An outlaw menacing the area on his hunt for his surrogate son turned enemy, Roy Goode.

  • As the Good Book Says...: Though nobody really know which book he's referring to. At one point he admits one of his quotes is from a can of shaving cream.
  • The Dreaded
  • Handicapped Badass: Only has one arm, but it makes him no less terrifying.

  • Sinister Minister: His go-to guise is a preacher.
  • Wicked Cultured: He may be the most well-read character in the series.
