Brice is a fairly average looking lad of smaller stature and build. He is in good shape, which gives him a fair enough build and makes him attractive enough, but there is little particularly notable about the brown haired, green eyed man beyond the large sword he usually carries on his back.
Brice is strong willed, level headed, proper, well spoken and confident. At least, he is when women are not involved. When around women, most particularly in dealing with them, he becomes star crossed, and can not help but fall for them. He begins to stammer, becomes insecure, can hardly string two sentences together, or sometimes simply fades into the background.
Brice was born to Jean and Cosette Fortimide, their third son and child (Mathis and Sacha being the other two, in order of birth). Jean was an upstanding member of the Musketeers, and Cosette, a lesser daughter of a minor noble family. Jean was a master swordsman, skilled with the greatsword and the dualing sabre, and quite skilled in the maneuvering in the courts. He had a fine reputation as a man of the king and a musketeer, and with three healthy sons and a lovely wife, things looked promising at home as well.
Jean, being a bit of a ladies man, had an on again off again fling with a married noblewoman, Emeline DeLosera. Emeline felt it was more than a passing fling, and had ambitions beyond her status as well as her gender. It was fate that Brice fell ill that morning, and was left by Cosette under the care of a midwife as she traveled with her other sons to see her father. Jean was in Emeline’s arms when Cosette’s carriage was attacked, and the she was brutalized and raped before everyone in the carriage was killed.
Despite his indescressions, Jean loved Cosette dearly, and her death took him hard. Harder still when he learned of Emeline’s plot when he foiled an assassination plot against her husband, also orchestrated by her. Jean left the Musketeers, still in good standing, and went to concentrate on holding on to the one think he had left of his love, his son Brice. Jean, however, would never touch nor eye another woman again, feeling he had betrayed his love more than enough already.
Brice was a mere lad of 5 when this all transpired, knew very little of his mother. His father, still in need of a living, turned his court skills towards being a merchant, and built a reputable trading business for himself, dealing with many of the court’s finer thing, and a favorable supplier of many noble families. Brice learned to work the courts and people from his father, and he also learned his father’s skill with swords, for no son of Jeans would be a slouch in a duel.
Brice also developed a unique voice, one that turned heads and earned him a reputation as a performer. He had range few men could match, and near perfect pitch and tone. Indeed, his voice had a near mystical quality, and Jean, no slouch with a flute, often accompanied his son when he chose to perform. Jean was proudest of his son when he sang, and Brice’s few memories of his mother singing inspired him to keep practicing, to come closer to her.
Jean taught his son what he could, imparting his morals, skills, and loyalty to the king to Brice. However, Jean’s avoidance of women rubbed off on Brice as well. Having never observed a proper loving relationship up close, nor seen his father even look at another woman, Brice found it hard dealing with the fairer sex. Indeed, upon spotting one, it sent his heart aflutter, his heart pumping, his mind racing, and his body yearning. Indeed, Brice falls hard and fast for just about anything feminine that would give him the time of day. The confident young man he’d become quickly melted away into a quivering mass of nerves.
Often content to hide in the background when he could, he would often stammer, blush, or otherwise stumble over himself around women. Love came and went easily with him, and it was more than just the lust of spying a woman. He was putty in the hands of a woman who wished him to be. As a gentleman and a sweet, upstanding boy, he found himself always the friend, and never the lover, and that bothered him not one bit, for as long as the women were happy, he was happy. And his feelings of love, well, he had neither the confidence to act or speak of them, nor the knowledge to do so if he could get the courage.
As Brice became old enough to fend for himself, he sought out the Musketeers, to join and serve like his father did, for the good of the King and the country. Among the ranks of men he was safe from his problems with women, or so perhaps he’d hoped, and with his father’s sword and his mother’s locket, he was off to make a name for himself, and make his father proud.
Blessed by The Patron Saint of Lady's Men: +3 to all charisma skill uses in the eyes of Ladies
legendary Item: Mother's Heartstone Locket: This locket is an Amulet of Protection +1 that also gives Brice a +2 bonus to Perform(Sing)
Tristan: Tristan comes from the fine d’Toussaint family and does his family proud. He’s a large man, with large appetites, that would be rather scary if they did not know the soft and honorable man underneath. He is a man of principal and morals, even if he tries to hide it under the large party animal exterior, and Brice can respect that.
Gabriel: Brice envies him. He seems so smooth, calm, and in command around women. Women around Brice just seem to run into him, need to straighten their dresses, loose something on the floor, or trip on things into his arms. Gabriel seems to have them seek him out, and has gotten into trouble on more than one occasion. He’s a gambler as well, and rather good at it. There’s something a bit darker under his exterior though, and he’s elusive about where he’s been.
Hyancinthe: The Blacksmith has an eye for blades and the heart of a gambler. He serves Gabriel, though how that came about Brice is unsure. He seems to have his own motives, but does wish to be a Musketeer some day. He needs to learn the control Gabriel has with his Gambling, before he looses more that just his coin at the table.
