Dead Man's Hand: Wildcards
Kelly "Lil Slugger" Brandt
The kid firecracker of the Black Jacks
Kelly was born to two well-to-do Mormon parents in the town of Salt Lake City, Utah. Her parents loved her as a young, innocent child. That is, until she started growing. Perhaps cursed by her name, Kelly seemed to think she was a boy. She wouldn’t play with the other girls, instead leaping in the mud at the first opportunity, and playing rough whenever she got the chance. Mr and Mrs Brandt were appalled at the behavior of their only child. They tried everything to put the proper respect and education into their rebellious daughter but nothing worked. Little Kelly even took to wearing boys clothes, stealing the money straight out of her parents pockets. By the age of 14 the Brandts decided they had enough of this young upstarts horrendous mannerisms, and shipped her off to an all girl’s boarding school in New Mexico. Six months was all that Kelly could take. Late one night she made a daring escape by moonlight. She’s set out to explore the Weird West by her lonesome, with nothing but her trusty baseball bat and a willingness to hit people with it to protect her.
