The young man who became known as Billy Buckskin was born sometime in the late 1830s. By the time the Mexican-American War (1846-1848) was in full swing Billy was 16 years old and an expert tracker, hunter and survivalist. He worked next to his father who was the Indian Agent for the local Kiowa Native American tribe. After Billy's father stopped a Kiowa brave named Nocana from convincing the Kiowa into going to war against the Osages tribe, Nocona murdered Billy's father in an attempt to frame it on the Osages in the hopes of tricking the US Army into going to war against the Osages. Billy brought his father's body to Fort Ironsides where he and Soapy, an old family friend, examined the arrow and realized that it was a Kiowa arrow, and not an Osage. Convincing the soldiers to stand down while he confronted Nacona alone, Billy and Soapy went after the renegade Native American, who at that point had amassed a small band of like minded renegades. The pair fought Nacona and his minions on the side of a mountain, and while Billy succeeded in defeating the renegade band, Nacona fled. Billy then vowed to hunt down Nacona and avenge his father's death.
Billy and Soapy soon became a regular staple at Fort Ironsides, regularly clashing with outlaws, Mexican soldiers, and renegade Native Americans, among other threats. In one of their earliest episodes, Billy and Soapy snuck out of Fort Ironsides to get reinforcements and supplies from Fort Banner, avoiding Mexican troops along the way. Later, they came to the aid of a stage coach that was attacked by the Gavin gang, escourting Sally Frosby back to Fort Ironsides to be reunited with her father, Captain Frosby.
