Quasimodo was a small hunchbacked turtle that was found by the publishers of Contes Dessinés when she was still very young. They were so touched by her small size and hump on her back that they decided to give her the name Quasimodo, in reference to the famous character from Notre-Dame de Paris.
Quasimodo did not like her name and preferred her friends to call her Dodo. She felt that her name reminded her too much of her hump and wanted to be treated like any other turtle. Despite this, she was very attached to her friends from Contes Dessinés and enjoyed spending time with them, whether napping in the sun or playing in the tall grass.
Quasimodo was a very secretive turtle and liked to hide in books, especially those that talked about adventures.
