A couple of notes on this week’s episode: Omnis Omnibus means “all everyone” in Latin.

Also, the second portion of the book is called “The Buskin”. Now, you costumers might know a buskin to be a laced boot reaching halfway or more to the knee, and you’d be right. However, there is a second meaning which is in reference to tragedy – especially a tragedy in the Greek drama tradition. This latter definition is the one Sabatini references.

So here’s the story so far:

Andre-Louis, a privileged lawyer from Gavrillac, is on a mission to speak out for the downtrodden, especially the poor who have fewer rights than the nobles. Beginning with the deaths of Mabey, then his friend Phillipe, and finally the two protesters that were killed at Rennes during a demonstration, Andre-Louis has become the person chosen to deliver the message of defiance from Rennes to the town of Nantes. This is where we begin today.
