* [[spoiler: AngelUnaware:]] [[spoiler:One day in 1953, a young PC named Gene Hunt died after surprising a burglar with a shotgun. He woke up in Dead Copper Purgatory and remade it - and himself - into what he most wanted to be; a CowboyCop, old-school John Wayne or Gary Cooper type, where there's always bad guys to catch, but they're all afraid of the Gene Genie. Except he doesn't remember any of this until someone like Sam or Alex comes along and asks too many questions about the world.]]
