Who am I? Just a conscience!
Hey, howdy, hey! The name's Sephy, and I wished upon a star from I practically live here.. My other imaginary friends include Helen, Jack-Jack, Héctor. Gaston and I are so very eager to join the Worlds of Disney circle of life!
Character name: Gaston LeGume
A very manly, not to mention handsome Human
Movie: Beauty and the Beast
Custom title: Positively Primeval
Why'd you pick this character? I find Gaston one of the few villains that is realistic in the sense that anyone can experience someone like him in the world (even if he doesn’t acknowledge that he’s a villain and thinks he’s a hero). Also, I think most of the things that come out of his mouth are hilarious in the sense that he actually believes in everything that comes out of his mouth. He’s terrible and I do NOT agree with anything he says about women (I wonder how he feels about his rper being a woman?..xD ) so please don’t misunderstand..but I love mocking him and feel like I gotta stir the wod pot with some more baddies.
Character appearance (try to get at least 2 or 3 sentences for each section)
Hair description: Gaston has long, raven hair down to the middle of his back that is always pulled back at the start of his widow’s peak into a ponytail with a ribbon tied around it, known at this time in the 18th century as “queue”, the French word for “tail.”
Facial description/mood/expressions: Gaston has large blue eyes underneath his thick raven eyebrows. His nose is angular but proportionally small on his broad, angular face, demonstrating his cheekbones. Let's not forget that no one has a swell cleft in his chin, like Gaston! Gaston will mostly be found wearing a conceited grin bearing his perfect white teeth on his face unless he is met by some strong opposition or someone with peculiar mannerisms that would leave him perplexed
Clothing style: Gaston usually wears a red tunic shirt that rests down on his upper thighs with a golden yellow collar. He sports a thick brown belt right over it on his hips, and the belt buckle is gold. Underneath his red tunic shirt, he wears black legging pants with his thick brown boots worn over his pants by his strong calves. At times, he’ll wear golden yellow gauntlets while he goes hunting.
Body build: No one’s as burly and brawny as Gaston! Not a bit of him's scraggly or scrawny. Why, he even has biceps to spare! No one’s neck is as incredibly thick as Gaston, and every last inch of him is covered with hair!
Any unique traits (optional): No one’s UNIQUE like Gaston!
Original character analysis (In your own words and please be thorough)
Born with physical features and strength that are considered handsome and appealing by society, along with popularity and wealth, Gaston’s personality is sadly lacking in depth when it comes to quality. He is essentially an insufferable, spoiled, narcissistic lug that believes he is the most amazing, most handsome man to ever tromp around the flat earth (oh yeah, he’s one of those people), who never had to take “no” for an answer before meeting Belle. His arrogance knows no bounds, and he’ll brag about being able to do anything anyone can do, but better. Despite how rude, aggressive, and manipulative he can be, Gaston thinks that he is truly the town hero that everyone reveres him to be. Unlike most villains, Gaston will be able to do anything (even good things sometimes) as long as it’s in front of people he cares about (especially Belle) because it’ll make him look good. Essentially, if anyone wanted him to do something, they could just challenge him by saying that he wouldn’t be able to do it, and you can watch him take that challenge and do it to prove that he could do it better.
If he doesn’t get his way, Gaston will resort to cheating or doing cheap-shots in order to win anything it is that he is challenged to do. Easily angered, he'll be quick to throw a punch or hit someone before asking questions as to whether it was a misunderstanding or not (because that's too much thinking!). A sore-loser, he’ll become immature and eventually pouty like a child, but he can easily be cheered up if anyone kisses up to him. Despite how illiterate and unintelligent he is in trying not to think too much and passing big-worded insults as compliments, he actually does plot for ideas – from planning out his wedding with the lack of marriage proposal, to plotting to throw Belle’s father into the asylum. It is perhaps indeed a dangerous past-time for Gaston to think for this reason, as most of his ideas are selfish and cruel.
Despite all the girls falling in love with him, the superficial Gaston is known as a heart-breaker because he only has eyes focused on one person: Belle, the most beautiful girl in town. He is adamant and relentless in his ways to have her, and won’t even look at anyone else the same way. He’ll even get jealous if anyone tries to take Belle away from him or if Belle were to show endearing feelings for anyone else but him. The relentless sore-loser can’t stand losing to the point where he’ll do anything to win Belle back – even fight a Beast- and ultimately die trying.
“Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young man lived in a tiny village. Although he had everything his heart desired, the young man was spoiled, selfish, and unkind..”
The young man, Gaston LeGume, was born with a military lineage that extended..well, he doesn’t want to think any further than his father because that’s too much thinking for a character bio for Gaston. Essentially, his military father taught him how to fight, how to shoot a gun, how to use a bow and arrow, how to hunt, where to stick a knife to carve up the meat, how to gain muscle mass by starting off with 4 dozen eggs, and how to fight like a man. Meanwhile, his mother was a passive homemaker, like every wife should be (*cough* wrong).
While his father would be away on military tours, he would always leave Gaston with the words “be the man of the house,” while he would be away; so, the young Gaston did exactly that, taking his father’s place in practicing to be the town hunter. With his father gone and his mother being passive with the mentality that “boys will be boys”, Gaston learned quickly that he got away with anything he wanted to do with no one to discipline him for it. Gaston’s behavior even extended to the rest of the town, who knew well enough not to mess with Gaston without fearing what his fierce military father would do if he were to come back and find out. The young Gaston soon became spoiled with that belief of getting anything he wanted, never being used to taking ‘no’ for an answer.
His father later retired from the military to own a tavern called Le Pub while also being a town hunter, teaching Gaston the ropes shortly before his father’s health declined due to disease (from the amount of eggs he ate on a daily basis probably). The young Gaston watched his mother taking care of his father by massaging his feet and making his father’s final moments the best moments shortly before his father passed away. With his father’s death, Gaston realized that he couldn’t have that commanding presence anymore. Therefore, the young lad decided to train himself to join the military, exercising even more than he usually did, increasing his egg count to 5 dozen eggs just to get big and strong for the military. As fate would have it, however, he never did end up fully joining the military when he heard news about Portuguese marauders that were heading towards their little town. No one scares off Gaston! Gaston got on his black horse and riled up the townspeople to battle in order to defend their little town. His ability to shoot with his bow and his gun, as well as his close-combat ability, allowed him to help fight off the Portuguese from their little town. Gaston was now venerated as a hero to their little town without even needing to be officially a part of the military, adored by all, and settled for being the town hunter while taking over the tavern that his family owned. The town hero was soon at an age where he had to pick a suitable wife, especially when his mother died shortly after his father passed away. Thankfully, he was blessed with being the most handsome guy in town, so he had plenty of choices with the way that all the women fawned over him.
All the women except Belle, of course.
Of all the women, Gaston wanted Belle to be his wife. He fell for her ever since the day he first set eyes on her. Despite the numerous times she managed to get away from his advancements, his desires for her still remained, especially after seeing her become more beautiful than ever! It only made sense that the most handsome guy in town marry the most beautiful girl in town! He couldn’t understand why Belle didn’t see it either. It didn’t help that Belle couldn’t see past her book though; the woman was practically sticking her nose in a book all day instead of paying attention to more important things – like him! It wasn’t right for a woman to do that! A woman having ideas and thinking was just unheard of! What was worse was that Belle’s father was known as the town lunatic, though he tried to defend Belle against even Lefou that would say that her father was crazy in efforts to win her charm. She didn’t even say anything about it though, she just went after the crazy old loon herself when the house looked like it got shot up by another crazy invention of his. Well, Gaston had more important things to do anyway. Like planning out his wedding! Dressed in his best attire the following day, Gaston was able to gather all of the townspeople and get them to decorate the event and prepare for the best wedding ceremony in town.. all he needed now was just to propose to the girl!
Gaston summoned up all his charms for Belle that would make any girl fawn for him, even telling her about her dreams coming true: Having 6-7 boys playing with the dogs while his latest kill would be roasting up in a fire, and her as his little wife massaging his feet! What woman wouldn’t give to have that?! Well, just as he was trying to kiss her at the door and proposed that Belle should say that she’ll marry him, Belle instantly opened the door, causing him to fall into a pile of mud in front of the whole town! Right on his wedding day! That kind of public humiliation was something that Gaston was not used to, and he was completely down about it – not even beer would help at this point! Lefou and the rest of the townspeople managed to get his ego back up, and Gaston was committed to making sure that Belle WILL be his wife one way or another!
