Elwood Calhoun from Lakota Honor
Before we bring him in, let's look at his connection to the heroine of Lakota Honor by Kat Flannery.
Calhoun is interested in marrying Nora Rushton, who spends most of her days locked up in her home with a father who resents her for her healing powers. Calhoun isn't the only one after Nora.
Lakota native Otakatay has been hired to kill the witkowin - that is, witches like Nora. This, of course, opens a whole other can of worms which may have dragging Otakatay's sorry butt in here. But for now, we have Elwood Calhoun, chomping at the bit.
Where the hell am I? Can I make money from this?
Good evening, Mr. Calhoun. Welcome to the studio of Nighthawk Talks. I'm Nighthawk...
Hawk? You look like an oversize blackbird. Are you some kind of injun spirit animal, because I don't believe in that nonsense.
Well, I can see why Miss Rushton isn't rushing to marry you.
Nora Rushton will be my wife. I can give her a life she’s always dreamed of, besides I’m quite the catch. I went all the way to Chicago to get this gold tooth.
From what I understand, Miss Rushton's father doesn't want you to marry her either.
That drunk? Ha!
And then there's Otakatay...
No half-breed will stop me. I get what I want. (laughs) I’ve got reinforcements and I’ll come back with a vengeance.
What makes you think you can get away with this?
I am rich and handsome.
Money can't buy love.
I’m not looking for love. Didn’t you read the story? Money has always gotten me what I want, so nice try and I never give up. I’ll get Nora if it’s the last thing I do and I’ll kill that damn half-breed in the process.
Please, somebody remove our guest from the studio. If you want to find out what happens to this charming gentleman, read Lakota Honor. I haven't met Nora and Otakatay yet, but I'm already rooting for them.
