Lud makes the PERFECT bandit! XD
Hmm, the only thing you're missing is the rich land baron who is secretly the real mastermind behind Lud's acts of banditry, so that he may disrupt Army operations in Groovy Gulch and marry the fair Connie. Oh yeah, and you know, take over the town.
Yes, someone like that would round out the cast nicely. With a twirly mustache.
