men but is thought to have killed 27 at most, which is still a fuckton of kills, obviously. Regardless, he is one of the most well-known gunfighters out there. Once again, this dude’s Wikipedia page is both lengthy and a rabbit hole in itself, so I’ll leave it here and let you explore.
The History of the Texas Rangers
Here’s one of my favorites to read about. The early days of the Texas Rangers are certainly controversial but nevertheless captivating to study. That’s not to say they didn’t do good things, too, but the history of the Rangers is a prime example of both how times have changed and how this era of American history was shrouded in a sort of moral gray era, with men of all walks of life doing good and terrible things alike. For instance,
It was at these times that many of the Rangers' myths were born, such as their success in capturing or killing notorious criminals and desperados (including bank robber Sam Bass and gunfighter John Wesley Hardin) and their decisive role in the defeat of the Comanche, the Kiowa and the Apache peoples. It was also during these years that the Rangers suffered the only defeat in their history when they surrendered at the Salinero Revolt in 1877. Despite the fame of their deeds, the conduct of the Rangers during this period was questionable. In particular, McNelly and his men used ruthless methods that often rivaled the brutality of their opponents, such as taking part in summary executions and confessions induced by torture and intimidation.[16] McNelly also made himself famous for disobeying direct orders from his superiors on several occasions, and breaking through the Mexican frontier for self-appointed law enforcement purposes.[17]
This page is indeed a great rabbit hole, so have at it. However, my favorite historical story of the Rangers connects to the next name on this list.
Iron Jacket
Now this guy’s story is almost beyond belief. It has all the makings of a great legend and folk tale, but the best part is that as far as anyone can tell, it’s all true! Here you have a seasoned Comanche chief who seems to actually be immortal and invincible, who is feared by just about everyone. Even the Rangers themselves were unable to kill him despite many insisting they had shot him several times yet he seemed to be completely unaffected. I bet you’re wondering how that’s even possible. I mean, that’s definitely just myth, right? He had to just be lucky, right? All those people who shot at him must’ve had the aim of a Star Wars Stormtrooper, right? Not quite.
Pohebits-quasho ("Iron Jacket") was a Comanche chieftain and medicine man whom the Comanche believed had the power to blow bullets aside with his breath. His name probably resulted from his habit of wearing a Spanish coat of mail into battle, which protected him from most light weapons fire.
So, how did the apparently invincible legend meet his end? Well, the Rangers had to team up with the Tonkawa, which eventually led to the Battle of Little Robe Creek. Although Iron Jacket’s coat of mail indeed protected him from light weapons fire, it could not protect him from the power behind a goddamn buffalo rifle.
There’s yet another, uh, “interesting,” wrinkle to this story. You know the Tonkawa’s the Ranger’s teamed up with? Yeah, uh, they were cannibals. Seriously. Those dudes were actual cannibals, and they partially ate Iron Jacket’s body.
That's it for now. Since we still have a ways to go until RDR2 releases, I might make another post like this one with some more Old West historical figures and events if people enjoyed this post.
Also, seriously, go read Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy. Do yourself a favor.
