* DirtyCoward: Sheriff Corby New Petersburg combines this with ObstructiveBureaucrat. He makes it clear he's more comfortable "hauling in drunks and light-fingered Charlies" than dealing with the Karovnians who threaten his town, so he plans to ignore the violent foreigners as best he can until they leave. He refuses to cooperate with Artie, but tells him that at least he won't help Balkovitch either. At the end, he shows up to arrest Balkovitch's gang after Jim and Artie have defeated them because "I always go with a hot hand."

Prince Gregor of Karovnia (Guy Stockwell) is on his way to New Petersburg with his family. West and Gordon are tasked with making sure the royal party arrives safely, since a gang led by Count Balkovitch (John Van Dreelen) is determined to see the royals dead in order to prevent the establishment of peace in their mutual homeland. Balkovitch also hopes to steal the sacred Icon of New Karovnograd, which is concealed in New Petersburg; the residents get wind of this and begin leaving town in droves, while the cowardly sheriff refuses to get involved in any shooting. When Princess Lina (Jennifer Douglas) is kidnapped shortly afterward, it becomes apparent that there's a traitor within the royal party. The agents must find the traitor, recover the princess and ensure that the icon doesn't fall into the wrong hands.
