Hercule Savinien Cyrano de Bergerac, a cadet (nobleman serving as a soldier) in the French Army, is a brash, strong-willed man of many talents.

In addition to being a remarkable duelist, he is a gifted, joyful poet and is also shown
to be a musician. However, he has an extremely large nose, which is the reason for his own self-doubt.

This doubt prevents him from expressing his love for his distant cousin, the beautiful
and intellectual heiress Roxane, as he believes that his ugliness denies him the
"dream of being loved by even an ugly woman."
