Beauregard is a human monk of The Cobalt Soul. She is played by Marisha Ray.

Description Edit

Appearance Edit

Beauregard Official byArianaOrner

Official full body portrait of Beauregard, by Ari.[art 2]

Beau wears baggy clothes and monk vestments in shades of blue and gray. She has a blue sash around her belt, that has embroidered[9] script from the Cobalt Soul written on the interior in the backside.[10] Her hair is shaved into an undercut. She also customized her coat so she can turn it inside out, having it cobalt blue on one side and a normal brown on the other.

Personality Edit

Beau is a simple girl with simple needs. She is not an egomaniac and she demands that credit be given to the group as a whole. She regards those she doesn't know with suspicion and continues to press for straight answers whenever someone tries to deflect a question she's asked. Beau's attitude towards other people can be summed up as "do whatever you want, but if it fucks with my shit we're going to have issues."[11]

Beau has been shown to have few concerns when it comes to violence, having demonstrated a willingness and, occasionally, an eagerness to harm others if it serves her interests. This aggressive attitude is one of the reasons she was so at odds with mentors within the Cobalt Soul[12], as well as her general dislike of authority figures.[13] This attitude has extended to other party members who tried to commandeer a situation.[14]

C2E16 Beau smile

Fan art of Beau smiling, by Elaine Tipping.[art 3]

Beau is particularly bad at interacting with people in a positive manner, frequently coming off as insulting when she tries to give compliments[15] or straining credulity when she attempts to be polite. In order to improve her lacking social skills, Fjord suggested that she smile more. However, due to Beau's normally hostile personality, her smiles tend to come off as either unsettling or extremely disingenuous.[16] However, Beau is also deceptively shrewd and good at keeping secrets. She has strategically chosen to reveal her allegiance to The Cobalt Soul when it benefits her or helps the Mighty Nein out of a difficult situation.[17][18] She has proven to be a good negotiator when she makes the effort to be.[19] She is also, despite her demeanor, an intelligent individual with sharp deductive reasoning, taking her time (usually to herself) to piece together details about past and present events and is much more knowledgeable about certain parts of history and the like (a testament to her Cobalt Soul training), even if she often downplays it as "just something she learned while doing so-and-so".

However, underneath all of her negative aspects, Beau has also been proven to be capable of positive growth and maturity as she has become far more empathetic and patient (though still not to the extent of her mentor) over time. She has in fact been one of the first of the Mighty Nein to come out of her shell and consider herself a true friend to them, seeing them as a family and saying she would lay down her life for them.[20] She's also taken Molly's credo of "Make every place better than you found it" to heart and tries to adhere to it, with mixed results. She still has her moments of clashing with her companions, but it's mostly friendly ribbing.

Beau has gained the meta nickname "The Disaster Lesbian"[21] due to her often flirty demeanor towards women but infrequent success. Notably, she called Expositor Dairon "very attractive" as soon as she saw the elf without her concealing cloak, and she makes near constant advances on Yasha. Beauregard's hiring of a female courtesan at The Landlocked Lady in "Converging Fury" (2x27) and her sleeping with Keg in "The Stalking Nightmare" (2x29) showcase her attraction to the same sex.

Biography Edit

Background Edit

Beauregard's parents were in the wine-making business in Kamordah. Beau was made to manage the bookkeeping. As the winery's most frequent customers were halflings, Beau learned the Halfling language as a result.[22]

She mentioned to Bo "The Breaker" that her name was Beauregard because her parents wanted a son.[23]

Beau thought little of her father as she grew up and, possibly out of a need for revenge, began to steal and resell his wine at cost. This lead to her committing other crimes, including extortion and trafficking. While playing a game of chance with Molly, Beau revealed the the best lie she ever told was when, not liking a politician and his wife in the town she grew up in, she worked as a house hand for them as a means to dig up dirt on them. She found out that they were each cheating on each other, causing them to break up when she exposed the information.[24]

One day her father found out about her bootlegging and criminal activity and hired a group of monks from the Cobalt Reserve to "abduct" Beau, believing that they would reform her. It is implied that Beau's father thought that the monks were strictly librarians, however they were also martial artists and attempted to teach Beau the discipline her father wanted while also training her in hand-to-hand combat. As seen throughout the campaign, only one of these lessons stuck.

