J.B. McBride is the female Judge of Fort Kerium on New Texas. She is an ally, legal advisor and sometime romantic interest for Marshal BraveStarr.

History Edit

J.B.'s Scottish father Angus McBride was an ex-prospector; he ran the town's newspaper after being crippled by his former mining partner Tex Hex.

J.B. studied law at the Galactic Court of Justice and was later assigned to New Texas; she possibly requested the transfer due her father being on New Texas. She met BraveStarr on the interstellar transport, since BraveStarr had been assigned at the same time as her.

She comes to BraveStarr's aid from time to time, using a high-tech gavel given to her by the Prairie People - referred to as the 'Hammer of Justice' in the series - as a weapon.