Jacen: The newest Musketeer, Jacen is a fine lad that gets along wonderfully with Brice. A little naive, Jacen doesn’t tease Brice about his ineptitude with women, even though he’s sure Jacen finds it as humorous as his other companions. Brice has tried to take Jacen under his wing and watch over the lad, and the two have become good friends. Jacen is the one he feels he can confide in the most.

Tristan d'Toussaint is a huge man. Standing nearly seven feet tall and weighting nearly as much as two men, Tristan is a mountain of muscle. The d'Troussaints have always been known for their strength though, often staging competions of strength at their chateau. Tristan has long black hair with green eyes. As large as Tristan is, there is almost no fat on the man, his huge chest and arms ripple with muscle. This huge frame is fueled by enormous amounts of food and wine, the more the better. Tristan loves life, wine, women and song. He nearly always has a smile, even during combat. He fights with his strength, over-powering his oppenents. He has a strong sense of honor and fair play though and will not take advantage of an opponent unfairly.
The d'Toussaint family has lived in the small and fertile valley of Colonne du Ciel for generations. There they own a large swath of land, rich with vineyards and golden wheat. They are a noble family, well respected in Rowaini society, producing strong fighting sons, and the occasional exceptionally beautiful daughter, often sought by more powerful families. In fact the strength of the d'Toussaint's is well known throughout the valley. d'Toussaint sons have been marching to war and returning with the spoils as long as any can remember. With bountiful fields and children, the d'Toussaint family is truely blessed.
It was in this verdant land that Tristan was born. The fertile valley, always good the the d'Toussaints was doubly good to Tristan, giving him strength unheard of in the valley, rivaling that of his great-grandfather Henri d'Toussaint. It was Chevalier Henri d'Toussaint's valor and loyalty in the great war that gained him the title of Baron d'Colonne du Ciel and expanded the family lands in the valley. The d'Toussaints remember well that royal boon and have always been staunch supporters of the Throne.
Tristan had all he could want, the finest horses, the finest tutors, both scholarly and martial. Yet d'Toussaint blood runs hot and the men do not find the bucolic life comfortable until later in life. So Tristan set out for the capital to serve in the royal musketeers. Tristan had always been taught to respect and protect the King and the Crown, for from that office eminated the power of the family and indeed Rowain itself. So while many men would have been reluctant to leave such a peaceful paradise as Colonne du Ciel, Tristan left for the excitement as well as a sense of duty.
The Royal Knights were a possibility for Tristan. But he wanted to be in a more cosmopolitan settinf for a while, and so chose to join the musketeers. Duty to the throne does not prohibit enjoying life after all and a man is not always assigned to chores. Tristan does still plan to join the knights at some point. The blood of Henri runs strongly in Tristan and the call of battle beats strongly in his heart. The Royal Knights are his next step, but for know he serves his King as his musketeer.
Tristan is well accustomed to living a life of luxury. He loves fine wine and food. He is very giving and treats his friends often when they go out. Tristan loves combat, it seems what the d'Toussaints were bred for, the drafthorses of the Rowaini nobility. In duels Tristan will often seek to use his strength to trip his opponents, putting them on the ground and demanding their surrender. Tristan also becasue quite well known back home for brawling, and his punches were rightly feared. Tristan's larves size and strength often lead others to think he is slow and stupid. Tristan allows other to think this as he can put it to his advantage at times, few who know him would consider him stupid however.
Brice: Tristan just shakes his head when he sees Brice at the tavern. Here the saints have rained blessings upon him with the women, and all the boy can do is try to catch it with a leaky bucket. Brice is great to have around, and livens things up with a song or two after a fight. And the lad's got a good arm on him, if'd he focus on the sword and not the songs. But the saints lay out a different path for all, and as long as Brice keeps the woman coming around, Tristan can always find several who prefer muscles to music.
Gabriel: Gabriel is a great deal of fun to be around, and the musketeer who seems to enjoy life almost as much as Tristan. Whether drinking, fighting or carousing, Tristan enjoys his company. After losing his shirt (literally) to him one night though, Tristan never plays cards with the man. There is that core, some black dark secret that crosses his face at unguarded times that Tristans sees. But a gentleman never pries and Gabrial is as staunch a royalist as Tristan, which shows no matter how much he cheats at cards, he can't be all bad.
Hyancinthe: A model servant, expecially for Gabriel. Tristan doesn't think too much about Hyancinthe, as he is well a servant. But Tristan still treats him well ensuring the choicest left-overs are reserved for him. Tristan also trusts Hyancinthe to sharpen his blade, which to Tristan is no small mark of respect and trust.
Jacen: Jacen is the sapling of the group. He is bent and twisted by the new forces that swirl around him of the court and women, yet he always straightens up, a little stronger and more mature each time. Tristan looks to the lad as upworked metal, within him lies something great, but something that needs to be hammered into shape. Tristan offer to spar with Jacen often and can't quite figure out how the boy always is needed elsewhere at that time. Now if he'd only loosen up and not quit after only 6 drinks!
