Random Quote #82 topic: zola-dictionary, A Zola Dictionary; the Characters of the Rougon-Macquart Novels of Emile Zola, Patterson, J. G

ROUGON (VICTOR), son of Aristide Saccard and Rosaline Chavaille. Brought
up in the gutter, he was from the first incorrigibly lazy and vicious.
La Mechain, his mother's cousin, after discovering his paternity, told
the facts to Caroline Hamelin, who, to save Saccard annoyance, paid over
a considerable sum and removed the boy to _L'Oeuvre du Travail_, one of
the institutions founded by the Princess d'Orviedo. Here every effort
was made to reclaim him, but without success; vice and cunning had
become his nature. In the end he made a murderous attack upon Alice
du Beauvilliers, who was visiting the hospital, and having stolen her
purse, made his escape. Subsequent search proved fruitless; he had
disappeared in the under-world of crime. L'Argent.

"In 1873, Victor had altogether vanished, living, no doubt, in the shady
haunts of crime--since he was in no penitentiary--let loose upon the
world like some brute foaming with the hereditary virus, whose every
bite would enlarge that existing evil--free to work out his own future,
his unknown destiny, which was perchance the scaffold." Le Docteur
