[FONT=Trebuchet MS]Howdy and welcome to the wild west. This is an enlarged tale of a town that must?ve been around for ages and ages. Now folks don?t often just come to Dustero Town for business. They might find that they like it so much they up and leave their old town to move to Dustero. It?s jus? that good. Iffin? their family don?t wanna come, they leave their family behind too! It?s jus? that good.

Makes sense too. Dustero is a very popular and prosperous settlement. People come to it because it?s prosperous and it?s prosperous because people come to it. Makes you think how it got popular in the first place. It was probably the good land for growin? food and raisin? cattle and horses. Soon Dustero expanded into something greater. It grew to have shops and saloons and brothel houses and ranches of sorts. Their banks never went bankrupt, which was common to happen back in them days.

But you can?t have a cow and milk it too? not sure why. But anyways, since these banks were filled with the riches and money of its citizens, it became a notorious hotspot for bandits and outlaws. Bank robbers and scoundrels of all sorts came from all over to get their greedy hands on a piece of Dustero?s loot. The Sheriff wasn?t able to keep a steady hold on the crime and soon Dustero looked like it was going to reach its end.

The once prosperous and beautiful town of Dustero became nothing but a pit of despair and? dare I say? bankruptcy. Yesiree, hard times were hittin? Dustero. That is, until more able-bodied citizens arrived to help protect Dustero against the outlaws and ruffians. They supplied the banks with loot and their muscle for protection. There grew to be guards that worked for the Sheriff so he was no longer alone on the job. These new residents were the Saviors of Dustero and were forever thanked in gold plagues in Town Hall.

But just because Dustero has new reinforcements doesn?t mean the vice stopped. Crime doesn?t quit so easily, though it should. Bandits still attack, bank robbers still embezzle, and scoundrels still? uhh? do what scoundrels do. Dustero has a long way to go before it?s back to how it used to be. People no longer flock to it, but it?s slowly gaining back its business? and soon, its prosperity.

[center]------[/center]

Alright, folks, you now know what?s going on. This RPG revolves around the western town of Dustero. This RPG?s setting is back in 1910 in Western USA. Some of you may recall my past RPGs like this one (Black Haven, Black Haven 2, Ermwell Inn), but for those of you who don?t, here?s the low-down. You play as a citizen of Dustero. You don?t have to fight against bandits; you can leave that to the Sheriff and his forces if you?d like. But you will take up an occupation and live a life like everyone else.

I will say when the new day starts and when the day ends, so time will be a factor in this. There is no preference to how long days last, but I?ll give fair warning to what time of day it is and if we?re nearing the end of the day.

When creating your character, you must keep the idea of the Wild West in mind. I?m not too picky about sign ups this time and have no preference to how many people join (the more, the merrier), but if your sign up does not qualify, you will not be accepted. But you will have as many tries to get in as you?d like, for the sign ups are open as long as the RPG is running. Before I start the RPG, I will await enough sign ups and then start it. After the RPG is started, you may still sign up and gain entry, but [b]you MUST wait for me to allow you in the RPG before you can start![/b]

Make sure you spell check and read through your sign up for any errors. That might count against you if it?s really poor writing.

Also, your character may be married if you?d like, but it?s not a requirement. If you make a deal with a fellow roleplayer in this game that your two characters are married, then so be it. Or your character can be married to an NPC, in which case, you will be playing more than character.

NPCs are the only time you can play more than one character, but you may not base your posts on the NPC. You can just work with NPCs like you do in any other RPG.

[SIZE=1][B]Name:[/B] Eloise Hunter
[B]Nickname:[/B] Elly or Lou
[B]Gender:[/B] Female
[B]Age:[/B] 18

[B]Appearance:[/B] Elly stands roughly 5'7" tall, and has long brown hair braided down to her lower back. Her eyes are a startling green, and her skin is fairly pale for being outside so much. She usually wears her oldest brother's cowboy boots almost all the time, and wears long skirts with shaggy blouses, or her trademark overalls. For her job at the bar, though, she wears a tattered, old brown dress with black high heeled boots.

