In his library the Duke de Padirac is thumbing through his copy of the memories of the Marshall de Saxe . The well thumbed copy has been carefully anotated by the Duc and, in the margins diagrams abound.
The Duc is considering what part of the legion to raise next and is looking for uniform inspiration from his friend L'abbe Volarii who will be the Legion's chaplin. Volarii has attached himself to the Ducal household of De Padirac as private chaplain and tutor to the Ducal triplets . The Duchess de Padirac is drawing the designs for the uniforms and currently is engaged in embroidering the legion's banner with symbols fitting to her husband's interest and pursuits.
