Jimmy Two Squaws was a trader, guide, and translator who interacted and bartered with several native peoples including the Kiowa and the Comanche.


Background Information[]

Jimmy was born in Louisiana to a fur trader and a slaver's daughter. Jimmy married two native women at some point before his first encounter with Bohannon and Elam.

Season 3[]

Bohannon hires Jimmy to assist in negotiations with the Kiowa for spruce timber. Things go awry when Red Bear, the chief, agrees to give the timber but only if Bohannon and Elam win at stick ball. Jimmy neglects to tell Bohannon that if they lose or quit they will be killed. Things become even worse when Bohanonn refuses to kill Red Bear's oldest son during the game and Elam and Bohannon are set to burn at the stake. Jimmy saves Bohannon and Elam by agreeing to marry Red Bear's bearded daughter Buffalo Face. He also manages to finagle a deal for the railroad to take all the timber they need at no cost, outside of Jimmy and Buffalo Face's marriage. ("The Game")

Season 4[]

While trading with the Comanche, Jimmy once again came across Elam. Jimmy grew concerned at Elam confusing Charlotte Rice with Eva Toole and Elam's firm belief that he is a warrior with great magic despite his obvious impairment of having one functioning eye. Jimmy attempts to prevent Elam from going with a war party and is fatally stabbed by Elam.
