ABRAHAM LEWIN: TAKEN
Abraham “Bram” Lewin is a name known from Blackacre to Twin Gulch and back again. It’s a name feared by civilians, hated by his enemies, and respected by his allies. He’s the alpha and gang leader for Farrow Creek and has been in the basin since the lycans first drove the Conclave from it back in 1822 after a long, bloody war. It left many casualties on both sides, including the previous alpha who was fatally wounded in the final battle against Amaranthe and her vampires. Bram stepped up and took his rightful place as alpha and has been leading them to prosperity ever since. It wasn’t long after the war that the Farrow Creek pack began to make a name for themselves as being no-good rotten criminals, thieves, and all around unsavory folks - with the infamous Abraham Lewin at the head of the posse. He is violently protective of his territory and his people and would (and has, on some occasions) take a bullet for each and every one of them. Very few have the wherewithal to put up with his tempers and outbursts, but most of the gang still shows him the utmost respect… even if they don’t like him as a person. Aggression and anger issues aside, he’s one hell of a leader and a decent man, if you took the time to get to know him.

JAVIER VASQUEZ: OPEN
Before he was Bram’s beta, Javier was a Highwayman - most recently under the direction of the human Highwayman Captain Adelaide O’Connor. He did not like answering to a woman, a human one at that… even if she was a tough broad. At first Javier found it hard to take her seriously and often acted without her permission, causing tension and often heated arguments to erupt. Despite his feelings about a woman trying to command in a man's world, Javier was always content with his position in the gang as nothing more than a highwayman… even if he did everything to make Adelaide’s life hell. In an effort to help stall tensions, Bram moved Javier from under Adelaide’s command and made him beta to the pack. He was one of the original Farrow Creek members and was there at Bram’s side when they drove the vampires from their land. He’s always been a little aggressive towards new members and does his best to test them out or put them through the ringer. His teasing often comes off as a little aggressive or moody, but in reality he would do anything for the pack.

ADELAIDE O’CONNOR: OPEN
Adelaide was the only daughter to a local rancher but had three older brothers to round the family out. Liam O’Connor did his best to keep his daughter away from the gang life that ran rampant in the basin, but when her brothers were all killed in a mixup with the Grayhollow gang Adelaide took up her guns and threw in her hat with Farrow Creek. She’s smart as a whip and was quick to figure out the gang’s supernatural affliction, calling out Bram privately after only a few short months under his command. Being a human meant she had to work twice as hard to earn her place among them, and work hard she did. Bram was so amused with her tenacity and fire that shortly after she was promoted to Highwayman Captain, much to the chagrin of the men she was tasked to command. Many of them felt a woman – a human one at that – didn’t have any authority in the gang. She quickly whipped most of them into shape and proved them wrong with a few sharp words and a handful of well-placed shots. She is one of the few humans that Bram willingly respects and he makes it explicitly clear to the less welcoming lycans in the gang that she holds her position for a reason. She is also one of the very few people in the gang – human and lycan both – that doesn’t shy away from their leader’s temper and can hold her own against Abraham. When Bram gets in a mood and the rest of the men cower in fear of his retribution, Adelaide seems to be the only one willing to weather the storm, roll her eyes, and tell him to get his shit together.

NICHOLAS ROMAN: TAKEN
When it comes to stubborn, grumpy old men Nick takes the cake. He’s the oldest living Farrow Creek member. At 272 years old, Nick’s wisdom in those years show in his actions every day. It’s how he’s lived this long. He’s an enforcer for the Farrow Creek gang so it’s his job to make sure the gang stays in line. Like the big lumbering papa bear he is, he’s a cranky, cantankerous old bastard who’s traded in his young gunslingin’ days for something a little more mature. That’s hardly to say that he’s a pushover. He’s a strong and deadly fighter who relies mostly on brute strength and wading through the battlefield instead of sitting back and picking people off from the sidelines. He’s extremely protective of the gang, especially the womenfolk. But the old adage speaks true – don’t poke a sleeping bear.

