"I like heights. I'm the greatest rock climber in the world, you know."
―Le Chèvre's introduction to his roommates

Jean-Paul, or Le Chèvre is an operative of V.I.L.E. and a former classmate of Carmen Sandiego's at V.I.L.E. Academy.


Le Chèvre is a tall thin man with slicked back black hair and dark skin. He wears silver earrings and a slick bodysuit with mauve accents. He also wears finger-less gloves and stealth shoes.


At first, when Black Sheep met Le Chèvre, he seemed confident and gruff. In agility based classes, he was shown to be skilled, but a bit impatient due to his headstrong nature. When Tigress, Crackle, Black Sheep, and El Topo got detention, they gave themselves code names. Jean-Paul called himself Le Chèvre.

When he graduated, he became more distant towards Black Sheep. When the Cleaners were bringing Black Sheep back to the island after the foiled Morocco heist, Le Chèvre shot her a disapproving glare.

If someone bothers him, he usually retaliates by insulting or scolding them. Le Chèvre scorned Paper Star for disobeying protocol, declaring that he has completed more successful missions than her. When El Topo revealed information to Shadowsan, Le Chèvre punched his shoulder to quiet him.

However, he does have a caring side, as shown when he warned Carmen to abandon her mission in the Boston Tea Party Caper; he asked her to stand down so he wouldn't have to hurt her. Ultimately, he abandoned his camaraderie towards Black Sheep after Carmen refused to abort her mission.

Le Chèvre is an acrobatic expert, but prefers to rely on his skills and simple tools like nets and ropes even when other, higher-tech equipment could do the job faster. In Who in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, he claims he is the greatest rock climber in the world, attesting to his confidence in his own abilities.

"You cannot outclimb a goat!"

In To Steal or Not To Steal, he acted very prideful when the ‘great Carmen Sandiego‘ required his help.

After VILE's arrest by ACME, he and El Topo give up their lives as VILE operatives, settle down, and open a food truck together. Despite his gruffness, Le Chèvre cares deeply about El Topo and worries for his "dear boy" when El Topo's safety is at risk.










  • His code name means "The Goat" in French, and he's repeatedly compared to one, both by others and himself.
    • He may have gotten the idea for his code name from Coach Brunt, who affectionately calls him a mountain goat.
      • The grammar of his name in the show is incorrect. "Le Chèvre" translates to "Goat Cheese" in French, whereas the correct translation of "The Goat" would be "La Chèvre."
  • Throughout the series, Le Chèvre mostly goes on missions with El Topo and prioritizes his partner's safety over completing their objectives. Dr. Bellum even calls El Topo Le Chevre's "dear boy".
  • Duane Capizzi confirmed that he and El Topo are a couple in an Instagram Live interview.
  • In origami class, he attempted to make a paper goat.
