Lassiter. Lassiter was created by Zane Grey (Diamond Outfit, Buck Duane, Sergeant King) and appeared in Riders of the Purple Sage (1912) and The Rainbow Trail (1915).

Lassiter is a gunslinger in the western frontier of America. He had been an Easterner, but he lost a girl he loved to the Mormons, and that drove him somewhat mad and turned him into a mean killer with a special grudge against the Mormons. Thanks to the love of Jane Withersteen, the head of a ranch in Utah, Lassiter reforms.
