Gaston is the main antagonist of Disney's 1991 animated feature film, "Beauty and the Beast". He was an arrogant, chauvinistic hunter who was determined to have Belle's hand in marriage, even by force if necessary. This obsession turned him into a ruthless, traitorous villain, especially when he found out that Belle's love was not for him, but for Beast.
Gaston is strong and handsome, and exploited these traits to the fullest. Gaston is not one to give up on his goals so easily. No matter how much Belle evades him, and however hard the humiliation he receives, he is determined to make her his wife. Gaston's view of women is extremely sexist, and while he appears charming to all of the other women of the village, such as the Bimbettes (who, being products of an upbringing in the village, grew-up to see nothing wrong with Gaston's behavior, completely mesmerized by his handsome face), Belle is the only woman in the entire town to be able to see him for what he really is from the start of the film on.