SAMUEL GRAYSON: OPEN
Samuel’s mother – Elena – was Javier Vasquez’s younger sister, though the siblings were not close very close as they never saw eye to eye. Elena was a lycan like her brother, but she did not approve of their bestial nature. She called it a curse and moved north to Colorado with her human lover to raise her newborn son in a “normal” home with “normal” folks. Their happiness was short-lived when an accident befell the two Grayson parents leaving an orphaned twelve year old boy. Adrian went north to collect the boy as he knew humans weren't capable of a properly raising the boy but was surprised to discover his nephew wasn’t one of them at all. He was human, like his father, but that didn’t seem to stop him from proving to his uncle he was capable. Adrian took Samuel under his wing and Sam was welcomed into the gang when he was old enough. As it turns out he was an extremely skilled rider and knew how to handle a weapon with ease. He didn’t turn out to be the aggressive brute like his uncle but has proven more than once that he knows how to show deadly force when necessary. He’s extremely loyal to the gang that helped raise him and has devoted his life to Farrow Creek. He knows what his mother was and what Adrian is and has wrestled with his identity for a long time wondering if he can truly live up to his full potential if he stays human.

AIYANI CHOSOVI: OPEN
Aiyani was raised among a small community in the deep in Mexico’s desert. They were of a mix of human, lycan, Comanche, and Hispanic people that survived on what the earth provided them. She lived in a world where she was always equal to her fellow raiders – all expected to become warriors and all were held to the same standards. She became an expert hunter and tracker, though she grew bored of the same old haunts. Eventually Aiyani chose to leave her tribe and venture out on her own, dreaming of something bigger and better. During her travels she met all walks of life – some friendly, some not. The friendly types were left with a piece of sage wisdom. The unkind ones were often left with an equally unkind end. It was only a few years ago that she came upon Abraham Lewin and his Farrow Creek boys. Tensions of a rogue wolf in his territory made Bram wary, though Aiyani eventually gained his trust by proving her skills as a tracker were highly valuable. Her half-Comanche heritage and the fact that she was an outsider made it difficult for some of the gang to trust her, but Aiyani has remained relatively indifferent about the coy glares or smart remarks. She comes equipped with a thick skin and enough wit to cut her own words into their hides.

WOHALI: OPEN
Wohali is the Farrow Creek gang’s resident trader and fencing expert. He runs the trading post and general store at the Bitter Falls Outpost, bringing in the goods they need while selling off the goods they acquire. He was from a local Cherokee tribe that had been in the basin long before the war with the Conclave and Farrow Creek, but he met up with the victorious lycan pack shortly after. He’s the one that lef Abraham and his boys to the abandoned Bitter Falls outpost and helped them set up shop. Wohali has many contacts in Blackacre and Twin Gulch and has managed to fence their stolen goods for decades without being caught. Though older than many, he is still as spry and nimble as he was during his years as a tracker for his tribe. He may be the gang’s trader, but he is still a lycan and understand the power that comes with it. He is capable of deadly force and has used it on more than one occasion to protect the secrets her keeps for the gang.

WILLA CHE: OPEN
As a young woman in New York City Willa loitered in society and steadily grew bored with the luxury her family was able to provide her. Her father had been an importer of exotic goods from her mother’s homeland of China, but despite all of the wealth the provided her she had she found it held little of interest. That is until she met dashing older gentleman that turned out to be a little more wild than she’d expected. Their infatuation – however brief – left her infected with the lycanthropy gene roughly 30 years ago. She’s hardly a pup in age compared to many others and because she wasn’t born into their ways she sees the world through a whole different set of eyes. Willa’s lack of experience and age makes her often underestimated, but she hardly lets that stop her. She’s decided to spend her novice years as a lycan learning from her elders and trying her hand at running with a gang. She finds the freedom enthralling but doesn’t quite yet have the stomach for the more gruesome aspects of gang life. Instead she tends to find other ways to prove her worth such as using her quick hands to liberate folks from their belt purses or keys to safes.

VICTOR AVERY: OPEN
If you asked any member of the Grayhollow Gang who Victor Avery was, it would be an even tossup between “He’s keepin’ us together best he can”, “He ain’t fit to lead”, and “He’s a goddamn, rotten murderer”. Who you ask strongly depends on what they believe of him. With the sudden and mysterious disappearance of their former leader and alpha a few months ago, Victor’s been left with some big shoes to fill. He’s never been a quiet man about his ambitions for the gang or what he thought they were capable of, so when Old Fuss disappeared it was natural for some people to suspect him having a hand in the old man’s disappearance. The problem with that? He didn’t actually do it. Rufus’ disappearance was as much a surprise to him as it was to the rest of the gang, but not everyone is so convinced. The overwhelming animosity and suspicion has made it difficult for him to keep the gang under control and it’s beginning to wear on him He’s becoming short-tempered and aggressive in an effort to force them to submit to his command. There are even rumors flying that some of the gang members want to challenge him for alpha. Were it not for the love of his wife Helene, he may have never survived taking over as alpha.

