Mademoiselle Eugenie Danglars Edmond Dantes/COMC/
Sinbad the Sailor/ Abbe Busoni
Lord Wilmore Fernand/
Count de Morcerf Mercedes Loves her Cousin-zones him,
then marries him Fiance of Danglars Fiance of Hates him Louis Dantes Father of Son of Caderousse Shipmate of Monsieur Morrel Owner of ship he works on Shipmate on his ship Prosecutor Villefort Accomplice of Arrested by Accomplice of Arrests Mortal enemy of Noirtier Jacapo Abbe Faria Caderousse is sluggish, meaning lazy, because he rarely does anything and is constantly drunk. "....with the tenacity of a drunk, was leaning outside the arbor" (Dumas 16). He sits around with Danglars and drinks for much of the beginning chapters, and is cranky whenever he wants something or fails to get his way. Indifferent to Edmond is excitable, meaning joyful, because he shows excitement when Monsieur Morrel says he will make him captain. "'Without her captain!' cried Dantes, his eyes flashing with joy. 'Do you really intend to make me captain of the Pharaon?" (Enger 6). Edmond always is in a good mood and is extremely optimistic. Danglars is vindictive, meaning having or showing a strong or unreasoning desire for revenge. "...[Possessed] by the demon of hatred and trying to breathe some evil insinuation against his comrade (Dantes) into the shipowner's ear..." (7). Danglars is vindictive because he has an insatiable desire to cause Dantes as much pain and misery as he can. Mercedes is tenacious, meaning firm to her believes. "'I love you like a brother, but never ask anything more of me because my heart belongs to someone else'" (Dumas 11). No matter what, Mercedes stick to her belief of marrying Edmond. Fernand is selfish because he is constantly wanting Mercedes to marry him,
even though she has made up her mind. "' ...a good time for a wedding. Give
me an answer!' ...'I love you like a brother but my heart belongs to something
else' ...he hissed between his teeth. ' What if he dies?'"(Dumas 11-12). Fernand
is never able to understand the fact the Mercedes loves Edmond because he
thinks so high of himself. Napoleon Bonaparte King Louis XVIII Renee Marquis and Marquise (Rene's parents) Blancas Dandre Emmanuel Herbaut Maximilien Morrel Julie Morrel Baron Franz Caderousse's Wife Captain Lecre Albert de Morcerf Daughter of Father of Husband of Son of Wife of Father of Accomplice of Accomplice of To marry Rivals To marry Previous Captain of Owner of ship he works on Prosecutor Villefort is egocentric, meaning self centered. "'If he knows what's in the letter... and if he ever learns that Noirtier is Villefort's father, I'm ruined, ruined forever!" (Dumas 29). Villefort does not care about Edmond's innocence, he just cares about making sure that no one ever knows who his father is. Caderousse's wife is cynical, meaning non-believing or doubtful. "'What if it were only an imitation diamond... To learn your secret without paying for it, idiot'" (Dumas 111). She is very distrusting in all that she finds wrong, such as Caderousse giving out his secret in exchange for a diamond. Captain Lecre was a brave man. "' We lost our brave Captain Lecre off Civitavecchia'" (Dumas 2). He was brave and admirable to his crew, and was highly respected. Monsieur Morrel is an honorable man. "'If I live, everything changes; I become only a man who did not honor his word, who failed to meet his obligations'" (Dumas 128). He is very honorable as he does not wish to become a man who failed to pay his taxes- he'd rather kill himself than fail his honor and word. Maximilien is an authoritative person. " Although he was only twenty-two years old, Maximilien Morrel already had great influence over his father" (Dumas 125). He is very helpful around his father's business and makes many important decisions there, making his father very proud. Louis Dantes is compassionate, meaning caring, to others and his firm beliefs. "'And you lived for three months on sixty francs?'" (Dumas 8). Louis gave Caderousse 140 francs to fill out his debts to him, as he is very firm and compassionate in his beliefs,which is to be a true and honest man. Abbe Faria is a very resourceful man. "Do you know that it took me four years to make my tools? Do you know that