In “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” Esmeralda is a dancer who lived in hidden catacombs in Paris. She’s an outspoken, compassionate woman who looks out for others—she was one of the few to show kindness to the deformed Quasimodo—and considers her pet goat, Djali, a confidante and assistant. She alone protested against sinister Frollo’s reign, and despite his trying to get back at her by having her arrested, the quick-thinking Esmeralda outsmarts him every time.
