Holy rock and roll, let's step away from the game console and come back to reality for a bit. REAL DEFINITION: A dragoon is an elite member of the military forces, most notably with respect to cavalry. It is somewhat obsolete these days. The British and and the Americans both had them in the War of 1812.
