Mangas Colorados is an Apache Indian who appears in the tale Small Medium, Large Headache. Technically dead, he and his compatriot The Yawner are resurrected by the witch-doctor Misquamacus and given a borrowed body in an attempt to regain control among the Apache Indians and throw the pesky paleface, and brownface, and blackface, out of Howondaland. He is not a nice person to know and tends to gloat over potential victims of his creative whittling talent with sharp knives, explaining at length how a Toldean guest of the Apaches gave him the nickname "Coloured Sleeves". Apparently a very vivid roja up to the elbows.
