Although he is a longtime crony of Leland Addanac and Gus Gentry, Amos has an even deeper, more mysterious history. This rickety old-timer has often claimed to be hundreds of years old after having discovered the coveted, mythical Fountain of Youth. Is this geriatric gentleman pulling everyone's leg? Well, there's no way to be certain, I suppose, but "time" has a way of revealing all sooner or later.
Gus has a heart of gold to match his gut of goodness. This retiree spends his time mostly bickering with his wife, Tilsie, and goofing around with his pal, Leland Addanac. All Gus wants in life is to enjoy a cold beer and a hot meal without his wife admonishing him about it.
