"Jacques" is a general name given to the revolutionaries in order to protect their identities. They each use the name Jacques and are assigned numbers.

“Jacques One, Jacques Two, Jacques Three! This is the witness encountered by appointment, by me, Jacques Four. He will tell you all. Speak, Jacques Five!”
