Concept Art - Julien du Casse

Julien du Casse was the nephew of the buccaneer Jean du Casse and followed his uncle's example by taking to the sea at an early age. Although he fought in a few battles in the War of the Spanish Succession on behalf of King Philip, he rapidly grew disillusioned with the Monarchy and their obsession with lineage and breeding.

Julien sought his fortunes in the New World. At first he worked for slave traders in Africa, but was uncomfortable with the cruelty of the profession, and so he departed for the West Indies in search of another vocation.

Julien worked for 10 years as a mercenary for anyone who could pay and eventually landed a permanent position with Templar Grand Master Laureano Torres y Ayala.
