Ed's Notes: How does a decent guy like this get mixed up with a psycho like Rorschach?! Oh... And the Owlship? May just be THE coolest vehicle ever to transport a hero. What. A. Ride. 😲

BTW... Why do none of these guys have Advantage: Connection: Watchmen(High)?

The BG/R left out the bit about "Sam Hollis" and the lower Wealth rating.

First Appearance: Watchmen #1 (September, 1986)


  1. So what do the two Wealth numbers,15/8?

    1. You know... I don't know. The 2e BRG Book just lists 15. The Watchmen Sourcebook lists the 15/8, but... That Sourcebook is set up and laid out kinda WEIRD? And it's not really explained (that I can FIND) why there are two numbers listed.

  2. I think the “8” represents what he has on hand as “Sam Hollis”.
