Biography: 

This icon represents the large number of slaves whom Sutpen would have owned as the proprietor of the largest plantation in Yoknapatawpha. Over the years the "wild" Negroes whom Sutpen "had brought into the country" mixes with other enslaved Negroes - "the tame which was already there" (67). All of these slaves self-emancipate themselves by "deserting" to "follow the Yankee troops away" (67).
