Wild West Karnifex
Karnifex is the supernatural masked killer whose appearance is constantly changing, as his curse moves from one man to another.
Wild West Karnifex (also known as KowBoy Karnifex) took possession of the young son of a Federal Marshal (or a Ranger?) and a Native American woman, turning the friendly kid into a deadly gunner.
Raping the same women that his father and his uncle swore to protect from the abuse of the white men, Wild West Karnifex is just waiting for the chance to challenge his own father in a quickest-draw contest.
For the moment, though, the kid is just happy to wait for the night, sneak out of the firecamp, don the leather mask of Karnifex and have his actual clothes transformed into the Karnifex suit. That's when the slaughter begins.
Yes, the everyday clothes of the kid are actually a disguised version of the Karnifex suit: in the Wild West, there was just no way to carry around a backpack for the full Karnifex suit without rising suspicions.
How the kid manages to remain so sunny and charming, even if he spends the whole day wrapped in the Karnifex curse, is truly a mystery of its own.