Beau left the monastary in Zadash after her parents sent her a letter saying they now had a son. Beau took the letter to mean her parents no longer wanted any contact with her.[25] She assumed they were no longer going to pay the Cobalt Soul to train her and thought she would be doing the monks a favor by leaving.[26]

Pre-Stream Edit

Traveling along the Amber Road, Beau met Jester and Fjord already traveling together and joined them about a day before meeting the rest of the group.[27] On their way to study magic at the Soltryce Academy in Rexxentrum, the trio saved the daughter of Rinaldo (a fisherman in Trostenwald) from a giant snake. They also did a job involving moving boxes for the Bambauch family. Something happened during the job that caused Beau to form a grudge against them.

Chapter 9 Edit

"Disparate Pieces" (2x04) Edit

Beau accepted the Way of the Cobalt Soul as her monastic tradition during a single-player RP session during "Disparate Pieces" (2x04). Specifically, under the guidance of Expositor Dairon, she came to see the appeal of becoming a member of "The Expositors" a secret order within the Cobalt Soul tasked with "...pursuing the secrets and evils of the world and exposing them to the light." [28] The next morning, Fjord questioned Beau about the bruises she sustained from the training session. Beau told the Mighty Nein she had been accepted to a secret order of monks the morning after her first meeting with Dairon. However she spoke in a sarcastic manner and the party did not appear to take her seriously.[citation needed]

Beau goes along to the courier service when Jester sends her mother a letter. While there, Beau convinces the courier to give her three packages intended for the Baumbachs.[29]

Chapter 10 Edit

"A Favor in Kind" (2x16) Edit

Beau trained with Dairon in Zadash, while reporting some of her adventures between Trostenwald and Zadash. She also specifically described the group's encounter with the Xhorhasian spy and his description of the dodecahedron, though she omitted the fact that the Nein had stolen the dodecahedron.

Chapter 11 Edit

"Found & Lost" (2x26)Edit

Beau began shouting at Keg instantly upon meeting her, demanding to know who she was and what she was doing. As the remaining members of the Mighty Nein and Keg realized they had a common enemy in the Iron Shepherds, Beau apologized. Beau told Keg she is trying to work on the "manners thing".[30] Soon after she began to flirt with Keg.[31]

While on watch with Molly, Beau stated that she hated his tarot cards.[32]

"Converging Fury" (2x27)Edit

After his death, when the Mighty Nein buried him along the Glory Run Road, she chose to keep Molly's fortune-telling cards as a memento of him. She also claimed his Periapt of Wound Closure, the Summer's Dance blade, and his gold, with the intention of using it for his resurrection.[33] The party buried Molly along the side of the road. Beau poured out a drink for Molly and the party toasted: "Long may he reign."

"The Journey Home" (2x30)Edit

Beau broke the news of Molly's death to Fjord and Jester. She told them she would have died to save them as well and believes one of them should have Molly's sword. Fjord said he would be honored.[34] After looting the Sour Nest, Beau and Keg went off alone together. Keg tried to sneak out quietly afterwards. Beau noticed her leaving but pretended to still be asleep. In the morning, she found that Keg had left her a goodbye letter, sort of. Keg started to write, but then crossed everything out and just wrote "Thanks".[35]

Beau convinced Ophelia Mardun to let the Mighty Nein keep Lorenzo's glaive in memory of Molly. Ophelia agreed, but told Beau to consider it a favor and remember it.

