Eli "Big Daddy" La Bouff is a character in The Princess and the Frog. He is Charlotte La Bouff's doting father and a wealthy sugar baron regarded as the most powerful man in New Orleans.


Eli is one of the kindest people in New Orleans, a kind-hearted and doting parent, a charitable man, and is well loved by his community. In fact, he pays Tiana and her mother for the services they provide and can be seen giving a huge tip to the boy who sold him his newspaper. Eli is the one who has spoiled Charlotte. Yet despite not being good on disciplining her, he does show some ability to control her, even if slightly.
