Transcript of COMC Sociogram

---------------------------------------------------------> Mercedes Mercedes is passionate, meaning she expresses intense or strong feeling. " 'I love Edmond Dantes,' replied the girl coldly, 'and no other man will ever be my husband' " (Dumas 12). "Edmond and Mercedes fell into each other's arms...At first they saw nothing around them; their overwhelming happiness isolated them from the rest of the world" (Dumas 12). Mercedes is passionate because of her devotion to Edmond. She swore she'd marry only him, and her passion makes her oblivious to everything around her, especially Fernand's hatred for Edmond. Danglars Edmond Dantes Old Louis Dantes Fernand Mondego Abbe' Faria Villefort Gaspard Caderousse Monsieur Morrel COMC SOCIOGRAM Karyshma Khan, Gina Kwak, Mark Liles Jacopo Napoleon Count of Monte Cristo At first Dantes is very naive and oblivious, meaning that he has or shows lack of experience, judgement, or information; credulous. "The young man was so candid and open, so full of affection for his fellow man, including even his stern judge, that it seemed to Villefort that each word he spoke was a proof of his innocence" (Dumas 26). Dantes is really modest however he never acknowledges it. And he is very well known and popular, everyone adores him. Sinbad the Sailor In the first chapter, Morrel is shown as laid back and good-natured meaning he is an easygoing person that is generally kind to others. " 'He died of brain fever, in horrible agony.'... 'Well, we're all mortal,' said the shipowner, 'and the old must make way for the young, otherwise there would be no promotion'" (Dumas 2). "'Poor Captain Leclere! He was a brave and honorable man' " (Dumas 3). He is not non-chalant or cruel, but he goes with the flow. If things happen, they happen, and there's nothing he can do about it. Policar Morrel Albert de Morcerf Franz d'Epinay Captain Leclere King Louis XVIII Julie Morrel Abbe Busoni Noirtier Benedetto Valentine de Villefort Maximilien Morrel Ali Madame Danglars Monsieur Lucien Debray Dandre Caderousse's Wife When Dantes is mutanthropous which means that he is changed and a new person. When falls into the water, he emerges into a totally different person. It is like baptism because after being baptized you are "renewed" into a new man. "But he was still being dragged downward by the cannon ball tied to his feet. He bent double and cut the the rope... Then he kicked vigorously and rose to the surface of the sea" (Dumas 80). Now Dantes is cognizant. He is more aware of the world and the many miscreants within it. Louis Dantes is helpless, meaning he is incapable, vulnerable, or dependent. "The old man uttered a cry and turned around, then fell into his son's arms, trembling and pale" (Dumas 7). "'And you lived for three months on sixty francs!', exclaimed Edmond. 'May God forgive me'" (Dumas 8)! Louis Dantes is helpless because of his inability to support himself when Edmond is gone. Edmond has to leave money for him to live off of because he barely has anything of his own. His old age makes him frail and weak, making him unable to support himself physically as well. Danglars is egotistical, meaning he is vain and acts as if he were more important than others, "[O]bsequious to his superiors and arrogant to his subordinates. He was as much disliked by the crew as Edmond was liked by them" (Dumas 2). " '[Edmond's] young, and he has no doubts about anything. As soon as the captain was dead he took command without consulting anyone, and he made us lose a day and a half at the Isle of Elba instead of coming straight to Marseilles' " (Dumas 3). Danglars is egotistical because of his relationship with Edmond. He is angry that Edmond, being so young, gets to be the new captain while he is stuck in a low position. His jealousy leds him to talk badly about Edmond, obviously trying to show that Edmond is a bad captain and that he would be better for the job. Captain Leclere was eminent, meaning he was prominent and noteworthy. "'How ironic- he waged a war against the English for ten long years, then died in his bed like everyone else' " (Dumas 2). "'Poor Captain Leclere! He was a brave and honorable man' " (Dumas 3). Captain Leclere was eminent because of how he led the men on the Pharon. He helped them achieve victory, then died for his cause. He left behind an honorable legacy. Abbe Busoni is humane, meaning he has compassion and sympathy for others (especially for the suffering or distressed). " 'And you tell me a man died of hunger in the midst of other men who call themselves