BiographyEditWhen he meets D in the Desert Town he's in the middle of another mediation between two hookers with the help of a popular and strong Frontier Aphrodisiac. Telling D of the agreement for the job to cross to the town of Barnabas from the Desert Town. The reason he can provide the information is because his employer is the person that D seeks. The lawyer has a three-story-building in Barnabas. He crosses the Desert of No Return in a flyer, being one of the few people who can use such a device. Thornton also hires the Bullow Brothers secretly with out D's knowledge long before their encounter to do away with D, it's not clear whether the same one who employed Thornton also had him set this in motion.