It was then when that crazy old Maurice came in for help, raving about a beast locking Belle in a dungeon. There were no beasts and there were no dungeons! While the rest of the townspeople mocked the man, Gaston did nothing to help him except to humor him. Belle wasn’t here for Gaston to feel the need to defend her, so he had no one to impress. Instead, he offered to help Maurice out – out in the literal sense of throwing him out of the tavern into the cold weather. He couldn’t have that crazy old man giving that sort of talk in his tavern, even if he was Belle’s father. Suddenly, that made the wheels in his head turn as thought for a moment, which was a dangerous past-time to do during this time period. Perhaps he can talk with Monsieur D'Arque to have Maurice committed to the Maison de Lunes asylum and offer to help Belle prevent Maurice from being committed IF Belle agreed to be his wife. He sent LeFou out to get Monsieur D’Arque to meet him in the middle of the night, paying the elder man a large bag of gold to hear him out until they both had an agreement.
Who knows where Belle and Maurice went, but their house was empty for some time, which meant that Gaston’s plan would have to be put on hold until they would return. Thankfully, he knew his devoted LeFou would always obey him, so he commanded LeFou to stay by the house until they would come back. As soon as LeFou said that they did return, Gaston’s plan was finally set into motion. Monsieur D’Arque came to their home to pick up Maurice on the claims that he was raving about a beast like a lunatic.
Gaston offered to assist her with clearing up this misunderstanding only if she agreed to marry him, but she refused again! No matter, her father would be locked up and he was sure that she would come to her senses after missing him for some time! Unfortunately, Belle went running into the house and came back with a mirror that appeared to be enchanted by witchcraft! Gaston stared in shock upon seeing the beast through that mirror, the very one that Belle and Maurice seemed to be raving about.
While Belle spoke so fondly of that monster, Gaston felt jealous of how she spoke about that beast in that way and not with him! It was almost like Belle had feelings for that monster! That was when Belle said that HE was the monster! It was clear at this point that Belle was as crazy as the old man! What did Belle know of beasts when he was the town hunter?! As the best hunter in town, he knew all beasts were the same, and now he was not going to be satisfied unless the Beast’s head was mounted on his wall!
Gaston used scare tactics and over-exaggerations about the beast to manipulate and convince the townspeople to come to his side, having Belle and Maurice locked up in the cellar, while he would mount his black horse and lead the mob to storm the castle. After Gaston assisted the men into lifting the large tree log to break down the door, the door was suddenly opened. Gaston didn’t care for the treasure that the castle had in store, telling the townspeople to take anything that they can find, but the beast was his! This was personal for Gaston. He was determined to kill the beast and take back Belle. The Beast refused to get up and fight him though. Gaston grabbed a part of the decoration and used it as a mast or a club to put the Beast out of his misery.
When Belle called out from below though, that was when the Beast changed much to his surprise and the Beast began fighting back, grabbing the club before Gaston could even hit him with it. Gaston was frightened a little, but tried to fight him off, jealously mocking the Beast’s love for Belle when she could have someone like him and boldly declaring him to fight instead of hiding him. Just when Gaston declared that Belle was his, Beast finally managed to get him in a choke hold position with just one grip of his mighty paw. Gaston pleaded and begged the Beast to let him live, to which the Beast actually lowered him down safely and told him to get out. However, this wasn’t over. Gaston was not about to be the laughing stock of the town as the town hunter with a Beast bellowing orders to HIM! He was not about to leave this castle empty handed and allow this Beast to live! So, as the Beast began climbing up the tower to meet Belle, the fact that Gaston lost the battle of the Beast and was losing Belle to this Beast just exacerbated Gaston’s anger even more enough for him to grab his hunting knife as he climbed the tower after the beast to stab the beast from behind, right where he knew would kill him. If he couldn’t have Belle, no one could! Unfortunately, when the beast jolted in pain, Gaston to lost balance and yelled in fear as he fell down the perilous heights of the castle..
Until he landed in the Disney parks.
Why, marrying Belle and having 6-7 strapping boys with her in a rustic hunting lodge, of course!
Strengths & abilities:
No one uses weapons like Gaston! Weapon mastery use of shot gun, knife, and bow and arrow. He’s strong enough to break something apart in order to make a weapon out of it though.
No one’s confident like Gaston!
No one’s wealthy like Gaston! Unlike the rest of the town, Gaston never complains about the price of things. He’ll pay for anything with ease. He’ll even easily dish out a bag of gold coins if he needs to convince someone to do something, indicating that he has enough to even give that away so easily. He is also the only one in town that has a horse with the exception of Belle.