HELENE AVERY: OPEN
Helene Avery is a woman not to be underestimated. Like many of the pretty faces in Twin Gulch, it’s easy to assume she’s little more than that – but behind those dark eyes is a mastermind of devious little tricks and cunning wit. They say behind every great man is a greater woman – that couldn’t be more true about the two Twin Gulch alphas. Helene is as much an adviser to Victor as she is a wife, and despite all the rumors about their involvement in Rufus Buck’s disappearance, she had nothing to do with it. It wasn’t like she hadn’t thought about overthrowing Old Fuss to get Victor in position for alpha, but she wasn’t a killer – at least not when it came to her own people. Old Fuss was as much a father to her as he was to all of them and – though she had strong ambitions for power – she would have at least had the pride to face him directly with a challenge. Despite all of that, she is wholly devoted to her husband and mate and does whatever she can to support him in trying to keep the gang together. Some might even say that she’s pulling the strings from behind a curtain, but who could really tell anyway?

SILAS MURPHY: OPEN
When it comes to pack loyalty, there are few that outmatch Silas Murphy. As a general rule of thumb, Silas isn’t one to easily trust others. However when he does devote himself to a person’s command, he pledges himself fully because they’ve earned it. It as one of the reasons he left the army under Rufus Buck’s command. The humans leading his small band of milita were cowards and liars – Old Fuss was anything but. Rufus and Silas were good friends, so news of his disappearance perhaps affected him more than the others. The sudden and mysterious nature of it all left him with a bad taste in his mouth and led him only to believe one certain truth: Victor Avery was behind it to seize power as alpha. It’s not yet been proven of course, but the murmers have begun spreading to a few others in the gang. Silas was loyal to Rufus Buck and he doesn’t trust the Averys as far as he can throw them. But accusing your pack’s alpha of being an insidious mutineer isn’t exactly showing loyalty to the gang. He’s a stern but passionate man and when he speaks others tend to listen. But he’s yet to make a move to challenge. Would Rufus have wanted his disappearance and possible murder avenged, or would he have wanted him to stay loyal to his boys?

THOMAS O’MALLEY: OPEN
Thomas O’Malley is one of the oldest living members of the Grayhollow gang. He and Old Fuss Buck were very close in their younger days of running with different gangs and O’Malley was there with Rufus when he formed the first posse that eventually became the Grayhollow boys. He promised Old Fuss he’d be there till the end. Thomas never truly showed an ambition for power for himself. He was content with being an adviser and second in command to his friend and alpha, sharing the wisdom of his two-hundred and odd years with a great leader to support. Despite the bloody past of his younger years as a fledgling lycan and bandit, Thomas is a good man at heart. He’s fiercely protective of those in the gang and is also a mentor of sorts to new members. He has a need to watch over and protect others and – despite his calm nature – he’s capable of incredible and deadly force when it calls. His age may have calmed his arrogant, gunslinger attitude, but it has done little to dampen his skills. To honor his promise to Rufus, he’s taken it upon himself to personally watch over the girls at the Henbane, acting as much as a bouncer to the saloon in addition to being a common customer. Louisiana assures him she is quite capable of protecting the girls herself but despite her arguments, he keeps a watchful eye on her as Rufus once had.

