Description: Both handsome and refined he has a natural presence and air not usually found in the Weird West. He is in his 30’s but due his wealthy lifestyle he appears far younger than most folks out on the frontier. He has well groomed black hair with neatly trimmed sideburns and short beard. His eyes a cool blue that make most saloon gals swoon. He dresses in the finest textiles from Britain almost always immaculately kept and proper down to the white gloves and sliver handled walking cane.
Because he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, the world missed out on one hell of snakeoil salesman. Like most broght up in an aristocratic society, he has a jolly fine manner that, as long as your not completely crazy, would think he is your best friend.
Mr. Dillenger’s had the best upbringing money can buy. His family owns a little bit of everything, but made its fortune in the shipping business. Because of the that wealth, Mr. Dillenger thinks of a little shopping spree as spending lest than two C-notes. Most folk think that for Rutherford money does in fact grow on trees.
Socially, he soaks up the spotlight like a sponge with his natural charm. He is especially skillful with the ladies with his Old World charm, and gentlemanly demeanor. Being a philanthropist at heart, he doesn’t feel contempt for those who are several steps below his status (which is almost everyone out West). After all, he knows that not everyone can be as lucky as he was. Now combine that with a chivalrous confidence and a somewhat naive view of the world and you got someone that thinks they can change it for the better—and sets off to prove it.