[B]Personality:[/B] Elly is a girl who was raised with three brothers, so her idea of a good time is messing around with the rest of the boys rather than working. She enjoys running around outside or sitting under the shade of a tree and doodling in her notebook. Though she grew up rough housing with boys, she's generally sweet, quiet, and rather timid.

[B]Occupation:[/B] Elly is one of the waitresses at the local bar that her uncle owns.

[B]Hobbies:[/B] Elly likes to hang out with the guys, but she also likes to write or draw in her notebook. She's also been thinking about getting a horse to ride.

[B]Weapons/Possessions:[/B] Elly has no idea how to use a gun, as her mother refused to allow her to practice with her brothers. However, she does carry a knife in her boot for protection. Other than that, she normally has her notebook (which most people would call a diary, but she doesn't use it as a diary) under her arm with a pencil in her pocket.

[B]Other Information:[/B] Might add something here later.

--
[color=#006aaf]OOC: If anyone wants to play any of Elly's three brothers, you can go ahead. There's nothing special planned for any of them.[/color][/SIZE]

[u]My Sign Up Sheet[/u]
[b]Name:[/b] Bo Fidley
[b]Nickname:[/b] Fids
[b]Gender:[/b] Male
[b]Age:[/b] Twenty-Four
[b]Appearance:[/b] Bo's a ladies' man and always has been since hormones kicked in. He can't help but to love the dames. And lucky for him, he's quite the looker. Bo is dashing with long blonde hair that reaches low, but not quite to his shoulders. He's a height of 6'2" and has a decent build (just to keep the ladies comin' back for more!). His normal outfit on the streets is a white shirt with dusty brown pants and black boots complete with a long black trench coat and black cowboy hat, but if he's on duty (which would be checking out the merchandise at the local brothel house) he'll dress in a nice suit (he won't say where he gets them from), which are usually white with a black bowtie and black shoes. He's a very classy man if he needs to be, but usually he can be a downright idiotic pig.
[b]Personality:[/b] Did we say Bo was a ladies' man? He hits on any girl that's of legal age and, man, does he lay it down. He's charming, he knows what to say usually (at least, to get the dumb ones mostly), and with his sense of humor, how can he go wrong? Easily. He has a big mouth that gets him in trouble and he sometimes takes things a little too far. He's very outgoing and thinks he can get out of any sticky situation, but chances are, he'll just make matters worse. He's better off just being tied to a bed somewhere and left alone until he learns the meaning of silence and shuts the hell up. He does have a few friends around town, but just the ones he knows the business of very well... like the brothel house and bar.
[b]Occupation:[/b] Is local playboy a profession? Basically, all he does is go to brothel houses for ladies and drinks at bars and has a good time at parties. He does work for a rancher named Vixon who he calls Ol' Vix, but he's so dag-gum lazy he doesn't do a lick of work around the horses. Vixon will be lucky he gets Bo to do anything. It's a wonder why he lets Bo live with him. Oh yeah, because Bo's too wild that he'd die without Vixon. Vixon may be in his 50's, but he knows how to take care of the two of them. Bo gambles too, which is never a good thing.
[b]Hobbies:[/b] Lovin' the women and drinkin' and partyin'. He does love to play cards... and isn't bad at it neither.
[b]Weapons/Possessions:[/b] He has a pistol, but doesn't use it. He's not that kind of guy. He only fires one gun and that's in the bedroom. He always carries a deck of cards, though. He's a vivid gambler.
[b]Other Information:[/b] Despite how good he is in bed, he's god-awful out on the battlefield. If he's threatened at gunpoint, chances are he might panic. If he thinks of a "brilliant plan to get him out of it," chances are things are just gonna get even more ugly. He's not great with a pistol despite the fact that he has one. He won't use it, though and there's really no point in him having it. If he was in a situation to save someone, he'd cause more deaths than the bandits would.

He lives with his old friend Roy Vixon, who just goes by the name of Vixon or Ol' Vix. Roy is in his 50's, but has known Bo since he was thieving back in his young teen years in another town. He took Bo in and they've been friends since. Vixon is the kind of guy you think wise; a real old fashion cowboy who finally decided to settle down and become a rancher. Which is true. Him and Bo used to go on great adventures until Vixon broke a hip and decided it was time to put the old horse down, so to speak.

