Webster is the castle's writer, transformed into a dictionary. While he means well, he has a rather long tongue, often speaking out of the right moment. This leads to the other servants, particularly Lumiere and Cogsworth, to dislike him greatly. During the first segment of Belle's Magical World, he infuriates the Beast by giving unwanted synonyms to Belle's insults during a row, leading the Beast to strike him. Wracked with guilt after Belle and the Beast stop speaking to each other, he forges a letter of apology from Belle with his two best friends, Crane (a set of paper sheets) and Le Plume (a quill). He is exiled from the castle when the Beast finds out, but amends are made after Belle brings him back.
