Judge Claude Frollo is a character from the The Hunchback of Notre Dame, a novel and Disney animated film.
He desires Esmeralda.
In the Disney adaptation, Claude Frollo is the Minister of Justice who works for the cathedral located in Paris, France. While the Victor Hugo's novel, Frollo is the archdeacon of Notre-Dame cathedral.
In just about every variation Frollo is given a different personality and story arc. For example, the Disney movie makes him a self-righteous judge who persecutes anyone he believes to be vermin, especially Gypsies. His lustful desire for Esmeralda is upped as well, making it more obvious than his original counterpart.
Frollo is obsessed with the gypsy, Esmeralda. He was torn between the church and his unrequited lust for Esmeralda. One night, when she met up with Phoebus, he attempted to kill him. He confronts her in the dungeon and confesses to her, proclaiming that he loves her and that he would do anything for her. When she refuses him, he decides to let her die.
- His death is seen as ironic since he fell into a hellish fire after proclaiming: "And He shall smite the wicked and plunge them into the fiery pit."
