Raymonde de Trebouchard   King’s Musketeer SR 8

Location: King’s Musketeer.

Description: Good looking with blond hair and blue eyes. He is impulsive with a dreamy, romantic temperament that makes him absent minded.

Tractability: Impulsive; +1 to persuasion.

Factions: King’s Musketeers, family Trebouchard.

De Trebouchard is a young musketeer from Bourgogne. He is the younger son of the Sieur de Trebouchard, a noble family near Auxerre. He is a typical King’s Musketeer (Retainer 3). He has fine blond hair, blue eyes and wears a blue plume in his black hat. He has a dreamy, artistic personality is very absent minded.

After their humilation in the affair on the Pont Neuf Helias de Cedelhac, Raymonde de Trebouchard, and Léonide de Termopillae sought revenge on Gaston. De Trebouchard challenged Gaston to a duel after Gaston had defeated Cedelhac. Gaston easily defeated and humiliated Trebouchard, breaking his sword, the sword that Termopillae lent him, then disarming him of the sword that Lucien de Bourges lent him, then wounding Trebouchard in the leg. Trebouchard was satisfied that honor was done and became friends with Gaston, a fellow poet who had spared his life. He asked Lucien to carry letters to his family outside of Auxerre when the party went there as part of the Tales of the Black Riders.

He appears in the Musketeer’s Seamstress by Sarah D’Almeida; a young Musketeer who relieved Porthos from guard duty; his Christian name is invented.
