California Jack Thorne


Whenever you get into a row be sure and not shoot too quick. Take time. I’ve known many a feller slip up for shootin in a hurry.” -- Wild Bill Hickok


Truths and roses have thorns about them.


California Jack Thorne is an Elder Toreador the quintessential frontier type. Note the lean silhouette... eyes closed as if by the sun, though sharp as a hawk. He's got the look of both predator and prey.

Born a French Nobleman, he came to the Americas around the time of the French Revolution and has roamed the American frontier ever since.

  • "California Jack is a man of action, though his occasional 'Shoot first, ask questions later' attitude did land him in a bit of a sticky situation. Still, better to have jumped the gun than have ended up ashes." Elizabeth Flannery
  • "Jack...we share a love for Impressionists...and he always leaves an impression." Gabriel Thorne
  • "Yes. We share a great many hobbies, Jack and I. Perhaps you should learn to see the man behind the six gun and stetson. I benefited greatly from the experience." - Gawain Croy
  • "California Jack is a fine gentleman and a true artist. I could tell this quickly from our brief exchange in LA during the party on Mihail's ship. I will be sure to mention him if any come to me looking for fine firearms." - Laszlo Bako
  • "It is said that former highwayman men are the best gendarmes." - Eileen Vargas
  • "A true and gracious gentleman who knows how to treat a lady. I am the privileged one to have met him." - Chloe Pavlis
  • "Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that men should fear; seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come." - Constance Fournier

  • " You taught me that it is indeed the bird pierced by the thorn that sings the sweetest. '" Leonna Thorne
  • "Papa Jack is the original Thorne. He defined what a real Thorne is: a magnificent bastard devoted to his art, fiercely loyal to family (even when they don't deserve it), and lethal when you cross him. Don't you ever fucking forget that, or I will remind you with the heel of my shoe in your throat." - Scarlett Thorne
