C ———, Antoine, Comte de

   In “The Alchemist,” the last of a long line of comtes, each of whom suffers a mysterious death prior to the age of thirty-two—the age of Henri, Comte de C ———, when, in the thirteenth century, he blamed Michel Mauvais, a wizard residing on his estates, for the disappearance of his son Godfrey. Later Godfrey is found alive, but in the meantime Henri has killed Michel. Michel’s son, Charles Le Sorcier, pronounces a curse that appears to affect all the Comtes de C ———, including Godfrey’s son Robert and Robert’s son Louis.
