Clandestine chief of the village of Lugdunum
It is possible to go without Getafix's magic potion and still demonstrate a heroic resistance to the Roman invader. Jellibabix, the brave Gaul our heroes meet in Asterix and the Banquet, is proof of this!
Clandestine chief of the town of Lugdunum (Lyon, a Resistance town if ever there was one), he gives his ever so precious help to the two brothers-in-arms Asterix and Obelix as they try to escape the Roman garrisons of the Prefect Poisonus Fungus. Crafty Jellibabix uses the maze made up by the alleys in the centre of Lugdunum to lose the Romans, who get lost in the labyrinth, much to their displeasure. And to help our two heroes win their incredible bet with Overanxious, Jellibabix takes care of everything and gives our Gauls sausage and meat-balls, local specialities from a town famed worldwide for its gastronomy.
All of which means that Jellibabix is entirely deserving of his place among the guests at the prestigious banquet organised by the Indomitable Gauls to celebrate the anniversary of the victory of Gergovia, in the album Asterix in Corsica.
