Personality who is head of a town Council. He is the only person of note present in the crib, which is, in general, composed of modest folk. His costume is characteristic of his position: a tall, grey hat; a frockcoat; a red, white, and blue sash tied round the waist. He carries a red umbrella sign of respectability and prosperity in Provence. He also carries in his other hand a lantern to light his way.
