* KnightTemplar: While his mindless cruelty with the hunters can make him seem more like a PsychoForHire, underneath that beats the heart of a proud fascist. As he states at the dinner with his superiors; he's happy to be stationed at the mill, and he wants facism to win and destroy the "evils" of freedom and equality. He wants his son to grow up in a "new clean Spain" and he'll kill and torture all who defy the new regime to see that happen.
