"Friend, don't call up that which ye can't put down."


William Wallace Lovely was born in rural Pennsylvania. His mother was a conjure woman, steeped in folk magic and hexes derived from Pennsylvania Dutch lore (German immigrants). He first shot a man at the age of 14, a drunk who was threatening his brother. He then headed west, his parents gifting him with a beat-up copy of the Long Lost Friend, a book of folk magic, and his father's prized carbine.


His first Ranch war taught him just how deadly he could be — and how little taste he had for such things. He tried to avoid the angry men and the eager guns, and found himself in his mother's world of shamans and ghosts. Finally, he faced down a would-be sorcerer, intent on retrieving a deceased wife from the land of the dead. Bill did what he needed to do — and stopped him.

At a glance, Bill looks like a lot of old ranchhands from the rural lands of North America. With a quick smile and even temperament, he has a certain country charm.


The Long Lost Friend Rare Artifact 3 improvements set on the fly for duration of scene/adventure
Written by a Pennsylvania Dutch healer in the 1820s, this book is a rambling collection of rural home remedies and folk invocations. Pow-wow is a unique creole of Christian theology and a shamanistic belief system. It is still practiced in some rural areas of Pennsylvania. It is believed to have been brought over to America by German immigrants who practiced folk-magic. (The book)

"Whoever carries this book with him, is safe from all his enemies, visible or invisible; and whoever has this book with him cannot die without the holy corpse of Jesus Christ, nor drowned in any water, nor burn up in any fire, nor can any unjust sentence be passed upon him. So help me."

Bill can invoke the spells and power of the book in various ways, allowing for weird magical 'gadget'-style uses. However, doing this draws… attention. It is the physics of the metaphysical — one cannot draw on the sacred arts without drawing, also, the chaos of the unnatural. Spirits, demons, ghosts, are drawn to someone who uses this book, and it can be used as an Aspect against him to aid in all sorts of supernatural effects.
Charms and hexes Rare Artifact 3 improvements set on the fly for duration of scene/adventure
Bill has a bag of 'tricks,' various charms and hexes he's worked on over the years, as a result of his skill as a hexemeister (or Artificer, in the SotC system).

Generally, Bill can use the charms and hexes all as one powerful item, or as several smaller items. Each artifact he uses, however, draws a unique dark element to it. The eye-bone of a murdered man, for example, might be handy for determining guilt or innocence, but the dark power of the item may stir men to violence.
Colt single-action revolver Gun (revolver pistol) Standard single-action revolver, 6 rounds
Springfield M1903 carbine Gun (carbine rifle) Standard carbine, 5-round magazine fed with stripper clips
