Character description

Orrin Porter Rockwell: Mormon fanatic. Personally converted by Mormon founder Joseph Smith, and convinced that Smith had had a revelation about him, Rockwell became Smith's guard and agent of retribution. There is significant evidence that he became a Mormon assassin, although he was never held accountable to the law.
