Physical Description


Traits & Characteristics


"A decent cowboy don't take what belongs to someone else and if he does, well then, he deserves to be strung up and left for the flies and coyotes."

  • Frank tends to be a mild mannered and unassuming sort.   He's introverted by nature, though certainly enjoys having a friend to bend an elbow with once in awhile, swapping tall tales, scuttlebutt, and maybe even a few jokes. His quiet ways lead folks to under estimate him, which suits him just fine.
  • If anyone needs help, whether it's with roundin' up cattle that got out during a storm, trackin' down a horse thief, or just diggin' fence posts, they never need to ask more than once.
  • Bad with money - it just seems to burn a hole right through his pocket.  




Ranch Hand - (1857 - 1861)

Confederate Army - Cavalry (1861 - 1865)

Bounty Hunter - (1867 - current)


Horses - He's always had a good knack for horses and by the time he was a teenager, was breaking colts and taking on the 'problem' horses to see if he could turn them around. Much to his mother's dismay, he also took to racing them on the track and spent a little bit of time as a jockey. But ultimately, he was too tall to take it very far.

Cows - he learned more about cows than he really cared to know during his time as a ranch hand

Guns - As a country boy, Frank's been shooting longer than he can remember.  Growing up, it was mostly utilizing his pa's hunting rifle.  During the war, he got plenty of practice with a wider variety of firearms.