for two years I scratched and scraped earth as hard as granite? Do you know that I had to dislodge stones which I would never have thought myself capable of moving?" (51) Faria plots his escape in his endless hours of time to himself, and uses everything he has to execute his plan, after which he finds out he dug the wrong way. Julie Morrel is compliant, meaning she listens to those around her and does what they tell her to do. "'Do you promise to do what the letter tells you?"' '"I swear"' (Dumas 123). Julie listens to 'The Englishman' and help save her family from debt and her fathers life. Jacopo is caring, meaning compassionate and loving. "'Well, then, captain,' said Jacopo, the sailor who had saved Dantes' life, 'why can't he stay with us?"' (Dumas 84). Jacopo is begging the captain to keep a complete stranger on the ship and take care of him. Noirtier is stubborn, meaning unyielding, often unreasonably so. "'Are you disinheriting your granddaughter because she's about to marry against your wishes?' 'Yes'" (251). Noirtier is stubborn because he doesn't want Valentine to marry Franz, so he's disinheriting her to try and convince her parents to call off the marriage. Emmanuel is beneficial,meaning helpful. "'...I'm sure God will reward you by giving you Emmanuel as your husband"' (Dumas 123). The Count thinks highly of Emmanuel and knows that without him and his help, the Morrel's business would not be half as successful.This is why he thinks God will reward Julie if she does something good- she will get a great husband. Rene's parents are ideocentric, meaning they are stuck to their own ideas. "'..the Bonapartists had neither our conviction,our enthusiasm,nor our devotion'" (Dumas 21). They are strict Royalists and beive that the Bonapartists are terrible people and have terrible ideas. Napoleon is crafty, meaning clever and scheming. "'He asked me about the ship, when it had left for Marseilles, what route it had taken and what cargo it was carrying"' (Dumas 4). All of the questions Napoleon asks shows that he is very crafty and is trying to make a comeback and take over France. Blacas is trustworthy, as he always does something to help others. "' ..man has just arrived from Marsailles to tell me, a great danger threatens the king,' I therefore came to you immediately sire'" (Dumas 35). He is very trustworthy as when the king is threatened he immediately tells him the dangers coming to him. Dandre is desperate,meaning he'll do anything to get his point across. "' the [usurper] has landed in France, in a little port near Antibes'" (Dumas 37). When telling the king of the upcoming disaster, he is on the ground yelling and pleading the terrible thing unfolding. Albert is diffident, meaning lacking confidence in one's own ability, worth, or fitness. "'[Mademoiselle Danglars is] very pretty, even beautiful; but she has a kind of beauty that I don't appreciate. I'm unworthy of her!' ... 'Mademoiselle Danglars is too rich for me'" (227). Albert is diffident because he feels unworthy to marry Eugenie Danglars. Franz is distrustful, meaning he doesn't trust people a lot. "'Are you sure we can trust this Count?'" (Dumas 136). Franz is not sure whether to trust the Count because of his strange hobbies and his eccentric-ness. Put him in debt Owed money to First Wife of Widower of Parents of Daughter of Fellow Prisoner of Fellow Prisoner of Son of Father of Ali Haydee Bertuccio Assunta Monsieur Lucien Debray Monsieur Beauchamp Monsieur de Chateau- Renaud Madame Danglars Edouard Villefort Heloise de Villefort Major Bartomeleo Calvalcanti Barrois Valentine de Villefort Bertuccio is vengeful meaning that he desires vengeance. "...I have only one thing to say to you: I'm going to kill you. From this moment on I declare a vendetta against you" (Dumas 186). By declaring a vendetta on Villefort it proves that he is very vengeful. Monsieur Joannes Vasiliki Tepelini Ali Teppelini Pasha Monsieur de Boville d'Avrigny Servent of Benedetto/
