comment Strange use of であった in narrative
It depends what you mean by "setting the scene". I think こうして here refers to what went before, i.e., the way that Bucky saved the four people, which could be some kind of description or actual events as observed. The meaning would thus be: "Here we had Bucky, who in this way had rescued four people". こうして could be omitted from the sentence and the relative clause would have the same narrative force.
