In The Name of L'Empereur
1st Lieutenant Marie Rois et Reines
Lieutenant Marie is a young, but very talented officer. However, since Jean-Marie Rois et Reine du Ronge is her uncle, she works hard to avoid any suspicion that Jean-Marie is pulling any strings for her in the Musketeers (which Jean-Marie doesn’t). A recent spat with several members of Remy du Montaigne’s Lightning Guard has lead to a self-imposed exile into the soonest available position, as long as it was as far away from Charouse as possible.
She maintains a strict regime, and demands the best from the Musketeers under her command, but she isn’t afraid to do the work herself. This, and her loyalty to her subordinates, has been rewarded with a fierce loyalty, second only to Jean-Marie himself (and, of coure, l’Empereur).
Her fiery temper is hidden under a lot of patience, which serves her well when dealing with the demands of the nobility in the area, however Maquis Roger du Brignac is testing her patience with his unwanted advances. While the maquis claims it is her beauty attracting him to her, she suspects it is her family connections.
