Family of Jacques Boucher (to be appended as needed)

Spoiler: FATHER • show

NPC Name: Guy Boucher
Relation to PC: Father
Location of NPC: Chateaufaux
Description of NPC:

Guy Boucher is the boisterous, big bellied, hairy, burly father of Jacques. Despite standing at an impressive six feet-three inches, his supreme friendliness and joviality makes him more akin to Santa Claus than anything approaching imposing. He is the owner and proprietor of a small bakery on the outskirts of Chateaufaux, passed down from his father, and he is very proud of this small accomplishment achieved by his family. Alongside his wife, who he loves dearly, Guy has managed to keep his family in relative comfort, firmly placing them within the lower-middle class of the city. The rising price of grain has impacted his livelihood significantly, as he refuses to significantly raise his prices to accommodate this change. This, in concert with perhaps a bit excessive amount of charity to those in need (he is quite keen to give a free baguette to struggling persons), as made his family increasingly reliant on their son for relief, who supplements their income by sending home a portion of his weekly wage. Though he comes from humble beginnings, he and his wife raised Jacques to be a well-mannered, educated man. This, in turn, has placed some faint tension between the two, as Guy finds his son a bit pretentious and uptight in contrast to his direct and easygoing disposition. Nevertheless, the two cherish each other, and Guy writes Jacques frequently, inquiring on his well-being and current happenings, as well as playfully pestering him to find a wife and carry on the family line.


Spoiler: MOTHER • show

NPC Name: Diane Boucher (nee Nôtre)
Relation to PC: Mother
Location of NPC: Chateaufaux
Description of NPC:

Diane Boucher is a slight and diminutive figure beside her loving husband. A wisp of a woman, Diane is reserved, soft-spoken, and introspective, taking to observation and quiet contemplation rather than direct confrontation. She inherited this disposition from her own parents, who emigrated from Richemulot when she was in the womb under circumstances never explained to their dear child. At times she can come across as distant and even downright melancholy, but she has the heart of a poet, and writes feverishly. Perhaps this is what drew her to Guy, who met her in his father's bakery when she was just a young girl. The two children conspired to steal a honey cake from the shop, invoking the sharp consternation of both families, and have been inseperable since, and she is still quietly moved by the rowdy man's big heart. Despite her faint presence, she has shown to be quite adept at subtle affairs, using her sensitivity to others and a profound resourcefulness to find advantage in otherwise trepidatious situations. Perhaps this is why people say Jacques takes more after his mother, though the similarities in physical appearance should not be overlooked. She shares the same stark black hair, hers now streaked with silver threads of time's march, and sharp, angular features. The anxiety of current affairs is not lost on her, and she represents a more logical voice in Guy's decision-making, and more than once has she pressed him to react to the grain shortage with pragmatism, though she cannot bring herself to scold him for his charity, which she deeply admires.

"My soul is overflowing with obeisant reverence, and Your Most Illustrious Excellency of benignity, to you I most humbly bow." -Francesco Ferdinando Alfieri.
