Kingdom Hearts χ
When Maurice falls ill, the Beast allows Belle to leave the castle so she can help him. They are ambushed by Rabid Dog Heartless, but Player rescues them. Belle asks Player to return to Beast as she accompanies Maurice home. After he recovers, he realizes that Belle enjoyed her time in the castle.
After he and Belle learn that Gaston seeks to slay the Beast, they return to the castle to aid the latter. However, Gaston notices them while attacking Beast, who is refusing to fight back, and summons the Enraged Elk Heartless to attack them. Player has Maurice and Belle proceed forward, staying behind to defeat the Heartless. After the death of Gaston and the Beast has regained his human appearance, Maurice cheerfully observes Belle and the Prince dancing in the ballroom.
Maurice is a short, portly man with pale skin. He is balding with white hair, a large white mustache, and bushy brown eyebrows. He wears a light yellow-green shirt with its sleeves rolled up under a long brown vest with large pockets and a dark green cape clasped at the throat with a round gold brooch. He wears olive green breeches with a brown belt buckled with gold. His stockings are mismatched, one light brown and one green-striped, and he wears loose brown boots.
Maurice first appeared in Walt Disney's Academy Award-winning film, Beauty and the Beast, voiced by Rex Everhart. He is an eccentric inventor whose misunderstood ideas have made him the laughingstock of the village in the eyes of all but his beloved daughter, Belle. When she trades her freedom to the Beast in exchange for her father's safety, Maurice desperately tries to save her, but fails to reach the castle and collapses amidst a ferocious blizzard. The Beast, having fallen for Belle, frees her so that she can save her father. The two later return to the castle during Gaston's siege in order to help the Beast. Once Gaston was defeated and the curse on the castle was lifted, Maurice is able to live out the rest of his life, knowing his daughter has found happiness with her one true love.
