Villainy and Blackguards incorporated #31: The High Sheriff

Villains and Blackguards Incorporated (VABI) is an organization found on Earth 32aa which has dedicated itself to protecting the interest of those of differently enabled morality and enhanced humanity. They take care of legal expenses and investments. It has become a very successful organization and is considering spreading to other Earths. In case they do here are some of it's members.

As you can guess it is hard to keep VABI's own personal in line. The Teleman are kept in line by their operators, but most of VABI's talents were free agents before they joined VABI. Also, it should be pointed out that they often have a fairly free flowing set of morals. So, while VABI prizes employee morale, it finds it has to also have agents like the High Sheriff to keep things profitable and relatively safe.

The High Sheriff was a sheriff of the old west. Unfortunately some found his take oh justice a bit too strict. He found himself buried alive with rattlesnakes. Generally this would have been the end of his story but instead it was just a hundred year nap.

Upon awaking he wanted vengeance. So he went after all the descendants of those who buried him. Despite the best efforts of the Authorities, he succeeded in his quest. He then found himself in a quandry. He didn't feel like dying again, nor did he feel like serving the law. On the other hand, he didn't feel like going rogue. VABI was surprised one day to find him at our Texas office asking for a job. After a brief tenure where he was watched to see he wasn't a shill for the Authorities he became a full fledge member of VABI.

The High Sheriff is bright and insightful. He knows people and he knows when he's being lied to. Besides already being dead, his touch is full of the same type venom of a rattlesnake. He also carries two 60 caliber revolers specially made for him. Cross him and you better pray for God for mercy because you'll get none from him.
