Musketeers who's who

Musketeers who’s who:

“Real life” means an actual historical figure of the seventeenth century.
“Book” means The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, in which these characters or historical figures are at least mentioned.
“Show” is BBC’s “The Musketeers.”
“Fic” is Rainjoy’s Affinity!Verse (http://rainjoyswriting.livejournal.com/188726.html and http://rainjoyswriting.dreamwidth.org/187727.html)

Edited to add: I am not counting listing of real life historical figures as spoilers.  I am not counting listing of characters in The Three Musketeers as spoilers for the show and/or fic.

Please add additions and corrections in the comments, and I will edit accordingly.

(*spoilers for the fic*)

Aramis (René d'Herblay) -- made up, book, show, fic (Fic: Aramis is a water affinity.  He is fourteen when his rift breaks.  The fic starts when he is sixteen, but wanders back in time at times to when he was fourteen and fifteen.)

Porthos du Vallon (Isaac) -- made up, book, show, fic (Fic: Porthos is an air affinity.  He is sixteen when his rift breaks and the fic begins.  The first chapter, "Camberwell Rain," was posted March 15, 2014.)

Athos (Athos is the Comte de la Fère -- Olivier d'Athos de la Fère) – made up, book, show, fic (Fic: Athos is an earth affinity.)

D’Artagnan (Charles) – very loosely based on real life, book, show. There was a musketeer named Charles de Batz, Comte de Montesquiou, who went by d'Artagnan. (Thank you, Niitza.)  (Fic: Aramis hears his name in a dream 850+ pages into the Affinity!Verse.  July 7, 2015: 1200+ pages in, still no d'Artagnan in the Affinity!Verse.  June 4, 2016: Around 1600 pages in, Affinity 'Verse Athos hears Aramis say d'Artagnan's name again, and Porthos realizes what it means.  July 2017: the three find d'Artagnan.)

Circle: Aramis, Porthos, Athos and d'Artagnan.

Constance Bonacieux – made up, book, show, fic (Fic: Constance is a fire affinity, in a circle with Flea. Teen!Constance is not married, but she did have a creepy boyfriend.)

Anne de Breuil/la Comtesse de la Fère/Milady de Winter – made up, book, show, fic
(Fic: Athos’ ex-fiancée Anne, earth affinity)

Marsac -- made up, show, fic (Fic: Marsac is an air affinity)

Serge – made up, show, fic

Philippe, Louis XIII’s older twin -- made up, show. But see: The Man in the Iron Mask
Wife Agnes and baby Henri – made up, show.

Flea and Charon – made up, show, fic (Fic: Flea is a water affinity)

Ninon de Larroque (sp? -- Thanks for the comment, WhiteSheepCBD.  I still think my guess at spelling it (de la Roque) makes more sense, but whatever.) -- made up, show, mentioned in the fic

Circle: Flea, Constance, Ninon (blonde Swiss air affinity), missing earth affinity.

Suzette -- made up, show, fic.  (She's a ghost in the fic.)

Isabelle (later Sister Helene) -- made up, show (Aramis' first love)

Pastor Ferrand(?) -- show.  (Fic has a Dr. Ferrand)

"The widow" (Alice) -- made up, show, fic (kind of -- Aramis mentions her, but teen!Porthos has no idea of what Aramis is talking about.)  Note: In the book, Porthos is seeing a wealthy married woman who becomes a widow.

Emile and Maria Bonnaire -- made up, show, fic (Fic: As of early 2015 in real time, Maria Bonnaire is an earth rift waiting to happen.  As of June 4, 2016, Flea tells Aramis that Maria died.)

Vadim -- made up, show

Labarge -- made up (as far as I know), show

Comte de Rochefort – made up (as far as I know), book, show

Count Mellendorf and his daughter Charlotte -- made up?, show

Real life:

King Louis XIII – real life, book, show, fic (Fic: Louis is an air affinity)

Queen Anne (Anne of Austria) – real life, book, show, fic (Fic: Anne is an earth affinity)

Armand-Jean du Plessis, the Cardinal de Richelieu – real life, book, show, fic. (Fic: Richelieu is a water affinity, teen!Aramis calls him the Cardinal)

Christine, one of Louis XIII’s sisters, married to Victor Amadeus, son of Charles Emmanuel I, Duke of Savoy – real life, show, fic (Fic: Christine is a fire affinity, and it’s mentioned that she got pregnant.  Affinity!Verse Aramis sees Christine's husband without knowing his name.) Christine’s children: Francis Hyacinth and Victor Emmanuel -- real life.  Christine's child: Louis Amadeus -- show.

Completed circle: Louis, Anne (Anne of Austria in real life), Armand Richelieu and Christine.

The Dauphin, who will be le roi soleil, the Sun King, Louis XIV -- real life, show (Fic: Aramis sees him in a dream.)

Cardinal Jules Mazarin (originally Giulio Mazarini) -- real life, in Twenty Years Later (second book).

Captain Tréville of the Musketeers (Jean-Armand du Peyrer) – real life, book, show, fic. (Fic: Agent Treville, Aramis calls him Captain)

Marie de’ Médicis, Queen Mother (mother of Louis XIII), Regent while Louis XIII was a minor – real life, show

Marie de Rohan, Duchesse de Chevreuse – real life, book (In the book, she's Aramis' mistress.  She had a very interesting real life.)  This has nothing to do with the Affinity!Verse, but she's a character in fics on Archive of Our Own.

King James I of England, VI of Scotland – real life

King Charles I of England – real life

George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham – real life, book

I am adding second season characters shortly after an episode airs on BBC America.

June 5, 2016: Rainjoy says she won't be writing fic about season three, but I've seen the first half of it now.
June 6, 2016: I saw the rest of it.  I have a lot of feelings.