Christian? Impossible! Oh, it's impossible' " (Dumas, 99)! " 'Remember that our purpose is to carry out the last wishes of our friend, so speak frankly, and without hatred' " (Dumas, 102). Abbe Busoni is humane because of his interest in Caderousse and the story of Edmond Dantes. As Caderousse tells him everything he knows, Abbe Busoni shows more and more sympathy for Edmond. He intends to give the diamond to Edmond's friends because it is the least he can do for him. Albert his courteous, meaning he is having good manners and being polite. " 'Count,' said Albert, 'allow me to repeat this morning what I expressed rather badly last night: that I will never forget how you came to my aid and that I will always remember that I owe my life to you' " (Dumas 159). " 'I and all my friends are at your disposal' " (Dumas 159). Albert is courteous because of his relationship with the Count of Monte Cristo. The Count is very kind to Albert- he let him borrow his carraige and saved his life. The least Albert can do is thank him and guide him when he gets to France. Albert always makes sure he is respectful towards the Count, as well as others in high position or authority. Franz is hesitant, meaning he is uncertain or waiting. " 'The count is a very strange man and I'm a little uneasy about the appointment he made with you in Paris' " (Dumas 159). Franz is hesitant becauseof how he feels about the Count of Monte Cristo. While Albert has committed himself to helping the Count, Franz is worried for his friend. The count has lent the men his carraige and saved Albert's life, but Franz is suspicious. He senses the Count has tricks up his sleeve, and possibly that he could put both of them in danger. Count de Morcerf Renee Renee is gracious, meaning she is pleasantly kind, benevolent, and courteous. " 'Forgive me, mother,' said a lovely young girl with blond hair and soft eyes. 'I was monopolizing Monsieur de Villefort's attention' " (Dumas 21). Renee is gracious because she is polite towards her parents and Villefort. She is quiet, but when she speaks, she is very sweet and cordial. She apologized for distracting Villefort, even though it was he who wasn't paying attention. Haydee Haydee is vindictive, meaning disposed or inclined to revenge. " 'Do you remember your father, Haydee?' Haydee smiled. 'He's here and here,' she said, placing her hand over her eyes and over he heart" (Dumas 215). " 'I was you who, with that decree, obtained the pasha's ring as a token of his authority! It was you who sold my mother and me into slavery! Murderer! Murderer! You still bear the blood of my father on your forehead' " (Dumas 360). Haydee is vindictive because of her passion and love for her father. Fernand betrayed Haydee's father and is responsible for his death and her sorrow. Haydee loves her father and has been willing to avenge his dath since childhood. In a way, she is also playnig the part of Providnece, as she took the initiative to punish those responsible for the unfortunate fate of her family. d' Avrigny Barrois Andrea Cavalcanti Monsieur Joannes Policar Morrel is accomplished, meaning he is highly skilled. " 'The Morrels have been sipowners for generations and there was a Morrel in my regiment when I was garrisoned at Valence.' '
'That's true!' exclaimed Morrel, delighted. ' It was Policar Morrel, my uncle. He later becae a captain' " (Dumas 4). Policar Morrel is accomplished because he was skilled enough to become captain. He left behind an honorable legacy that Monsiuer Morrel is proud of. Monsieur Morrel is selfless, meaning he is more concerned about others needs than his own. " 'Blood washes away dishonor... If I live, you'll be ashamed to bear my name; if I die, you'll hold your head high and say, 'I am the son of a man who killed himself because he was unable to keep his word for the first time in his life''" (Dumas 128). Monsieur Morrel is selfless because he is aware that not being able to pay off debt will bring his family dishonor. He is willing to take his own life so his family will not have to be ashamed of bearing his name throughout thier lives. Mercedes is apprehensive, meaning she is uneasy or fearful something might happen. "Mercedes bowed her head as though weighed down by a flood of bitter thoughts. 