Mayor Dunlap’s Estate

Mayor Dunlap's Estate

This is the Dunlap’s estate. It is known as the most lavish abode in all of Gnashing, and is frequently admired by all who pass by. It is located in the farm country, and is the same home former Congressman P. Farro inhabited.

Michael has some troubling childhood memories here, as the third story room was where he committed twelve murders during the Slave Owner Slaughter.

Casey, Jackson, and Gus

Casey, Jackson, and Gus

Casey is an Irishman who is vulgar, funny, and despicable. He loves his ‘shillelagh’, which is nothing more than a blunt club.

Jackson is an Australian, who is well-built and as crude as Casey.

Gus speaks with a croaky voice, and always is agitated about something. He is heavy, and not too fun to be around.

Artie, Norman, and Willie

Artie, Norman, and Willie

These three are the first batch of bandits from Wild Bill’s gang.

Artie has a gold corner tooth and laughs like a hyena. He is by far the most annoying of the group, but also happens to be the brightest.

Willie is a creep. Plain and simple. He has black, stringy-hair and spends the majority of his time searching for worms in the ground or picking his nose. He loves Sylvester, but despises Adam.

Norman is built like a statue. He laughs in a low, monotone voice.”Haugh, haugh, haugh.” He doesn’t say much else.

Wild Bill

Wild Bill

Wild Bill is by far the most menacing of all his bandits. He carries with him an 11 inch Belgium pacifier. The sawed-off shotgun is attached to a shoulder sling, and lining the interior of his black coat are steel hacksaw blades.

He was the father figure to my main character Michael, influencing him into committing both the Bandit Beach Massacre and the Slave Owner Slaughter.

Wild John

Wild John

We don’t get to meet Wild John until nearing the end of, “Way of the World,” but he is an intriguing character, to say the least. Michael meets John in the middle of the desert, and the stubbly-bearded man is wearing no clothes.

That’s right, he’s absolutely naked.

Michael inquires as to why, and the response strangely alludes to his connection with divine forces. Wild John goes on to say Michael is ‘from above’, to which Michael dismisses quite easily.

Obviously, being a ruthless murderer throughout his childhood makes it easy for Michael to be know that he is no angel.

Wild John leaves Michael with the curious words, “I have to make straight the way for the promise.”

Michael shrugs, and leaves the naked man with a potato sack to use for some pants.

Evelynn

Evelynn

Evelynn has apple-green eyes and a perfect figure. She causes Adam to lose his breath at first sight, and affects him to such a degree he becomes reckless in his pursuit to court her. Curiously, she looks outstandingly similar to ‘Hope Iden’, the star actress in Gnashing’s biggest play. Benny and Crank, however, insist that Evelynn and Hope Iden are not the same person.

Adam and James

Adam and James

This painting is of Adam and James. Adam is one of two main characters from my novel, “Way of the World.” James is the boatman, who transports people from East New Haven to Mr. Kingsley’s private island. Mysteriously, the island has never been recorded by any cartographer, and no other person knows how to navigate through the thick grey fog well enough to get there.
