Character Design / Story Idea

The Gunslinger 

(Not to sure about the musketeer killing the dog and the ending)
Environment: western
Characters: cowboy, musketeer, sidekick
Target Audience: 13+
Style: steampunk

Story Idea:
A couple of young lads are at a Saloon in the west, and they spot the legendary ex- gunslinger sitting by him self. They start talking about how great he was and how he saved their town from bandits.

Then in France a musketeer who is the fasted knife thrower in the world is board and hasn’t had a decent challenge from anyone in awhile, hears of the legendary gunslinger and how quick he was with a gun and decides he wants to go against this gunslinger.

So the musketeer gets his sidekick, who carries all the musketeers’ equipment and they get on a contraption which is basically a hot air balloon and fly across the seas to the town of the gunslinger.

Once they land at the town, they start looking for him and finally find him at the bar and the musketeer proposes a dual between gun and knife but the gunslinger refuses to take part. So in anger the musketeer kills the gunslingers dog and waits for him to come out from the bar. 

The gunslinger finds out about his dog, he goes to his dog and spends a few moments with the dog and then makes his way to the musketeer and accepts his challenger.

They begin, facing each other from a distance, staring at each waiting for the perfect moment, the gunslinger with his gun and the musketeer with his throwing knives.

And within a split second its over, both still standing, both getting a hit of each over, the knife is clearly hit the gunslinger chest but he still stands. Then from the musketeer chest blood trickles, staining his fabrics and then he falls to his knees.

A few moments past, the musketeer’s sidekick tries and helps the musketeer out but tells his sidekick to stay away from him, the gunslinger still barely standing, and then the musketeer gives is last breath and falls. The gunslinger finally let’s go and falls to his knees, pulls out the knife from his chest and then kisses his gun and says “I love the taste of revenge”
