Beauregard “Rapier” Travis is the most-decorated pilot in the Confederation of Dixie, the recipient of two Southern Stars for Valor. Travis was born in 1910, the oldest son of Great War hero Achilles Travis. Beauregard learned to fly just after his fourteenth birthday; his indulgent father bought him a Curtiss Sparrowhawk for his sixteenth birthday. Following the Crash of ‘29 and the secession of the Southern states to form the Dixie Confederacy, Travis quit Emory University and traveled west, hoping to join Dixie’s fight against the Republic of Texas. Initially based in Shreveport, Louisiana before that state’s departure from the Confederacy, Travis was the first in his squadron to make ace, earning the respect of most of his fellow flyers. At 27, Travis has been made a full colonel in the Confederate military, and is well known and respected in Atlanta’s social circles. His mix of high profile daring and modesty has earned him a host of admirers and flatterers.
