Foil

Character Role Analysis

Christian to Cyrano

Again, we think you know the drill here, so we’re not going to belabor the point. Cyrano is all intellect and wit; Christian is all appearances. This is their main difference, but they’re foils for their similarities, too. At the end of the day, both men are painfully in love with Roxane and willing to do anything to make her happy—even at their own expense.
