Maurice De Bracy

The dashing young Norman has more valor and love of life than good judgment. He is ambitious for a place in Prince John's court, unscrupulous in achieving these ends, and brave in battle, as shown by his part in defending Torquilstone. He accepts defeat without debasing himself. He is realistic about the effect of Richard's return and escapes hastily to France and a place in the court of Philip.