REBECCA BECKETT: TAKEN
Rebecca “Louisiana” Beckett may be a human living among wolves, but there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that they’re more afraid of her than she is of them. Her life before the gang was filled with cruelty – a lifetime of being tossed around from man to man across the West was the only way for the young Beckett to survive on her own. She began to grow jaded and bitter – until a strange man came across her bed one night. His name was Rufus Buck and he was unlike any man she’d met before. He didn’t want to use her and abuse her like the others did… he simply wanted her companionship. Rufus spent three nights with her, lounging in her bed and sharing bottles of whiskey. He was so considerate of her that Rebecca genuinely felt bad about trying to stab him and rob him of his money on the forth night... not that it stopped her. As Old Fuss lay slumbering Rebecca mustered her resolve and slipped a dagger between his ribs. He awoke with such a ferocious roar and such force that she broke two ribs when he swatted her against the wall like she was a fly. Through a bloody, amused grin he offered her a job right there on the spot. He promised she would always have a warm bed, hot food, and good liquor. What he actually gave was the Henbane and she’s been running it ever since. That was over ten years ago and the little human spitfire has gathered a frightful reputation among the Grayhollow boys – you don’t fuck with Louisiana or her girls. However, Rufus’ recent disappearance has broken her. He was her one constant and now that he’s gone something in her snapped. The once proud, bright woman was now emotionally distant and guarded. To those who don’t intimately know her still see the fierce, protective “mama” of the brothel… but those who know her well have begun to notice the change.

CATALINA ORTEGA: OPEN
Catalina Ortega was one of Louisiana’s favored whores in the Henbane for years and she was commonly requested by name. Even Old Fuss visited her often and she always reveled in his company. She took great pleasure in her job as a brothel whore – both emotionally and physically. Her nature made her pre-disposed to seeking out physical contact, so she fit right in among Louisiana’s girls when she and her sister showed up on Rebecca’s doorstep years ago. Catalina became a Hen and Carmela worked off her debt behind the bar. But lusting and lounging in bed can only do so much for a woman with a heart for adventure. After her sister’s recent disappearance Cat has found she was listless and bored with her lot in life. She wasn’t content anymore with just being one of the Henbane’s hens. With that in mind she made the decision to hang up the corsets in exchange for gun holsters to try her hand at the gang life. Old Fuss encouraged her transition from brothel to bandit, though now that Rufus is no longer around Victor isn’t quite as welcoming as the former alpha. She’s had to use all of her wiles and skills to prove she has every right to be there.

WYATT CUSTER: OPEN
Wyatt has been working with guns since he was old enough to hold one and his knowledge shows in the meticulous nature with which he crafts them. He started like many other wayward children did growing up in the harsh West – by running guns and hanging with the wrong crowds. When he was fifteen his life took a turn for the better when a local gunsmith – one that he’d actually been holding up for cash – offered to share with him his knowledge on how to build and craft them instead of just pointing them at strangers. Wyatt decided it was time to do something better with his life and became the gunsmith’s apprentice. It was easy to see he was skilled with them and excelled quickly in the craft, but there still wasn’t much in the way of profits for the small smith himself. Somehow Wyatt always knew that he wouldn’t be able to escape the gang life for good and he wasn’t even sure entirely that’s what he wanted. So when the leader of the Grayhollow Gang made him an offer to join them and keep the gang outfitted with high-quality, functioning weapons or be run out of town – young Custer quickly obliged. Wyatt knows that while Victor’s ever critical eye on his doings may not be ideal, but the sharpshooter has proven more than once that he knows how to handle a gun with the rest of them.

THEODOSIA WAITE: OPEN
Theodosia isn’t the typical bandit that you’d expect to see running around with the Grayhollow boys. She wasn’t really the brutish or aggressive sort. Unlike many of the thugs with which she throws in her lot, she was a highly intelligent, analytically-minded creature of habit. Due to circumstances in her past that forced her to leave her home, she was forced to make it in the world on her own. When it came to surviving, she found a life running as a scout for the Grayhollow gang. Her quiet, soft-footed nature and bright young mind made her a valuable asset to Rufus Fuss and his boys, even forgoing the fact that she was such a young lycan, infected only a few years before. She tends to stay out of direct confrontations or fights and prefers to keep an eye on things from a distance. Theodosia has proven herself time and time again by putting her talents to good use.

The conclave
AMARANTHE HARGRAVE: OPEN
Amaranthe Hargrave is the current queen of The Conclave in the Northwest Basin and she is a monarch scorned. The original rulers of the land, the vampires were driven from their home back in 1822 by the Farrow Creek lycan pack that had moved in and taken over. Where the vampires fled to was unknown, but it was without a doubt that the queen spent the last fifty years obsessing over vengeance and a bloodlust for revenge. Some say that her obsession over the wolves has driven her mad in the last few decades – those people seem to disappear. Her grip on reality seems to be waning as she spends her nights plotting with her advisers to take back the basin for the vampires. Her obsession is fueled by a demand of unyielding loyalty and any who seem to be second-guessing her are swiftly punished. Once a capable and competent leader, it seems that she is beginning to lose touch with what is best for the Conclave and is concerned more with what it takes to exact her revenge. Her cruelty and ability to command with fear, however, remains unaffected.