Bo wasn't too thrilled with settling in Dustero, but he had no choice because Vixon would make sure he stayed out of trouble and kept him near. But Bo had a wild heart and the adventure in him was still not through. Bo was a grown man now of twenty-four and Vixon can't do anything about it. He wasn't Bo's father anyways. If Bo wanted to go out and make a life for himself, so be it, but Roy never said he'd like it. But Bo stayed with Vixon, probably as payment for taking him in. He can't just leave the old feller to die by himself. Vixon was always coughing like he was sick.

Instead, Bo lived in the house in Dustero with Roy. Though he didn't do much work around the ranch (which was located on the outside border of town), he did bring in some money by gambling or other sorts. But we never said his gambling didn't lose them money either. Those were the harder times and with Bo constantly off with women, it didn't make things simpler for the two. But Vixon has learned to live with Bo's wild heart and Bo has learned to live under Roy's more disciplined lifestyle. The two are the right pair.

[b]EDIT:[/b] Yeah, sure, someone can play as Roy Vixon if they want... that is, if they want to be a fifty-something year old rancher who's a retired cowboy and has to discipline Bo every now and again. He sounds cool ;)

[font=book antiqua][b]'The Tales of Mr. Liquor'[/b]

[b]Name:[/b] For a long time upon his arrival, no one had an idea of what his name was, so he gained alot of nicknames which stood coherent with his reputation. They varied from 'Mr. X', 'The Black Wanderer', 'The Dusk at Noon', but his most popular one was [b]'Mr. Liquor'[/b].

[b]Nickname:[/b] Instead of what the townspeople called him, he liked to be known as 'Ricochet'.

[b]Gender:[/b] Male

[b]Age:[/b] Late twenties or early thirties. He and others could not care to take notice. It was too many moons for him though.

[b]Appearance:[/b] [center][img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v732/ZIdargh/MrLicqorDistance.jpg[/img]

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v732/ZIdargh/Him.jpg[/img][/center]

Often seen wearing a cape or long coat, many people have not noticed Ricochet's distinguished face. Instead, they shun him off as a recluse or attention seeker for he often sits in the corner by himself in a bar, appearing as if he's in another world. Yet, there's something that runs much deeper which sadly, many people cannot seem to understand at this point in time.

He often wears black because night is usually the time he gets paid to work, however, if his clothes get ruined by sand, dirt, water or other means, he doesn't hesitate but to change into something else. Either way, this man just doesn't want attention, and despite his dark appearance he doesn't get very much, simply because alot of people class him as a bandit.

Underneath his faux exterior though, is a very handsome man with dark brown hair and deep pools of ink for irises. His cheekbokes and chin defined, and the stubble of a shaver who does so often, but not every day, he is very presentable, and employees trust him if they ever lay eyes on his face.

Ricochet will also almost always be seen wearing a dark hat. Two holes have pierced the top, yet there is no evidence of any work being carried out to fix them.

[b]Personality:[/b] Quiet, secretive and introvert. If someone were drunk enough to insult him, he would not answer back, just tilt his cowboy hat downwards and act as if nothing ever happened.

However, when the call of duty comes about, depending on what the work requires, he refuses to procrastinate and carries the job out very cautiously and thoroughly. Although he hates escort jobs for it involves interaction with a very nervous person or beautiful woman, and he doesn't know how to deal with these situations.

Occasionally, on the eve of a full moon, he is seen on horseback, holding a rope which connects to another horse on the top of a canyon, just gazing up at the stars, mesmerised. Almost trance-like.

He is a well-spoken man, but a man of few words. And thus, it is clear he received a good education or is naturally a good thinker for his replies can be very deep and philosophical, despite the lack of dialogue.

There is not yet a witness account of his abilities and persona in a brawl or on a job. In fact, most people only hear of random disappearances of those who had caused alot of trouble in towns previously.

