Steve Henderson was a farmer from a long line on the outskirts of the ruins of Valentine, Nebraska. Such stability and constant effort on the part of his family brought prosperity, and the family posses several donkeys like other farmers in the area. They would be threatened in 2243 by a passing disease, however, killing the creatures in their pens. Steve Henderson was hosting a passing merchant at the time his mules fell ill, something the stranger offered to look at.
Selecting a small vial of liquid after a few minutes looking the creature over, he told Steve to pour it in the creatures water. Henderson followed his orders the next day and was relieved to see the beasts make a full recovery. His were the most fortunate creatures in the area, with most others perishing with the sickness. Seeing as how it was almost planting season, Henderson counted himself blessed and went on with his business. He would be bothered by a neighbor one day, however, offering to rent a donkey from him to plow his own field. Never one to turn down opportunity, Steve jumped at the chance, and would rent equipment ever since.
