Daughter of an inventor (Maurice) who has a strong taste for the bizarre, Belle has inherited a little something that makes her different from the other girls in the village. While the villagers are relatively superficial, our heroine has a deep fascination with books. Surely thanks to her attraction for the books, this makes Belle is cultivated and intelligent. She favours the personality of a person rather than physical appearance, which infuriates Gaston, the handsome boy of the village.
When her pet horse Philippe returned without her father, Belle did not hesitate for a moment and requested her horseman to take her to his father. In spite of her fear, she entered the haunted castle her horse took her to, only to find her father, imprisoned and ill. A hideous Beast arrived, and Belle offered to take the place of his father to becoming a prisoner. Marked by her love for her father, the Beast accepted and released Maurice. He took Belle to a room in the castle, which would henceforth be his prison, telling Belle that the castle is his, and that she could go everywhere in it, except in the West Wing.
Despite the dirty character of the Beast, Belle managed to break the mask to see what he really is. A friendship began to form between the two. A friendship which, if it were to become true love, would break the curse and transform all the inhabitants of the castle back into humans.
