Charles "Chuck" Dawson, Jr. src

Charles "Chuck" Dawson, Jr. was a cowboy in the late 19th Century.

After his father, Charles Dawson Sr., the owner of the Circle-D Ranch, was killed in a range war against employees of the 4-G Ranch, Chuck Dawson was sent to live with his uncle Dan. As he grew up, Chuck trained himself in athletics, marksmanship, and even jiu-jitsu. When he came of age, he set off for the town of Red Gulch to take revenge on the 4-G cowboys who killed his father.
