Monique Dutourd (b. 1929) was a professor of Roman history. She was born and raised in Marseille, France. When she was 11, Germany invaded France, and attached Marseille to the puppet government centered in Vichy. When the Race invaded Earth in 1942, Vichy France was effectively occupied by the Lizards, until the Peace of Cairo returned the whole of France to German control. Thus, Monique grew up as a subject of the Greater German Reich.
When the Race's Colonization Fleet arrived, Monique was teaching Roman history in the University of Marseille. She was contacted by a SS officer named Dieter Kuhn, who wanted to contact her brother Pierre Dutourd, a notorious ginger smuggler, through her. Kuhn also used his influence as an SS officer to force Monique Dutourd to become his mistress. When she decided that she could not stand the German any longer, she was able to go into hiding with the help of her brother, though in the process she had to give up her university position.
She was still in hiding with her brother when the war between the Race and Germany began. She and her brother survived the Race's explosive-metal bomb attack on Marseille, but the aftermath was very difficult, as food was scarce and the Reichsmark was badly weakend. After the war, in the reconstituted Fourth French Republic, she was brought in for questioning by the government because of her previous sexual relationship with Kuhn. Her brother Pierre used his influence with the Race to secure her release. Later Rance Auerbach was able to get her a position at a university in Tours.
