Captain Phoebus de Châteaupers
is the Captain of the King’s Archers. His name comes from Phoebus, the Titian
of the sun.

Despite being of noble
birth and very handsome, he is also vain, untrustworthy, and a womanizer. He
saved Esmeralda from Quasimodo and she fell in love with him. Phoebus made a
convincing show of returning her affections, but merely wanted a night of passion.
Esmeralda arranged to meet Phoebus and tells him of her love for him, and he
convinced her that he feels the same way about her. He is in fact engaged to
another woman, the spiteful socialite Fleur-de-Lys de Gondelaurier. Not only
that, he has agreed to let Claude Frollo spy on his meeting with Esmeralda.
This decision proves his undoing, since as the couple prepare to have sex, the
jealous Frollo attacked Phoebus by stabbing him in the back. Frollo makes a
quick get-away and Phoebus was dead by homicide. Esmeralda, being the only one
present, was presumed to be the killer. Phoebus, however, is not dead and soon
recovered from his injury. But this does not stop Esmeralda from being tried
and sentenced to death for his murder. Phoebus could have proved her innocence,
but he remained silent.
