to:

* BrainlessBeauty: Played Straight and Defied.
Defied. He's nowhere near as smart as Cyrano is, but he's also shown to be much smarter than others give him credit for.
* HiddenDepthsCannotTalkToWomen: This is more of his problem than actually being stupid.
* HiddenDepths: He's actually a decent guy whose quite a bit sharper than you may initially think.


Added DiffLines:

* InformedAbility: He's regularly referred to as stupid throughout the play but, while he's nowhere near as witty as Cyrano, proves to be cunning in his own right when [[LoveMakesYouDumb not in front of Roxanne]].


Added DiffLines:

* LoveMakesYouDumb: He becomes tongue-tied whenever he's in front of Roxanne, needing Cyrano to feed him lines from the shadows just to speak properly.


Added DiffLines:

* NoRespectGuy: Frequently called stupid and only admired for his good looks, to the point where even his admirers admit he's probably nothing more than a pretty face. Roxanne also immediately becomes annoyed with him the moment it's made clear he's not good with words.
* PrettyBoy: Pretty much the only real "skill" that he has is being incredibly good looking.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuy: Probably one of the few characters in the play who never acts like a jerk.
