Role in the film
Zephyr first appears in Quasimodo's room, to which he and Quasimodo play Touril, and then his parents come in and tell him to slow it down, to which he rightfully obeys his parents. They then notice the bell named La Fidèle.
Zephyr soon observes that the circus is coming to town. While watching the circus, he decides that he wants to join. He later sings I'd Stick With You with Quasimodo before he falls asleep and returns to his parents. Through this song, Zephyr played a role in uniting Madellaine and Quasimodo as the latter observed them and discovered Quasimodo's kindness.
Zephyr later follows Sarousch, the evil ringmaster, into the cathedral and watches him steal the bell. Realizing his father was right about the circus, he follows them to discover their plans for the bell. Zephyr stows away on their boat but is discovered by Sarousch, the child threatens them by telling them Phoebus is his father, which causes Sarousch to make plans with this information.
When Phoebus and the guards come to arrest Sarousch, the thief reveals he has taken Zephyr captive and threatens him. Worried for his son's life, Phoebus has the guards stand down and Sarousch nearly escapes with him but both Madellaine and Quasimodo save him. With Zephyr safe, Phoebus has the guards take Sarousch into custody before having the bell returned.
At the end of the film, Zephyr watches Madellaine and Quasimodo kiss before he rings the La Fidèle.
