The apple of her late father’s eye, Mlle. Descoteaux has worked hard to secure her position at the Antiquities Museum. Not a naturally gifted scholar, she is, though, a hard worker; coupled with years of experience working in her parents’ antiquities business in the Old City and with M. Kutay and the Abbé’s tutelage, Micheline is progressing well in her studies and hopes to take on her own, albeit small, department relatively soon.

Recently orphaned and a young woman alone in Cairo, she relies very much on her colleagues for moral support and guidance, although she tries to let nothing dampen her naturally cheery disposition. Money is tight for Mlle. Descoteaux as she does not have the time to run the family business and carry out her work at the museum. She still lives behind the shop, but has almost run out of things to sell. She is, however, too proud to ask for help in such matters (particularly as she is well aware of M. Kutay’s financial situation).

Blonde and bronzed by the ever-present sun, Micheline cannot afford to be stylish but she does her utmost to maintain her appearance, in part because she knows that, sadly, her looks will be just as important in ensuring her future career as her brains. Anyone paying attention will notice that her clothing has been carefully repaired several times and that the soles of her shoes are almost worn through.