Andrea Penelon Penelon is precise, meaning marked by exactness and accuracy of expression or detail. "Well, sir, we were somewhere between Cape Blanc and Cape Boyador, sailig along with a good south-southwesterly breeze, when Captain Gaumard came up to me--I forgot to tell you that I was at the helm--..." (120). Penelon is precise because he remembers exact details of the voyage, even after traumatic events (the ship being torn to bits). Master of Serves Is captain
to Slave of Mother of Daughter of Haydee is loyal, meaning giving or showing firm and constant support or allegiance to a person or institution. "(Monte Cristo) 'Do you mean that
if I left you-' 'I'd die, yes'" (529). Haydee is so
loyal to the Count, she would kill herself if he
left her. Daughter of Father of Friends Servant of Had an affair with Master of 'Stepson of' 'Stepfather of' Mademoiselle Louise D'Armilly "Friends" Loyal to Trusts Trusts Loyal to Father of Son of Major Bartomeleo Calvalcanti is unethical meaning dishonest and indecent. "'Of course not; our interests are the same"' (Dumas 239). He is unethical because he is accepting money to fake an identity . 'Killed' 'Killed by' Ali is obedient, meaning willing to serve, and complying with all requests. "Ali suddenly set down his chibouk, drew a lasso from his pocket, threw it, caught the front legs of the left-hand horse and let himself be dragged along for three or four steps" (207). Ali is obedient because he follows the orders of his master to the letter. Daughter of Father of 2nd Wife of Husband of Son of Father of Son of Mother of Homies Benedetto is wicked meaning vile and vicious. "'Let's torture her, then she'll tell us where the money is!'" (Dumas 197). Benedetto commanded his own mother to tell him where the money is. She refused and he tortured her. How sweet. Puts a knife in his chest Killed by Girlfriend of Boyfriend of Sister in law of Brother in law of Adopted Son of Burned by "Son" of "Father" of Supporter Loyal Subject of Butler of Master of Thinks highly of Supporter of Family Doctor of Thankful of King Louis is irritable, meaning easily annoyed/angered/frustrated. "'Monsieur de Villefort,' said Louis XVIII, 'the duke here informs me you have something important to tell us.' ... 'Yes, I know that,' said the king, strongly agitated". King Louis is irritable because he is just having a normal conversation, and then he gets extremely upset, for no reason! Son of Mother of Homies Barrois is devoted meaning loyal and dedicated. "After dismissing Barrois, an old servant who had been in Monsieur Noirtier's service for more than twenty-five years, they sat down on either side of him" (Dumas 244). Barrois is devoted because he spent twenty-five years in the service of Noirtier. Invests in his business Was in debt to Pays off Morrels debt to Receives money from Danglars Owes money to Deserves money from Homies Homies Joannes is sincere, meaning free from pretense or deceit. "''So be it, then,' said Caderousse to the jeweler, 'take the diamond for forty-five thousand francs.' The jeweler counted out fifteen thousand francs in gold and thirty thousand francs in banknotes'" (192). Joannes is sincere because he buys the diamond without deceit: he buys it for its full value without pulling any tricks. Madame Danglars is spoiled meaning excessively pampered and indulgent. "Spread out on a table, that enormous fortune (1.2 Million Francs) appeared rather unimpressive" (Dumas 457). Madame Danglars is spoiled because she sees a vast fortune enough to keep her and an entire village alive for years, and is unimpressed. Assunta is motherly, meaning caring, and compassionate. "Assunta wept, for she had a true mothers' heart for that boy" (Dumas 197). Assunta cares for the child (Benedetto), and helps raise him as her own. She even loves him when he is demanding of her- she can't get over her love of him to deal with him. Debray is business-like, meaning serious and likes to get to the point. "A tall, pale, fair-haired young man with cold lips walked into the room without speaking or smiling" (Dumas 162). Even from his appearance, Debray is not one who seems accustomed to fun. As he is a banker, he is also pessimistic and sees the worst in many situations. Beauchamp is a good-natured, meaning relaxed and friendly. "'Let's just pretend the situation never happened ad just begin with lunch'" (Dumas 166). Instead of getting ang Beauchamp is a