Welcome to the Wild West on Mars...
Gatling Gary is a poor cowboy and has been robbed by his latest employer. If that wasn't bad enough, he is chased through the canyons of Mars by an angry Farmer after he accidentally walked over his crops while fighting through a resolith dust storm.
An independent cowboy down on his luck, he only has the wishes of a poor Spurn girl, Clarissa, wanting to be trained so she can exact vengeance against those who killed her family. Even in desperate need of cash, he refuses to help, afraid to be associated with the poor race, once enslaved a few years back and then emancipated.
He runs from town and tries to find his way to Aurium City for a second chance and to place some distance between him and his enemies. But instead, a voodoo witch doctor spells him. Fighting away his destiny, he is forced onto a mountain near Clarissa.
He relents to help her but only to train her. He doesn't want to have anything to do with her enemies, the Rotger Brothers. Begrudgingly, he teaches her to shoot a seven shot revolver on Blackhead Mountain. But there is something else bothering him, a lingering feeling...
With very few friends, animals seek him out. A mangy dog won't stop pestering him. A domesticated lion stalks him. A beautiful horse attracted to him. These creatures don't seem to be enough for Gatling to overcome his losses.
But his path leads him in circles until he is faced with an inevitable choice.