[b]Occupation:[/b] He doesn't actually have a permanent job. He is more or less a freelance 'Jack-of-all-trades' or mercenary. For one minute he could be acting as a bodyguard for the mayor, and the next he will be preparing vegetables for the mayor's daughter.

However, he is more or less a natural gun-for-hire. With experience in defending a Mexican village from hundreds of bandits with only six other comrades, eliminating local threats. But times were changing, and targets were becoming more cunning.

In short, he is a simpler wanderer.

[b]Hobbies:[/b] A shot or two of whiskey every night and tobacco seems to be what he does the most. And sleeping.

[b]Weapons/Possessions:[/b] Currently, he has no weapons for they've all be confiscated by Dustero Town's guards and The Sheriff under the new registration laws that were passed three days before. This is because all newcomers have to undergo a registration process before they can even become a visitor within the town. Possibly to counter troublesome activity, which currently Ricochet does not know about.

However, he wears his holsters on a leather belt and keeps a rectangular object which noone has yet seen.

[b]Other Information:[/b] - The reason this information is vague is because no one in Dustero Town knows this man, instead they've just heard rumors about a mysterious man in dark clothes.

- The wanderer is in fact a ricochet master who is adept in pretty much any firearm, but he prefers his handy dual-revolvers for they allow much more flexibility when aiming. If a foe were to run around the corner of a building to take cover, the foe would seem to have been shot by the overhanging tavern sign to the left of him.

- He has only just arrived in Dustero Town.[/font]

But gradually over time some of there men left or died until it was just her and Jay Jay. Instead of getting worse, they became more famouse than ever.

-------------------------

A year later when "Jane" was 18, J.J. was cuaght by a group of bounty hunters and was thrown in jail and sentenced to death, but the city was a few days away and by the time she got there he had already escaped. She tried searching for him with no luck.

[size=1][color=royalblue]Hrm. This seems like fun. Let's give it a shot.

[b]Name:[/b] Virginia Thommes

[b]Nickname:[/b] Ginger or Ging - call her Ginny and die

[b]Gender:[/b] Female, but darn, she's the best gol'-dang genderbender out there

[b]Age:[/b] 17

[b]Appearance:[/b] Something along the lines of [url=http://img377.imageshack.us/img377/5750/cowboy2hd.gif]this kid,[/url] though not as cheesy, ya hear? Dusty brown-gold hair, stormy grey eyes, and a definite farmer's tan. Somewhere around the height of 5'6".

[b]Personality:[/b] Laid back and easy-going, adopting the male technique she learned from her two older brothers back home. Hardly anyone knowns her feminine side.
Very (I shall emphasize: [u][b][i]very[/i][/b][/u]) rarely will something happen that provokes her - but when it does, she becomes one of the most vicious, blood-thirsty fighters out there. Has been known to bite on these occassions and cause very bad bleeding.
But those folks are long gone by now.

[b]Occupation:[/b] Ging does nothing. Absolutely nothing. Maybe she'll go and work at a farm for a day or two, but she doesn't hold a job. The room she stays in at the local inn is bummed off through working in the kitchens or getting supplies.
Her main occupation is deceiving people. You could say her job is deception, if deception can be called a career. Afterall, she goes for a drink every now and then, and plays cards at the bar all the time. Nobody's stopped her yet - or has tried.

[b]Hobbies:[/b] When materials are avaliable, Ging draws and writes. Another pasttime of her's is cooking, coming up with new and really weird concoctions that are known to either send you straight to heaven or put you through El Diablo and the outhouse for five hours.

[b]Weapons/Possessions:[/b] The pistol she carries is mainly for show, seeing as how she hasn't really gotten mad. And besides, if she were to pull it out on somebody, she'd miss horribly, even if they were standing five feet away. But besides that, Ging carries around a short knife to randomly scrape away callused skin. It would be better not to ask.

[b]Other Information:[/b] Ginger came from the northeast - somewhere in the area of Ohio or Pennsylvania. She talks "normally" and is fairly educated, compared to the fact that she dropped out at age fourteen and hitched a bandwagon to the west. What brought about the gender-bending hobby is pretty much unknown, although it might having something to do with that fact that, at her old home, new girls tried to hit on her.
Oh, but she's proudly heterosexual. ^_~
Besides, messing up random pedestrians and villagers is fun.