good-natured, meaning relaxed and friendly. "'Let's just pretend the situation never happened ad just begin with lunch'" (Dumas 166). Instead of getting angry, Beauchamp calmly and happily asks to get on with the situation. Chateau-Renaud is realistic, meaning believes things that can actually happen, but doesn't believe things that don't. "No doubt your friend the Count of Monte Cristo is a gallant man, but did that run-in with the Italian bandits actually happen?" (Dumas 166). He believes that most of Morcerf's story is true, but he doesn't believe that someone would have an actual run in with Italian bandits. apparently like pessimistic or optimistic Monseiur de Boville is trusting, meaning he believes what people tell him. "And I'll have the money without fail?' 'Of Course!" (Dumas 442). Boville believes Danglars when he tells him that he will give him his money the next day, something he shouldn't do Doctor d'Avrigny is intelligent, as he is people smart and doctor smart. "...one of the ablest doctors in Paris, he was especially fond of Valentine" (Dumas 286). He is smart and is always trying to find a way to cure someone or help someone out. He notices very minor details much of the time. Eugenie Danglars is gregarious, meaning sociable, because she is well known and is often with friends. "Valentine had received a visit from Eugenie before she could see Maximillian" (Dumas 241). Eugenie is constantly with people and is always wanting to do new things. Wife Husband Valentine is affectionate meaning loving and sweet. "'Oh, yes, yes! I thank you with all my heart! ... My darling, the count just told us that all human wisdom is contained in these two words: Wait and hope'" (528, 531). Valentine is affectionate because she cares deeply about the Count and Maximilien, and loves them both (in different amounts, of course). Heloise is vindictive meaning spiteful and cruel. "No sound indicated to Valentine that she had gone; she merely saw her arm disappear: that fresh rounded arm of a women of twenty five who was pouring out death" (Dumas 426). Heloise is vindictive because she tries to kill Valentine. Edouard is intelligent meaning smart and clever. "'Your son was quoting Cornelius Nepos when he mentioned King Mithridates,' said Monte Cristo, 'which shows that he's quite advanced for his age.'' (Dumas 223). Edouard is intelligent because he quotes Cornelius Nepos perfectly while he is cutting up a photo album. Renee is mannerly, meaning well-mannered and polite. "'Forgive me, mother,' said a lovely young girl with blond hair and soft eyes. 'I was monopolizing Monsieur de Villefort's attention'" (21). Renee is mannerly because she is polite, even in times of excitement, like her betrothal feast. Louise is dependable, meaning trustworthy and reliable. "The only people who remained were Danglars, making his statement to the commisary in his study, Madame Danglars, tembling in her boudoir, and Eugenie, who haughtily withdrew to her room with her inseparable companion, Mademoiselle Louise d' Armilly" (410). Louise is dependable because she is there for Eugenie in her times of need, like when her arranged husband turns out to be a murderer, and then runs away with her. Ali Pasha is trusting, meaning having faith in the goodness of people. "[Fernand] produced evidence showing that Ali Pasha had, up to the last day of his life, honored him with his entire confidence, since he entrusted him with a life-and-death mission to the emperor himself" (354). Ali Pasha is trusting because he holds Fernand in his confidence enough to send him on important personal matters, and leave him to care for his wife and daughter after his death. Vasiliki is loving, meaning affectionate and caring for the well-being of others. "'...in payment for a Christian slave girl named Haydee, eleven years of age and a recognized of the late Ali Pasha of Yanina and his favorite, Vasiliki'" (358). Vasiliki is loving because she was the favorite (of the implied many wives) of Ali Pasha. She was most likely very beautiful (her genes were passed to Haydee, and the picture of Ali Pasha to the right is of the real man), but she must've loved Haydee and the pasha very much to have been his favorite.