'Does he like you, Albert?' she asked, with a nervous shudder" (Dumas 178). Mercedes is apprehensive because she recognizes the Count of Monte Cristo. Throughout the Count's visit to her house, she turns pale and becomes nervous. She asked Albert questions about him to verify his real identity, and because she doesn't want him to cause harm to her or her loved ones. Caderousse is teasing, meaning he irritates or provokes people in sport. " 'It seems to me I see two lovers walking along, hand in hand... They don't know we can see them and they're kissing!' [exclaimed Caderousse] 'Do you know them, Fernand?' [asked Danglars] 'Yes,' replied Fernand dully 'it's Dantes and Mercedes' " (Dumas 15). Caderousse is teasing because of the way he treats Fernand's love for Mercedes. At first, Fernand is rejected, but accepts the fact Mercedes can love whomever she wants. Then, Caderousse provokes him by rubbing Fernand's rejection right in his face. Fernand becomes even more angry and tries to get Edmond into trouble. Edouard d' Villefort Lord Wilmore Caderousse is greedy, meaning he is inordinately desirous of wealth, profit, etc. " 'When you betrayed your friend, God began, not to strike you, but to warn you: you fell into poverty. You were already thinking of crime, giving yoursel the excuse of necessity, when God performed a miracle for you, when God sent you a fortune, an enormous one for you who possessed nothing at all. But that unexpected fortune wasn't enough for you. As soon as you had it in your possession you wanted to double it. And by what means? By a murder' " (Dumas 341). Caderousse is greedy because he went out of his way to just to get more money. He alreeady had a fortune, a miracle performed by God, but that wasn't enough for him. Caderousse was mad enough to kill to satisfy his greed. Fernand is persistent, meaning he perserveres in spite opposition, discouragement, or obstacles. " 'I've already answered you a hundred times, Fernand; you must be your own enemy to keep on asking me...I've always said to you, 'I love you like a brother, but never ask anything more of me because my heart belongs to someone else' ' " (Dumas 11). " 'I don't care how poor you are, Mercedes! I'd rather have you than the daughter of the proudest shipowner or the richest banker in Marseilles' " (Dumas 12)! Fernand is persistent because he is madly inlove with Mercedes. He knows Mercedes and Edmond are in love, but he is not discouraged. Fernand keeps asking for her hand and will do anything to win her heart. The Count de Morcerf is cordial, meaning he is courteous, gracious, and sincere. " 'You are welcome here,' said the Count of Morcerf, bowing to Monte Cristo with a smile. 'In saving the life of our son you have rendered us a service which commands our eternal gratitude' " (Dumas 176). The Count de Morcerf is cordial because of the way he treats the Count of Monte Cristo and his other guests. Because the Count of Monte Cristo saved his son, Morcerf welcomed him with open arms. He is very polite and kind when doing this. Abbe Faria is clever, meaning he shows intentiveness and originality. " 'I've invented a preparation which makes cloth as smooth and solid as parchment. And I make excellent pen from the cartilage of the heads of those enormous hake they sometimes serve us...I dissolve some of that soot in some of the wine they give me every Sunday and it makes good ink' " (Dumas 52). Abbe Faria is clever because of the he uses his resources. He takes everyday objects he sees in prison and turns them into things to keep him from getting bored or going mad. These are also the resources he uses to educate Edmond as well. Benedetto is vicious, meaning he is readily disposed to evil. " '...it may have been Benedetto himself, said, 'Let's torture her, then she'll tell us where the money is!'... [T]hey began to hold [Assunta's] feet over the fire to make her tell them wear her treasure was hidden...she was found the next morning, half burned, but still breathing...Benedetto had disappeared and Assunta was dead' " (Dumas 197). Benedetto is vicious because he was inclined to commit an evil act for a selfish reason. Assunta eraised Benedetto and treated him like a prince, but Benedetto was malicious enough to murder her to get what he wanted. He felt no regret for this crime. Eugenie Danglars Eugenie is ambitious, meaning she is eagerly desirous of achieving or obtaining success, power, wealth, or a specific goal. " 'Why shuold I stay? So they can try to marry me to someone else a month from now? No, Louise, what happened tonight will serve as my excuse; I wasn't looking for one, but God sent me this one and it's welcome ' " (Dumas 411). " 'We have forty-five thousand francs between us, enough to live like princesses for two years, or comfortably for four. But within six months we'll have doubled our capital, you with your music, I with my voice ' " (Dumas 411). Eugenie is ambitious because she likes to be independent. She believes she doesn't need a man by her side. With her best friend, she can make her way into the world, making money off of both of their talents. Eugenie is fully confident in her plan to escape and is eager to chase her dream. Assunta Assunta is compassionate, meaning she has tender feelings. " 'Assunta had gone to Paris during my absence and claimed to child. Ah, Excellency, I confess that whne I saw that helpless litle creature sleeping in his cradle my chest swelled and tears came to my eyes. 