OriginEdit

Juan Moreira was a working ‘’gaucho’’, corralling horses for famers on the Argentine plain. His guitar strums serenaded a rancher’s daughter and they married. Unfortunately, the deputy mayor Don Francisco was jealous of their union and started charging Moreira for anything he could imagine.

Moreira went to Francisco for help recovering a payment of 10,000 pesos from store owner Mr. Sardetti. Instead, Moreira was charged with attempted robbery and jailed for two days. Moreira challenged Sardetti to a facon duel with the promise of stabbing him for every peso taken. Later that night Moreira killed Franscico and two soldiers in an arrest attempt, fleeing.

Every bold outlaw wanted the praise from defeating Moreira – but first they had to find him. Moreira’s first action was to evade trouble. If not, fights quickly ended with the opponent dead in the dirt.

EffectsEdit

The knife will tingle and shake if the user is likely to enter a confrontation in the next upcoming minutes. A more wrenching motion indicates more opponents will attack together. Usually, the wielder barely escapes fights; other times, the warning comes too late to use. The knife seems to have some control, guiding movements that will result in a quick end to the fight.

Slashing or cutting any person with the blade causes some of their wealth to transfer to the user. Amounts granted depend on the amount and severity of the injuries. Money only changes hands if the wielder truly does not want to engage and is the harassed party.
