TV show is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris, where law and order is more an idea than reality. More than King Louis XIIIâ€™s personal bodyguards, Athos, Aramis and Porthos stand resolutely for social justice, for honor, for valor, for love â€“ and for the thrill of it. Dâ€™Artagnan, a skilled fighter from rural Gascony, meets the three Musketeers while on a mission to right the wrong of his fatherâ€™s death. Although he meets the men in unfortunate circumstances, he finds kindred spirits in the other soldiers. Athos, who has rejected his noble roots to become a Musketeer, quickly befriends Dâ€™Artagnan, but has a past which is shrouded in mystery, and is prone to getting in trouble. Porthos is a larger-than-life character, who has come from humble beginnings to become a solider in the most elite regiment in the land, finding a family in the other Musketeers. Never short of admirers, Aramis has an effortless charm which leads him in and out of love. Despite this, he is a shrewd pragmatist who is a ferocious in battle and commands a key place in the brotherhood.
