24601, Typing the Characters from Les Miserables

Les Misérables | Do You Hear the People Sing? - YouTube

We begin this post with an apology to our single, French listener who tunes in faithfully each week. Lance and I (Kate) don’t speak French. Nor do we have a grasp on French pronunciations. We did our best… and that probably wasn’t very good.

With that out of the way, let’s jump into the content of the episode- ENNEAGRAM!

Les Mis is a musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic novel. With such a rich ensemble cast, it makes for excellent character study.

In this episode, we discuss:

Fantine- whose eneagram number we couldn’t discern. Sorry Fantine.

Enjolras- Who we believe is an 8, who aptly portrays the drive and rashness of many young 8s.

Eponine- who we believe is probably an enneagram 2.

Marius- who was harder to type. Do you see him as a 6, 7, or something else?

Cosette- who Victor Hugo didn’t write with much personality

and finally…

Jean Valjean and Javert. Javert is DEFINITELY an enneagram 1, but we were less certain about Jean Valjean. We think a case can be made for him as an 8, 2, or possibly even a 6. What do you think?
