How Col. Tavington joined the Tourney

As the colonel (and therefore leader) of the Green Dragoons, Tavington is portrayed as a charismatic sociopath and a brutal commander. Long ago, his late father squandered the family fortune, along with Tavington's inheritance. He becomes interested in becoming a landowner in the Ohio territory after the war, and is nicknamed "The Butcher" by Brigadier General O'Hara. The character is loosely based on Banastre Tarleton.

After tearing down about six homes harboring rebels against the British, Col. Tavington had spotted an extremist gang being led by Grog who wants to shower the world in darkness.
