Frohawk Two Feathers

Pure-blooded 'horse power'
Joao Do Nascimento
Former cavalryman in the Portuguese Empire before its capitulation to Frengland. Although he considered himself a 'pure blood', he was an octoroon. Routed the Batavians at Agulhas with a cavalry charge but was ordered to abandon his pursuit of the defeated, allowing them to retreat into the hinterlands. A mistake.
