Isaiah grew up in a rich and sheltered environment, while his wealthy father was involved in banking or politics and never had much time for family life.
Montgomery senior was an austere man, who probably wanted his son to have and do the best he could but was unavailable to provide evidence of this other to encourage from a far with expectations that he would follow in his father’s footsteps.
The young Isaiah unaware of this affection but aware of the need to impress his father is consumed with a desire to be the best he can be and as much of a man as he can be decides that a banker’s life is not for him and strives to go out west and forge his own name.
Imbibed with a sense of purpose and justice and the need to do everything right he would best be described as naive in the ways of the real world.
Isaiah grew up consumed with reading newspapers and the comic books of the day which describes the frontier as full of worthy gunslingers fighting for good and so became his heroes.
The young man is deadly quick on the drawer, but much like the kid who can throw great shapes on stage, this is a skill born through hours spent in front of a mirror.
In front of several cans on a fence he can dispatch them without thought, but he has never shot at or hit a man.
He has come west to seek his fortune, maybe taking some monies from a trust fund and is ready to make his name in some venture in this glorious land of opportunity…
He is fueled by the desire to make his father proud by creating something completely different.
He has all the traits of the aristocracy, sharp clothes, too soft looking, clean shaven, clean and well spoken and as religious as those of wealth and privileged are sue to never having cursed God in the small, dark, lonely hours of despair.
Lamb to the slaughter or a test to find the steel of the soul?
