Later, after Garvin died, Julian prepared to assume command, but when O'Neil challenged him to a duel Julian surrendered leadership to O'Neil.
Later, O'Neil ordered Julian to keep the Crazy Shoes nearby when the Mauve Shirts completed their part of the plan to kill Gregory Cass. When the Mauve Shirts attacked the Crazy Shoes, Julian was the only survivor. He fled to O'Neil, and survived the next two shootouts. He later became one of the first three Dragonstorm lieutenants.
