"Ain't no such thing as devils, only men and the good and evil they do in the world."
― Wyatt Earp to Doc Holliday

Wyatt Earp was a famous gunslinger in the 1880s in the Western parts of North America. His escapades amongst numerous states left him a legacy that is known by many. Part of his legacy is the Earp curse which plagued his family line for generations. He had a famous gun, a Colt Buntline Special, that he christened Peacemaker.

History

Wyatt Earp was born in the Western parts of North America and became a lawman later in life. He was well-known in the West and hated by man for his upholding of the law. One day, another man pointed a gun to his back to execute him. Another man, a dentist, intervened by shooting the executioner first. The executioner was a man named John Henry Holliday. Wyatt knew then that he was indebted to Holliday and was bound to him forever. They soon befriended each other and they traveled across the lands together in search of outlaws.

Perhaps one of his most famous endeavors came during a shootout at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone where he sided with Doc Holliday and others against the Clanton's and their supporters. Little is mentioned about what happened during the shootout, except that the Clanton's lost and Wyatt alongside Doc were made famous by the event. According to Doc, when the bullets began flying Wyatt fired a shot and then ran away. Doc was forced to clean up the mess by killing the remaining Clanton's.

Wyatt's family became cursed after he killed Bulshar and Constance Clootie's sons. Part of the curse is that after his death, the 77 people he killed, resurrected as revenants and the only way to send them back to hell is by shooting them between the eyes with Peacemaker. To break the curse, his descendants have to kill all 77 revenants before they die, or else they will resurrect again.

In an interview Wyatt did later in life, he admitted to being reluctant to talk about the shootout at the O.K. Corral in the past. He opened up about it now, saying that he knew there would never be peace in Tombstone or anywhere else with those vermin Clanton's around. He was glad when Doc Holliday shot first. This fact is disputed by Doc, who tells Wyatt's descendant Wynonna that he did not shoot first. Wyatt didn't see the point in locking up backwater scum as they would have just made everything dirty again when they got out of prison. He praised Doc for being the most talented loose cannon he ever did see. In the same interview, he claimed that at the end of their time together, he just rolled Doc off whatever woman he was enjoying and pointed him in the direction of someone who needed to be killed.

Wyatt Earp died on January 12, 1929, at the age of eighty.
