A cowboy from North America who befriended a young girl from a native American tribe when he was younger and learned how to use the lasso. Many years later, he was saved by the native Americans when he suffered misfortune and the passionate Kevin Ayuso remained with the tribe. But good things never last and the tribe died out. He didn't want to stay, so he decided to roam the European continent.
The cowboy carries a lasso which he can use a certain amount of times. When he uses it, he can aim to lasso a survivor towards him to be carried on his shoulders until either the player or the survivor decides to get off, or he can lasso himself towards the hunter to block a hit for a wounded survivor. He initially is 10% slower at decoding but will experience changes in his decoding speed depending on the gender of the survivor decoding with him; females making him decode 10% faster, while males make him decode 30% slower. When he stuns hunters with pallets, they are stunned for 20% longer than normal. He is considered part of the rescuing class.
- Lasso Skill: Hitting a teammate will drag them towards you and bind them to your back; whereas hitting a hunter will drag you towards them. The Cowboy can lasso balloons or a survivor on the rocket chair to rescue them, which expends a large amount of durability, but hitting anything else only subtracts a small amount.
- Hero: The hero on horseback is both brave and tough. Hunters he hits with pallets are stunned for 20% longer than normal.
- Wild: As he is free, undisciplined and dislikes complex machines he decodes 10% slower than other survivors; however, when he decodes together with a female character, his urge to impress earns him 10% increased decoding speed. He feels exceptionally exhausted while decoding with male characters and decodes 30% slower.
- Protective: If hit by the Hunter while carrying a female character, his strong protective instincts will kick in and the Cowboy will take damage twice (his teammate receives none). If he is carrying a male character, both he and that character will take damage once.

Kevin was raised on a ranch from an early age and was responsible for the cattle's grazing. One winter, a stray animal attacked him, but a young Native American girl rescued him. She was a member of the Cherokee Native Americans that had fallen prey to famine due to long-term forced migration and the harsh living conditions. The girl left in search of food, and originally intended to steal the herds that belonged to Kevin's family.
Kevin brought her in and gave her an American name-- Angelina. Angelina regarded Kevin as a friend, taught him the technique of the lasso, and established a friendship across races. Soon after Kevin's parents told him they would return Angelina to the reserve. The two said goodbye and Angelina gifted her rope to Kevin.
However, during this time, the Homestead Law had been introduced. It promised taking the lives of Natives would reward money. Due to this Kevin's parents didn't return her to the reserve, but instead, exchanged her life for a bounty.
Once Kevin found out about the terrible truth he made the decision to leave his household.
Several years later he lost his way in a snowstorm. On the verge of death, he was rescued by a Cherokee and taken back to the tribe. The chief recognized his lasso as that of his daughters, and inquired about it. Kevin couldn't bear the sins of his own blood and chose to lie. Thereafter he joined the Cherokees and learned about their culture.
Unfortunately, soon the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876 would occur. The conflict between the Natives and the US government intensified after. The tribe was attacked as well, and Kevin was suspected of being a spy due to his origins-- it seemed the truth about Angelina would soon be revealed. A non-native among Natives is respected, but not to be trusted.
Shortly after, Kevin left a farewell letter and all his funds to the tribe chief, taking off towards the European continent with nothing but his beloved lasso.
