“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and her name that sat on her was Death, and Hell followed with her…”
Mary Jane the Bounty Hunter wanders the Post Apocalyptic Wasteland seeking Justice, Vengeance, and Retribution. She was born into a world that was re-forged by atomic fire.
No one remembers how or why judgment day started, only the remnants of earth’s lost civilizations can be found in its scorched ruins. In the decades that followed, mankind slowly began to rebuild and repopulated through an unforgiving wasteland, craving new civilizations upon the ruins of the old world. With civilization, came the rule of law, and those who enforce the law. There will always be those who operate outside the law, and those who believe they are above the law; these are who Mary Jane brings to justice.
Her father was a lawman on a settlement on the edge of civilization a long a major trade route. One day her father was gunned down, in cold blood, in the line of duty by a gang of raiders attacking the settlement. After her father died, she watched from her hiding spot in her house as raiders killed the rest of her family, right in front of her eyes. The raiders killing spree didn’t stop until the entire settlement was wiped out. Alone, afraid, and drive by a primal instinct to survive Mary Jane wandered from settlement to settlement seeking shelter and substance, often by any means necessary.
Mary Jane attempt to steal from a legendary Bounty Hunter but was caught. Instead of severely punishing her, which was the wicked way of the wasteland, he took her in and raised her as his own. Being a former wasteland lawman like her father, the Bounty Hunter passed down his sense of right and wrong, along with skills Mary Jane would need to survive in this cruel and unforgiving world.
Upon reaching the age of 18, she joined the Bounty Hunter’s Guild in a major town, toward inner parts of the known civilized world. She quickly rose up through ranks to become a legendary Bounty Hunter in her own rights; capturing some of the most elusive bounties in the region. Mary Jane quickly built a name and reputation for herself, often for her thorough, relentless, and ruthless methods. With the combination of her cunning, resourcefulness, and intellect, no man, woman, or beast can evade her for long.
All a long as Mary Jane honed her skills as Bounty Hunter, her worked towards her endgame, to find her family’s killers and avenge their deaths; finding clues everywhere she goes.