AMBROSIA HARGRAVE: OPEN
Ambrosia is the blood sister of Amaranthe Hargrave, as well as her blood-bound fledgling. She was sired by Amaranthe two centuries ago and - like her sister – managed to narrowly escape the war with the lycans with her life. Though they share the same blood, the two sisters do not seem to share opinions on how to deal with the lycans with which they now share their home. Ambrosia does not condone her sister’s obsession with the lycans. She is watching her sister slowly begin to unravel and watching the queen she once respected become a monster. Her sister is putting her own people in danger to carry out her absurd obsession with eliminating the wolves – and Ambrosia refuses to sit by and watch. She is working quietly to form an alliance with other like-minded vampires in an effort to foster peace between the two races, all the while still working as an adviser to her sister. She is trying to turn her sister back to the right patch but she will do whatever it takes to make sure her people don’t suffer another near-extinction. If that means deposing her sister and taking the crown… so be it.

HAGAN ROURKE: OPEN
Hagan Rourke has been a part of The Conclave for nearly two and a half centuries and is among the oldest living remaining. His young face hides his aged wisdom well and he is extremely persuasive when it comes to getting what he wants. He holds high ambitions for power and has courted the queen on more than one occasion, landing him the powerful position as the Conclave’s sentinel – or second in command. It’s his job to advise the queen on all matters and execute her orders by any means necessary. The fact that he has free reign to punish others as he sees fit is merely an added bonus. It was at Hagan’s insistence that Amaranth bring the Conclave back to the Northwind Basin and it was his whispering in her ear that drove her to obsession. He was there for the war with the lycans and it was his pride that was mortally wounded when they turned tail and fled the basin. They were the superior beings – the evolution of mankind. Vampires would bring about the fall of humanity to make way for something better… he wasn’t going to let a pack of mongrels stop them from accomplishing that. Hagan also led the ambush that kidnapped and murdered the former Grayhollow alpha, Rufus Buck, several months ago when the Conclave moved back into the basin. He uses and manipulates humans to his advantage, going so far as to make willing servants of them to act as his eyes and ears in Blackacre and Twin Gulch. One way or another, Hagan is determined to bring the Conclave back into power in the basin.

DELILAH BURKHART: OPEN
The Conclave isn’t known for welcoming many humans into their ranks, especially considering their elusive and secretive nature. The more humans they allow to know about them, the higher at risk they are for their survival in the wolf-run basin. Though many saw them as little more than a nuisance or a plentiful food source, a few vampires such as Hagan Rourke saw their potentials for something more. Delilah was one of the humans that may have started as nothing more than a small meal, but was quickly enraptured by the mystery and allure of the vampires. She became enthralled with Hagan Rourke after a chance encounter just outside Twin Gulch. Hagan knew an opportunity when he saw one and he promised her wealth and power and everything her dark little mind could imagine… all if she swore to serve him and the Conclave. Delilah was eager to accept. As a girl with no real family to speak of, she was infatuated with the idea of belonging to something bigger than herself. At Hagan’s behest, Delilah became a spy for the Conclave as a saloon girl at the Henbane. She feeds information back to the Conclave regarding Grayhollow’s whereabouts and plans right under their nose in the hopes of gaining the Conclave’s favor. She remains hopeful of her future with the vampires, but so far Hagan has been less than upfront about the promises he made.

