Background: Horace Higgens came to America in 1860 at the age of 25 after his family succumbed to typhoid. He is a fourth generation blacksmith. He sought out the frontier to lose himself in, to take himself to a point far removed from his old life. There, he found the love of a good woman (Maria Rigaldo), who taught him Spanish, and bore him two beautiful daughters, Gabriela and Esmeralda.
Horace was happy, productive as a blacksmith, and all was well with the world. But for the bandits. They attacked the town, looted it, and made off with the women. His wife lay dying after putting up resistance and Horace swore vengeance. With no time to lose, he left his wife in the care of a survivor and took off after the men responsible.
It took him months to track them down. They had no idea where his daughters were. Sold to the mines or into prostitution. When he returned to his home, he learned his wife had not survived. Again, Horace was lost. He wandered around for a year until he found work on the railroad. He vows no more comittments, but his heart is not entirely made of stone. He just once again needs to find the love of a good woman.
He still maintains hope that he will one day be reunited with his daughters. He carries a daguerreotype of his girls in his breast pocket. In it, Gabriela (15) is laughing at something her sister Esmeralda (14) has just done. It was to be re-taken as his wife felt it wasn't proper behavior for young women (Maria was a loving mother, but strict--unlike Horace). It was taken just a week before the attack by the bandits and is the only thing remaining from their house (which succumbed to fire).
