Texas Ranger and member of the Ranger Special Force up out of Waco. He’s normally assigned to Company F (Waco) but has to cover Dallas at present due to the Special Force Ranger normally assigned to Company B (Metroplex) having recently been killed (late 2011).

When not involved with events concerning the group, Ranger Lorance is conducting his own investigations assigned to the Ranger Special Force team…some of the details of these may work their way into the notes.
