  1. JAMES GIDEON Also known as Jim Silverback, King of Iron and Wyatt Ex-leader of the Silverback Gang. Gideon is a Kentuckian ex-Cavalryman who once rode with the 3rd Regiment of the Union Cavalry. Having refused his commanding officer Lieutenant Colonel Murtagh Lynch's orders to burn down a saloon rumored to be harboring Confederate over women and children being still inside, he took a handful of riders from his company and deserted. With a handful of friends in the Senate, Lynch has made a hell out of the deserters' lives, forcing them to stay on the run, wherever they go. Moving from state to state as he made his way down south, he finally had the chance to catch his breath once he crossed the river into Nuevo Paraíso. He spent a few years across the border, taking odd jobs in the region basing out of Chuparosa with the remaining members of his band of deserters before joining the Comanche campaigns in Texas under the No-Finger Chief. After embarking into several expeditions into the Comancheria, witnessing and committing savagery equally, he decided to call it quits as the funding of the expeditionary man took a turn for the worse. Winded up in Lannahechee, he met Mercer Endell and set the foundation stones of what became the Silverback Gang in the Old Light Saloon of Van Horn. Escalating from petty roadside thievery to armed robberies committed all across the state, dealing firearms to the natives and more elaborate schemes overtime, he decided it was his time to leave it all behind after crowning this crime spree with the robbery of the National Bank of Lemoyne. He didn't waste any time to make a name for himself as a detective and a bounty hunter to distance himself from his past deeds, thanks to a rapport he's built contracting for the South-Western Detective Agency to clean up their messes and handle their dirty work. What follows is his attempts to turn himself from a scoundrel to something better, or perhaps mask his true self with such excuses while still following the trail of money.
  2. NEW AUSTIN RANGERS "The Rangers were to be described many times, at first as state troops, later as a police force or constabulary. During most of the 19th century they were neither. They were apart from the regular army, the militia or national guard, and were never a true police force. They were instead one of the most colorful, efficient, and deadly band of irregular partisans on the side of law and order the world has seen. They were called into being by the needs of a war frontier, by a society that could not afford a regular army. " The Rangers were founded in the mid 1820's when ten men were employed to act as Rangers to protect 600 to 700 newly settled families who arrived in Mexican-New Austin, following the Mexican War of independence. However, they quickly became another tool to assist on the new frontier, taking up arms against hostile indians, and later, to help fight the Mexican-American war. Up until they were formally constituted, many rangers served as range detectives, being hired by local ranches to find and detain cattle rustlers, often listed on the ranch payroll as perhaps a wrangler. The range detective rode the open range and looked for rustlers. If one suspected rustler was caught, the justice meted out could be anything. It wasn't until their formal constituation that they began to act as any form of law enforcement, but, rather than acting as any official law enforcement, they functioned as “peacekeepers,” ensuring the status quo. The majority of law enforcement beyond being range detectives, came in the form of assisting other departments and jurisdictions, aiding in missions such as capture and retrieve up to dead or alive bounties. Peacekeeping often came in the form of brutalisation and making examples of whomever they considered a foe. They were highly critcized for the multiple accusations of summary executions and confessions induced by torture and intimidation. SCALP-HUNTER GANGS Because of the constant expansion towards the west and the frontier that came along with it, governments started to offer rewards for the murdering of what they considered “hostile Indians.” The reward created scalp-hunter gangs, which profited off of these bounties, however, this often came at the cost of the local peaceful agricultural American Indians and Mexicans, as they used them to claim the bounty for scalps. Some of these scalp-hunter gangs came in the form of Rangers, who did it to earn an extra income atop their regular wages.
