History: "The leader's name was Lash - some called him the Major, others the Hanged Man. Story was he had gotten strung up once, and his body left dangling as a warning to others. In the middle of the night, a strange wagon came, cut the body down, and carted it away. When next seen, the Major was alive, but he no longer had a soul. He became a Hardtimer, always picking disturbed personalities to ride with him." John Gaunt, fresh from the loss of his true love, was one of the early Lawkillers, Spook rode with them too at some point after Gaunt had left the group.

It appears that Lash needs to feed of the souls of others to continue on - which is why he wanted Spook back so badly, as she is nothing but soul.
