Once the ground was interred for the construction of the Carcasseum Arena for games of AMPUTHEATRE, Severen McCain's shallow, unmarked grave was disturbed. This outlaw, known as "Severing" McCain in the Old West, was wanted (dead or alive) for many bloody murders involving dismemberment through rapid, close shooting with his twin six-shooters. Upon his capture, McCain was brought before the local sheriff who, with the townspeople, decided- all together now- "hangin's too good for 'im." McCain's hands were severed at the wrists, and he was loosed to run from a posse while still bleeding from his stumps. At hunt's end, McCain was shot point-blank through the face with his own pistol. Now a risen ghost, Severen McCain only fights in the arena to get everybody "the hell offa [his] grave." He routinely fires into the Carcasseum's crowd of spectators- good thing he doesn't give a damn about winning any pardons. McCain's cursed six-shooters fire endless rounds for him and him alone. Severen is just one of many playable Slashers from Gil Merritt's AMPUTHEATRE
