  • Judging by some of his conversational dialogue with fellow lawmen, where he refers disparagingly to federal law enforcement officials acting like they were "big men", he is yet another character who has a degree of frustration in how the federal government is managing the affairs of the Western states.
  • According to his dialogue, he considers himself a crack-shot when in a shootout, although it is unknown how this affects the player shooting at him.
  • Also going by his dialogue when shooting, he considers his colleagues incompetent, as he will bemoan how, were it not for his fellow officers, "the suspect would already be down".
  • He can be heard saying that he makes more rounds to shops where he receives discounts, indicating that he may be corrupt.
