I would love to, darling. I’m getting sleepy but here’s a little:
Renard is an orphan, and has no memories of his parents. He doesn’t really think about them anymore, though he did when he was a child he would imagine that they had loved him and died saving him from a fire, or he’d been kidnapped and they didn’t know how to find him. As he got older he decided there were two options; they were dead or they were alive and didn’t want him. The second seemed more likely.
He grew up learning that there were two ways to prove you were a man; being able to overpower others, and sex with women. Even from a young age he was able to hold his own in a fight. He was twelve when he had sex with a girl from the village. She thought it meant something. He was pretty cruel in disabusing her of that notion.
Sex for the most part was either for physical pleasure or for getting information, and it was rare that he slept with someone more than once. He has, a few times, slept with men for information. He was not attracted to them, but neither was he disgusted.
There are very few people in the world he cares about at all. His value on human life in general is pretty low. Sex does not have an emotional component at all until it does. He’s never loved anyone like he loves Belle, and his love is overwhelming. He would die for her, kill for her, or try to do neither. Try to be a man that she wants him to be. Or, in movie canon it’s Electra he loves so completely that he will kill himself to give her what she wants. Either way his feeling as so intense it’s like all the love he never felt for anyone for years is focused on one person.
Sophie is HIS and if you hurt his daughter he will literally tear you apart.
Renard is a name that was given to him after he killed a man. The police found the man in his own panic room. Renard is clever, like a fox, and the whispers about the new young assassin were that the name fit.
And it’s 3 am so I better stop there for tonight.