(*spoilers for characters*)

Made up, show: Phillipe Achille de Bourbon, Governor Feron, Louis' illegitimate half-brother.

Made up, show: Sylvie

Real life and show: Gaston, Duke of Orleans, known as Monsieur.  Louis' legitimate younger brother, who plotted against him.  The plotting happened in real life, too, although not the way it's going on the show, obviously.

Real life and show: Henrietta Maria, Queen of England and sister of Louis XIII.

Real life: Oliver Cromwell, mentioned by Henrietta Maria on the show.

Made up, show: Lucien Grimaud (but Grimaud was a valet in the book, so that's where they got the name)

As of March 15, 2015, let's celebrate a year's worth of the Affinity!Verse. :)  With Rainjoy's March 22 post, the Affinity!Verse passed 1,000 pages.  As of late March, we're through season two of the show.  As of March 22, 2016, let's belatedly celebrate two years of the Affinity 'verse and other Musketeers fic.  WhiteSheepCBD tells me that the new season (season three) will start in April 2016.  As of June 2016, the Affinity 'Verse is 1500+ pages and counting.  July 2017: Rainjoy's arm pains slowed down her writing, but we've gotten to d'Artagnan now.

Affinity!Verse circles:

Completed circle: Louis, Anne (Anne of Austria in real life), Armand Richelieu and Christine.

Soon to be completed circle (as of July 2017 in real time): Aramis, Porthos, Athos and d'Artagnan.

Incomplete circle: Flea, Constance and Ninon (blonde Swiss air affinity), missing earth affinity.

As of June 25, 2016 real time, Affinity 'Verse Milady, who's an earth affinity, says that she doesn't need a circle.


I went to bed around 1:00 a.m., I think.  I got up around 8:00 a.m., then went back to sleep until 11:15 a.m.  I guess I needed the sleep.

I want to get cards for Uncle P. and Aunt P.T.'s birthdays.

Later: Mom and I went to the dollar store and got cards.  We went to the Christmas Tree Shop and got tea for Aunt P.T.  We went to a grocery store.  We went to Wal-Mart.  It was a very productive trip.

Later that that: I watched several YouTube episodes of Geekvolutions takes on Marvel movies and Netflix shows.

Friday so far

I went to bed around 1:00 a.m. and got up at 10:15 a.m. or so.  That wasn't too bad.

I have a sore throat.  I had felt like I was getting a cold the last couple of days.  Dad has bronchitis, and walked around coughing for a week before Mom got him to go to the doctor.  I guess he shared.  (Thanks, Dad!)

I didn't have any plans for the day, but I guess my plan now is to go to the doctor.

Later: I went to the library and renewed some books.  I saw A.L. leaving as I went in, but we were on a crosswalk across the road, so we didn't stop and chat.

I saw the new doctor in the practice, Dr. K.  She seemed very nice.  She said so far what I had was a cold, but if I didn't feel better in 5-7 days to come back.  She recommended some OTC stuff, like regular Mucinex and saline nasal spray.


I went to bed around 12:30 a.m. and got up at 9:00 a.m.

I went to the exercise club to do my exercises.  Mom went to the swimming pool right away.  I joined her after I was done with the exercises.  It was a good day for the pool.


I stayed up way too late reading.  I got up between 11:00 and 11:30 a.m.

I got gasoline, but found that the usual road I would take to the allergist was blocked off, so I retraced my steps and found another road.  I got there about 1:05, when my appointment was at 1:00 p.m., but it took a few minutes for the doctor to be ready to see me, so that was okay.

I finished a book about the AIDS epidemic.  It was an interlibrary loan book.  I went to the library just before it closed to return it to a circulation desk person.  I saw T.S., V.'s mom, who had just finished taking an Excel class.  We went outside and talked for a bit.


I stayed up late, but got up around 10:00 or 10:30 a.m., I think.

I went to the exercise club and did my exercises.  It was raining hard when I went there.  It let up considerably, and I went to a grocery store.

I read a lot of fic.  I stayed up way too late reading that.


I went to bed at 2:30 a.m. and got up at 10:30 a.m., so that wasn't too bad.  I should have gone to bed earlier.

Mom and I went to the grocery store.  It was busy.  I said "hi" to Z. and P.

I read fic.


I went to bed late and got up relatively early.

I finished my editing job and read a lot.

Saturday so far

I went to bed early, and woke at 8:30 a.m.

Mom and I went to an indy bookstore and then to a grocery store.  It was hot and humid out.  I read some fan fiction when we got home.  Later, we went out to get dinner at the food court at the mall.  I have an editing job to work on this weekend.


I got tired at 7:30 p.m. last night.  I lay down and kind of drifted until 9:00 p.m.  I went to bed again a little after midnight, and woke at 7:00 a.m. for no apparent reason.

Mom and I went out and about in the morning.  We went to the library, and had the big shopping trip of the week to the grocery store.  We got a lot of heavy groceries.

I went to the exercise club after I dropped Mom and the groceries off.  My lower back was feeling bad.  Even though I'd worn my orthopedic shoes the last couple of days, I had sciatica running through that area.  I did the "NuStep," and reported to the nurse that the pain in my left knee was about a four when I did that.  My back wasn't bad on that.  Most of the other exercises on the machines didn't bother me.  E. had added some weight to the machines.  I could feel it in my shoulders, but that didn't cause pain to them.  When I did the treadmill, I had pretty bad pain in my hips, and pain in my knee.

I finished a book about hearing loss, and Mom got it out on her card.  I returned a book that another patron had put on hold.  L.B. and I studied some sign language in the library for a couple of hours.  I was just mentally exhausted for much of that time.  I don't know why.  I got a couple more books about hearing loss.
