I love creating characters for a book. I just don't have the writing talents to see a book through to the end! I usually end up creating the characters, a brief outline and dropping it to move on. I thought it would be fun to create a group of characters for a story instead of a family. Hope you enjoy!

Setting is a small town in the Western frontier of the USA. The year is 1881. You can decide ages, physical characteristics, etc. Or, you can just select names, be sure to include last names. You can also give any of them children and/or spouses.

Name of your town: Grasshopper Gulch, NV

Mayor: Richard Henry Osbourne [47]
His Wife: Helen Amanda Osbourne [44]
Their children:
William Henry Osbourne "Will" [23]
Margaret Amelia Osbourne Harris "Maggie" [21]
Caroline Augusta Osbourne "Carrie" [18]
Benjamin Michael Osbourne "Ben" [15]
Mildred Lucretia Osbourne "Millie" [12]
Matthew David Osbourne "Matt" [12]

Richard Osbourne became mayor of Grasshopper Gulch 15 years ago, and has been reelected every election ever since. He tries his best to keep the people of the town happy and safe. His current concern is the increased activity of the Wilson Gang, a band of outlaws. He and his wife Helen have six children.

Sheriff: Lucien Davis Monroe [37]
His Wife: Mildred Josephine Monroe "Millie" [36]
Their children:
Malcolm Joesph Monroe [17]
Lillian Julia Monroe "Lilly" [15]

Lucien has served as a lawman in Grasshopper Gulch for more almost twenty years. He was a deputy when Mary Clay was killed in the fire that destroyed both her house and the town saloon. Though that happened ten years ago, the fact that the culprit was never caught still bothers Lucien at times. He has a suspsicion of who commited the crime, but he's currently busy dealing with the Wilson Gang...and keeping the boys away from his pretty teenage daughter.

Deputy: Isaac Stephen Harris [23]
His Wife: Margaret Amelia Osbourne Harris "Maggie" [21]
Their son: Richard Stephen Harris "Richie" [11 mo.]

Isaac Harris is the sheriff's deputy in Grasshopper Gulch, and he takes his job very seriously. He hates the Wilson Gang and their actions, and he wants to be the one to bring their criminal lifestyles to an end. But he is also very upset by the fact that his former best friend Wesley Clay is second-in-command in the gang, and that he will hang with the rest of them.

Outlaw 1: Maverick Wilson (aka Charlie Luke Anderson) [24]

Maverick was born Charlie Anderson in Tennessee to a couple of dirt-poor farmers. When he was 17, he decided to go west to seek his fortune. En route to California, he was captured by a gang of outlaws. They would have killed him for his horse and the few possesions he had, but he impressed them with his sharp shooting and smooth talking. They invited him to join their gang, and he accepted, changing his name to Maverick Wilson. When the leader of the gang was killed the following year, Maverick became their leader, and has been for the past six years.

Outlaw 2: Wesley Stuart Clay "Wes" [23]

Maverick's best friend and right-hand man, Wes is a half-Indian young man born and raised in Grasshopper Gulch. Because of his mother was an American Indian, people mistrusted the Clay family when Wes was a child, and they lived on the outskirts of society. One of Wes' few friends was another local boy, Isaac Harris. When Wes was 13, his mother was killed in a fire that someone started in the Clay family home, and the law did little to find the culprit. Wes has no love for the authorities, and he sees being outlaw as a way to get back at those who scorned his family, and let his mother's killer go free.

Outlaw 3: Virginia Alice Clay "Ginny" [21]

Wes' younger sister Ginny has been a member of the Wilson Gang since she was sixteen. While many of the men disagree with having a female in the group, none of them can deny that she is a definite asset. The few men that have dared to make fun of her have ended up on the ground in pain. Ginny is an excellent shot and can ride a horse as good as any of the men. She has also flirted her way out of many a tense situation, and the police often refuse to arrest her because she's a woman (and a pretty one at that). She has it bad for Maverick, and wishes he'd see her as more than one of the boys.

