A Breton with a strong dislike for Regulus Terentius' lack of interest in the welfare of the county, Antoine spends most of his time tending the horses, while scouting the Green Road for potential customers. He is not allowed inside the stables and only owns a bedroll without any form of coverage behind the building. Regardless of the weather he sleeps there every night between 10pm and 6am. After waking up, he spends the first two hours of the day strolling around. At 8am, his workday begins, and he starts raking the ground inside the corral. He stops at noon and sits down on the bench near the stable door for a two-hour lunch. He gets up again at 2pm and spends all afternoon wandering around near the stables. At 6pm, he once again sits down on the bench, this time to enjoy a two-hour dinner. At 8pm, with the stables closed and not much to do, he just loiters lazily around the pen until he returns to his bedroll at 10pm. The one exception to this schedule occurs after Isabeau sells you a horse, then Antoine will stand next to the horse until you mount it, before resuming his usual routine.

Take good care of him." On the subject of Bravil, he will passionately tell you his honest opinion about the Count and his son: "The Count was once a tournament champion. Now he's a loafer and skirt-chaser. And his son, Gellius, is a spoiled good-for-nothing skooma-sucker."will have your new Bay saddled and ready for you." Outside, he will present it to you plain and simple: “Here is your horse.“ If you manage to speak with Antoine before hearing this comment (see
- Due to an odd script, only one of Antoine's two post-purchase dialogue lines can be heard, and only once.
- An additional greeting for Antoine was recorded, but will never be heard in-game: "Antoine Branck. I just work here. If you want a horse, go inside and talk to Isabeau."
