Known Information

Recently inherited the Barony after both his father, and his older brother died suddenly, Gauge is a former Privateer who has had the Barony thrust upon him. While a skilled Captain and fighter running a Barony is new to him and there are those who watch intently to see if he will sink or swim.


The second son of Jean-Luc d'Erresse and Fantine Valais d'Eresse, Gauge had the freedom to stretch his wings and do a lot that his older brother Bertram couldn't do from a very young age. There is a freedom to being the spare, and while he was tutored at least marginally in how to manage the Holdings it was never a priority for him. As the second son it was more than likely he would be married off and thus become someone else's problem. Which was a fine thing as far as his parents were concerned. Even as a child Gauge was a rapscallion, constantly getting in trouble for his adventures but his natural charm got him out of a lot of problems he might otherwise have had, and thus he got away with murder running roughshod over the house.

As he grew older Gauge fortunately developed a love for the sea. This was a boon as he began to direct his energies to learning how to sail, to chart courses, and of course, to fight. He began to develop his natural charm into true leadership skills, using his force of personality to keep those under him in line. It wasn't long before he rose to the rank of Captain of the Silverback and acquired a Lettre de Marque which allowed him to hunt down enemies of Eisande and to protect the families holdings. He came to love the life, the thrill of the hunt, the danger, and the bloodshed. There was nothing more thrilling than fighting for ones life and being the one who won. Over the years he became /very/ good at staying alive through skill at arms, intimidation, and listening to people smarter than him who he trusted.

Every time he returned to Marsilikos it was always an event, and though he was good at his job it was always a pressure on his family. The bills and incidents that Gauge raised were always note-worthy but he never quite made it to the point that he was more trouble than he was worse. He came close several times, but never quite there. When he was about to go full time pirate Gauge received word that his father and his older brother had died but he didn't know how. Unfortunately that meant his Privateering days are over and he had to return to Marsilikos. Now the second son, the spare, was the Baron de Beaucare. May Eisheth save them all.
