The Comte de Monte Christo
The Comte has proven to be an effective leader and his men have come to love the dashing young officer.  He prides himself on the unique look of his regiment being the only line regiment in green and also the only regiment to wear the Schomberg helmet. 

In addition the Comte has engaged african drummers for the regimental band, further adding to the regiment's exotic look.

The Comte has taken steps to train his men in small boat operations despite Enteburg being landlocked.  In light of this the elector has offered their services to the directors of the Huhnerland und Enteburg India Company to operate as marines upon their ships.
