Fife is a piccolo, one of Beast's servants, and a minor antagonist (later a minor protagonist) from Disney's 1997 film Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, midquel to the 1991 film Beauty and the Beast.

Personality

When the piccolo is introduced around the beginning of "Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas", he is shown to be a bit of a kissup to Forte the pipe organ and cheerfully applauds Forte's gloomy melodies. Fife accommodates Forte's rules, only to one day have his own music solo, which Forte had promised him. Throughout the movie, he appears more of a nuisance to the main characters as well as an idiot and a trouble maker. He also is shown to "fawn" over Belle from time to time. Despite his mischivous antics, Fife has a warm-hearted personality and ends up rooting for Belle and the Beast at the end, giving the Beast information on how to defeat Forte, and eventually, lives his dream of having a music solo.

Appearances

Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas

Fife is a resident of the castle. When the Enchantress curses the Beast, he is transformed into a piccolo. He is tricked by Forte into trying to sabotage the relationship under the promise of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 15 in B-flat . Fife lures Belle into Forte's room for him to tell Belle where a suitable Christmas tree is located. However, shortly after she leaves, Forte tells Fife to follow her to the tree (presumably so he can cause the ice to break with his sound). Fife later regrets this action and decides to help Belle and Beast mend their relationship. Forte decides to destroy the castle, and Fife tries to stop Forte. Forte reveals that he never intended to give him Mozart's concerto (via expelling blank note sheets). No longer loyal to Forte, Fife tells the Beast that Forte's power comes from the keyboard, and Beast uses this knowledge to kill Forte. In the ending of the movie (taking place in the present), Fife takes over Forte's job as the court composer of the castle and finally gets to perform a solo, as he's always wanted.

Trivia
