JACK CARSON - Male / 41-50 yrs. / Any Ethnicity. Jack Carson, who was simply a farm-owning family man, lost his family and farm to a bandit attack. He now seeks vengeance as a bounty hunter, not from the particular bandits that murdered his family but from bandits and lawbreakers in general.

KID CALLOWAY - Male / 25-40 yrs. / Any Ethnicity. Kid Calloway was born into a life where everything was provided to him. He ends up on the lawless side of life and simply continues his lifestyle of him getting what he wants, one way or another. He haunts the roads near Whiskey Peak, robbing any unlucky soul who should use his road.

ISAAC - Male / 35-50yrs./ Any Ethnicity. Isaac the bartender and owner of the Whiskey Peak Trading Post set up his shop long ago while there was good commerce in the area due to the nearby mine.