[b]OOC:[/b] It's late, which is probably why this kinda sucks. - -;; Can't wait to see this movin'!
[b]Edit:[/b] Added and edited stuff to give her a little more depth. :3 Pudding. [/color][/size]

[SIZE=1]Edit: Done and dusted, if you'll excuse the pun

[b]Name:[/b] John Edward Griffin

[b]Nickname:[/b] Jack

[b]Gender:[/b] Male

[b]Age:[/b] 37

[b]Appearance:[/b] [url=http://adventkane.250free.com/Ford.jpg]Jack[/url]

Standing well over six foot tall and weighing in somewhere around the 215 mark most people who don?t know Jack take one look at him and step back. Those that do know him, well some of them that have earned his ire step back too, but most of them just give him a smile and he?s like a big teddy bear. Jack spends most of his time behind the bar, well at least a good portion of his time, as such he?s taken on the look of the saloon barman rather than the owner. An alcohol stained what-used-to-be white apron is wrapped around his midsection, covering over a pair of tailored dark navy trousers, some fine black leather shoes and the bottom part of a navy waistcoat. The shirt underneath is kept white purely because Jack buys white shirts buy the dozen so he can always have one when he needs it.

The sleeves of said shirts are usually rolled up the elbow to avoid staining the cuffs, and he has two of those elastic things around his upper arms to make sure the cuffs don?t roll down again. When the time comes from Jack to put on a suit, well fancy just doesn?t cover it. The man?s wealth is most apparent in what he wears, fully tailored suits in a few different colours, leather belts and pairs of shoes that look like they?ve been polished for hours on end, and most importantly his white shirts to go with it. When the time calls for it Jack has known to wear a large cream coloured cowboy hat, though again only when the time calls for it, because simply put Jack isn?t partial to cowboy hats.

[b]Personality:[/b] Unlike many of the misfits that inhabit Dustero you always know where you stand with Jack. If he calls you friend then he?ll do just about anything in his power for you, so long as it?s legal and if he calls you his enemy, well you?d not be too wise to go poking around his saloon or the consequences could be dire. He?s got a good heart and is willing to do a turn for someone if possible, but he?s also got a short fuse that tends to go off only when he?s overworked, stressed and has to deal with some out-of-town idiot. Jack's a cunning and eloquent bastard too, you don?t get to own Dustero?s most successful saloon if you don?t have the initiative to see business deals or opportunities wherever they present themselves.

[b]Occupation:[/b] Saloon Owner

[b]Hobbies:[/b] Stargazing, reading, playing cards and when the chance presents itself he likes to do a little cooking.

[b]Weapons/Possessions:[/b] Aside from a Smith & Wesson six-shooter tucked into his holster, Jack is partial to a double barrelled shotgun he keeps under the bar counter and uses only when things get a little out of hand. Usually this is just a shot upwards to calm people down, but there have been instances where the gun is pointing forward when he fires. Aside from weapons, Jack keeps a small brass pocket watch his father gave him before he left Ireland, well over twenty years ago. This watch is possibly Jack?s most treasured item and as such he keeps it securely fastened to his waistcoat at all times. Other than the watch Jack?s only other possession of note is a brass telescope he picked up someplace or another in the last decade, exactly where only Jack knows and he not saying. He keeps it inside his and Gracie?s room and only uses it when the nights are good.

[b]Other Information:[/b] Jack is married to Gracie Livingston, the lead showgirl of his establishment, and responsible for half of his clientele. Despite the age difference Jack is very much in love with Gracie and has been known to quite seriously injure individuals who try to hassle her, that is if Gracie doesn?t kick the stuffing out of them herself.

