History

When Rick Wilson was a child, he dreamed of one day becoming a Texas Ranger like his father Captain Sam Wilson. Captain Wilson taught his son how to shoot, and the boy took to the skill with great eagerness. His father however, discouraged him from trying to follow in his footsteps, citing that a badge is little more than a tin target on your chest. As Rick grew older though, he accompanied his father on a raid against a band of renegades. Captain Wilson was injured, but Rick promptly rode to his rescue, driving the renegades away. They succeeded in saving the life of a young girl named Paloma - a girl who sadly, was now an orphan. After a failed attempt to find a foster home for her, Captain Wilson adopted her and raised her alongside his son. When Rick was eighteen, he told his father that he wanted to join the Texas Rangers. Sam Wilson did not give Rick his blessing, and after a heated argument, the youth rode off away from their homestead. He spent the next year eking out his own life until one day he fell in with a group of outlaws known as the Fenton gang. Rick assisted the Fentons in robbing a stagecoach, and this incident drew the attention of his father. Determined to maintain law and order, Captain Wilson sought to bring his son to justice. Their next encounter was anything but hospitable, and Sam Wilson forced his son out onto the street for a shootout. By this point, Rick was an even deadlier shot with a revolver than his father, and quickly outdrew him. He shot Captain Wilson in the shoulder, forcing him to drop his weapon. As Rick escaped custody, his father disowned him, regarding him with the same contempt that he reserved for every outlaw.
