Background

One of the bright lights of the early 20th Century, Guillaume Quelennec led an adventurous life in the French Territory of the Afars and Issas. His father, Felix, was the governor and after his mother died when he was five, Guillaume and his older sister Susan were able to grow up with very little adult supervision apart from a handful of servants. Even at this young age Guillaume was an explorer and often found himself in the bustling markets of Djibouti, haggling with camel traders and spending his father's money on sweets and trinkets.

Although Susan was older by two years, she was far from being the serious one and often found herself in trouble. Sometimes the trouble was awkward enough that it required a subtle rescue, and Guillaume took on the responsibility of rescuing his sister from such awkward moments. He enjoyed the secrecy and the excitement of sneaking into gambling halls and onto merchant vessels in search of Susan, something which would later lead to him taking on the role of Le Renard, a costumed adventurer.

But before he began his career as Le Renard, Guillaume tried his hand at trading and, more importantly, at exploring. During 1935, at the age of 23, he and his sister discovered the secret metropolis of Gorilla City. Although the city had experienced humans before they were still curious as to Guillaume and Susan's appearance and treated them as honoured guests. Guillaume wrote a short article on his adventures but it never achieved much success or recognition.

During his explorer days, Guillaume encountered a rival explorer (and exploiter), the Englishman Christopher Faulkner, aka The Hound. Guillaume enjoyed the games of cat and mouse that ensued so much, that he took on the role of Le Renard - the fox to Faulkner's hound. While Guillaume perceived the rivalry as mostly fun-filled adventure he inadvertently foiled many plots that the Hound was planning and thus became an accidental hero.

In 1938 Marcel Donati arrived in Djibouti. An Italian-French spy, Donati sabotaged the governor's position and led to Guillaume's father being sent back to France. Guillaume remained in Africa, although Susan was sent back to France as well, but he was forced to remain under house arrest by the Vichy government. During this time Guillaume continued his activities as Le Renard becoming a War Hero, although this was short lived. He lost interest and passion for resisting the government when he found himself falling in love with Penelope, a Vichy supporter, and the daughter of the new governor.

After the war he returned to Marseilles with Penelope where they married and started a family in 1948. They had two sons, Marcel and Jacques. Once back in France, Guillaume gave up his life as Le Renard, however, his grandson Francois Quelennec, who was born in 1972, would go on to become the second Le Renard and represent his country as a hero as well as a member of the Dawnstars. Tragedy followed, as the second Renard was killed by Motte and Bailey along with his two children, leaving behind a widow, Nefise.

Guillaume died in 2000, a year before his grandson, after suffering a series of cancer outbreaks. Marcel and Jacques still live in France. Marcel (father of Renard II) is a retired school teacher and Jacques is a part-time political journalist.

Personality
Guillaume Quelennec never really thought about his actions apart from their immediate consequences. He would run into a gambling hall full of cut throats and thieves without a second thought, just to rescue his sister from the attentions of a seedy pirate. He would recover stolen jewels without thought of reward. In short, Le Renard was a man who lived a carefree life in a golden age.

After the Second World War he settled down and never regretted leaving behind his identity of Le Renard. He became a devoted father and grandfather, a caring husband and charitable businessman. No one suspected the adventures he had experienced in Africa except his sister Susan and his grandchildren who were all privy to his stories as he watched them grow up.
Quote
"Fantastique! I never knew a diamond could be that big!"
Powers

Although Le Renard had no superhuman powers, he was extremely lucky and managed to escape injury and death on more times than would seem humanly possible. He possessed peak human attributes and seemed to be the very epitome of the human condition. While he was proficient in using firearms, he preferred to use his hands in a carefree manner, striking out with glee at those who he saw as 'the bad guys'. He was also renowned for his remarkable choke hold which could render even a strong man unconscious in seconds.

Appearance

Guillaume was a handsome, athletic and affable man. He was larger than life and always smiling and upbeat. He would normally wear khakis, but when the situation required it he would don a costume for covert activities. As Le Renard he wore a skintight reddish brown costume with black boots, gloves and a domino mask.

As he grew older he maintained his husky physique and boyish good looks.
