Appearing in "The Winning of White Swan!"Edit
Synopsis for "The Winning of White Swan!"Edit
Seeing that his niece is troubled, Red Hawk asks White Swan what is bothering her. She explains that her problems are the same as always: That her love for the Apache Kid is not returned. Red Hawk tells her that unfortunately the Apache Kid is a born warrior and has no time for love, but White Swan is insistent that she wants to live his life of danger next to him. However, when Red Hawk tells her to be patient, White Swan informs him that she can wait no longer -- telling him that she has promised herself to Thundercloud of the Papajos tribe. She says this loud enough for the Apache Kid to hear as well.
When Thundercloud and his warriors arrive, he asks for Red Hawk's blessing to marry White Swan and agrees to undertake the ancient tradition: In order for him to be allowed to marry White Swan, he has to defeat the Apache's greatest warrior. To this end, the Apache Kid is chosen to fight Thundercloud for White Swan's hand in marriage. This plays right into White Swan's hand who had plotted this from the first, believing that the Apache Kid could easily defeat Thundercloud.
The Apache Kid however, has come to believe that White Swan wishes to move on and purposely allows himself to be defeated. When Thundercloud takes White Swan to be his bride, White Swan admits that she orchestrated the entire ordeal hoping that the Apache Kid would win. When Thundercloud refuses to release her from her bond he rides off.
The Apache Kid then rushes off to rescue White Swan, but since the Papajos would kill him on sight, he changes into Aloysius Kare and catches up with them. Kare then challenges Thundercloud to a fight to claim ownership of White Swan. Thundercloud gladly accepts the challenge, believing that a white man can be no match for him. However, Kare proves to be the superior fighter and easily defeats Thundercloud. While the warrior chief is down, he grabs White Swan and flees the area. To his surprise, White Swan is not impressed that she was rescued by Aloysius Kare, demanding that he put her down so she can walk home. She explains that she is furious that the Apache Kid did not come to her rescue and plans to have a terse conversation with him once she gets back to the village. Aloysius Kare rides off, joking about how he just can't figure out a woman.
