She is the daughter of the Thenardiers. When they move to Paris, she
falls in love with Marius. Marius doesn't notice Eponine other than as a
friend. When her beloved becomes enraptured with Cosette, she helps him find her.
When Marius goes to the barricades, she follows. Marius does not want Eponine to be
in danger, so he sends her with a letter to Cosette. She does return though, and is
shot by the French army. She is seen as a martyr by the revolutionaries and lives on
to later guide Valjean to salvation.
Every word that he says is a dagger in me. in my life, there
is no one like him anywhere, anywhere, the way he is.
I've got you worried, now, I have. That shows you like me
quite a lot.
Sometimes, I walk alone at night when everybody else is
sleeping. I think of him and then I'm happy with the company I'm keeping. The city goes to
bed and I can live inside my head.
In the rain, the pavement shines like silver. All the lights
are misty in the river.
You will keep me safe and you will keep me close and rain
will make the flowers grow.
