Deputy Marshal John Cunningham
Male Dwarf Ranger
16 STR, 15 DEX, 13 CON, 12 INT, 12 WIS, 9 CHA
25HP, rifle 1d8 (6 shots), dagger 1d4

Deputy Marshal John Cunningham led the charge at Slaughter Gulch that routed a group of wild locals intent on raiding a local settlement. But he didn’t get any credit for this victory, all the plaudits going to his superior at the time who was actually asleep and drunk. Bitter over his stolen glory, Cunningham constantly feuds with Marshal Hopkins, considering the latter to be a braggart and a blowhard.

Deputy Marshal Buzz Hopkins
Male Elf Ranger
12 STR, 16 DEX, 13 CON
20HP, revolver 1d6 (7 shots), sword 1d6

Deputy Marshal Buzz Bopkins is renowned for putting away the O’Callahan Gang, one of the most notorious groups of outlaws and lawbreakers the area had ever seen. He has shamelessly ridden this event to local fame and local prosperity despite the fact that it was entirely luck–he happened upon the O’Callahans when their sentries were drunk and asleep. He constantly preens himself over this victory and feuds with Marshal Cunningham.

Caleb Jung
Male Human Bard
12 STR, 15 DEX, 14 CON, 16 INT, 12 WIS, 8 CHA
15HP, sword 1d6, revolved 1d4 (8 shots)

A perennial washout, Caleb Jung is nevertheless perpetually happy and upbeat despite working a series of terrible jobs like manure shoveler, manure wagoner, manure courier, and manuresmith. He is a constant fixture at any sort of trial or job opening where he thinks he can improve himself, but does not let his 100% failure rate get him down in the slightest.

Westminster Talbot
Male Elf Mage
9 STR, 13 DEX, 12 CON, 20 INT, 8 WIS, 10 CHA
10HP, rod 1d4, Magic Missile (5 uses), Charm Person (3 uses), Color Spray (2 uses), Fireball (1 use)

Scion of the Talbot Farms Talbots, the apple and apple cider and hard cider kings of the area, Talbot has a self-important and patrician air about him that even others from the same social strata find insufferable. His equipment is of the highest quality, amd he is not without skill, but he frequently finds that the only people who can stand to be around him are those he pays for their trouble.

Jasper Scuddemore
Male Half-Orc Barbarian
18 STR, 14 DEX, 17 CON, 10 INT, 9 WIS, 8 CHA
25HP, sword 1d8
Manservant to Westminster Talbot and raised with him since birth, Jasper Scuddemore is unflinchingly loyal to Talbot, advancing his cause and making excuses for him utterly selflessly. Unbeknownst to both Talbot and Jasper, they are half-brothers–Mr. Talbot having had a fling with Jedda Scuddemore, his half-orc former nurse.

Dr. Daniel Evans, Esq.
Male Elf Rogue
12 STR, 19 DEX, 10 CON, 18 INT, 9 WIS, 17 CHA
15 HP, revolver 1d10 (5 shots), dagger 1d4

A gambler and ne’er-do-well, Evans tends to pepper his speech with Latinate malapropisms that he believes make him sound smarter. He has a reputation as a fierce card player and as the slayer of notorious bandit “Gravedigger Perkins,” both undeserved. In reality, Evans is a poor player that relies on cheating and braggadocio to win, and he merely convinced Evans to commit suicide rather than submit to capture. Despite this, he does have an avowed soft spot for those who are down on their luck.
