- Healing: Nori is good at patching people (especially himself) up and making due with the scarce supplies of the frontier. (Healing is 16)
- Quickdraw: Besides his storied dueling experience, Nori generally dislikes shooting blindly into a crowd. Aim with your eye before you aim with your hand. (Ranged when making his first attack against a given enemy in an instance of combat. Can be used again against a new enemy, but cannot be used more than once against the same enemy in the same combat.)
- The Deathless Drifter: Nori might not be the quickest draw or the luckiest shot, but damned if he isn't the most stubborn old coot when it comes to dying. (Endurance, Will, or defense rolls when he would take more than 10 damage at once, or when Current HP is below half of Max HP.)

- Old Bones: While he keeps his hands limber with gentle tinkering, Nori's age is beginning to catch up with him. (Strength when it applies to hard physical labor, lifting, pushing, etc.)
- No Such Thing as a Lucky Shot: Throughout his life, Nori has had brief moments of good fortune that helped him stay alive to the ripe old age he has reached today. But when it comes down to the wire, luck is rarely on his side. (Disadvantage on rolls that he spends more than three Luck points on.)

-Two-way radio
-Colt 1851 Navy Revolver
-Tarnished silver locket
-Flask, with his initials on it
-Stetson hat

Talent - Soulfire Bullet: Nori believes that anything worth doing is worth doing right, and never is that more apparent in his first rule of firearms: never point a gun at something you aren't willing to destroy. (When Nori rolls ranged, he can attempt to roll his Talent. If he succeeds, he makes one roll of healing at the same time. If the healing roll is greater than his ranged roll, he regenerates Major Wounds equal to half the medical roll rounded down. If the ranged roll is greater, he can add half his Will to his ranged roll, and the shot ignores damage protection from things such as a werewolf's non-silver protections or a vampire's need to be staked. If both rolls are tied, Nori picks which effect ensues.)
Backfire - Ghosts of the Past: Despite this, sometimes the regrets of his past catch up to him, and his resolve and aim wavers. (Nori still has to roll ranged, but must also roll Will. If the Will roll is higher, he takes Minor Wounds equal to the difference. If his ranged roll is higher, he loses Luck points equal to the difference, down to a minimum of 0).

History: In a different version of the western frontier, rumors spread of a legendary gunslinger. A lone dwarf who would appear and disappear from towns without a trace. An outlaw who would arc lightning from his gun and kill entire bands of bandits at once, who could take a bullet to the face and spit it out like tobacco. To be fair, most of those rumors were nothing more than tall tales and hearsay. But a small handful could be traced back, through the layers of legend and retelling, to a dwarven gunslinger named Nori.
Nori had originally served in the Civil War, heading out west after the ceasefire was called to try to find a new place in life. However, stories of his marksmanship in the war eventually drew some less-than-scrupulous challengers from the woodwork. After defeating them, the stories began to feed on themselves, eventually culminating in some collateral damage against people close to Nori. In response, he took to the road, drifting from town to town until his identity was once again realized.
In this world, a worldwide drought began in the late 1880s. Over time, vegetation died off, the oceans were scorched, and tornadoes swept through the bread basket states. Drifting between towns, Nori was caught in a dust storm. He did his best to power through it, but eventually found himself succumbing to the storm.
And then he woke up in a hotel.
