Tyrone Butler is a gambler. Born in the East, he was sent west by his wealthy father when the older man feared his own life and the lives of his family were in danger. Ty was a young man then, in his late teens, but already he had felt the lure of the cards, of the sportin' life. As the series begins he is in his early thirties, already an accomplished gambler - mostly Poker and Faro. Aware for years that his father and mother and other family members had all been murdered - though he is still not sure why - he is the target of occasional assassins. For this reason he is not only adept at cards, but gun play as well.
