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

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.


Thorns and Blossoms

  • "Jack Thorne, he's a pistol, pun intended." ~ Lilly Belle Stafford
  • "A fierce man with a fierce reputation. A name I've heard long enough to respect. His lineage has given me much entertainment in this last century." Prince Nicholas Loring of Sonoma.
  • "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
  • "I adore him for the gift he's given me. I wouldn't be who I am tonight without him, and every bullet, every experience that would send my heart hammering if it still beat...that's all because of him. No regrets." - Miranda Thorne
  • "Pretty sure it'll be another 20 years yet before my most in-depth interaction with Jack is something more substantial than him pointing roughly in my direction and saying, 'Hey kid, fetch me a so and so, and one for this nice lady here as well.'" - Master Harpy Forbes, Domain of Austin
  • " 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
  • "A true gentleman to the core. He knows how to show a lady a good time. I am honestly glad I finally got to meet him. I do hope we get to interact more in the future." - Amelia Thorne
