Deadlands Reloaded: Sunday Night In The Weird West
A man and his dog
Russell hired on as a soldier to protect the Union Blue Railroad and stayed with them until the railroad ran low on money and had to let much of its security force go.
On patrol one evening, his unit encountered a group of undead miners—zombies—and his unit fell under attack. Russell was the only member of his patrol to survive. The only reason he survived was Lucky, a stray dog who happened upon the fight. Russell had been knocked unconscious, but Lucky revived him by licking him on the face. Russell got right back on his feet, fought off the zombies for all he was worth and survived.
In Chapter 2, Russell and his dog Lucky, joined the posse on their way to Coffin Rock.
In Chapter 6, Russell left the posse to woo his true love, Shelley Pearl.