'You're a good woman, Assunta, and Providence will bless you ' ' " (Dumas 189). Assunta is compassionate because instead of letting Benedetto go to and orphanage, she adopted him. She wantedt he best life for the child, so she raised him like the "son of a prince". Heloise de Villefort Louise d'Armilly d' Avrigny is dexterous, meaning he has mental adroitness and skill. " 'There is a poison which kills almost without leaving a trace... I have studied that poison and am thouroughly acquainted with its effects. I recognized them just now in poor Barrois and I recognized them in Madame de Saint Meran. There is a way to determine the presence of that poison: it turns red litmus paperblue and turns syrup of violets green ' " (Dumas 321). d' Avrigny is dexterous because he was quick enough to think of what type of poison was causing the deaths. He knew the exact details of its effects and how to test for its presence. Major Bartolomeo Cavalcanti Marquis and Marquise de Saint Meran Maximilien is devoted, meaning he is ardent in attachment, loyalty, or affection. " 'There are people who are willing to suffer and swallow their tears at leisure, and God will no doubt reward them in heaven for their resignation; but those who have the will to struggle strike back at fate in retaliation for the blows they recieve. Do you intend to fight back at fate, Valentine? That's what I came here to ask you' " (Dumas 289). " 'I'll never belong to another woman as long as I live' " (Dumas 243). Maximilien is devoted because of his love for Valentine. Both of them don't want Valentine's marraige contract to be signed, so Maximilien asks Valentine to run away with him. Maximilien is loyal and brave, and he will do anything to be with Valentine for the rest of his life. Signor Bertuccio Bertuccio is avengeful, meaning he wants to take vengeance on somebody's behalf. "' 'I'm going to kill you. From this moment, I declare a vendetta against you'" (Dumas 186). ''Then I rushed at him, sank my knife into his chest and said, 'I'm Giovanni Bertuccio! Your death for my brother and your treasure for his wife! My vengeance is more complete than I expected'" (Dumas 187, 188). Bertuccio is avengeful because of his vendetta against Villefort. Villefort is responsible for the death of Bertuccio's brother, and Bertuccio has sworn to take Villefort's life to get even. Marquis and Marquise de Saint Meran are loyal, meaning they are faithful to their government or soveriegn. " '...[O]ur king was truly Louis the Beloved, while their usurper was never anything except Napoleon the Cursed' " (Dumas 21). " 'Don't neglect your duty in order to stay with us. Go where the service of the king calls you' " (Dumas 23). Marquis and Marquise de Saint Meran are loyal because of their faith in King Louis. They weren't happy when Napoleon took the place of the king, as they only agreed with King Louis's policies. Marquis and Marquise se Saint Meran believed Louis was their true king. Emmanuel Herbaut Julie is grateful, meaning she's deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits she recieved. " 'And did God send you consolation in your suffering, as he does to everyone? ' [the Count] asked
'Yes, Count,' said Julie, 'we can truly say that He did, for He did for us what he does only for His elect: He sent us one of his angels' " (Dumas 218). " 'The objects inside that purse are relics of the angel I mentioned just now,' said Julie" (Dumas 219). Julie is grateful because Sinbad the Sailor saved the Morrel family. At a time when the Morrels desperately needed money, Sindbad the Sailor told them of a purse with money and a diamond inside. Without Sinbad, Julie's "angel", the business would've shut down and Monsieur Morrel would've died that day. Louise is supportive, meaning she provides sympathy and encouragement. " '...what happened tonight will serve as my excuse; I wasn't looking for one, but God sent me this one and it's welcome.' 'You're so strong and courageous' " (Dumas 411)! " '...