Character Role Analysis

Comte de Guiche

De Guiche is our clear bad guy. He gets in the way of Cyrano and Christian, he tries to have sex with Roxane, he gets Christian (and almost Cyrano) killed in battle, and he in all likelihood is responsible for Cyrano’s "accident" at the end of the play. There's also the hundred assassins thing.
