CHARACTER BIO:

Douglas started life with an early association to the Yewess Military - his father served in the Corps of Engineers. Douglas followed in this father's footsteps, being sent to Endía to assist with the construction of a bridge over the perilous Mammoth Gorge. In West World, Douglas is enlisted into a hastily formed militia to fight against the native Endíans. Douglas is placed in a regiment overseen by Captain Thomas Shallowhorne. Appalled by the attack on innocent women and children, Douglas defects right along with Captain Shallowhorne. He becomes a fugitive in what is later dubbed "The Shallowhorne Gang."

 In Return to West World, after the famous Battle at Box Canyon, the exonerated officer decides to stay on Endía. He becomes the Chief Deputy of Plymouth City - once again Tom Shallowhorne's right-hand man. In the years between the two novels, Douglas married one of Maria Shallowhorne's hired helpers at the "New Liberty" saloon - Emily. He was also joined in Plymouth City by his younger brother, Wayne, who likewise began to serve as a deputy.
