Deadlands: The Flood
Captain Roderick Pennington-Smythe
An aging gentleman and a monster hunter
“Smythe,” as friends call him, is a true hero in every
sense of the word. He first saw action in the weird wars of
the Crimea and was baptized in the supernatural evil that
rose wherever extreme violence raged.
His experiences there changed him forever. While lesser
men might have withdrawn into madness or despair, Smythe
resolved to do everything in his power to repulse the tide of
darkness even now washing over the earth. He has served
the Explorer’s Society—and the Twilight Legion—loyally
for many years, a man of towering spirit and intellect. As he
gets on in years, he’s still vigorous but looking to induct the
society’s next generation.
