Antoine Petithomme is one of Daria's friends from Raft in Ruthless Bunny's Bed and Breakfast Man. Antoine is president of the Black Student Union. He and Daria meet at a Student Government meeting that Daria forced to attend in her role as assistant to the Dean of the English Department. Antoine becomes a friend and ally as they both navigate the sometimes racist, sexist and classist system of "Ivy League" universities. Antione is an idealist and he provides a counterpoint for Daria's cynical view of the world. Daria and Antoine band together to help elect Quinn's cat, Joyce, president of student government.
