Some called him a Guardian Angel, others (mostly those who'd looked down the barrel of his gun) called him The Angel of Death. He was blessed by the Prophet that he'd never be killed by bullet or blade, and as a token of that promise he was instructed never to cut his hair. Word of that promise made him a Western legend, and plenty of outlaws put that promise to the test, but none successfully.
