Who is Tex

His Friends

His Friends

El Morisco, Jim Brandon, Montales, Tom Devlin... And Pat Mac Ryan when the going gets tough!

As well as his three main pards, Tex has a huge range of  
friends. We'll mention just a few here. El Morisco is a Mexican scholar of the occult, and he's of Egyptian origin. He lives in the small Mexican city of Pilares, where he is looked after by his butler Eusebio. He knows the secrets of plants and herbs; he used to teach in Egypt at Cairo University, he's an   expert in Egyptian and Aztec magic. He has in-depth knowledge of Pre-Columbian Mexican civilizations. And when there's some "supernatural" enemy lurking around, Tex knows who to call on to defeat the enemy. Jim Brandon is a Colonel in the Mounties, the Canadian Mounted Police. Brave and highly experienced,
he summons Tex whenever he's in real deep trouble. So our hero moves from the scorching deserts to the snowy expanses of the Great North. Pat Mac Ryan is a gigantic Irish boxer, strongly attached to his native land (although he's the only Irish tee-totaler in history!). He doesn't know how to use a gun, but with his enormous strength, he's extremely useful to Tex. Montales is a Mexican outlaw, one of Tex's companions on his wild chases. Together they have defeated the dictatorship in Mexico. Montales then became Governor, and he's one of the few honest politicians in the Tex stories. Under the guise of being a politician, he still cherishes the fiery spirit of an adventurer! Cochise is the chief of the Chiricahuas Apaches. A blood brother of Aquila della Notte, he has long ceased to fight against the white man, as he believes this is the only way Native Americans will be able to survive. Tex considers him as an extremely wise man and a mine of information, and in fact Tex often turns to him to seek advice.   
Among Tex's other sporadic companions in adventure, it's also worth mentioning the brawny Canadian trapper Gros-Jean, and Lefty Potrero who owns a boxing gym in San Francisco and has been around for years but never shows signs of losing his strength; there's also Tom Devlin and Nat McKennet, police officers in San Francisco and New Orleans respectively. Tex often goes to help them and shows that he can cope with things magnificently not only out on the prairies but in the urban jungle as well.
