Forgivin' sins is God's job. Sendin' you to ask him for it is mine.

Full Name: Connell McCracken
Also known as: Sheriff, Lawman

    Occupation: Sheriff of Devil's Well

    History: Connell McCracken has been the sheriff of Devil's Well for almost twenty-five years. His quiet, God-fearing and stern demeanor leads many to dismiss him as unusually dour. As a teenager, he fought in the last war, defending against the marauding soldiers of Big Spire alongside his father, and later after the bombs fell, he volunteered to help evacuate the trapped citizens.

    He elected to stay behind to help rebuild his home when the rest of his family chose to move on following the combat. Over the next several decades, he established himself as a fighting man and a stalwart defender of the weak, proving himself time and again against increasingly unlikely odds through low cunning, tireless perseverance, and unerring aim with pistol and shotgun. He married and raised sons and watched them do the same, and slowly, under his watchful eye, Devil's Well rebuilt itself as it had done so often before.

    However, time has been as cruel to Connell as it is to all heroes, and he finds himself increasingly unable to carry out his duties with the skill and fortitude of his youth. Despite his distinguished service record, he has already heard the calls to have him replaced, and hopes to secure his own replacement or replacements before death or politics wrest Devil's Well from his still-unpalsied hands.


    Alignment: Lawful Good
    Motivations: Justice, protection of the weak, peace
    Disposition: Stoic and reserved, unsmiling and stern, principled.
    Outlook: Cautiously optimistic, with the beginnings of the fear of leaving his work unfinished.

    Religion/Philosophy: New Testament Christian, with a lot of Jesus's words highlighted.

    Sexuality: Straight.
    Relationship Status: Widower, and uninterested in finding new love.

    Positive Personality Traits: Stalwart, trustworthy, honest, canny, capable.
    Negative Personality Traits: Swift to judge, slow to trust, stubborn, unable to play politics.
    Other Quirks: Bad at names. Calls people "outsider", "neighbor", "youngster", and so forth.

    Dislikes: Dishonesty, disloyalty, taking advantage of others, zombies.
