Quick Biography

Armand's older sister Marguerite marries an English aristocrat Sir Percy Blakeney, and he accompanies her to England for her wedding. When Percy discovers that his friend, the Marquis de St. Cyr has been executed (and that his new wife is responsible for it), he rallies his friends to rescue the suffering innocents in France. Armand overhears the plans and gets caught up in activities of the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel. For the next few months, Percy, his friends, and Armand are constantly traveling between England and France on their missions.

When a lonely Marguerite complains of their absences to Armand, he vehemently defends Percy's honor and good character, despite Marguerite's protestations that Percy has grown distant and flippant to her. When Chauvelin requests Marguerite's help in tracking down the Scarlet Pimpernel, she refuses. Armand undertakes another mission to France to return Marie to Paris so she may look for her missing fiance and do some work to assist the League. Marguerite does not want him to go, but he promises he will be safe.


Armand is arrested in France, and Chauvelin uses this to force Marguerite to identify the Pimpernel through questioning Percy's friends at the Prince's Ball. A meeting is arranged at the footbridge, but Marguerite goes early to warn the Pimpernel away and beg him to help her brother, who is surely being tortured by the French to reveal the identity of the Pimpernel. The Pimpernel gives orders to his men and uses his foppish disguise to escape Chauvelin's suspicions.

Unsure whether her pleas will save her brother, Marguerite goes to France in disguise to find him herself. Chauvelin recognizes her and takes to her to see Armand, who has been denying Chauvelin and his men the information they seek. Marguerite promises to get the information but when she thinks they are alone, she reveals her plan to Armand that they escape back to England. Chauvelin overhears and orders them both to be executed. He arranges for a false rescue from the scaffold assuming that Armand would run straight to the Pimpernel, which he does. On the way, he accidentally tells Marguerite that Percy is the Pimpernel.

When they arrive in Michelon, Chauvelin taunts Armand for his foolish act, and duels with Percy. When he wins, he sends Marguerite and Armand off to be beheaded. When he also orders the Pimpernel guillotined, Percy calls his bluff and reveals the trap he'd planned to catch the wily Frenchman. Chauvelin is left with evidence pointing to him as the Pimpernel, and everyone else goes home to England.

Armand is short with long, dark brown hair that he usually keeps tied back in a hair ribbon. His eyes are blue. He's gotten a reputation now for being slightly rumpled and untidy, especially if compared to the other Armand, who is so fastidious. Maybe his new clothes from Favrielle will help.
