Character Bio

Tom Lea photo
A poor farmer of Irish descent from the impoverished Carolina hill country. Craven, aspiring, though at times great fun, always suspicious and can't rise above a deep rooted jealousy of his betters. He buys Kizzy as a 15 year old and rapes her resulting in the birth of their son George whom he takes under his wing and teaches him about cock fighting. He has a deep struggle that torments him in owning a slave that is in fact his son.