[size=1][color=#E3170D][B]Name-[/B] Sydney Cooper Reed
[B]Nickname-[/B] Syd or Cooper to her friends but to everyone else, she?s known as Cobra Reed.
[B]Gender-[/B] Female
[B]Age-[/B] 18

[B]Appearance-[/B] [URL=http://home.worldonline.dk/monster1/Omtale/Billeder/Belle%20Starr2.jpg]Cobra Reed[/URL]

Sydney may appear feminine and timid, but in reality, she?s a firecracker just waiting to explode. She stands at the height of five feet and four inches with chocolate brown hair that waves in the wind, hazel brown eyes that glints in the sunlight, and a fairly built body with a fair tan. Some people assume that since she?s small and appears timid that she?s harmless but they don?t realize who she is until it?s a bit too late. Yet the people that know Sydney have a love for her like she?s a sister and know that she?s one to watch out for because she?s a force to be reckoned with. Her delicate hands are long and elegant but have such strength in them, just like her feet, and mouth. Now, her full pink lips may appear beautiful but when they part, a rowdy and loud mouth takes over, causing people to have a variety of emotions.

On an everyday basis, Sydney wears a black cowboy hat with dark brown pants, black boots, and various colors of shirts. Over her shirts is a black jacket with a cobra on the right chest. She?s not one for wearing dresses, skirts, and womanly clothing because it bothers her a bit much. Even if she never wears womanly clothing, Sydney is always seen with an intricate outfit everyday and never once has she worn anything new.

[B]Personality-[/B] Sydney is naturally a kindhearted woman with an exuberant smile and radiating joy that literally brightens any room that she steps into. She has a great sense of humor and a beautiful laughter that makes any person cheer up on a cloudy day but most of all, she?s never too busy to help anyone in need, which is why she?s very amiable with everyone in Dustero Town but if anyone annoys her or even angers her, they gets the storm of the century with Sydney. She isn?t one for crude remarks that hurt people or even rude acts that can harm them. If anyone should try this in her present, she becomes quite intimidating and can scare away even the burliest of men.

In the saloon, Sydney?s a working woman who keeps the drunken cowboys in check and makes sure that they don?t cause too much trouble with the ladies and other people. She?s a dedicated and hard-working person and quite the entertainer when it comes to drinking. In other words she?s a wild child who knows how to keep them coming but when the time comes to end the party, she?s the first to let them all go, never the last. The strange thing about Sydney is that, her personality varies in all sorts of environments and situations. There is never just one way to explain who she is, you just have to know her to actually know who she is.

[B]Occupation-[/B] Rarely has Sydney ever stayed in one place, meaning she?s ran around the entire South but planted herself in the West, getting a job as a waitress at a saloon. She also is a freelancer looking for a job doing anything but working as a brothel girl or dancer.

[B]Hobbies-[/B] Working in the saloon is one of her favorite things to do, as well as showing the men that women can hold their liquor. She also loves to take a ride on Black Diamond, a black mixed breed feral horse with a white diamond on its nose, with Duke, a black and tan coon hound, walking beside the horse, and Taz, her gray ferret, sitting on her shoulders. Sydney seems to be at peace whenever she?s taking time out for her pets, she also seems to be at peace when she?s reading or playing the piano.

When times get rough, Sydney?s in the middle of it all, cracking her whip and shooting up a storm. She loves an occasional fight or argument because the adrenaline rushes all around her and she?s able to get it out of her system before she explodes.

[B]Weapons/Possessions-[/B] Carried around with her are two [URL= http://replicagunsswords.com/weapons_gallery/images/productpics/d_786_03.jpg]Peacemaker[/URL] pistols that was given to her by her grandfather before his dying day. She also keeps with her a whip, a knife with the word ?Cobra? embedded into the blade, and a shot gun for emergencies. Aside from her weapons, Sydney wears a silver heart locket, which was given to her by her mother before Sydney left for Dustero Town. She also has a silver ring to remind her of her days in her old town.

