It did seem like she was trying to organize a transfer for him to the Concordia Damsel out of Distress: Jazz gets an elbow to the face for trying to hold her hostage at gunpoint during the events of Wing Commander II and its add-ons, and even stands up to the Kilrathi when captured in Wing Commander III.

In Wing Commander IV, he orders the creation of a bioweapon designed to weed out "weak genetic stock". In his heydey, Tolwyn was undoubtedly one of the fleet's best pilots and commanders. In episode 6 of Wing Commander Academyhe runs a blockade by playing chicken with a Kilrathi ship, and again in episode 8 he makes a badass quote before climbing into a fighter himself.
