The McLean gang is a true story taking place in the 1880's throughout Kamloops and the Interior of BC. Given crime was significantly lower in Canada then the Wild West the United States faced, these three brothers and their friend standout as a unique piece of Canadian history.

Archie McLean

Archie was a mere 15 years old when he and the gang were terrorizing the Nicola Valley. He was big for his age and could drink most men under the table. He also had softer features much like his older brother but had a fair bit more education then the rest of the gang. He was in a constant state of humor and optimism to point of being ridiculous. He was a superb horsemen, better than both his brothers. What he had in skill, and optimism would be betrayed by age, being known to break down crying when things looked bleak.

17
Gender
Male
Description
Alex Hare who sometimes referred to himself as Dane English, was the only non-McLean but was accepted as one of their own.

A large razor sharp Bowie Knife was attached to his hip. Applicants should be between the ages of 16-24
