Signare Delphine Rossignol is a character in 80 Days. She is a Senegal revolutionary.
Background[edit | edit source]
Rossignol employs her son, Captain Rossignol, as an airship captain. She is dissatisfied with the enslavement of Senegal people and wishes to start a revolution.
Role[edit | edit source]
Passepartout, if he arrives from her son's airship, is immediately brought to Rossignol upon reaching Dakar. She accuses him of being a French spy and enlists his help in beginning a revolution. Whether he agrees to help or not, she attacks him with slow-acting poison and forces him to deliver a parcel to an associate in Timbuktu named Jeanne-Marie. All other routes close until Passepartout delivers the parcel.
However, if Passepartout befriended a rubber tapper in Tabatinga and agreed to deliver a Vial of Tree-Frog Poison to a "friend" in Dakar, Passepartout may deliver it to Rossignol, who is very grateful and lets him go without further hassle.
Character[edit | edit source]
Rossignol is very hardy and proud, potentially using her status to lure Passepartout into completing her task to further her cause. Jeanne-Marie admires her also, claiming she has 'balls of iron' to go ahead and poison him.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
