In 1908, Caligo’s first costumed hero, Cavalier, came swashbuckling to the scene, making quite a dent in the crime rate of the growing city. His acts of selfless bravery and daring stunts inspired others to heed the call to fight crime.

One such person was Gus Gustavson. Gus had recently retired as Caligo’s mayor, a position he held for 8 years after two decades as a bounty hunter in the badlands of the unexplored west. During his time in both jobs, he honed his skills with the six shooter and trained himself to be able to move silently and undetected. When reports of the cavalier’s acts began circulating throughout Caligo, Gus saw a chance to keep cleaning the streets of the town, but by his own rules. He fashioned himself a costume, complete with a crude gas mask, holstered his pistols, and hit the streets running as the Ghost. His idea of justice was much more black and white than Cavalier’s, and the two were at odds for several months before they were finally able to come to an agreement that eventually blossomed into a partnership. Soon, they had formed a small band of heroes they called the City Watch. Gus died saving the lives of the entire town from a villain called the Bombardier.
