Tex's cigar-smoking henchman and cousin of Deputy Fuzz - he was apparently the only Prairie Person to have taken up a life of crime. Like Tex Hex, he was mutated by Stampede, though in his case it was due to a bolt of energy shot by Tex at him after he first transformed, and it was possibly less of a transformation and more of a simple shock to him. As a result, he more closely resembles a haglike human and has gray hair. Scuzz is often reprimanded by the others for his constant smoking. Fuzz even arrested Scuzz for this until BraveStarr pointed out that smoking isn't a crime. Though why Scuzz wouldn't be kept in custody for his real crimes remains a mystery. Unlike Tex himself, he is somehow able to go into Fort Kerium to mingle with the population and aquire info for the Carrion Bunch.
Scuzz struck a deal with a purple skinned prospector named Tex to use the Prairie People as a slave work force. Tex in turn betrayed his mining partner McBride and chose to take all the Kerium they had found for himself and Scuzz. Leaving McBride tied and gagged on a cliff, the rumbling of their mining cruiser as it lifted off caused the cliff to colapse and McBride to tumble down, losing the power of both his legs.
But Tex and Scuzz had been too greedy for their own good. The ship had been filled past it's capacity and it failed almost immediately after liftof and crashed, leaving both Tex and Scuzz mortally wounded. The evil Broncosaur spirit called Stampede took advantage of the situation. He was looking for a servant to help him fight his archenemy Shaman and moldied Tex in his own image, restoring his body and giving him powers of transformation, destruction and sorcery. In doing so, Tex's face became more withered and bone like, and his brown hair turned white. Now known as Tex Hex, Stampede's servant's first act was to restore Scuzz back to health, although he did not gain any extra powers in doing so.
