Your Scott Lancer unit has a mean right hook which the Johnny Madrid Lancer unit and the Cooley unit****can attest to.
Your Scott Lancer unit is a smart, effective strategist. The Murdoch Lancer unit, ***** the Johnny Madrid Lancer unit and the Cipriano unit****** can all verify this for you.

Knight of the Old West:
Your Scott Lancer unit is a champion and defender of children, gentlemen and damsels in distress – no matter the cost or sacrifice to himself. This is a trait which he shares with his brother, the Johnny Madrid Lancer unit.
Your Scott Lancer unit shows a wonderful knack for stacking bales of hay. If he is stacking hay in particularly hot weather, the unit unbuttons his shirt allowing for sneak peeks at his bare chest. But please do not let the Glory unit******* near him at this time as she tries to distract him from his hay stacking duties.
Your Scott Lancer unit along with the Johnny Madrid Lancer unit became one-time train robbers. In the style of Robin Hood, the Lancer brother units stole a falsified land deed from a corrupt sheriff to return the deed to its proper owners.
Your Scott Lancer unit became a one time deputy after capturing a would –be- thief. .Keeping the Zee unit******** locked up until her legal trial could begin was a trial of the Scott Lancer unit’s patience and duty.
Your Scott Lancer unit displays a talent for fishing and it is a relaxing pastime for the unit until his brother the Johnny Madrid Lancer unit begins shooting at the fish.
Your Scott Lancer unit plays the piano to the appreciative audience of his father, the Murdoch Lancer Unit and the Widow Hargis unit********* though he admits he is rusty because it has been a number of years since he has practiced the piano.
Note - We must advise caution when leaving your Scott Lancer unit unattended for a period of time. The unit is prone to being shot at. One time after the Scott Lancer unit had been shot off his horse, the Murdoch Lancer unit and Frank unit********** sheltered him between two boulders. Also, the Johnny Madrid Lancer unit does not take kindly to the Scott Lancer unit being shot at or threatened. And you do know that riling the Johnny Madrid Lancer unit is not good for your health, don’t you?
The Scott Lancer unit requires frequent cleaning and grooming. We recommend relaxing soaks in a tub of warm water, plus morning and evening ablutions when work on the ranch and cattle drives permit. Also recommended is some quiet time for him to enjoy his reading. In fact the Scott unit may courteously request all of the above.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. My Scott unit with the unbuttoned shirt will not stop stacking hay?

The chip is another preset chip of this unit, if you wish to deflect it have the Murdoch Lancer unit or Johnny Madrid Lancer unit challenge the Scott Lancer unit to a game of chess. The chess match restores the strategizing chip back to normal.