[W]e'll take a different direction as soon as we reach the boulevard.' 'You're always right, Eugenie' " (Dumas 413). Louise is supportive because she fully encourages Eugenie's decision to run away. Eugenie is so confident in her plan, Louise barely questions her. Eugenie is Louise's best friend, so Louise will support any action Eugenie decides to take. Blacas Dandre is distraught, meaning he is deeply agitated or crazed. "The Minister of Police threw himself at the king's feet in despair and cried out, 'A terrible disaster, sire! The usurper left the Isle of Elba on the twenty-eighth of February and on the first of March he landed in France, at a little port near Antibes' " (Dumas 37). Dandre is distraught because he is panicking about the usurper landing in France. He is so worried, he drove himself mad and was practically crying at the king's feet. he learned about the usurper's landing two days after it happened. Who knows what the usurper could be doing at that very moment? Monsieur Beauchamp Monsieur de Chauteau Renaud Noirtier is threatening, meaning he causes alarm. " 'To whom is the letter addressed?' 'To Monseiur Noirtier, Rue Coq-Heron in Paris.' A thunderbolt could not have struck Villefort more suddenly or unexpectedly" (Dumas 28). " 'I told you Villefort was ambitious. He would sacrifice anything to his ambition, even his own father' " (Dumas 36). Noirtier is threatening because he poses almost as an opponent to Villfort. Villefort hopes to soon rise to power, but Noirtier is a conspirator, so he stands in his son's way. Villefort knows Noirtier is much more powerful and accomplished than he is, which makes him nervous about Noirtier being involved in a conspiracy against King Louis. Penelon Penelon is reverent, meaning he is deeply respectful. "An old man digging in a bed of Bengal roses stuck his spade into the ground and walked over... 'I believed you hailed me, Mademoiselle Julie,' he said, 'Here I am' " (Dumas 217). Penelon is reverent because he respects Julie and Emmanuel. He has known them for a long time, as he worked for Monsieur Morrel in the past. Penelon politely follows the orders he recieves becaue he has learned to show courtesy to them. Villefort is steadfast, meaning he is fixed in direction or purpose. " 'If he knows what's in this letter,' thought Villefort, 'and if he learns that Noirtier is Villefort's father, I'm ruined, ruined forever' " (Dumas 29)! " 'He's a serious- minded young man, honorable, intelligent and, above all, ambitious...He would sacrifice anything to his ambition, even his own father' " (Dumas 36). Villefort is steadfast becasue of his desire for power and honor. Noirtier, his father, poses as a threat to his goal, but Villefort is so ambitious, he is willing to sacrifice his father to reach them. Throughout the book, he reaches conflicts that have to do with bringing honor to himself and his family, and sacrifiving things in order to do just that. Sinbad the Sailor is gallant, meaning he is brave, spirited, and noble-minded. " '[T]his once touched the hand of the man who saved my father from death, us from ruin and our name from dishonor. This letter was written by him on a day when my father had made and extremely desperate resolution, and the same unknown benefactor gave this diamond to my sister for her dowry' " (Dumas 219). Sinbad the Sailor is gallant because he did a noble deed for the Morrel family. When they were in desperate need of money, he wrote them a letter to guide them to a purse with money and a diamond inside. Without him, the business would've been shut down and Morrel would've died a dishonorable man. Blacas is frank, meaning he is direct and straightforward. " 'My dear Blacas,' said the king, 'your alarm is keeping me from working.' 'And your feelings of security keeps me from sleeping, sire. My alarm doesn't come from vague, unfounded rumors, but from and intelligent, trustworthy man who has just arrived in Marseilles to tell me' " (Dumas 35). Blacas is frank because of the way he speaks to King Louis. In this excerpt, the king tells an alarmed Blacas that everything is fine, but Blacas still insists there is something wrong. Blacas knows they will be in danger, and is sternly opposing the king to make his point. Blacas doesn't sugar-coat anything and is not afraid to be outspoken, even when he is speaking out against the king. Monsieur Boville Jacopo is faithful, meaning he is steady in allegiance and affection. " 'Listen, captain,' said Jacopo, 'here's the answer to this problem: I'll stay here and take care of him.' 