While they are alone during the journey back to Zadash, Caleb asked Beau to tell him more about her. Beau told him about her father sending her to The Cobalt Soul against her wishes. She told running away got her a promotion in rank, without specifically mentioning the Expositors or Dairon.

My whole life was dictated by establishment that I didn't have a lot of control over, and The Cobalt Soul has this underlying faction that helps uproot corrupt establishment. I know, I scoffed at the idea of being a part of a system that's supposed to take down systems. It doesn't really make sense, but uh . . . you know. Maybe you, if anyone, can understand the idea of fighting fire with fire. That's why I'm doing this.
– 
Beau explains her allegiance to The Cobalt Soul to Caleb[36]

Beau showed concern for how Fjord and Jester were handling the trauma of being kidnapped, telling Fjord multiple times not to blame himself. After the party received their payment from The Gentleman and left the Evening Nip, Beau set off several cherry bombs in honor of Molly.

"Encroaching Waters" (2x34)Edit

Beau Traci by Amy King

Fan art of Beauregard and her alter ego, "Traci", by Amy King.[art 4]

During the Mighty Nein's stay in Nicodranas on the Menagerie Coast, Beauregard adopted a flirtatious false persona that she named "Tracy" to attempt to get information out of a Zelezo guard named Merpal. She claimed to be the daughter of a rich family in Zadash on vacation to Nicodranas.[37] Beau's reaction to Tracy's appearance was one of confusion and fear.

Chapter 12 Edit

Beauregard, along with the rest of the Mighty Nein, joined the crew of the Squall-Eater under Captain Avantika. She gave the alias "Tracy" to Avantika when asked for her name. "Tracy" took on the role of the apprentice cooper during their time aboard the Squall-Eater.[38] She has expressed interest in and desire for Captain Avantika.[38]

When the Squall-Eater arrived at Darktow Isle, Beauregard was automatically initiated as a member of the Revelry.[38] After she was introduced to Plank King Wyatt Marinos, he pulled her aside from the rest of the party and asked her to give him information on Avantika. Her immediate reaction was to ask "how much?"[38]

"In Hot Water" (2x43)Edit

During the fight on the deck of the Squall-Eater, Jester grabbed Beau and cast Dimension Door to get them off from the ship with Avantika's journal. Beau took the journal and rushed towards the Throne Roost to negotiate with the Plank King. She piqued his interest by telling him she has proof of Avantika planning a coup to overthrow him. Once the fight was over, the Mighty Nein and Avantika were brought to the Plank King for a trial. During the trial, Beau revealed herself to be a member of the Expositors, the first time any of the Mighty Nein have heard that name. Previously only Nott and Caleb knew Beau had a connection to the Cobalt Soul.

Beau claimed her allegiance was solely to the Cobalt Soul and separate from the rest of the Mighty Nein. The Plank King seemed to be fooled by this deception, but Caleb read it to be a partial truth.[39] Beau's connection to the Cobalt Soul seemed to win her some more trust with the Plank King. Fjord persuaded him to allow Beau to use the Extract Truth ability on Avantika. When Beau was able to successfully prevent her from telling a lie, Avantika refused to speak at all. The Plank King took her silence as proof she did in fact plan to overthrow him. He judged Avantika guilty and snapped her neck. As a reward for uncovering a plot against him, the Plank King did not kill the Mighty Nein. He seized their ship and banished them from Darktow Isle. They were ordered to leave immediately on the damaged Squall Eater. The Plank King told Beau to send his regards to the Archive.

