Remy joined the SCA in 2010 as a way to live out his love for all things swashbuckling. Since then, he's taken to studying period fencing techniques, learned to sew his own fencing armor and court garb, silk banner making, and leather working. He enjoys learning new things and will never say no to someone who wants to drill with him.


Maréchal Remy Delamontagne de Gascogne is a low-rank noble from Gascony, who earned his way into the nobility via his military career (noblesse militaire). Like many young Gascon men, he picked up the sword at a young age, and turned to the army to make his fame and fortune.

While in the East Kingdom, he has studied the noble art of the rapier -- studying fencing masters such as Alfieri, Fabris and Capoferro. He's also taken to the military arts, training the tyger troops of the East and leading them into glorious battle. He actively studies period warfare techniques from ancient Greece through the early-modern era. He now captains the Carolingian Caliver Company, was a former battle marshal, and retired-Marshal General of the East Kingdom Rapier Army.

Persona inspiration includes Jean, Comte de Gassion and Henri de La Tour d'Auvergne, Viscount of Turenne.
