“Gunslingers are a dime a dozen but decapitate a man with a sword and suddenly you’ve got yourself a reputation.”

Gunfighter, bounty hunter, mercenary, lawman, Though generally regarded as one of the good guys, Vitruvius Pike has a history of cleansing with blood and fire. After the War of the Rebellion, he traveled to Japan as part of the US Aeroship Cavalry and found that he was more proficient with the katana than he was with the issue saber. Thereafter, the sword was often more effective in ending disputes than his pistols.

Most of the clothing is care of Gentleman’s Emporium. The leatherwork is my own craft, as is my facial hair styling. The katana is from Japan, adapted to fit a US Cavalry scabbard. The Model 1973 revolvers are from Italy. The Dr. Grordbort’s ray gun in the shoulder rig is from New Zealand.
