Frank Mackley

Background story

Local guy in his mid 20's. Son of Marie Dillinger and Joseph Mackley. Known for his knife skills and being repulsed by guns and other ranged weapons. "Nowadays everyone seems scared of a fair fight". Only thing better known than Frank's loathing of guns was his selfrighteousness. He gained local fame after his infamous uncle robbed a bank and, probably by accident, killed a woman and child. Soon after this uncle John disappeared. Rumour has it that Frank killed him to set things right. Since no body was found, there never was an official police investigation. Frank always refused to comment when asked about it, dismissing it as 'a lot of nonsense'. Saying that his uncle probably just ran off and was hiding somewhere until everything cooled down. He never forgot to mention that the police had let it come way too far and that they should've acted sooner. Frank obviously had self-righteous tendencies though. Once he was caught for beating a boy of 12, who stole a purse in a crowded street. He got away with a warning from the local police sergeant and no charges were pressed. Another time he got into a bar fight after having an argument about the sentences that the judges gave to criminals these days. According to $char the only thing the justice system is good for, is giving friends and family of high placed bureaucrats a job for which they have to do nothing but sit up nice and be pretty. After these incidents folk started to call him names like 'the judge' and 'the enforcer'. He did not like such names, because they send out the wrong signal to both friend and foe. He was just Frank, a law-abiding citizen.