"The Diver's Grave" (2x44)Edit

Beau dove underwater with the rest of the Mighty Nein to the wreckage of the Tide's Breath and Dashilla the Dreadful's lair. She was briefly possessed by a ghost[40] then later punched another ghost.[41]

"The Stowaway" (2x45)Edit

Beau, Jester, and Nott found Twiggy hiding in the cargo hold of the Squall Eater. Apart from the rest of the group, Beau and Fjord agreed that they were suspicious of Twiggy. They thought she was too sweet and there had to be something else going on with her. Beau also said she thinks Twiggy's illusion magic is unnerving.[42] Beau asked Fjord to train her to be first mate since he is officially captain. Fjord agreed.[43]

Beau was teleported with the rest of the Mighty Nein (minus Yasha) and Twiggy into Halas's extraplanar manor. When Fjord got pulled through the portal in the stained glass window, Beau ignored the rest of the room and focused on the window trying to find him. Beau found a fingerprint in the window left by Fjord and touched it. She accidentally pulled Jester with her into the window's portal since Jester was standing right next to her at the time. During the battle with the blue dragon, Beau used her red gem to summon a fire elemental, distracting the dragon while the party looked for a way out.[44] Beau was the first to find the exit,[45] but did not realize touching the orb would transport her away from the fight instantly. After the rest of the party escaped the dragon's lair and got back to the ship, Beau noticed Jester was visibly upset and tried to talk to her about it. Jester lied and said she was fine.

Later when they were alone, Beau asked Caduceus if it was wrong of her to feel ok when everyone else felt so badly about how close to death they were while fighting the dragon. Caduceus told her it was fine. It would just be their job to comfort the group.[46]

Chapter 13Edit

"Homeward Bound" (2x48)Edit

Back in Nicodranas, the Mighty Nein tried again to get into the mysterious mage tower. Caduceus convinced Yussah Errenis they had valuable information for him. The mage invited Caduceus plus one companion of his choice to enter the tower. Caduceus chose Beau. Beau asked Caleb if he would lend her Frumpkin to bring inside with her. Caleb angrily asked her why. Beau walked inside the tower without answering. Once inside, Beau told the mage about the attack on the towers in Zadash and Uk'otoa.

We all know corruption runs rampant in both the Empire and the Clovis Concord. I don't want anything to do with that...I just want the truth.
– 
Beau convinces Yussah Errenis to form an alliance with the Mighty Nein[47]

They are looking for allies who can help them understand the two powerful artifacts they're carrying- the dodecahedron and the Happy Fun Ball of Tricks. She told him that the Mighty Nein were not aligned with any political powers; they were just interested in the truth. This assurance from Beau convinced him to let the rest of the party into the tower. The Mighty Nein formed an alliance with Yussah, giving him the Happy Fun Ball of Tricks in exchange for safe haven with him in Nicodranas and allowing Caleb to memorize the sigil of his teleportation circle. Once outside, Caduceus complimented Beau on her negotiation skills and for being mostly honest with Yussah. Beau became frustrated when Caleb was skeptical that she told the truth.

The Mighty Nein left Nicodranas for Felderwin. During the journey, Beau asked Jester to cast a Sending spell to Dairon for her. She told Jester that Dairon is a former roommate of hers. Beau was honest that she is worried about Dairon having gone to Bladegarden but implied that she and Dairon have slept together.[48] Dairon responded to Jester's spell that she is safe and recovering in Bladegarden. Beau thanked Jester, telling her that was "a big deal."[49]

One night, Caleb pulled Beau aside to apologize for being rude to her at the Tidepeak tower. He explained that he felt very nervous because Yussah Errenis is powerful enough to find them again any time he wants. Caleb wants to stay with the Mighty Nein, but he cannot keep taking unnecessary risks. Caleb admitted he is constantly worried anything he does will lead to Trent Ikithon finding him. Beau told him the Mighty Nein are his friends and will protect him. Caleb became frustrated and told Beau that all of them will die if Trent finds him. Beau became frustrated as well. She thought she did a good job negotiating with Yussah and thought Caleb would be excited to meet a powerful mage. Caleb wandered away from Beau.[50]

In Felderwin, the Mighty Nein learned Nott's friend Yeza Brenatto had been kidnapped. They discovered evidence that Yeza had been working with the Cerberus Assembly. Nott angrily shouted at Caleb that it was his people who had hurt her friend. Beau tried to stop Nott from talking about Caleb's secrets, but Nott was too angry to care.

