"My mother always said, never trust a man who can't handle his Whiskey."
―Horton Boone.[src]

Horton Boone is the leader and self-appointed preacher of a New Orleans resistance cell in the US. He is shown to be a drunkard, communist, and an anti-capitalist as well as anti-Nazi.

He is one of the most important and famous Resistance leaders in the US.

Background Edit

Before the Nazi's occupation of the US, he highly advocated against the military intervention in Europe conducted by the US and its Allies since he thought this action was merely meant for the capitalists of Wall Street to fill their pockets with war profits while sending innocent young men to their deaths. During WWII, he had a small gang advocating civil rights as part of their communist beliefs. After the Nazi's occupation of the US, he formed the Resistance to fight back against the Nazis with little success to the point that he nearly gave up hope, merely fighting to survive in the isolated ghetto of New Orleans until, after an initial disagreement over political ideology, he is recruited by BJ for the Kreisau Circle. His group also managed to steal and reprogram a Panzerhund.

According to Grace Walker, Horton has all connections to all remaining Resistance cells in the US. As the result, it is important for BJ to recruit him to rally and unite all the Resistance cells to ignite the second American Revolution.

Trivia Edit

  • Horton Boone appears to be a composite of various real-world historical figures from the United States' "Sewer Socialism" movement which came to prominence between the First and Second World Wars, including activist and Socialist Party USA candidate, Eugene V. Debs.
  • His character could be seen to be a homage to The Reverend Horton Heat, a psychobilly band from Dallas.
  • It is possible that BJ could have the first "Horton's special" whisky because his new body has a more powerful metabolism.
