Aces & Eights: Shattered Frontier
Henry Layton (Left)
Seduction, Art of
Born an Admiral’s 7th son, all that remains of his 8 siblings are himself and an older brother, the rest long gone tuberculosis and cholera. His father was grooming he and his brother to take over the factory they owned (and the source of his family illness’), but Henry took a different path. Heading out west, he set out to strike gold. Having been born to wealth, he lives life fast and hard, and hasn’t much care for hard work. That said, he’s got a soft spot for the downtrodden. Seeing his family and friends at the factory die to wasting diseases leaves his palm open for a friend. Maybe out in the open air he can finally be free from the shadow of death. Maybe out west he can strike color and live a life of ease.
