Behind the scenes

  • The Mysterious Stranger perk was originally designed by Scott Bennie.
  • The Mysterious Stranger wields a revolver and wears a fedora and overcoat, like a protagonist of 1950s film noir.
  • There were several unfinished drafts of a book by Mark Twain titled "The Mysterious Stranger," in which the title character claims to be Satan's nephew, and which contain various references to the number 44.
