 Synopsis
 
 pushed by chance, the Knight takes Mariotte and the Anicet in his quest for redemption which itself barely distinguishes the meaning.
In the first volume, the three companions fall asleep in “wood of the mists” and fall into a dream where he is matter of strange elves and a Malbête to fight. This first dream quest, is a success.
In the second opus, the elves of the wood of the mists call to help the companions for issuance of the Dhuards, kinds of evil monsters, who oppress. Again, the gist of the story happens in a dream but, as the approaching companions, it is no less important and dangerous.
The companions arrive finally in the last episode Montroy city where they decide to spend the winter. Lady Neyrelle Lord of the castle is not indifferent to the arrival of the Knight in his city and intrigue for the companions are housed in the Castle…
 
Analysis
 
There is first the Cent war years who imprisons the characters in a world of insecurity and violence: companies live on looting the country. It is not good travel alone (especially for a woman) and the Anicet and Mariotte have little choice but to follow the Knight.
François Bud is also looking for a some have through his story: the character of the breton trouvère is an example and the characters of the three sirens (white, Neyrelle, and Carmine) and Merlin l’enchanteur. The story also evokes the blurred boundaries between the Celtic and Christian tradition. Thus we learn that the dates of certain Christian holidays coincide purposely with Celtic festivals. In counterpoint to the story, a Druid tells his disciple the stanzas of the poem series [1].
The most original theme is the evocation of a world dominated by the struggle of three transcendent forces:
the white force which symbolizes good and purity
the black force represents the death and destruction is the master of death in the story
the Red force embodied in the life, feelings and passion.
These three forces collide through real or fantastic characters: Yuna and the White Lady, the elves and the Dhuards, Mariotte itself, or the three sirens which symbolize all.
 
Characters
 
Mariotte was born during the hundred years war, dismissed because she lives alone with his grandmother out of village society. Tragic events the lead to follow the Knight. She brings fun, life, and hope to the small company. It is the main character of the series.
The Knight had its hour of glory in tournaments before being mutilated by accident and dismissed by the aristocracy. Thereafter, bitter, he sowed death and desolation at the head of his company. In doing so, he committed a crime too sought to atone.
the Anicet is a young peasant somewhat niais who, forced by events, accompanies willy-nilly the Knight and Mariotte.
It will cross also peeling includes: three sirens (white, Neyrelle, and Carmine), Celtic trouvère Melaine Favennec, a troupe of actors acrobats, a pilgrim to Santiago de Compostela and many others.

Biography
 
 its first BD and news were published between 1971 and 1973 to Bayard press, in the weekly Lisette on texts of Henriette Bichonnier and Fleurus press Henriette Bichonnier weekly Djin in 1974 1975 scenarios: an army for Gaélis (January 22, 1975) and the legend of Freya (April 9, 1975).
His first story, 14 boards, the enemy comes from the sea, written by Cécile Romancère, published in 1972.
He sometimes collaborates on magazine Pif gadget and draws in 1978, Maître Guillaume and the Journal of the builders of cathedrals, an album by Pierre Dhombre and edited written in universe media.
It begins with screenwriter Robert Génin his first series, Brunelle and Colin, who appears in Circus magazine, and the volume 1 was published in January 1979. His inimitable style begins to appear in the character of Brunelle, who already is the draft of the Isa of passengers of the wind. It will be only the first two volumes of the series, and will relay the artist Didier Convard.
In 1979, he starts the passengers of the wind in the journal Circus, series volume 1 was published in January 1980. This historical adventure series, considered one of the most important of the modern comic strip, imposes it to at the outset as a storyteller and a graphic designer outstanding. In January 1980, at the international Festival of the comic strip of Angoulême, he was named best cartoonist of the year.
At the same time, Bud decides to return to the medieval universe already addressed in Brunelle and Colin and designs a first version of the companions of the twilight, exit in 1984.
In 1993, he began in A track, the Source and the probe (Le Cycle de Cyann), a futuristic story produced in collaboration with Claude Lacroix.
In his work, the theme of the initiatory quest is important. It appears in Brunelle and Colin, but the premature abandonment of this series by Bud does not discover the nature of this quest. Fortunately, the theme reappears in Twilight companions and especially in the Cyann Cycle.
In 2003, he wished to “resume the saga of the passengers of the wind” [1]. He began in 2009 and subsequently with a new album, the small daughter Bois-Caiman, in which heroin is Apelles Zabo [2].
Both by his concern for authenticity (he loves for example reconstruct different decors in the form of real models) that by its sense of narration, cutting, dialogues and color development, François Bud is already an iconic figure in the world of the 9th art.

The passengers of the wind
 the passengers of the wind is a saga River taking place in the 18th century, which brought François bud, the pattern of the adventure comic strip in the 1980s [3]. This saga of 5 volumes tells the adventures of a young heroin, called Isa, on bottom of slave trade.
The passengers of the wind has an historic dimension which attracted the eye of historians. For Pap Ndiaye, the interest in this epic adventure, is to find “all points of view on the slave trade”, supporters of slavery to the abolitionists. For Olivier Pétré->, specialist in the history of slavery, the abolitionist of Isa seems perhaps a little too early for a woman just out of a convent and because “the first abolition society in France date in 1788” [4].
