Rogue’s Gallery: Buffalo Bill
This month we’re continuing on with our look at the Magnificent Seven. We know Buffalo Bill is an exploring type who even travels with a medicine show, but how much do we really know about this Bison’s Bison? Read on for a bit more insight into his past!
Subject: "Buffalo" Bill
Home: Cool Ranch (all over)
Weapon of Choice: Shotgun Sparkshooter
Occupation: Showman, Lawman (retired)
The particulars of Bill's childhood and early life are not known – he never talks about the subject himself. What is clear is that Bill was raised outside of the various Bison Tribes of Cool Ranch, and indeed grew up Back East, where he served as an Army Scout in the War Between the Flocks. Bill's quick reflexes and deadly aim won him great fame, and he was even awarded the Coopgressional Medal of Honor.
After the war Bill returned to Cool Ranch, and spent years roaming the skyways, exploring every last nook and cranny of Cool Ranch. His exploits earned him great fame, and Bill found himself roaming from town to town, telling grand tales of his exploits and the features of Cool Ranch. At one of these stops Bill was approached by legendary lawman Wyatt Chirp, who needed help tracking down nefarious outlaw Sam Bass. The two hit it off, and Bill became a founding member of the Magnificent Seven.
After Wyatt's untimely end, Bill was overwhelmed with grief. He left the law behind and threw himself full time into his old occupation: traveling and telling tall tales. In time, he established a travelling show, full of wonders, attractions, and oddities from Cool Ranch and further places. By the time a famous young pirate came to Cool Ranch, Wild Bill's show was an institution. The Buffalo never imagined he'd leave his show behind, but a fateful wager would soon change all that...

This month’s screenshot of the month comes from Grace, who turns out to be last month’s winner of Puppet Pirates (and proudly sporting the exclusive Opera Glasses item that can only be won from Puppet Pirates).
Chief Antiphates has no idea who’s just roller-bladed into his Cave! We imagine this didn’t end well for the Laestrygoneans and Manticores. The real question is, did Grace just tell jokes or really bring the house down on those bad guys?
