Jack Cooper

    Seasoned Male Human, MARS Gunslinger, and Gunfighter
    Iconic Framework: MARS Gunslinger

    Background

    A crack shot from a young age and a young man who wanted nothing more than to protect his people from the lawless he jumped at the chance when he was asked to join the Justice Rangers. Over the next six years Jack worked tirelessly to track down criminals, bandits and anyone else that threatened the peace. Unlike some of his comrades in the Rangers, Jack wasn't comfortable playing judge and executioner for his quarries.

    When he could he'd bring them in alive to face a proper trial in front of a proper jury but one way or the other he'd bring in his quarry even if it were slung over the back of a horse. Of course Jack might always bring in his fugitive that didn't always mean he came back in one piece. More than a few times he came back in not much better shape than the fugitive. The Rangers took care of their own and they always put him back together quicker, stronger and faster than before. Then one day a rumor spread around town that Jack had turned in his badge. No one knew why but everyone agreed it must have been bad for Jack to quit so sudden like that and by the next sunrise Jack had ridden out of town never to be seen again in those parts.

    Over the next few years Jack drifted North working as a mercenary or a bounty hunter for different groups. Once he even signed on as a combat medic of all things and he was surprised as anyone to find out he was pretty good at it. Most of the time though he was hired because he had the fastest gun hand around. Jack might not be a Ranger anymore but he still takes his oath seriously so even if his interpretation might be a little more flexible than it used to be. Whenever an employer crossed one line too many it was time for Jack to move on. These days Jack finds himself in Northern Gun territory where more often than not he feels like a fish out of water in these "civilized" spaces but there is work to be found here so he figures to stick around a while.
