Towerpedia:George Latigo

George Latigo is a fictional character in author Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series. One of Farson’s Chief Lieutenants, Latigo is responsible for sending the Big Coffin Hunters to Hambry.

Descended from the Nordites, the people of the northernmost regions of the Inner Baronies, Latigo speaks with the abrupt, clipped tones of northern In-World. Latigo is hard-bodied and pale, with blond hair and a constant frown.

Latigo plotted with Eldred Jonas and Coral Thorin to murder Mayor Hart Thorin and implicate Roland and his friends in the crime.

Latigo’s plan backfired when Roland and his friends set fire to the oil tankers being guarded by Latigo and his men. They pursued the boys into Eyebolt Canyon, where the thinny that resides there destroyed them.
