Les Mousquetaires du Roi Soleil
Léon Alexandre de Montaigne XIV
“Of course the Empereur believes in Theus. He looks in the
mirror each morning, doesn’t he?”
— Lady Jamais Sices du Sices
L’Empereur du Montaigne is quite possibly the most powerful man in the world, and also the most arrogant. He cares little for his people, beyond seeing them as a source of income. L’Empereur is his own true love. In addition, he is flighty and eccentric. He will one day decide to renovate a theater in Charouse, and for that day all his considerable power comes to bear on the project. The next day, he’ll dump it off on a subordinate, not really caring whether it ever gets done or not. His subordinates have learned this, and often pass these projects along to ambitious young nobles looking to win l’Empereur’s favor.
L’Empereur is showing his age. His hair, when it isn’t concealed by a white powdered wig, is almost completely gray. His cheeks threaten to sag into jowls, and he is somewhat overweight. L’Empereur dresses only in the finest, most fashionable clothes, and is usually accompanied by at least one pretty young lady.
