I am Inspector Javert. I am a miserable man because, in spite of my power, I do not understand love. I was born in prison. My mother was a fortune-teller, and my dad was a convict. I believe in law and order, and I think that once a criminal, you're always a criminal.
I imprisoned all the people who broke the law. Jean Valjean was a criminal and would always be. Chasing him became my obsession.
However, when the revolt broke out, Jean Valjean had the opportunity to kill me,and he didn't. I had to take him to prison, but I couldn't because he had saved my life.
Now I'm dead because I could not follow my principles anymore. Where is my dignity? When I understood, it was too late for me.