ARMAND COULSON: TAKEN
When the Conclave moved back into the basin after their long exile, their numbers needed to be replenished with new blood. They also required people on the outside to keep them informed and provide them with what they needed to be able to hide in plain sight. What the vampires needed were known people in strategic positions – what Armand Giovanni needed was a cure to a disease that was slowly killing him. He was a local black-market merchant that dealt in the more exotic and not exactly legal items that came through the basin. He was a skilled dealer and could acquire almost anything – for the right price. If you needed something that you didn’t know how to get, you came to him. Unfortunately, years ago his health began to quickly decline. The doctors didn’t know what was killing him but one thing was certain… he’d be dead within the year. When all hope seemed lost, he was when he was approach by a vampire with a unique proposition: provide goods and supplies to the Conclave and be their eyes and ears in the Basin to help ensure their survival, and in return he would receive a second life. Armand knew a good opportunity when he saw one – he accepted. Since the Turning Armand has been fencing goods and funds for the Conclave through his contacts in Blackacre and Twin Gulch. He provides support and acquires whatever they need to ensure their survival in the basin.

CARMELA ORTEGA: TAKEN
The Ortega sisters grew up in Blackacre under the care of their drunken, incompetent uncle. They never knew what had happened to their parents as their uncle spoke very little of them except to say they “saddled him with their two brats”. Their home life wasn’t terrible – it was just boring. Catalina and Carmela yearned for adventure, so when the two were old enough they set off on their own. Eventually they landed in Twin Gulch on the doorstep of the Henbane, where Louisiana Beckett welcomed the two girls with open arms. The two stuck around for a few days, then eventually a few weeks. Before they knew it they were employed – Cat thrived as a lady of entertainment while Carmela preferred to serve the clients from behind the bar. It was here that she fell into a pair of dark eyes – and soon thereafter – into his bed. She became enthralled with the man who returned to visit her night after night until one night she found herself following him deep into The Wilds at his behest. She felt compelled to follow and didn’t seem to have the voice to say no when he called her. He explained what he was and promised all of those gifts and more that he could bestow upon her, if she would accept it. So drawn to him that she was she did not hesitate to accept… but she didn’t know the cost at which it came until it was too late. Her Turning happened a few months ago and she is still struggling with her newly developed “affliction”. Carmela is still struggling to learn to control her newfound instincts and bloodlust, but she’s also too ashamed to face her sister again. She remains loyal to the Conclave more as a formality and for her own safety rather than duty at this point and remains indifferent to their cause. She had no personal interest in the impending fight with the lycans, but she is also fully aware that the queen would have her slaughtered if she chose to run. She’s been hearing whispers of the queen’s sister and her plans to rock the boat. They were only rumors, sure… but they peaked her interest.

JOSEPH BOONE: OPEN
The irony of Joseph’s lot in life is not lost on many. As a man he was a devout Christian, praising the lord and welcoming his flock into the church every Sunday to ask for forgiveness for the wicked they’ve committed. Even now as a vampire Joseph preaches the word of God, although his take on the matter entirely is a little more holy than most. Joseph’s Turning was a religious experience for him – he saw it as his salvation, a second chance from God to rid the world of the wicked and evil people by granting him power to do so. He feels righteousness in all he does and rationalizes his brutality in sermons of punishment and repent. Although Queen Amaranthe doesn’t necessarily share his views, she will welcome him as a member of the Conclave for as long as the work he does “for the lord” benefit her. He is a cold and delusional man who truly believes that what he does is God’s will and that he speaks with his voice. The god-fearing folks of Blackacre and Twin Gulch listen, though many are beginning to suspect that the “night preacher” isn’t quite all the pious man he portrays.

OPHELIA LAWSON: OPEN
Ophelia isn’t what one would call a laborer. Coming from a wealthy family out east, she was raised on a lifestyle of luxury and wealth and expects to be pampered and showered with finery and gifts. She tends to attach herself to men with wealth and fame and drops them the instant they cease to appease her. Ophelia is no stranger to using her feminine wiles to her advantage and is an expert hunter when it comes to finding people to sustain her (both monetarily and in terms of her dinner). When she stumbled upon the Conclave in the basin Ophelia immediately hitched herself to Queen Amaranthe’s wagon. The woman was powerful and had ambitions similar to Ophelia’s, so it was natural for her to quickly gain the queen’s favor and become part of her inner circle. She is loyal to whomever is able to uphold their promises of wealth and power, so for the moment she finds herself backing Amaranthe’s endeavors to take back the basin.

