The gamer will encounter both historical and fictional characters. The principal fictional character is Henri, a 17-year old, adventurous young man from a modest family living in an agricultural area about 5 km from the City. Henri’s father perished in 1658, one year before the Pyrenees Treaty. Henri is in love with Marguerite who is expecting his baby. Our protagonist is an upstanding young man and wishes to take responsibility for Marguerite and their child. He will do this by giving Marguerite a ring. At this time, the gift of a ring is a legally binding commitment to marry. Henri cannot afford to purchase a ring. However, he believes that his mother has a valuable ring that his father had found years ago while plowing a field, which was the property of the Cassal family. Henri asks his mother for the ring. Tearfully, she reveals that she has given it to Jacques Ignace Cassal as payment of the fee she owed him as landowner. Because of her husband’s death and the devastated condition of the agricultural land, she had no alternative but to give the ring to Cassal. Henri decides to try to recover the ring. Accordingly, he travels to the City arriving on the day of the incidents provoked by Jacques Ignace Cassal.
