"Grantaire, you're incapable of believing or thinking or willing or living or dying."

"You'll see," said Grantaire, gravely. "You'll see."

Grantaire is a nineteenth-century French university student. Also, he is dead.

Neither of those things are likely to be the first thing anybody notices about him, because the first thing anyone is likely to notice about him is that he hasn't washed in a week and smells like a bottle of absinthe.

Grantaire is depressive, and a serious alcoholic. He's drunk ninety-nine percent of the time, which understandably affects his social graces, although his overall good nature can sometimes get him by. He's a cynic who died for a cause he didn't believe in, because of a person he did.

He was never expecting to end up in anything like Heaven, but to end up in a bar seems peculiarly ironic.

Note: icons aside, Grantaire is drawn from the novel rather than any other version of Les Miserables. If you play a character from a different version canon and want to talk about the intersection, please feel free to contact the player!

Grantaire is from Victor Hugo's novel Les Miserables, and is therefore in the public domain. He appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in [community profile] milliways_bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made.
