Biassou was so bad he was betrayed by his Chief of Staff: Toussaint Louverture.

Toussaint had finally joined the Haitian revolution after saving his white master and master's family.

It was Biassou who brought him in as Doctor in the Spanish army that was then fighting the french.

Toussaint had acquired African roots medical knowledge from his African-born father Gaou Ginou.

Soon, Biassou promoted Toussaint to be head of his personal guard, and his secretary.

Toussaint betrayed Biassou to Jean-Francois who put Biassou on a ship to Florida.
