Matilda James was born in Virginia to well to do Plantation owners. Her parents wanted her to go to school to learn how to be a good wife and to eventually be married off to a wealthy gentleman who could give her everything she desired. They did not think it would be too hard to find a mate for Matilda as she had very exotic features of pale skin and piercing green eyes that the boys found all too appealing. Now if they could just keep that family secret under wraps, everytjing would be just fine.
That time came too quickly for Mattie who had a sudden awakening on her 18th birthday when she was told about her family history and that she was to marry Mr. Samuel Lee, a well known war Colonel and nephew of Robert E. Lee. After meeting him and hearing hours of war stories, Mattie knew this life was not for her. She longed for adventure so she contacted her uncle who told her to save up for a train ticket and come out west. Mattie learned how to play cards and she was surprisingly good at it. She always won and developed quite a reputation. So much so that it was good that she managed to save up enough and sneak out of town before the people that lost a small fortune to her in poker came to collect. Her parents would be worried about her, Mattie knew that and felt bad. But that sense of adventure and curiosity was just too strong…
Mattie’s uncle is Jimmy James who is a rancher outside of Lost Angeles. He was very well known in these parts for being quick with the cards and always winning. Now he has gone missing and Mattie is trying to find him. She desparately hopes that she is not too late…
