Basile found in the bowels of the library.
- "I will find you, you cunt."
Basile Giroux is the angry one of the three Suitors and the second to appear. His rage is justified, however, and thus Basile appears to have retained the most sanity of the three Suitors, and simply wants to exact retribution upon the woman who ruined him. In the phonograph recording one can hear an exchange between him and Justine. Basile regains consciousness after being drugged and finds himself restrained in some strange device. He's clearly not in the mood for Justine's "games", but nevertheless is forced to read from a script she prepared for him, which states "her beauty is blinding". At that moment, an uncredited weapon or method (possibly the hot poker in the nearby fire) damages his eyes, and he screams. Justine laughs at him, and Basile curses her for blinding him and threatens to kill her. He appears in the basement area after leaving the library section, whispering threats as he hunts for Justine. When he appears, all the lights in the basement will be blown out, and the door will slam shut, locking you in.
Once spawned, Basile does not de-spawn and will continue to patrol the area looking for the player. It is necessary to sneak past him in order to continue. However, this isn't too difficult as long as you do so without making too much noise, since he is blind. Once the player passes a group of chairs near the exit of the area, the Suitors' chase tune will begin playing and Basile will automatically be alerted of the player, however, at that point you're close enough to the exit that it usually won't make a difference. It is possible that Basile was a carpenter, as entering the empty prison cell between the other two cells (where Aloïs and Malo were being held) causes flashback sounds of sawing wood and hammering. Other elements in the game that hint to Basile's former career are that Aloïs' note stated Basile was strong, and if the player enters any other cell, it won't produce flashback sounds that require physical work (apart from the racquet sounds in Aloïs' cell and violin sounds in Malo's). It is notable that several bricks in Basile's cell were removed, but not without it causing injury, as there is blood around the brick slots and on the bricks themselves.
