Description: Rance is 300 pounds of muscle and man. His big, melon-like head can generally be relied upon to be half-shaven around the face and close cropped up on the scalp. He supposedly has a tendency to drool, especially at the sight of ghost rock.
Rabid Rance was the most notorious bandit of the inland mining towns, and now he’s expanding his operation into channel piracy. Nobody knows where his base camp is. Hitchcock is infamous for holding up miners just when they’ve struck it rich. The rumor is that he has second sight, Rance won’t kill a man unless he resists, but he derives plenty of pleasure from torturing those who do.
