Sheriff Colt is the tough, muscle-headed, no nonsense leader of Recoil Ridge. He appears in many missions. He was first introduced in the first mission of the game, after the player harvests food from the Farm. He mostly appears in missions that take place on his turf like the "Rescue Recoil Ridge Redux" mission. Sheriff Colt appears to be a headstrong, no-nonsense, rugged guy. He calls Lt. Morgan "the guy with the tall head" in the "Frontier Moonshine" missions. He later helps out Sheriff Pierce when he comes and asks to be shown how to be a better sheriff.
He is the typical frontier folk-raging at the player almost all the time. His rage is most seen when the Raider Kids' Mini Tank destroys one of his buildings. He demands that the player fix it up. Also, when the player steals his crops, he demands the player to pay up in gold as well. Most quests revolving him are basically making goods or turning in resources. He later is thankful that you came to the Northern Frontier; and even says that he is glad that you are there to protect the towns.