Pastor: Reverend Jacob Matthew Taylor [38]
His wife: Sarah Jane Taylor [36]
Their children:
Rebecca Hope Taylor [16]
Rachel Grace Taylor [15]
Daniel Abram Taylor [13]

Rev. Taylor and his family have lived in Grasshopper Gulch for many years, and are well-respected members of the community.

Doctor: Dr. Robert John Halliwell [25]
His Wife: Euphemia Violet Halliwell "Mia" [21]

Robert Halliwell's parents have always said that he was the brightest of their nine children, and when he was a teenager they sent him to one of the finest medical schools in New York City. While he was attending medical school he met Euphemia Hampton, the daughter of a wealthy businessman. Robert asked to marry her, and while her parents did not approve at first because Robert had no money and no class, Mia was able to convince them that he had potential and could support her well. When he graduated from medical school, Robert spent a couple of years as a doctor to the rich and famous of NYC. But he soon grew tired of the wealthy. When an oppurtunity to move to practice medicine in a frontier town in Nevada came, Robert took it. Mia dutifully follwed him, as is expected of a wife, but she dosen't enjoy living in Grasshopper Gulch, and wishes she were still back east living the life of luxury.


Saloon Owner: Everett James Haywood [38]

Everett Haywood opened the Grasshopper Gulch Saloon ten years ago, after the previous drinking establishment burned down in the same fire that killed Mary Clay. The saloon has been rather sucessful, and is known especially for its beautiful dance hall girls. Though he is a shrewd businessman, Everett is also a truly caring induvidual that respects the law, and he refuses to let his saloon turn into a brothel. He has been in a romantic relationship with Daisy for a long time, but the two aren't married.


Dance Hall Girl 1: Dorothy Anne Swisher "Daisy" [27]

Daisy has worked in the Grasshopper Gulch Saloon since it opened ten years ago. Though not as young as she used to be, she is still considered one of the prettiest women in town (though none of the "decent" people would admit it), and she is always the headliner in the shows. She is kind of like a big sister to Kitty Anderson, and the two are very close. She and Everett have been in a romantic relationship for eight years, but have not gotten married because it would be bad for business. She recently found out that she is expecting Everett's child.

Dance Hall Girl 2: Kitty Mae Anderson [19]

Kitty was born to a poor family in Tennessee. When she 12, here then-seventeen-year old brother Charlie left the family to seek his fortune out west. When both of her parents died three years later, she decided to go west to look for him. She eventually ended up in Grasshopper Gulch with no money and no prospects and took a job as a dance hall girl to support herself. She still dreams of finding her brother Charlie, who unbeknownst to her is actually the notorious outlaw Maverick Wilson.


Town Drunk: Marvin Curtis Wade [31]

Marvin Wade is a man aged far beyond his thirty-one years. As a younger man, he traveled all around the frontier, gambling and enjoying the company of prostitutes and outlaws. His wild lifestyle finally caught up with him when he reached Grasshopper Gulch a few years ago with no money and no friends. He occasionally does odd jobs around town to support his drinking habit, but he is generally seen hanging around the saloon. He is also often in jail, sleeping off his latest bender. Marvin is harmless for the most part, and the residents of the town treat him with a kind of absent-minded tolerance.

Banker: Frances Arthur Columbus "Frank" [45]

Frank the Banker is a well-known member of the community, and is generally well-liked. He is one of the more honest men in town, and the people know that their money is safe with him. His wife Isabelle died in childbirth several years ago, and he never remarried. He is a jolly man, and loves children, despite the fact he never had any.

Mercantile Owner: Andrew Byron Merchant [32]
His Wife: Adelina Charlotte Merchant [30]
Their children:
Elizabeth Sadie Merchant "Eliza" [9]
Samuel Elijah Merchant [6]
Emma Harriet Merchant [3]

From the day he was born, Andrew Merchant seemed to live up to his last name. He got a job in his uncle's store when he was twelve, and took over the business when he was eighteen. Merchant's General Store is one of the most successful businesses in town, and the Merchant family lives very comfortably.

