Set on the streets of 17th-century Paris where law and order is more an idea than reality, the series follows Musketeers Athos, Aramis and Porthos who are far more than King Louis XIII’s personal bodyguards, but ultimately stand resolutely for social justice: for honour, for valour, for love and for the thrill of it
Aramis is handsome, a loner by nature but a faithful friend. He's a complex figure. His love of women is notorious but he is very far from being a routine womaniser. His effortless charm means that he is never short of admirers – not even the Cardinal’s mistress is off-limits, with deadly consequences. A brilliant shot, Aramis has a ruthless streak but also the most romantic heart of the Musketeer brotherhood. He possesses a deep insight into human nature and puts his faith in a deity who understands and forgives its many contradictions.

Aramis: My parents always hoped I ended up in a place like this.

Aramis: [chuckles] A priest!
Athos: Why didn't you?
Aramis: [walks swiftly to the window with a pistol] 'Cause I found out I was better at dispatching people to hell! [shoots]

Athos: If you told us what you're doing, we might've been able to plan this properly.
Aramis: Yes, sorry.
Athos: No-no, let's keep it suicidal.
