It is later revealed that Ravenwood is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Jennings & Rall, the company hired by the new government of the Allied States of America to administer the territory. When major Beck, the commander of ASA army in Jericho is transferred to other duties, a Ravenwood team under the command of Goetz is sent in to help with administrative duties. Goetz treats Jericho residents harshly, partly as a revenge for a previous defeat. His team confiscates supplies and harasses the residents, especially Jake Green and others whom he deems threats. He also confiscates the vaccine against deadly Hudson River virus. Despite their acts the Rawenwood team members are practically free to to whatever they want, as the government is giving them full immunity.
However, the team is later discharged due to embezzlement of J&R funds, leaving a whole team disarmed and left behind. The team is later wiped out by angry residents of Jericho and New Bern. Goetz himself is shot by Stanley Richmond for killing his sister Bonnie and then left hanging from a tree.
