Deadlands: No Man's Land
Sam is the owner and bar tender at the Desert Moon. He’s a handsome young man who worked on a cattle ranch in Yuma. When he heard about the town of Fortune Falls rising up he took his savings, got a loan from the owner of the ranch, grabbed a pretty little Mexican whore named Martina (mostly cause he was sweet on her), and set north to open his very own Saloon. He wasn’t disappointed. Fortune Falls was growing quick and there was plenty to be made there. In a couple of months he had paid back the 500 dollar loan and was making money for himself. The only problem with the town was it’s boss and the way he corrupted it like consumption. When one of Finch’s men, Mean Pete beat Martina bloody for spilling his drink Sam had had enough. Sam through the drunken Irishman into the street. The next morning Mean Pete returned with more of Finch’s men. Sam was beat near to death, they cut off his left ear, and took turns on Martina. After that he kept a low profile, there was no one he could take the issue to after all so he just tries to keep the peace, at least in his saloon. He has hired on two more girls, a buxom blonde named Sally and an Indian girl he got in a trade that every has taken to calling Pony for lack of any other name and her very limited english. Sam’s brought on a slow boy from town name Zeke to help clean-up and whatnot. The boys as big as an ox but anyone who knows him knows Zeke would cry a week if he even killed a fly. Sam does his best to protect those he can by using what he has, The Desert Moon but as Finch’s men have shown him in the past that isn’t much of a shield. Sam has no love for Finch or any of his men and isn’t shy about the fact.