'Do you mean you'd give up your share of the profit in order to stay with me?' asked Dantes. 'Yes.' replied Jacopo" (Dumas 89). Jacopo is faithful because he is loyal to Edmond. Over the time Edmond was part of the crew, he became good friends with Jacopo. When Edmond hurt himself on the Isle of Monte Cristo, Jacopo offered to take care of him because he cares more about Edmond's health than his money or job. Noirtier is patient, meaning he is capable of accepting delay with equinimity. "She began to recite the letters of the alphabet, stoppng to watch his eyes at each letter. At N he signaled 'Yes.'...'All right, is it Na? Ne? Ni? No? 'Yes.'...She went over and took out a dictionary, opened it before Noirtier and began to run her finger up and down the columns. At the word 'notary' he signaled her to stop" (Dumas 247, 248). Noirtier is patient because of his inability to speak. When Valentine knows he wants something, she has to recite the alphabet and find the word in the dictionary that expresses his feeling or want. It takes a while, but instaed of getting frustrated, Noirtier appreciates her and everyone else's diligent efforts to understand him. Vasilki Teplini The Count of Monte Cristo is stoic which means that he is indifferent to sensation, or that he is free from passion and unmoved by joy or grief. The Count is stoic because he tries not to become his old funloving self, Dantes, by keeping his emotions inside by not projecting it with verbal and nonverbal communication. "The executioner raised his mace and the two assistants stepped back. The condemned man tried to stand up but the mace crashed down on his left temple, making a dull, heavy sound... Then he stoop up on the man's stomach and began to knead it with his feet. ch time he pressed down with his foot, a jet of blood spurted from the man's throat. Franz started backward and sank half-fainting into a chair. Albert remained standing but his eyes were closed and he clung tightly to the window curtain. The count was as erect and triumphant as the avenging angel" (Dumas 143). When the Count meets everyone, he keeps his anger and joy hidden. He tries not to get moved by sad or happy moments, or he tries not to explode on the people he has infinte hate for. When he first meets Mercedes and Fernand he is very stoic because he doesn't show any intense emotions, instead he is very calm as if they were acquaintances. Other identity Birthparent of Romance Marraige Put in arranged marraige __________ __________ Napoleon is ambitious, meaning that he wishes to rise to the top again and take back his position as Emperor of France. “‘I think that if the ship was empty and I had been its owner he would have tried to buy it from me'” (Dumas 4). This quote explains Napoleon’s ambition, because Dantes says that he would have tried to buy the boat from him to sail back to the mainland. Napoleon actually later in the book sails back and takes back France. __________ __________ __________ __________ Adoptive parent of __________ Friends __________ Enemies __________ Works for __________ Kills King Louis XVIII is intellectual, meaning that he has a high mental capacity. “His Majesty continued to make notes in the margin of his edition of Horace as this gentleman spoke to him.” (Dumas 35). In the first scene that the King is revealed in, he is making footnotes in his book and not paying attention to the worries of the duke in the room. He is not worrying because of his superior intellect. ----------------------------> ------------------------------------------------------------------> <------------------ KEY <---------------------------------------------------------- <---------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------> --------------------------------------------------> --------------------------------------------------------> -------------------------------------------> -----------------------> <--------------------------------- --------------------------------------------> --------------------------------------------------------------> --> <------------------------ Edouard Villefort is egocentric meaning he regards himself as the center of everything and does things out of self interest. "With the air of a child who is accustomed to satisfying all his whims, he began to uncork the different bottles without asking anyone's permission" (Dumas 209). Edouard Villefort is egocentric because he only does things that benefit himself or whatever he likes. Just like in the quote he will do anything to please himself. He usually whines when something goes wrong for him which also shows egocentricity. Ali is obedient meaning he is willing to obey and is submissive to authority. "'Ali' said Monte Cristo, 'I understand you're very skillful in throwing the lasso. Is that right?' Ali nodded and drew himself up proudly. 