Who is Dominique Renelleau?

Dominique is a Frenchman who “meets” Charles on his travels around the world.

Little did he know that the charming gem dealer is already a multiple killer – who will kill again.

Charles secretly drugged him and forced him to work for him.

In the first episode of The Serpent, Dominique is introduced as an employee of Charles Sobhraj.

Dominique is another lost soul who hopes for adventure before returning to his homeland.

When he suspected that he was drugged, he asked for his passport to be returned – but was refused.

He sees the drugs of other young travelers and begins to divine the dark truth.

He asks an indulgent Monique: “Why does everyone who comes here get sick?”

Dominique manages to get his passport back with the help of his girlfriend Nadine and has a great shot at the airport.

Where is he now?

Dominique has understandably held back since returning to France.

Very little is known about the man who could easily have become another victim of Charles.

At the end of The Serpent it is revealed that the real Dominique Renelleau is still living in France.

He is married with grown children and remains an avid traveler.

At the time, his wife, Caroline Besson, was pregnant with their second son – and Fabien’s little brother – Max, who was born after Mark’s funeral.
