"He was a charming young man, who was capable of being terrible. He was angelically beautiful. He was Antinous, wild."
"He was officiating and militant; from the immediate point of view, a soldier of democracy; above the movement of the time, a priest of the ideal.— Les Miserables, III x IV x I

The captain of the piece was a handsome sergeant of artillery, very young, blond, with a very gentle face, and the intelligent air peculiar to that predestined and redoubtable weapon which, by dint of perfecting itself in horror, must end in killing war.
Combeferre, who was standing beside Enjolras, scrutinized this young man.
"What a pity!" said Combeferre. "What hideous things these butcheries are! Come, when there are no more kings, there will be no more war. Enjolras, you are taking aim at that sergeant, you are not looking at him. Fancy, he is a charming young man; he is intrepid; it is evident that he is thoughtful; those young artillery-men are very well educated; he has a father, a mother, a family; he is probably in love; he is not more than five and twenty at the most; he might be your brother."
"He is," said Enjolras.
"Yes," replied Combeferre, "he is mine too. Well, let us not kill him."
"Let me alone. It must be done."
And a tear trickled slowly down Enjolras’ marble cheek. Les Miserables, V x I x VIII

It took me a while to decide what to do with some random photos I had edited, and I didn’t want to keep spamming your dash… so a collection it is. Excuse my ugly mug, but the degeneration of Enjolras, from idealistic revolutionary to a man whose hand is forced and chooses to kill for the sake of what he’s created — to further his desired revolution and ultimately regrets his actions, is something of great intrigue to me. I pondered this greatly when trying to decide how to portray the character, and with a little help from my photographer I do hope I did something right…
