History:

(Red Warrior#4/2 (fb) - BTS) - White Cloud grew up with his Cheyenne tribe but an adult, lived and assimilated with white settlers, taking on their ways. The white settlers nicknamed him the Cheyenne Kid. He later heard of a new white governmental law declaring that any Native Americans who attacked white settlers would lose any claim to their homelands.

(Red Warrior#4/2) - At the local saloon, the Kid overheard landgrabbers devising a plan to get the local Native Americans drunk and encourage Cheyenne Chief Running Wolf to attack white settlers. The Cheyenne Kid left to warn the Chief but was knocked out in the alley. Recovering later, he rode for the tribe's settlement, but was wounded while having to shoot past two landgrabbers. He found his friend Black Bear, who told him the Cheyenne tribe were already intoxicated and preparing for war, spurred by white landgrabber Ruskin, eager to eventually take Cheyenne lands for the hidden oil. Running Wolf was gravely concerned by the Kid's accusations and ordered a trial-by-combat, despite the Kid's gunshot injury. The Cheyenne Kid still overcame his foe, even stopping Ruskin's duplicitous hidden gun. Seeing the Kid's noble efforts, Running Wolf halted the tribe's attack and hoped that the Cheyenne Kid had returned to his tribal family for good.
