A simple man looking to find where his place is in the world.
Raised a simple cattleman like his father before him, Carter made a living off the land. He, his wife, and his 7 children lived on a small parcel west of Haywood. Carter was approached by a man named Owen Declan Smith, a wealthy land owner, who wished to purchase the Evans homestead to lay track for railroad. Though Smith insisted heavily, Carter refused, the land having been his family’s property for generations. One day, upon returning from town, Carter found his home in ruins, his cattle slaughtered, and his family dead.
That night Owen Smith found himself sitting in his study, looking down the barrel of Carter Evan’s Draxan Military issue revolver.
“You’d better think about what you’re doing here, boy.” Smith started, “If you pull that trigger the death of your wife and children will be the least…”.
A bullet ended Smith’s final sentence, and Carter Evans has been on the run ever since. Avoiding law men and bounty hunters, living off the land to stay one step ahead of Smith’s embittered widow who’s reach, thanks to her late husband’s wealth, is considerable.
