Once a bureaucrat in the civil service of Glantri City, Richard Loubeau found that certain ill-chosen alterations he had made to the flow of capital through his office had drawn unwelcome attention from his superiors. He thought it wise to make himself scarce for a time. Recalling the great wealth said to lie in the ruins of Chateau d'Ambreville, he set out to explore the place and perhaps acquire some measure of funds. Once inside, he encountered the Company of Crossed Swords, whose numbers he swiftly joined.

His life since has careened between temporary luxury and poverty, scholarly pursuits and professional frustration, good-natured jocularity and suffocating cynicism; in short, the life of an adventurer. Loubeau once relentlessly needled those who follow too fervently law or chaos, but the arc of his adventuring career has led him to the altar of Trianoma. Regarding his untrained and untrainable touch with the arcane as a sign from the Thrice-Blessed Lady, he has surrendered himself to her service.
