Thumbnail: Me and my brother, Claude! (I'm the one in the red)
Please don't eliminate me!
Bonjour! I am Jehan Frollo, a quality, significant character from the Hunchback of Notre-Dame, and a loving, affectionate brother to my brother dear, Claude! ( @-Frollo-) The reason I made this studio is because, despite being supremely important, I am often cut out of most interpretations! I am also not a very popular character and people don't like me! TToTT
"Jehan, though being a rather common character in almost all the versions of HoND produced, is actually not so common as one might think. His name is used, but for the most part, Jehan is inaccurately portrayed. Either the movies or plays find use for him as a bad guy, or they don't use him at all. This is understandable, for they often have a small budget, and added characters who had nothing to the story will often get in the way." ~Some website I found. TToTT
HERE IS MY BEAUTIFUL DESCRIPTION:
Jehan du Moulin
Another comic character, Jehan du Moulin, alternately called Joannes Frollo de Molendino, is Claude Frollo's younger brother and the quintessential Prodigal Son.
Money burns a hole in Jehan's pocket, especially when there are drinks and prostitutes to be had, but his older brother just can't say no to him. Jehan keeps cropping up everywhere in the book to cause trouble and say bawdy things (though you should take a look at our "Character Role Identification" section to see why they are important bawdy things). He comes to a rather gruesome end at the hands of Quasimodo.
Oh, uh, never mind! That's Claude's description! DON'T READ THAT!!
HERE IS A BETTER DESCRIPTION:
Jehan Frollo - Claude Frollo's brother. Jehan is a horrible student who gambles and drinks all his money away. He decides to join the vagabonds and Quasimodo kills him as he attacks Notre Dame.
ACTUALLY NO!! THAT WAS ALSO CLAUDE'S!! DON'T READ THAT ONE EITHER!
AH! HERE WE GO:
Born Joannes Frollo (nicknamed Jehan), his mother and father died from the plague when he was just a babe. Taken in by his older brother Claude Frollo, he was given to a wet nurse (or a woman who was also suckling another child at the time) at the Moulin (another fief which the Frollo family owned) near Gentilly and the castle of Winchestre. Here, Jehan spent his childhood, and later earned the rest of his praenomen from it (Joannes de Molendino or "Jehan of the Windmill", for Moulin means windmill in French). His brother Claude would pay him visits every week or so, but due to the older brother's dedication to study, he did not see Jehan as much as he should have. Perhaps due to this, or other reasons, Jehan grew up unruly. Hoping to bring him up in the scholarly way that Claude grew up, his older brother entrusted Jehan to the Collège de Torchi when the boy was of a proper age. Yet this did nothing but introduce Jehan to greater forms of mischief, and Claude would often receive reports about Jehan's surly behavior. Where Claude had avoided all the student uprisings, Jehan practically led them. He was well-known, favorably by other students (his best friend being Robin Poussepain), and fearfully by the townspeople. Because the boy did not have a source of income, he would often have to approach his older brother for money. Claude knew where exactly this money went (drinking and carousing) and would give his brother a stern lecture for every denier he handed Jehan. Jehan, however, had quite a charming disposition, and would always make Claude forgive him for his indiscretions. But this stopped when Claude's life became so ruined by Esmeralda, he finally got fed up with his brother and cast Jehan out. Jehan then joined the Truants in the Court of Miracles.
That... Was also Claude's! DON'T REEEEAD IT!!
I'm done! *leaves*