EDISON HURLEY: OPEN
The tale of Edsion Hurley begins in Twin Gulch and if he’s not careful, it will end in Twin Gulch – and relatively soon. As a young man with a belly full of pride and a pocket full of meager earnings, he took up post as a deputy in Twin Gulch when he was old enough. His skills made it easy for him to quickly make a name for himself as being the deputy with the best shot in three counties. He could out-gun and out-ride almost any man or woman for miles and it wasn’t long before he became a well-known name and face in the basin. But the years were not kind to Edison. Only a few short years after their nuptials, a bought a scarlet fever took both his wife and his young son away from him. Unable to cope with their loss, he turned to drowning himself in the drink, gambling, and other vices simply to put himself out of his misery. Years of abusing alcohol and leading a generally poor lifestyle led to severe nerve damage and suddenly he wasn’t such a crack shooter anymore. So maybe that’s why when Rufus “Old Fuss” Buck from the Grayhollow gang came into his town and offered to strike a deal, the old dog relented. Grayhollow keeps his pockets lined and his bottles full and he lets their minor transgressions slide. Some of the young deputies in Twin Gulch are determined to oust the belligerent old bastard, but they’ve not had any success yet.

WAYLAN DRAKE: TAKEN
Waylan Drake is Twin Gulch’s resident sane person. In all of the chaos of life settling the American west, it’s sometimes hard to find a little piece of rationality in it all. That is what Waylan is trying to provide to the residents of the basin. He is a deputy for the Twin Gulch sheriff’s department and is about as contrary to Edison Hurley as anyone can get. Dedicated, helpful, and selfless, he steps in to protect those who can’t protect themselves and does whatever he can to make his town safe from the local gang threats… even if that means stepping on the sheriff’s toes every once in a while. Though Waylan has no solid evidence that the Grayhollow gang is paying of Hurley to let them get away with their dirty business in his town, he’s convinced the old sheriff is in their pocket and he’s damn sure going to find a way to prove it. He knows the man is as crooked as they come. When he’s not digging for dirt on Hurley, Waylan is the good ‘ol fashioned helpful sort who spends his time keeping the peace with the petty criminal squabbles of locals. Most recently, he’s been spending time at the Marlow ranch helping his childhood friend Charlotte get back on her feet. It doesn’t seem like the hard life of the west has broken his spirit yet.

CHARLOTTE MARLOW: TAKEN
For over a decade, Marlow Ranch has been one the most profitable businesses in the territory. Charles Marlow worked the land with his own two hands from the ground up until he was producing and selling most of the cattle and horses that came in and out of basin. He quickly amassed a large wealth in money and land – both of which were coveted by the greedy Judge Sawyer who owned the sawmill that neighbored the ranch. When an accident brought his short life to an end, his properties and care of the ranch fell to the eldest of two daughters, Charlotte “Charlie” Marlow. As the eldest daughter to a rancher with no sons, Charlotte naturally fell into the role of the no-nonsense women who spent her entire life up to her elbows in dust and manure. The plan had always been for the ranch to be passed down to her – she just hadn’t expected it so suddenly. Despite all of the support and help from the ranch’s staff and her childhood friend Deputy Drake, Charlie has never felt more alone. She’s struggling with keeping the ranch going from her simple lack of business knowledge and a lingering suspicion of Judge Sawyer’s involvement in her father’s convenient passing nags at her daily. But she pulls herself up by her bootstraps and keeps pushing forward. She and her sister are all they have left of eachother so she resolves to stay strong… even if it’s just for Cordelia’s sake.

CORDELIA MARLOW: TAKEN
Cordelia had always been daddy’s little girl. She was never really spoiled or treated differently, but as a young daughter of a wealthy ranch owner she didn’t want for much. But papa was always good about making sure it didn’t come for free. He instilled a hearty work-ethic in the Marlow girls and Cordelia was always willing to lend a hand when she could . But her father’s sudden death had affected her in ways she hadn’t expected. She was a kind and gentle woman, never really having found reason to stray far from the ranch – why would she? Everything she ever needed was there. Her father, her sister, her horses – what more could a girl want for? But after Charles’ death Cordelia felt an emptiness inside that couldn’t be satisfied by the simple pleasures that she used to enjoy. She began growing curious about life outside the ranch. The stories of rustlers and gangs fed her curiosity more than any other, though Charlotte does her best to keep her younger sister from becoming too curious about them. She doesn’t mean to make Charlie worry – she just can’t help but feel like there’s more out there for her.

