Fardo Andrus is the father of Cort and was once the Bondsman of Gilead training Gunslinger's to be men and how to wield a gun.

He decided to adopt Eldred Jonas as his son after seeing him gracefully exercising some horses, and began his training as a gunslinger. Eventually however, after the effects of the Laughing Mirror on Eldred he confronted him and admonished him causing his adopted son to demand his test of manhood.

He bested Eldred during the test causing him to be exiled as a failed gunslinger into the west. Another man, a weed eater at the bar in Ritzy also says he was a trainee gunslinger but was bested by Fardo and made to head west.
