Cop carcass on the highway last night. Soon, the accumulated black filth will be hosed away and the streets of Tulsa will turn into extended gutters overflowing with liberal tears. Soon, all the whores and race traitors will shout "Save Us!" and we will whisper "No." We are the Seventh Kavalry. We are no one. We are everyone. We are invisible. And we will not compromise. Do not stand between us and our mission or there will be more dead cops. There are so many deserving of retribution and there is so little time. And that time? Is near.
~ The Seventh Kavalry twisting Rorschach's writings and beliefs into Their infamous speech.

The Seventh Kavalry is the central antagonistic faction of HBO's 2019 adaption of Watchmen detailing the resurgence of masked vigilantes in the 21st century. They are a white supremacist organization based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Taking inspiration from the writings and beliefs of the deceased vigilante Rorschach, the group's racially based crusade derives from its apathy towards the police force and the Redford administration, whom they deem traitorous and foolish for their apologetic disposition towards African-Americans and other minority groups within the United States. Despite the Kavalry's adoption of Rorschach's trademarked mask, it is clear that the misinterpretation of his beliefs has been the catalyst for the group's crimes.

History

After Rorschach's death in the 1980's, several of his writings were available to the public eye. Several white supremacists in Tulsa, Oklahoma got inspired and decided to twist his writings and beliefs into their own as they begin a so-called crusade against the Redford Administration in the 2010s.

The terrorist-group was originally active around 2015-2016. Before going underground, a purge took place during which members of the Kavalry invaded hundreds of homes belonging to members of the police. Multiple police officers and their families were murdered, leading local law enforcement to begin donning masks in order to secure their identities.

In 2019, the Kavalry's resurgence was initiated after one of their members, Carmichael shot and critically wounded a black policeman named Charlie Sutton.

They were also responsible for the events on White Night.

Known Members

  • Joe Keene - deceased.
  • Carmichael - deceased.
  • The Suspect - deceased.
  • Judd Crawford - deceased.

Trivia

  • It is implied that the Seventh Kavalry may be the successors to the KKK (Ku Klux Klan) in the Watchmen universe. At the very least, they are based on the KKK.
  • Unlike the Seventh Kavalry, Rorschach, who is their main source of inspiration was never a racist and views everyone as equally useless regardless of their race or gender.
  • When the SDCC teaser trailer of Watchmen (HBO) was released, a figure wearing a Rorschach mask with eye-holes and worn-out clothing was present. As a result, many fans assumed that it was Rorschach II aka Reggie Long. However, that would not be the case as in episode 1 it was revealed that he is a Seventh Kavalry member named Carmichael.