'Good. Could you stop an ox with a lasso?' Ali nodded. 'A tiger?' Another nod. 'A lion?' Ali pretended to throw a lasso and imitated a chocked roar. 'I understand. Have you hunted lions?' Ali smiled. 'Very well, then, listen: A short time from now a carriage will pass by drawn by two runaway dappled gray horses, the same ones I had yesterday. Even at the risk of being trampled, you must stop them in front of my door'"(Dumas 206). Ali is obedient because he willing to obey the Count and do whatever he asks. Ali will do anything to fufill the Count's orders. Valentine Villefort is very loving as well as caring meaning she is warmly affectionate and shows love to others. "Her first glance at her grandfather told her how much he was suffering and how much he needed to tell her. 'Oh, grandfather!' she cried. 'What's happened? You're angry about something, aren't you'"(Dumas 246). Valentine Villefort is very loving because she shows much affection to both Nortier, her grandfather, as well as Maximilien, the man she loves. She is very understanding and just wants the best for her family. Madame Danglars is extremely greedy(in like EVERY aspect of her life) which means she excessively or inordinating desirous of wealth, profit, treasure, etc. "'[H]ere is eight hundred banknotes of one thousand francs each, and here's a sight draft on my banker for the remainder...' ...Madame Danglars, her eyes dry but her chest swollen with sobs, picked it up and stood silently waiting for a kind word to console her for being so rich"(Dumas 457). Madame Danglars is greedy because she had an affair with Monsieur Villefort, likes to make all the decisions. Also, she complains that a million and a half francs isn't enough money to run away. Barrois is faithful, meaning he is steady in allegiance and affection. "[B]arrois, an old servant who had been in Monsieur Noriter's service for more than twenty-five years" (Dumas 244). Barrois is faithful because he has worked for Noirtier for many years. He serves as a friend and caretaker for Noirtier, as the old man's well-being is his top priotrity. Barrois could have tired, but decided to work loner to service Noirtier. Madame Villefort is determined meaning that she is firmly resoluted and that she has an unwavering, focused mind. "Meanwhile this refusal had brought unexpected hope to Madame de Villefort. She approached the old man and asked, 'Is it your grandson Edouard that you leave your fortune, then'"(Dumas 250)? Madame Villefort is determined because she will sacrifice anything for her son, Edouard, and just wants the best for him. Therefore when Nortier was writing his will, Madame Villefort couldn't help but ask if HER son, Edouard will be receiving anything. Monsieur Joannes is very persistent, meaning he is tenacious and perserveres over and over again. "'I'll go as high as fourty-five thousand, but not another sou,' said the jeweler...'As you like, my friend,' said the jeweler, 'but I brought the money with me, as you can see.' He took out a roll of banknotes and a handful of gold, which sparkled before Caderousse's eyes. Caderousse was torn by indecision" (Dumas 192). Monsieur Joannes is persistent, because he tries again and again to get what he wants, and he becomes very persuasive to get his way. Monsieur Lucien Debray is pretty arrogant meaning he is characterized or proceeded from arrogance, self importance, or entitlement. "'Do you mean to say you don't know anything about your own house yet?' asked Debray" (Dumas 172). "'Why don't you just admit that your cook is late and that, like Madame de Maintenon, you're about to give us a story instead of food? We're all amiable enough to forgive you and listen to your story, fantastic though it promises to be'"(Dumas 164). Monsieur Debray is arrogant because he seems to think that he knows everything. He gives himself the thought that he is perfect and other are not. ------------------------------------------------------> -----------------------------------------------------------> ------------> Caderousse’s wife is arrogant, meaning that she is overbearingly assuming or superior. “‘How do you know why he wants to make you talk, idiot?’” (Dumas 99). This quote is from when the priest visits Caderousse’s house, and his wife walks in and is cruel and assuming.