"A Game of Names" (2x49)Edit

Caleb revealed more of his past to the Mighty Nein. Beau had already known of Caleb's connection to the Cerberus Assembly and Trent Ikithon; but she had not known "Caleb Widogast" was an alias nor that he was part of human experiments at the Soltryce Academy. When Caleb walked away from the group after telling his story, Beau went after him and asked him not to leave. She asked him to trust that the group could figure the situation out together.

"Xhorhas" (2x51)Edit

After the battle with the Kryn Dynasty war mage, Beau asked the Muck Men to bring a note to Dairon in Bladegarden. In a tense moment hiding from a roc, Beau prayed to The Knowing Mistress. This was the first time she showed any signs of faith.[51]

"Feral Business" (2x52)Edit

The Mighty Nein entered Asarius. Beau was disguised as a red male tiefling by Caleb's Polymorph spell.

"Cornered" (2x53)Edit

Beau and Jester entered a fight at the Four Corners tavern. During the fight, she noticed that the drow woman had a similar fighting style to her own.

"Well Beneath" (2x54)Edit

Dairon by Nguyen Minh Hieu

Fan art of Dairon, by Nguyen Minh Hieu.[art 5]

Beau introduced Dairon to the rest of the Mighty Nein. Dairon told the party she is in Xhorhas investigating a possible connection between the Cerberus Assembly and the Kryn Dynasty. Beau told Dairon they are looking for a friend's husband but did not name Yeza Brenatto or mention the Beacon. After Beau's warning that the Kryn know there is a spy, Dairon said she was heading to Ghor Dranas next; but she will not go with the Mighty Nein or help them get there. Once alone with Beau, Dairon warned Beau about getting too close to the group and told her she still needs to learn patience.[52]

While the Mighty Nein investigated for the source of the Abyssal rifts, Beau convinced a Kryn guard she was from the same place as Yasha and that the Mighty Nein's milling around a well was not suspicious.[53] As everyone else was taking a long rest, Beau met Dairon again for more training.[54] Beau gave Dairon a copy of Avantika's cipher so the two of them could write coded messages to each other using it. Dairon left Beau with the parting instructions "Listen", "Be Patient", and "Stay Alive".[55]

During the battle with the fiends inside Umadon's house, Beau used her new training to learn their resistances.[56]

Relationships Edit

Archivist Xenoth Edit

Beauregard's father paid him to take her in, teach and train her in the disciplines and lifestyle of Cobalt Soul monkhood and the ways of the Knowing Mistress. Beau does not seem to have respected him or his authority during the time he was her teacher.[57]

Caduceus ClayEdit

Beau is impressed by Caduceus's calming presence and ability to remain calm under pressure.

Caleb Widogast Edit

Caleb was very impressed with Beau and her physical fitness. He credited the success of Jester, Beau, and Fjord against the giant snake to her "guns".

Seeing his desire to enter the Archive of the Cobalt Soul, she confided in him that she was a member of the library, showing him the script she had hidden within her belt denoting her membership.[58] On the condition that he tell her about his past and why he was afraid of fire, she promised to take him to the library.[59] She later kept to her promise and accompanied him to the Archive.
Caleb an Beau

Fan art of Caleb and Beau reconciling, by Hugo Cardenas.[art 6]


Beau and Caleb continue to have profound personal growth. Possessing something of a sibling-like relationship, Beau will usually go to Caleb first if she has a problem. Likewise, Beau is one of only two people that Caleb has shared his past with. This usually stems from being labeled as the "Empire Kids" seeing as they're the only two humans in the Mighty Nein.

