Joly was best known as the malade imaginaire (hypochondriac) of Les Amis de l'ABC.

Info Edit

Joly is a medicine student and a member of Les Amis de l'ABC. He is one of the revolutionary students, and is a sentry at the barricade during the revolution. The only two people who can persuade him out of his hypochondriasis are Bossuet and Musichetta. Although Joly is a happy, jolly person, his hypochondriasis makes him nervous and uncomfortable a lot of the time. At twenty-three, he believed himself to be chronically ill and spent his life looking at his tongue in the mirror. He asserted that man was magnetized like the needle of a compass and in his room he positioned his bed with the head facing south and the foot facing north so that at night the circulation of his blood would not be impeded by the great magnetic current between the two poles of the globe.

He is prone to panic attacks and often gets very worried. During thunder storms, he felt his pulse. All these young, maniacal, puny, merry incoherences lived in harmony together, and the result of him being eccentric and agreeable. His caring personality is evident when Gavroche went out of the barricade to fetch ammunition for he was one of the students who tried to convince Gavroche to come back.
