Félix Tholomyès is the lover of Fantine and the biological father of Cosette, though this was never mentioned in the musical. He is not physically attractive: he's bald, has several wrinkles and has lost most of his teeth, however he is very self-confident and cheerful. Tholomyès is a wealthy student at the age of thirty who thinks much less of his relationship with Fantine than she does. His friends, Listolier, Fameuil, and Blachevelle were also paired with Fantine's friends Dahlia, Zéphine, and Favourite. The men abandon the women, treating their relationships as youthful amusements. In the book he dates Fantine for a few years, but in the musical, as Fantine says in I Dreamed a Dream, "he slept a summer by my side... but he was gone when Autumn came".

Tholomyès gives longs speeches and Courfeyrac is later compared to him. After abandoning Fantine and Cosette, he becomes a lawyer. In other plays and the movie he is tall and blonde
