Charles had been killing and capturing for a good twenty years now.

Charles died with a smile on his face.
The following week, a raw recruit from the east coast stood in Charles’ place.
This story is inspired by a movie I’m watching on Netflix called, “Hostiles.” I’m halfway through it. The above plot is NOT part of the plot of the movie, but certain aspects are similar.
