Ricky Hooly was born in a small cabin north of Kamensk. His father Nicholas was a lawyer who preferred a life of farming. From an early age, Ricky learned from his father to stand up for those who cant.. When Ricky was twenty years old, the family moved to Kamensk.
It took seven months to travel from his cabin to Kamensk. On the way they encountered other farmers who gave them a breeding pair of hunting dogs. The Hoolys settled in Kamensk, where Nicholas bought a ranch. It was assumed that Ricky would study to be a lawyer, but instead he became an assistant to a farm Veterinarian. He traveled between Kamensk and Gorka Learning how to treat sick and injured cattle. He did this for a wile staying with his parents so he was able to save some money. at the age of 27, he returned to his old cabin after his parents passed, where he married a girl named Urilla. Sadly, she died a few months after their marriage. After the death of his wife, Ricky moved on to Chernogorsk, where he worked as a factory hand for a year.
Cherno was mean, and it was ugly. The stench of the its streets fell second to the odor of the unbathed tramps who had just finished a nights work in the brothel . Adding to these smells were the blends of whisky, tanning leather, kerosene and carved carcasses, a revolting combination. Fist Fights were spontaneous, either over a woman or a card game. When Wyatt crossed the hills into Cherno, he knew he wouldnt stay there long.
As He was leaving Cherno for the last time reports of some weird flu or something were making there way around the bars. As Hooly made his way back to his Cabin north of Kamensk It became clear to him. It wasnt a flu. And it was going to end everything. The closer and closer he got to his home the hard it became to travel. Between Bandits, Religious Lunatics and the dead he only felt safe traveling At night in the woods.
When he made it back he realized he was too late. His house made was dead, banging around in the kitchen getting her blood on everything. And the Kennel where he Kept his one and only real friend was wide open With Cash (his dog he raised from the breeding pair given to him) gone. But there was no blood in the kennel and the latch was not broken but opened purposefully. He took care of the cleaning made and Laid her to rest in a nice grave in the wood line near his house. when he cleaned up the mess she had made he found a note. She apparently knew what was about to happen to her and didnt want cash to either be eaten or starve to death in his kennel. So she let him out after feeding him well.
Hooly only has one thing he has to do, and thats get his damn dog back
