Saw this somewhere and fell in love with it! Gervaise seems like he'd belong in a Victorian novel as a swoonworthy Jane Austen-esque hero, brooding away in a dilapidated castle like a Gothic Heathcliff, or being all dashing alongside d'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers. In real life though, similar-sounding Jarvis would be a better sell for me.
