This wicked circus ringmaster who plotted to steal the bells of Notre Dame was really Claude Frollo's brother, Jehan. Claude never liked to talk about Sarousch/Jehan due to his wily and cunning nature which went badly against his overly rightous nature. Of course, Sarousch never liked Claude either. So when Frollo died, Chernabog approached the ringmaster and told him that he could avenge his brother's death and be the richest man in Paris if he stole the Bells and got Quasi out of the way. Madeliene, his trapeze girl, didn't like her part in the plan and eventually rebelled and pulled a Heel Face Turn. And Sarousch, a.k.a Jehan, was arrested.
