Comte de Wardes
An agent of the Cardinal. He is almost able to stop D’Artagnan from traveling to England and getting the studs, but D’Artagnan wounds him three times in a sword fight. D’Artagnan thinks highly of this man as a gentleman who, in different circumstances, he might befriend, but we never see or hear of the Comte again. Later D’Artagnan borrows his identity in order to seduce Milady.
