History: When his parents were killed by an Apache war band while travelling to Fargo City, the child who would become known as the Fargo Kid was raised by a local couple. As he grew he gained a reputation as a gunslinger, enjoying a number of adventures. As his reputation grew he came to dislike the life of a shootist, and so bought a ranch, married, and tried to settle down. The murder of his foster father brought him out of retirement one last time, as the Fargo Kid sought to avenge the man who raised him.