JUDGE SAWYER: TAKEN
Judge Sawyer was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. His family came from old money in the basin and he is very careful with his fortunes. When it comes to finances Sawyer is a careful man, only investing in what he is certain will prosper. He acts like he owns the basin – as far as many townsfolk are concerned he might as well. The only other economic contender in the area besides Sawyer’s Sawmill was the Marlow Ranch, the sprawling livestock producer with which the mill shares a border. Judge has spent decades trying to run Charles Marlow off his land so he could acquire it, but to no luck. Coincidental then it seemed for Judge Sawyer that the late Charles Marlow had an unfortunate “accident” that left the ranch in the fumbling hands of his eldest daughter, Charlotte. Judge Sawyer was not an honest man by any means and he knew an opportunity when he saw one. People suspect he had a hand in Charles’ death, but nobody has ever been able to prove him anything shy of a law abiding family man. He has been married twice in his life, both wives dying before him but the first leaving him with a beautiful daughter. Sawyer is also aware of the supernaturals that lurk in the basin, though nobody is quite sure how. He keeps this knowledge a secret – for now – and pockets it away for when it becomes advantageous of him to exploit it.

ADEWALE CORSAIR: OPEN
Adewale and his wife had been slaves to a wealthy cotton plantation owner in the Carolinas long ago. During the war the two smuggled, cheated, and fought their way to freedom, eventually escaping down south to Mexico. Their lives weren’t perfect, but they had eachother and they were happy… for a time. The truth about what happened to his wife isn’t really known. When the subject matter is brought up, it is often met with violent animosity and careful deflection and folks often learn after the first outburst to never ask about it again. Adewale arrived in the Northwind Basin territory over a decade ago. He had an eye for weaponry and knew the best guns when he saw them. It seemed he also had a knack for procuring difficult items when others couldn’t, which made him very popular among outlaws and lawmen alike. What he couldn’t get his hands on, he’d craft himself. Despite their best efforts, threats from both the Farrow Creek gang and Grayhollow gang in an effort to dissuade him from peddling his goods to the other fell on deaf ears again and again. Both pack alphas had tried their hand at forcing the rogue to submit more than once, but Adewale was a tough old bastard who had been through enough real bullshit to ignore the petty squabbles of two packs. Eventually the packs grew bored of his tactics and learned to just leave the old rogue alone so long as he promised to keep supplying them with weapons, which he did – so long as they kept paying him.

DIEGO RAMOS: TAKEN
Diego Ramos isn’t like the rest of his vampire brethren, and even calling them that turns his stomach at the thought. He doesn’t like to think of himself as being anything close to the monsters that the rest of them were. After his turning, he and his sire parted ways on less than amicable terms as they could not see eye to eye on how their kind should act. His sire was a true vampire and saw humans for what they were – prey that served a single purpose in feeding them. Diego was an honorable man and even after his turning he found it difficult to seduce or trick others into becoming his dinner. After their separation Diego settled in Blackacre and naturally fell into the skills of his former life as a butcher, putting them to good use and managing to carve a life for himself. He survives nearly exclusively on the blood of the animals he slaughters and has absolutely zero interest in the affairs of the Conclave one way or another. If he had any choice in the matter, they’d leave him alone… but the queen isn’t so keen on having rogue vampires in her territory and he is finding it more and more difficult to hide from the people she sends after him.

VIOLET SAWYER: OPEN
Unlike her father, Violet is blissfully unaware of the supernaturals that lurk in the basin. She has always been a curious woman who yearned to see life outside of her father’s grasp. Being the only daughter to Judge Sawyer isn’t an easy occupation, especially when half the town hates your father or suspects him of murder. Loving her father isn’t an easy task either – he’s difficult to get along with and being his daughter only made him harsher in the rules he set for her. When she was old enough, Violet left her father’s home in search of pursuing her own passion that seemed to directly counteract her father’s – helping others. She began to study medicine in whatever fashion she could get her hands on. At first it was simply working with the local ranchers and breeders to help them with the care of their livestock until the local doctor in towndecided to take her under his wing and show her what he knew. Though she has no formal medical training, he’s taught her almost everything she knows and she’s eager to learn more. She’s trying to best to live outside of her father’s shadow, but sometimes a name like ‘Sawyer’ is enough to hold you back. Violet is determined not to let her father’s reputation outlive her.
