Baron Jaques de Beaumarchais was a Bretonnian Lord and brother-in-law to the famed Agravain de Beau Quest. Once a simple shepard, Jaques would become one of the three peasants to ever be granted knighthhood.

History

Unlike most peasants of Bretonnia, Jaques was a handsome and strong man, he had long drawn the attention of the Lady Isabelle of Beaumarchais. When his flock and village came under attack from Orcs Jaques took up arms and slaughtered the brutes, the peasants saw him as hero and Isabelle granted him knighthood for his deeds. Now a Knight Errant of Bretoonia, Jaques was called by Isabelle after the tragic news that her father had died in battle. Isabelle's brother however, was also a knight errant and thus unable to succeed his late father. The noble lady saw this as a chance for Jaques to marry her and rule the lands of Beaumarchais. She set a quest for both knights, whoever slew the ferocious Dragon, Drogo le Mal would become Baron.

Jaques respected Agravain greatly, likewise Agravain saw that whilst Jaques was once a lowly peasant, he was brave and worthy of rulership. The two knights rode out to Drogo's lair and were beset by the massive beast, as Drogo atempted to breathe fire upon them, Agravain tore his lance through the beasts throat. Jaques then speared his lance directly into the monsters heart, felling the beast. Both knights insisted that it was the other who had dealt a mortal blow, too chivalrous and respectful of eachother to claim the kill

Jaques and his rival returned to Beaumarchais, where the Lady Isabelle used her rights to declare Jaques the winner. Agravain was honour bound to serve Jaques, but the new Baron had to much admiration for him. Jaques declared that Agravain was free of bondship and could ride to Couronne, where the king was sure to reward such a valiant knight who had helped slay a Dragon!
