Concept

Rancher, Expat

Power

Nothing On Me: With the expense of 1 AP, Quigley can roll a second ranged, strength, agility or perception roll in adddition to any regular roll in a turn. If this roll is the same stat as the one prior, whichever is higher is used. If it is a different stat, it is treated as a second action in the turn(representing a snap shot, diving out of the way, retaliating against an attack with brute force, sizing up the situation, etc.)

Aspects

Home On The Range: Matt is an expatriated American, who fled to NZ when the economy went under in the US, selling off his stock and land. Before emigrating, he was an avid hunter and gun collector. Since coming to NZ, he has been unable to keep his skills up outside of scoped rifles and shotguns. He makes up for it with extreme familiarity at long range, owing to having owned enough property to be able to stay in practice and maximize the parts of firearms still accessable to him.
As Far as The Eye Can See: Quigley can see significantly better than average at range, both day and night. Has difficulty reading or seeing fine detail up close without glasses though.
Cows Around: Livestock are expensive to keep, and frequently expenses were beyond him, necessitating that he learn how to make do with his own two hands, whether that be fixing his truck, caring for stock when sick or injured, stalking and culling predators and varmints, and so on.

Personal History

Matthew Quigley grew up the son of a small time rancher in the American Midwest, and took over the family land with his father's passing. With the crash in the US economy, he made the hardest choice he'd ever made in his life and sold everything off, packing up and fleeing to far off New Zealand, where he bought as much land as he could afford, and attempted to eek out a living there as he had in the states. The shit hitting the fan largely went by unnoticed until it found him. Eventually forced to leave his home, the bulk of his herd dead and the remainder long since scattered, he had attempted to reestablish himself in place after place, each time being driven out by things too great for him to handle.
