Raquel Guibert was a student in Rouen, Normandy. She was an expert in folklore regarding the world of Faerie. In 1995, when the French fad of "liberating" garden gnomes was in full swing, Raquel joined with Alizon Riand and Becca Milleron to write an article about the "Garden Gnome Freedom Front," then decided to make this hypothetical organization a reality. The three pulled off several "liberations" in the suburban town of Saint-Clément.

Literary commentEdit

Raquel is named after Laura Frankos' daughter Rachel Turtledove. Interestingly, Raquel is the Spanish (also Catalan and Portuguese) version of Rachel; the French version would be Rachelle. However, it is not unheard of for French people to have Spanish names.
