Gunslinger with a cause
Woman in Black Encounter: *Back in the days when Cobb was working on his family ranch, he went into town to pick up supplies. At that point he witnessed a well dressed woman in a solid black dress being kidnapped. Seeing that the sheriff was in his usual drunken stupor, Cobb chased down the carriage, hogtied the men and threw them in jail. The woman thanked Cobb and praised his willingness to help others. Cobb asserted that this was not a normal day. Then she plucked the tin star off of the sheriff’s chest and twirled it between her fingers saying “People need good men for the abnormal days.” She left the star on the armrest of the still unconscious sheriff’s chair and went on her way.
That Horrible Day in Canton
A few years ago you were just the sheriff of a normal quiet fair-sized town a-ways off the any main trail not too far from Dodge City. You were used to dealing with local farmers, and prospectors with the occasional outlaw but you were good. Folks were always impressed with your speed and toughness most local outlaws stayed away and prayed upon easier towns. Then one day, evil showed up from nearby hills. Wolves that moved like men ran rampant killing everyone in sight and turning them into horrible creatures.
You took action, rounded up survivor’s gitin them in a near-bye cave for some shelter and managed to seal it up, and then made your way through the hoard of creatures, to get on a horse and to the nearest telegraph office, the next town over, and get some help. Then you headed back to your town to try and get the rest of the survivors out with the help of a few volunteers, most of whom ran off, or died when the first wave came at you.
By the time you got back to the cave where the survivors were the creatures had almost broken through the barricade. You and the remaining men with you decided to make a diversion to get the creatures off of them and give the surviving townsfolk a chance to escape. Things didn’t go exactly as planned and you were trapped between the cliffside and a black hideous wolf that used to be your barber when the men in black came in with their fancy gear and, as you were to learn, supernatural know-how managed to stop the remaining wolves in their tracks, killin most, capturing some.
When you woke up on that fateful day you were the proud sheriff of a town of one hundred thirty fourr God-fearing souls, with your fiancé, Rebecca. By noon you were fighting for your life trying to warn as many folk as you could. Come evening you had to put both barrels of a shotgun to what remained of your sweet fiancé.
They call you a hero for saving nearly half the towns folks from that disaster, but every night that day comes back to you, and what you did. And it will never happen again, you now search for the source of the horror of that day and along the way do your best to protect those that need protecting and put an end to any and all evil you come across.
