His character :

Cold and distant in appearance, Denis hides a sensitive and quite secret personality. It takes time to tame ... but it's worth trying because it's a loving and generous person. Rather dreamy, Denis does not have a disproportionate ambition and is content with little to be happy. This does not prevent him from volunteering and persevering in everything he undertakes.
