History: (The Hunter and the Hunted, Pow Annual 1972.) Chet Blair had been born a Sioux, but had studied law at college, graduated and was now about to start working as a lawyer in Chicago, feeling that his heritage was irrelevant. But then he witnessed an attempted drive by shooting that ended with the gunmen in the car dead at the hands of their intended victim. As a good citizen, Chet stepped forward to detain the surviving gunman, who struck him and ran off, leaving his gun behind. Just as Chet recovered and picked up the weapon, the police arrived and immediately assumed he was the killer. Chet escaped, and realising that unless he could clear himself he would spend the rest of his life on the run, he decided to use his Sioux skills to track the true killer down.
He eventually caught up with the killer while the man was breaking into a warehouse, only to discover that the killer was an undercover cop, and that the men he slain were mobsters. Cleared, Chet returned to his old life, but now he no longer considered his heritage so unimportant.
Comments: Chet is a moron. First, no one with an ounce of sense would pick up a gun that has just been used to kill two men. If he hadn't done that, a simple fingerprints test would have cleared his name. Even so, it should be possible to prove by the lack of powder burns on his hands that he didn't fire the weapon - and while a man on the street might not know this, a lawyer should. Then, on the run and trying to remain inconspicuous while tracking down the true killer, he dresses up as Tonto - real subtle dude, you'll blend in nicely.
