I wonder if they make diamond underwear.
~ Sarousch while seeing the La Fidele.

Sarousch is the main antagonist of The Hunchback of Notre Dame II.

He is unscrupulous, manipulative, flamboyant, and completely in love with himself, he is the owner of the Cirque de Sarousch, a travelling circus that uses carnies to rob the spectators blind.

He was voiced by Michael McKean who also played Ian Peek in Batman Beyond.

Personality

Sarousch is an extravagantly vain career criminal and circus ringmaster. He is nowhere as vile or cruel as his villainous and contemptible predecessor, Judge Claude Frollo, but he is still a selfish thief and kleptomaniac willing to commit kidnapping and murder for his goals to be fulfilled. Sarousch is narcissistic, presumptuous, and completely in love with himself, he is constantly seen admiring his reflection in the mirror and even says "I'd kiss me but then I'd fall in love" which is a homage to the Greek God Narcissus who actually fell in love with his own reflection in the river.

Sarousch took in a young girl named Madeleine who was caught stealing from him, he is constantly seen putting her down and rarely shows her any affection and just wants her to "stand there and look pretty" and only cared for her as long as she completed whatever he wished for. When confronted by Captain Phoebus he places all the blame on Madeleine for his crimes showing no love in his heart.

Sarousch is very shallow, only wanting Madeleine to act as a pretty face and completely ignores her talents, he also describes Quasimodo, the Bell-Ringer of Notre Dame as a "hideous monster" When the situation calls for, Sarousch can be quite ruthless and egotistical, as he threatened the life of Captain Phoebus's son so he could make an escape with La Fidele.

History

Years ago, when a starving street kid named Madeleine attempted to steal from Sarousch and begged not be turned over to the authorities, Sarousch agreed that, in return for food and a place to stay, the girl would work as his assistant in magic acts.

One day, the Cirque de Sarouch arrives in Paris to steal La Fidele, a priceless, jewel-encrusted bell. Sarousch sends Madeleine, now a beautiful young woman, to search Notre Dame and find out which bell is La Fidele. When Madeleine returns and tells him she doesn't want to go near the tower again because she met the hideous bell-ringer Quasimodo, Sarousch blackmails her into helping by reminding her of their deal.

During the circus' first show, the performers steal jewelry and gold from the audience while they watch Sarouch's disappearing act. Sarousch then sends Madeleine once again to find out about La Fidele, which she does by going out on a date with Quasimodo into the Church of Notre Dame. During the date, Madeleine sees Quasimodo's kindness and begins to fall in love with him.

The next day, Sarousch has Madeleine take Quasimodo for a walk while he and his men steal La Fidele. When she attempts to stand strong and refuse her master, he threatens to harm Quasimodo if Madeleine doesn't obey.

Phoebus, who is investigating the missing jewelry and gold, comes to Sarousch's tent and finds some of the stolen goods. Sarousch lies by saying that Madeleine is responsible, claiming that she is a born thief. Phoebus is easily duped by Sarousch and leaves to go find Madeleine. Sarousch then goes with his men to the Cathedral to steal La Fidele, but unknown to him, Phoebus and Esmeralda's young son, Zephyr, and pet goat, Djali, has followed them to the Cathedral and witnesses their thievery. The duo secretly follow them onto Sarousch's boat underground.

When Sarousch discovers Zephyr and Djali, he takes Zephyr hostage, but Djali manages to escape and runs off to go and find Esmeralda, Phoebus, Quasimodo, and Madeleine. When Djali brings them to where Sarousch is, Pheobus closes the gates to the entrance of the under-bridge and orders Sarousch to give up, but the magician shows that he has Zephyr and threatens to hurt him if Phoebus doesn't let him pass safely. Phoebus grudgingly opens the gate and allows Sarousch to pass, but just as Sarousch is about to escape with Zephyr, Madeleine, with a little help from Quasimodo, manages to stop him by using her tightrope skills to rescue Zephyr while Phoebus' guards arrest Sarousch and his men.

Sarousch unsuccessfully tries to talk his way out of being arrested, and what happens to Sarousch after he is arrested remains unknown.

Trivia

  • Sarousch is considered one of the worst Disney villains, especially because of how popular his predecessor is.
