In Joan of Arc's epic, some characters were indispensable for the success of her mission. Some were her devoted companions from the first day, such Jean de Metz and Bertrand de Poulengy, to whom Robert de Baudricourt entrusted "the Maid's" safe journey from Vaucouleurs to Chinon. Others were the members of Joan's military household such as her squire, Jean d'Aulon, and her Page, Louis de Coutes. The brave defenders of Orleans, the Bastard of Orleans (later Count of Dunois) and the Governor, Raoul de Gaucourt were among her friends. Then there were the royal army's commanders: Jean de Brosse, called the Marshall of Boussac and Sainte-Sévère, and his lieutenant Louis de Culant, Admiral of France. Also devoted to Joan were Xaintrailles, La Hire, the "good duke" Jean d'Alençon, the depraved man, Gilles de Rais, and finally the Constable of France, Arthur Earl of Richmond, who disgraced by the king, nonetheless quickly came to Joan's side to fight the enemies of the realm.
