All for one and one for all!
— The Musketeers' motto

The misnamed Three Musketeers were a group of four elite Musketeers of the Guard who lived during 17th century and tasked to defend and protect the French Monarchy. These individuals would become the inspiration behind one of the greatest historical fiction adventure books of all time: The Three Musketeers and its sequels. Although little is known about them, all of them came from nobility and strong military lineage. They were also noted for their skills in swordsmanship and warfare.

Three of them, Armand d'Athos, Isaac de Porthau, and Henri d'Aramitz were related to Comte de Troisville, a notable French officer at that time. He was also the one who called for the three to become musketeers based on their reputation in combat. Troisville would also be the one to introduce the most famous of all them all, Charles de Batz-Castelmore d'Artagnan to the elite regiment.
