The Dead West
Professor Caleb Blake
When his wife died in child-birth, Professor Caleb Blake was left alone with not one, but two infants. Following her death, he hired a nanny and immersed himself in his work to escape the pain of her passing. When even that did not suffice, he packed up his family and moved out West. He chose Virginia City to settle in as it had become a sophisticated city in the West, allowing him to raise his children in a civilized manner not often found on the frontier.
