Governor Feron runs Paris as his personal playground, maintaining a corrupt grip on the city with the support of his Red Guard Bullies.
As the King’s favoured half-brother he’s untouchable – and a constant thorn in the Musketeers’ sides.
Feron’s Byronic elegance and easy charm disguise the burning shame of his illegitimate birth and the agony he suffers from an incurable spinal condition – ironically the one thing he did inherit from his father, Henry IV. Despite Louis’ patronage, Feron remains the perpetual outsider at the Louvre and feels increasingly betrayed by his royal “family”.
Feron self-medicates against the pain, drawing him into the city’s underworld and leading him to join forces with amoral gangster Lucien Grimaud.
Their combined ruthlessness and hunger for legitimate power make them a deadly threat to the people of Paris and the Musketeers’ most dangerous enemy yet.
