Guillaume is a powerful witch living in France who occasionally accepts exceptional students, like Lucie Bellerose. Lucie spent a long year in France living with and studying under the “strict disciplinarian” prior to her first appearance in Through the Door (book 2 in the Door to Door Paranormal Mystery Series). He is a frightening force to be reckoned with and the Congress of Empire Witches often looks the other way with regards to his “teaching methods” because he produces “desirable outcomes.”
He’d changed little since I last saw him. His ash brown hair had a touch of additional gray, but it was still thick and combed back from his face in gentle waves. His eyebrows retained their full color, and the right one remained raised while he regarded my dress. The laugh lines at the corners of his eyes implied a sense of humor – a misleading facial feature. Guillaume’s square chin was covered with its perpetual stubble where the majority of gray made its appearance. The lips of his wide mouth were pressed together. I heard him breathe in through his aquiline nose as he prepared to speak.
Guillaume cut a nice shape in his tux. At 56, he was more fit than many men half his age. He maintained his body with a control only mastered by such a strict disciplinarian. He earned his share of appreciative glances from the witches around us.
Guillaume in Doors Wide Open
In an argument between Lucie and Templeton in Doors Wide Open (the third book in the Door to Door Paranormal Mystery series), the reader learns Lucie traded something of importance – something that will likely land her in hot water with Guillaume:
Templeton didn’t acknowledge Rabbit. Instead, he addressed Lucie. “When the Congress of Empire Witches learns of this, you will be punished.” Templeton spit out the last four words.
“Lucie? What is he talking about?” Rabbit’s nose twitched.
Lucie muttered something about expecting a simple life in Matar. She glared at Templeton. “Guillaume gave it to me. Directly. If you know what it is, Templeton, then you know who he is. The Congress is the least of my concerns. I’d appreciate it if you kept this to yourself.”
Rabbit mentioned the same name when we were at the Tortoise’s cabin. “Who is this Guillaume?” I asked. No one answered and Rabbit gave me a nudge.
“And you don’t think he’ll find out?” Templeton was incredulous. His hands landed on the countertop across from her and he leaned angrily toward Lucie. “I can’t believe you’d do something so foolish.”
“I’ll deal with him when he does,” Lucie snapped at him.
