Born in 1730, as the third son of a wealthy importer of spices, Chrétien Lafrenière was destined for the Church. He studied at the Sorbonne and entered seminary school in 1750, but when his father and elder siblings died in a shipwreck off the coast of Mauritius, he left the seminary to take the reins of his family's business. Most of his income, however, seems to have been spent joining and founding numerous secret societies and fringe religious groups. By the time of the Revolution he was living in hiding, likely from creditors.*
* Still. He probably had lots of lovely membership cards and newsletters to read from all those wonderful societies he blew his money on.
He was killed (possibly sacrificed) during a Satanic Black Mass in the Cimitière des Innocents in late March of 1791.**

Still, you have to admire the Templars' revisionist streak here. If you're not with us, you're a reprobate devil-worshipper. History is written by the victors, after all, and in this case the victors are utter bastards.
