Doc Shelley is a smiling light-hearted rascal. He grew up in Missouri during the ’40s and loved the frontier life. He was a Tom Sawyer-like outdoorsy boy and enjoyed hunting, fishing and fighting; anything active and exciting.
Surprisingly, he was also good at school and impressed the local schoolteacher with his natural intellect. One of the Senators sponsored him a scholarship to study back east and Shelley did well enough to attend medical school.
He spent the war patching up soldiers along the western front. Although he is a great shot, the horrors he witnessed caused him to swear an oath to never shoot a human being. However, he demonstrates his marksmanship skills to intimidate potential combatants to talk rather than shoot. He also does trick shots such as shooting guns out of opponents hands, scaring horses to throw their riders, cutting ropes, shooting oil lamps to start fires, etc. He is also quite happy to throw a right cross when necessary. His medical training provides some help in identifying non-lethal ways to incapacitate opponents without serious injury.
After the war, he worked for the War Department providing physical rehabilitation and reconstruction for veterans. He is also a pioneer in the field of cosmetic surgery and prosthetics. As a result, Shelley is very adept at crafting realistic facial disguises.
Despite his vow “to do no harm”, the Pinkertons as a combat medic and he returned to the western frontier. He has worked among frontier towns and with Indian tribes throughout Texas, Oklahoma and Nebraska.