Beau is the one of the few members of the Mighty Nein that Caleb has allowed to command Frumpkin. After she lost her pet owl, he changed Frumpkin into an owl and loaned him to her to try and make her feel better.[60]

Despite their inherent difficulty in communicating their feelings and emotions to each other, in the aftermath of discovering the burnt apothecary of a halfling alchemist named Yeza Brenatto, it was Beau who gave Caleb support when he was panicked about having to reveal his story, prompting her to tell him with such sincerity and earnest concern, "Don't run."[61] And during their time in Xhorhas, the two of them finally came to a true understanding when they finally admitted that they see each other as friends and that they both want what's best for both the Empire and the Kryn Dynasty.[62] They've become more comfortable with each other since.

Expositor Dairon Edit

The expositor was specially called in by Archivist Xenoth to help find Beauregard, whereupon Dairon released Archivist Xenoth from any responsibility concerning Beau's teaching. Dairon then trained Beauregard in the monk tradition of the Way of the Cobalt Soul late at night within a warehouse belonging to the Baumbauch Family Brewery.

Beau seems to admire Dairon's skills and showed concern for her when the party found out how far into the Empire the war had moved while they were at sea.[citation needed] Beau wants to impress Dairon. She proudly told Dairon that the Mighty Nein have done good things and she herself has found lots of good information. Beau takes Dairon's advice to heart.[63]

When the Mighty Nein first encountered the Beacon, Beau suggested turning it into the Cobalt Soul, believing them to be more trustworthy than the Dwendalian Empire.[64] Between finding the artifact and her next conversation with Dairon, she changed her mind for unknown reasons.[citation needed] After learning how powerful the Beacon is, Beau still did not tell Dairon about it. Her reasons for keeping the Beacon secret from Dairon are unclear.

Fjord Edit

Beau met Fjord, along with Jester, about a day before the rest of the party. The trio fought a snake together before the events of the first episode. Beau and Fjord seemed to have already established some trust and rapport as both are laid back, though Fjord tends towards being charming (if, at times, disingenuous) while Beau, in contrast, is blunt and outspoken. They seem to be the "go-getters" of the group when it comes to making contacts and steering the direction of The Mighty Nein. Fjord coaches Beau in improving her social skills. She often asks him for notes and suggestions for improvement after negotiating with someone.

Beau catches on to Fjord misleading the party about his dreams and his accent, but it doesn't seem to bother her that he might be keeping secrets.[65]

Fjord and Beau further bond over managing the Ball-Eater after Beau becomes First Mate in "The Stowaway".

Jester Lavorre Edit

Jester is one of Beau's closest friends. Beau met her and Fjord about a day before the rest of the party. The trio fought a snake together before the events of the first episode.

Fan art of Jester and Beau[66], by Amy King.[art 7]

They have been roommates at almost every place the group has stayed so far, and Jester is one of the few people Beau has shown open kindness to. In "A Storm of Memories" (2x46), during the middle of a stormy night, Beau showed a much more vulnerable side of her and opened up to Jester about her lonely childhood. She voiced how grateful she was for their friendship, a sentiment Jester reciprocated with a hug from behind. This honest gesture of affection allowed Beau to say "Love you, Jess", and Jester replied in kind, strengthening the bond between them even further.

Beau is highly protective of Jester, and views her as a younger sister, according to Marisha.

Keg Edit

Beau frequently impressed Keg with her skills, leading to frequent comments of "Keg is aroused."[67] As part of the ongoing joke, Beau flips the comment and admits to being aroused by Keg in "The Stalking Nightmare" (2x29).[68] After they slay Lorenzo, she asks Keg to spend the night with her, an offer which she accepts.

Mollymauk Tealeaf Edit

Beau and Molly had an interesting relationship. Beau's natural suspiciousness of people combined with Molly's flamboyant lies and deflection caused friction at first, but after Molly's backstory reveal Beau admitted to liking him better. The two got high together off the skein they bought in Trostenwald, and their relationship had become less antagonistic. At the Harvest Close Festival, Beau used the two wooden swords Nott won to impersonate Molly, and after Beau drank numerous half-empty mugs of leftover alcohol from a bar, Molly called her a "trash person", but paradoxically not in an insulting manner.

