Characters whose names are followed by an asterisk are known to have been historical figures. Cyrano de Bergerac*  The main character of the play. He is a soldier, poet, philosopher, and  scientist — a man of immense courage, versatility, and talent. He has an enormous nose and is very  sensitive about it. He is an expert swordsman and challenges anyone who mentions his nose. He  jealously guards his intellectual freedom, even though he suffers poverty. His integrity and innate  nobility of spirit are the theme of the play. Christian de Neuvillette  Cyrano's comrade-in-arms. A handsome man of noble spirit and  generosity. He is in love with Roxane, but unable to express his love in such a way as to be  acceptable to her. He is not stupid, but is actually inarticulate. Roxane (Madeleine Robin)*