Farmer/Rancher 1: Elijah Clayton Brown "Eli" [51]
His Wife: Laura Elizabeth Brown [49]
Their children:
Adelina Charlotte Merchant [30]
Thomas Reuben Brown [18]

Eli and Laura Brown came west with their daughter Addie in 1862 as part of the MacGregor wagon train. They settled in Grasshopper Gulch and became successful ranchers. The year after they arrived, much to their surprise and delight, a son was born to the couple. Tommy is growing up to be a fine young man, and his parents are confident he will run the ranch well when they become too old. He is in love with Kitty Anderson, but doesn’t want his parents to know. Addie is married to Andrew Merchant, the owner of the general store in town, and they have three children.

Farmer/Rancher 2: Vernon Alfred Wyatt

Vernon is a cruel man with a fiery temper who has never been married. He was infatuated with Mary Clay from the first time he saw her. He wanted her, never mind the fact that she was a married woman with two children. Over the years, his admiration for her turned to hatred as she spurned his advances. It was Vernon who set the fire to the Clay home in which Mary perished. He believes that he has gotten away with the crime, but Sheriff Monroe suspects something.


Native American Chief: Painted Moccasin

Chief Painted Moccasin's band of Paiutes live several miles outside of town. While there has been tension between the natives and the ranchers, relations are generally peaceful.
Name of his tribe: Paiute

Peace time or wartime between settlers and natives? There is currently peace.

The year is 1881. Two years before, Martians had landed just outside of little county of Goldrush, Oregon. They had planned this attack for ages, though they didn't expect to land in the middle of nowhere. Searching for any sign of life, they finally came across the little country town. They caused quite a commotion within the town, but they finally decided to leave. They then blasted off in their spaceship, and from outer space, fired their Death Ray right at the little county in spite. What they hadn't expected, though, was it to bounce off the earth's atmosphere and back into them! The town was saved, and the Martians defeated (by themselves). Unfortunately, the radiation from the death ray managed to seep through the atmosphere and back into the town of Goldrush. Over the next year, it managed to spread into the surrounding counties, and after two years the whole state of Oregon was a wasteland! The settlers of Oregon mutated into what are known as ghouls. Even though they're in a terribly decomposing state, they are still alive and "well". They managed to invent a water purifying system that purifies the water from any rads. Nothing will grow in the wasteland, so they have to get their food from neighboring states. In return, they trade them gold. The town of Goldrush, though the hardest hit by the death ray, is now bustling with business. The Native Americans get along with the settlers, because they feel like they are all one tribe--the tribe of ghouls. Here are the characters:

Name of your town: Goldrush, Oregon

Mayor: Lensford Hughes *Mayor Lenny*

Sheriff: Jeb Higgins

Deputy: Jed Higgins (brother of Jeb Higgins)

Outlaw(s): *The Rogue Ghouls* (a gang of ghouls who had the the mutation spread to their brain): Ted Stone, Hunter Lee, Will Jibbs, and Roy Camden

Pastor: Christian Lee (the father of Hunter Lee--a part of the Rogue Ghouls)

Doctor: William Solvo

Saloon Owner: Gabe Templeton

Dance Hall Girl 1: Louisa Higgins (sister of Jeb and Jed Higgins)

Dance Hall Girl 2: Jenny Higgins (sister of Louisa Higgins)

Town Drunk: Borachio Oak

Banker: Smith Smithson *The Goldsmith*

Mercantile Owner: Buster Stone (the father of Ted Stone--a part of the Rogue Ghouls)

Farmer/Rancher 1: Silas Turner

Farmer/Rancher 2: Seth Turner (brother of Silas Turner)