[B]Other Information-[/B] She works with Jack and Gracie in Jack's saloon and has never seen a dull day. But usually, Sydney's the one who starts the bar fights and has to be calmed down by the two. You could say, she's one wild child with a fiery spirit and rowdy heart. As for her name, Cobra Reed, the only ones who know that she?s female are the ones who come into Jack?s saloon but outside, Cobra Reed?s a mystery.[/size][/color]

[size=1][color=black][CENTER][B]Name:[/B] Sherlise Evans
[B]Nickname:[/B] Shirley, Shirls or otherwise known as Good Ol' Shirls (see below)
[B]Gender:[/B] Female
[B]Age:[/B] 27 [/CENTER]

[B]Appearance:[/B] You could usually seen Shirley walking down Dustero lookin' pretty professional in a vest with a skirt or her most favorite purple frock with her mini-briefcase. Her fiery red hair tied up in a bun and a few curls around her face, she's a petite lady, with fair skin and just a tad of freckles on her nose. She's not bad lookin', infact some claim her to be a diamond in a ruff, but she never played close attention to the importance of beauty. Rarely does she ever let her hair down or dress up, but when she does all the men in Dustero wouldn't recognize her and mistake her for someone else.

Shirley always did wear pearl earrings that her late husband gave her, since that and her watch are always by her side. She takes a liking to delicate things such material things such as jewels and money. "Just the Evans way of life" would she always say, and thats how it was.

[B]Personality:[/B] She always did love to read, and be taken seriously. Nobody knows why she don't smile much these days, but when you do loosen her up, she's a real sweet gal. Her strict and rich upbringing, is one of her qualities that sticks out most in Dustero. If you don't agree with her, well she'll argue with you 'fer hours until you change your mind. Never can agree on anything with this lady here.

She can't stand playboys or anyone that isn't a dedicated or hardworking person. Be best to just lay low if you don't have a job, that will really set her off. Shirley isn't so bad of a person, infact she got plenty of friends at the bank. She just has trouble communicatin'. As long as you don't get on her nerves or set off her temper, we'll she'd probably be the nicest lady you ever meet in Dustero. Especially if you need help for a good cause, and when it deals with money. Everyone in Dustero comes to her for financial advice. Just how things are around here.

[B]Occupation:[/B] Good ol' Shirls they call her, most the time to get out of paying taxes. Shirley has always been a good banker, which is why she was choosen to be tax collector. Shirley didn't know that people would avoid her for this reason, and didn't realize the task at hand at first. She always did like to be taken seriously for her job and boy, if you said anything to try and change that, you'd be askin' for some trouble. There be countless of times, she been knockin' people over the head for disrespecting her. She never did have the skills to control her temper.

Yup, Shirley always loved her work. She's pretty known around town which is why a lot of people suck up to her. Do the people love her? Well, not always. As long as she wasn't lookin' fer nobody then you could say most people thought she was mighty nice and even pretty out of her work clothes. However, she never could stand those playboy types.

[B]Hobbies:[/B] Despite Shirleys tough nature, she was always up for a game or two. I guess thats why gambling got a hold of her. Her favorite? Poker. Every saturday night you can see Shirley with a group of guys or so, playing a good ol' game of Poker. Usually they bet on not having to pay their taxes if she were feeling nice that day, but othertimes she would bet on material thangs most the time jewelry or money.

Shirley always wanted to dance, but her grand-daddy never allowed it. Instead, she likes to watch shows and plays and other theatrical performances. Maybe one day, Shirley too will be famous and be able to perform, for that is her ultimate dream.

[B]Weapons/Possessions:[/B] [i]A golden watch[/i] hangs from Shirley's right pocket in which was an important heirloom from her great grandfather Earl, she glances at it from time to time. It ain't a weapon but it's one of her favorite gifts. She also keeps a handy [i]Dagger[/i] on her pocket or in her briefcase which she's pretty handy with frankly and a [i]handgun[/i] on her belt in case of emergencies. Sometimes collecting taxes from folks can be dangerous depending on who they are.

[B]Other Information:[/B] Now Shirley came from a town in the east, some say that she was a school teacher and others said she just ran the bank there. As far as her reason for leaving her home town no one' knows. But then again, nobody really cared. One day Shirley arrived an' it was like she had always been in Dustero. Supposedly Shirley use to be a bride, yet her husband ain't with her so they must be divorced or so. She don't talk bout him except that he left and gave her pearl earrings. Nobody knows where they got married and divorced, who he was or why they are divorced, but it don't seem to matter really, seems she has left her past behind. But as they say "You can't escape the past, it'll always come back to you". [/size][/color]
