Jean Prouvaire is a character from the 1862 Victor Hugo novel Les Misérables and its subsequent adaptations. He is a member of Les Amis de l'ABC - notably the only one with a canon first name - and a shy but brave poet. Whereas "Prouvaire" was the most common way to refer to the character in fannish spaces before the 2012 movie, his nickname "Jehan" has become more common post-movie.

Common Pairings

Jehan is most often shipped with Courfeyrac or Montparnasse in the fandom that appeared after the 2012 movie, while Bahorel is a popular choice for him in the brick-centric part of the fandom. In Enjolras/Grantaire pining fics, it's common for Jehan and Grantaire to have a fling, or to at least be friends.


  • In Modern AU, Jehan will almost always be depicted as genderqueer and/or non-binary.
  • Jehan is usually depicted with long light hair, often reddish.
