Michel du Guesclin was a planter from the French-speaking region of Atlantis. He joined the Atlantean Assembly at the outset of the Atlantean War of Independence (much to the relief of the English speakers, who feared that the French Atlanteans might not stand united with them against England).
Du Guesclin joined the delegation that convinced Victor Radcliff to take command of the Army of the Atlantean Assembly. As Radcliff had made war on the French Atlanteans a dozen years before, this faith counted for a great deal.
Du Guesclin was distantly related to François Kersauzon, the probable discoverer of Atlantis in the 15th, and Roland Kersauzon, an officer of the losing army in the previous war. A devout Catholic, du Guesclin abhorred the seemingly atheistic philosophy of Voltaire.
