You folks reminded me... how to protect the weak.

Sundown - Summary

The Sundown Kid, or simply Sundown, is one of the many playable characters in Live-a-live, and the main protagonist in the Wandering chapter. He is the calmest of the main protagonists, perhaps due to his tragic past. Before the events of the Wandering chapter, the Sundown Kid was known all over the west for his duelling skill and lightning-fast gun aim. This led to a gang of criminals raiding his hometown, killing everyone in it and forcing Sundown to roam the desert, alone. He put a bounty on his own head due to the guilt he felt for being helpless against the criminals. However, his chapter gave him a chance to redeem himself, as he teamed up with his old rival Mad Dog to protect a town from O. Dio and his own gang of criminals - the Crazy Bunch.