After Molly's death, Beau displayed a new tenderness towards her fallen companion, speaking in particular about how she doubted his "leave things better than you find them" attitude at first, but eventually grew to understand it. She also later had Jester give her a tattoo of an eye, matching one that Molly had.

Nott Edit

Beau and Nott have been warming up to one another, largely due to their mutual friendship with Caleb. Nott seems impressed by Beau's Cobalt Soul status, thinking she is a cool secret agent.[69] The three of them share the bond of having family in the Dwendalian Empire.

Beau is impressed with Nott's bravery and resilience facing her fear of water, especially after learning Nott had been drowned in her previous life.[61]

Yasha Edit

Beau's interactions with Yasha have largely been in an effort to sleep with her, beginning with Yasha asking Beau to relinquish her staff at the carnival. Later, she asked Yasha to "hold [her] through the show", though Yasha refused without proper payment. A few days later Beau attempted to get a "good look" at Yasha's nude body in the bathhouse in Zadash by delaying her own departure, an effort which was successful. Beau comforting Yasha when she learned of Molly's death highlighted their growth as friends (rather than as a one-sided sexual interest), though Beau is still interested in a more romantic relationship and continues to flirt with Yasha whenever possible.

  • "I've driven most people in my life away from me. Hearing him talk like that, it's not the first time I've heard those things, and I don't want to drive you guys away. I don't want us to drive each other away." (after hearing Caduceus consider leaving the Mighty Nein)[108]
  • Plank King: "I have to say, for someone so small, you've got some serious balls."
    Beau: "Thanks. That's not the first time I've heard that."
    Plank King: "And if you survive, I'm sure it won't be the last." (after Beau claims to have evidence of Avantika planning a coup against the Plank King}[109]
  • "You have sixty seconds, but I have more knuckles." (after using Extort Truth on Avantika)[110]
  • Beau: "Sorry again for being a dick. I think I've been a little on edge with the boat."
    Fjord: "It's all right. I'm kind of immune now. I just take it."
    Beau: "It's really just a knee-jerk. It would've happened if it was anybody. You could've been a scarecrow, and I would've been like 'Fuck off, bro!'"[111]
  • "Sorry I found your cuteness alarming." (Parting apology to Twiggy)
  • "Don't run. You can say you don’t believe in anything, and that’s fine… Believe in us just a little bit?" (spoken to Caleb in a softer and more earnest tone than normal to convince him to open up to the party[61])

Trivia Edit

  • "Beauregard" means "beautiful gaze" when translated from French.
  • As revealed by Marisha at MCM London, the primary inspiration for Beau was Jessica Jones.
  • Beau is unofficially the party's treasurer.[112]
  • Marisha detailed that Beau's fighting style is based on a Russian martial art called "systema."[113]
  • Beauregard got the first "How do you want to do this?" of the campaign.[114]
  • Beau has a seemingly endless supply of "pocket bacon".
  • Liam once referred to Beau as "Ms. Lionett".[115] Her surname had previously been the subject of speculation out of game, but in game it has not been mentioned except for this one instance. Liam later called this a "slip-up" and noted Caleb doesn't know Beau's last name, implying that it not might be accurate information.[116]
  • Despite being a member of one of the Empire's religious orders, Beau doesn't appear to be particularly respectful towards religion or devout worshipers. However, she did pray to the Knowing Mistress when the Mighty Nein was trying to avoid getting noticed by a Xhorhassian roc.
  • Beau understands that her name parallels a number of things that she can do as a monk, or items that she carries. As such, she jokingly calls her quarterstaff her "beau" staff, and her monk class feature "flurry of beau's".
  • Beau has disguised herself as a man several times.
