From the Tales of the American Burden, Y-7 Post Burden (P.B.).

Number 1 in C.W. Boyle's Burden chronology guide: "The Fall of Fort Wixon is often considered, as historian C.W. Boyle would recall, 'An unavoidable powder keg; the beginning of the end of the First Cephalophoric Age.' At this battle, the super-titan David Ocampo, featured with trademark crimson cape, defeated the United American League (U.A.L.) rebels in a strategic victory for the New Whigs.

The rebels, led by the General Francois Montcalm (far left) and The Immortal Jacob Coffin (center with sword), withstood the Whig bombardment inside Fort Wixon for 12 long days, before Ocampo and his allies laid waste to the meager opposing force.

Ocampo makes an example of U.A.L. leadership, forcing The Immortal Coffin to execute his own friend and ally, the General Montcalm, before Coffin’s own execution. Montcalm, wrapped in his father’s flag, would become the martyred symbol for the U.A.L., leaving Coffin to be all but forgotten by the rebels, who were disillusioned by his Immortal title.

Unlike other painters during this time, P.J. Endres Jr. has chosen to paint the moment before the execution, highlighting Ocampo’s ingenious cerebral manipulation of the enemy, a trait that would later land Endres a position as First Royal Painter of the Ocampo Sovereign."
