Musse was born in western Erebonia as the daughter of Alfred de Cayenne and his wife, the daughter of Count Theodore and Suzanne Egret. She lost her parents in a maritime accident when she was 6 years old, after which she moved in with the maternal grandparents.
With her father dead, Alfred's brother Croire inherited the title of Duke Cayenne and transferred Musse to Heimdallr, where she would be entrapped in St. Astraia Girls' School's elementary courses for the next 10 years of her life. She dropped out soon after the Erebonian Civil War. During this transition, Mildine changed her name to Musse, the pet name used when she was still a child, and changed to more casual attire. 
Immediately after the civil war, Musse contacts Aurelia Le Guin who had been an acquaintance of Count Egret since childhood and demonstrated her ability by informing the general of both the Northern War and the imperial government's proposal. This demonstration convinced Aurelia that Musse should inherit the title of Duchess Cayenne instead of the greed-driven Wilhelm Ballad. By this point, Musse had also already reached out to Vita Clotilde.
Gifted to see the current political situation within Erebonia like the pieces of a chessboard, it was what led to this position and able to calculate the innumerable developments that could spawn from the present situation, she was able to predict the possibility of the National Mobilization Law, the war with Calvard and the spread of Erebonia's curse by the end of S.1205.[Note 1]
Musse's strategy against Osborne's schemes were twofold. The first was to ensure the position of principal at Thors Branch Campus would be filled by Aurelia. The second was to claim the seat as Duchess Cayenne and secretly gather volunteers for the Weissland Army, which would start its operations after the start of the Great Twilight. She decided to call the plan Mille Mirage. 
She signed up for the Class IX of Thors Branch Campus under Instructor Towa Herschel half a year later, supposedly inspired by the Imperial Army. In reality, she had an interest in Rean Schwarzer, the instructor of Class VII, hoping that his status as Osborne's son and the "Sacrifice" would be benefit her strategical thinking. She eventually transferred to Class VII 18 August S.1204 in an attempt to get closer to him.
While she has the grace of a noble and receives good grades in class, there is something unfathomable about her, as she is set on seducing Rean, for which her classmate Ash Carbide compares her to a jorougumo. In battle, Musse wields an Orbal carbine, specializing in long range attacks and rear support.
During the provincial council in Ordis in Trails of Cold Steel III, Chapter 3: "Pulse of Steel", it is revealed that her name is actually Mildine Juzalith de Cayenne. She is tentatively elected as successor of Duke Croire de Cayenne, the younger brother of her deceased father. Representatives of the Four Great Houses, such as Jusis Albarea, Angelica Rogner and Patrick T. Hyarms, as well as the imperial family, were aware of Musse's real identity. She kept it a secret from Class VII and the other students at Thors Branch Campus.
As preliminary Duchess Cayenne, Mildine reveals the plans she has been preparing with the other Four Great Houses. The imperial government is preparing for a war with the Calvard Republic, and they have set a number of actions in motion as a counter-measure. One of these includes reviving the former Noble Alliance's military prowess as the so-called Weissland Army, led by General Aurelia and Lieutenant General Wallace Bardias. She also realized a collaboration with Vita.
Musse eventually left her classmates once the Great Twilight started to begin her plan, using one of Grianos' feathers to leave the Gral of Erebos. In anticipation of her plan, Musse sent her grandparents away to a remote villa for their safety.
Musse was eventually picked up by the Pantagruel and met with Aurelia and Vita, expressing regret for her failure to stop the Great Twilight and ridden with guilt for enacting a plan that would sacrifice millions. She eventually comes to terms with this and decides to meet with her classmates one final time. Having Aurelia accompany her, she decides to head to Osgiliath Basin where she eventually meets up with them, and indifferently tells them her intentions. Her classmates don't fully believe she would be capable of such an act, just as the tense reunion is interrupted by Cedric and his cronies. After they are driven off, Musse eventually decides to return to Class VII, entrusting Aurelia with the Weissland Army for the time being.
She later reveals her plan, Mille Mirage, to Osborne following Rean's rescue from the Black Workshop.
Musse accompanied Class VII for a visit to her hometown when they decided to settle on Ordis to start their search for Thors affiliates and certain VIPs. They arrived on foot, causing the guards to become suspicious. Musse convinced the guards to let them in by pretending to be Rean's fiancée.
Upon learning from Celestin that Theodore had gone missing alongside Fernand Hyarms, Musse contacted the family maid, Setsuna, to assist Class VII in rescuing her grandfather. She stopped the one of the Special Guard from firing on Marquis Hyarms and later saw her grandfather off at Raquel.
Musse later suggested a "meeting spot" which she and Aurelia had organized after Elise and Tio were rescued, gathering representatives from Calvard, Liberl and Remiferia to discuss the inevitable war. In a private meeting, Musse eventually decided to entrust her plan to Cassius Bright. The meeting was interrupted by Ouroboros forces that greatly outnumbered the party; seeing no other choice, she opted to ram the Pantagruel into the Glorious, intending to go down with the ship; however, the Courageous II arrived before she could do so. She was later scolded by Rean for attempting such a dangerous method to resolve the situation.
She later attended the wedding of Olivert and Scherazard Harvey.
Musse appears to be quite playful and teasing in her debut, getting close to Rean Schwarzer; although her act was simply a ploy to get close to him, she does admit that she prefers his type.
In reality, she is a tactical genius, likening everything, including herself, as "pieces on a chessboard", analyzing every single potential scenario and utilizing them to their maximum extent. Due to this, she was able to see Giliath Osborne as a threat, drafting the Mille Mirage in an attempt to stop him. She doesn't like to rely on others too much, nor does she believe in the impossible, considering the latter dangerous to her strategic thinking.
She appreciates tea and enjoys nodate (tea ceremony), having joined the tea club in the branch academy and has a kimono passed down as a keepsake.
