Vicomte Sébastien de Valmont is a character from Choderlos de Laclos' 1782 novel Les Liaisons dangereuses, better known to those of us on the 'verse in its 1988 film adaptation Dangerous Liaisons. Valmont is the quintessential libertine, and as such has flourished in the oversexed world of the sueniverse. He is rapidly becoming the sexual presence through which all other characters relate. Sort of like the Force. Of sex. Or Kevin Bacon.

He is played by Kris, who feels that in motivation at least Valmont is her opposite.



Much of the mystique of verse!Valmont's character is provided by his portrayal by John Malkovich, the asymmetrical, accent-challenged American actor. At any rate, his every utterance delights Kris to a ridiculous degree, and in appearance, mannerisms, and voice he's virtually inseparable from the character, in her mind.