No one’s a “town hero” like Gaston! Gaston will actually do nice things for others as long as it makes him look good in front of people he cares about. If he were trying to impress Belle, he’d even defend her father against the town. If she’s not around though, then you can forget it and he’s likely to go along with whatever the rest of society believes.
No one fights like Gaston! Close, hand-to-hand fighting abilities – though he will cheat and bite to win
No one aims like Gaston! Gaston has deadly aim when it comes to range weapons, so it's best not to be an animal around him if he were to have his ranged weapons (I've never seen him miss, but it's certainly possible).
No one hunts like Gaston! As a skilled hunter, he is adept with tracking and hunting all types of animals, as demonstrated by his "trophies" on his wall. Once he is on the hunt, he will never stop or give up until it's over, much like how he treated the Beast in stabbing him and essentially how he treats Belle.
No one sings and dances like Gaston!
No one juggles like Gaston! Gaston is adept in juggling multiple items at the same time, which is pretty impressive.
No one’s strong like Gaston! He’s the strongest man in their small town, though he’s not as strong as the Beast. He is capable of kicking the Beast off of him though. He can lift 3 people on a bench and can also break off a stone to use as a weapon.
No one’s popular like Gaston! His popularity allows him to easily rile up townspeople to get him to join him. Ask his fans and his five hangers-on!
No one plots like Gaston! Although thinking is discouraged because it is such a dangerous past-time, when those wheels in his head finally do turn, he is capable of having his schemes carried out pretty well.
No one persists like Gaston! Once Gaston puts his focus on something or someone, he will do anything to get it without paying attention to anyone else around him. Though he is a heart breaker for the rest of the girls that want him, he is a one-woman kind of man and will only settle for Belle.
Narcissistic – He believes he’s the most handsome man, and everyone feeds into it to make him believe that it is so. As such, he is susceptible to flattery. It's almost like he has ADD when it comes to his reflection because he always has to stop in the middle of talking or whatever he's doing just to admire himself in it. That can easily be a distraction.
Arrogant – He believes that he is better than the rest
Braggart – He will boast around saying that he is better than the rest
Rude – Not only does he just tromp around and put his muddied shoes on the table, and even on top of someone’s book, but he even kicks off the shoes! He also doesn’t have very good manners around women. He forcefully tries to kiss or marry before even asking, though it would only be to Belle and no one else.
Anger Issues/Aggressive – Gaston has anger issues that don’t even stem on understanding at all (because he doesn’t understand much to begin with). He gets angry easily if someone insults him (that he is capable of understanding is an insult) and spills something on him, and would even resort to fighting that person for it regardless if that was an accident. He’ll also be prone to throwing chairs or anything that gets in his way.
Overconfident/Delusional: He can be so overconfident and delusional that he would fully believe that anyone would like him despite having no proof that they do like him. He’d even go as far as not even paying attention to the evidence that someone actually dislikes him, still fighting for Belle against the Beast even after Belle said that she’d never marry him. He doesn’t need proof to know that everyone loves him.
Jealousy – Gaston gets jealous when the girl that he loves is with someone else. He hates hearing any affectionate talks unless it’s about him, and he’ll fight the other person – even a beast- to win that person back.
Superficial – He only loves beautiful things, like him, and won’t even settle for anyone less than himself. He wants no one else but Belle.
Manipulative – He will be willing to manipulate people into believing him or devise a cruel scheme against someone to convince them of something he wants
Easily manipulated/Quick to accept challenges – If anyone wants him to do something, they just have to challenge him and he’ll do it to prove that no one can do it better.
Immature/Pouty – If he doesn’t get what he wants, not even beer will cheer him up.. but perhaps a theme song about how great he is will.
Illiterate and unintelligent – Don’t expect him to read any books without pictures, spell, or understand big words that are insults.
Sore loser/Makes cheap shots – He will always prevent himself from losing by throwing the game on the floor or backstabing people (literally) just to get the upperhand and win.
Relentless – While it may be a good thing to have someone not give up, it’s also a fatal flaw in that he does not accept defeat and will ultimately die trying. He can’t handle losing.

Anything to add?:
I'll consider taking his weapons away or having some super stop him if he does have his weapons.. as much of an oaf as he is, he does have good aim and he did pretty much kill the beast in the end, so I don’t want him to kill the animals that we have here.
