Gaspard Paradizo is the father of Minerva and Beau Paradizo. He appears in The Lost Colony.

He owns a chateau on the Vence side of Tourrettes sur Loup, twenty minutes from Nice. Tourrettes is a small artisan's village perched on the lower slopes of the Alps Maritime. The Paradizo chateau was farther up the slopes, on a flattened peak below the snow line.


Gaspard is a very rich man and expects the best from every one of his employees in the Paradizo mansion. He has been shown to display a sliver of bravery that is easily outmaneuvered by his fears. He is also a cosmetic surgeon of Brazilian descent. Gaspard's wife ran off with the mansion's gardener approximately a year before the events of The Lost Colony.


"Minerva, cherie, I think we need to take a step back from this. Perhaps quit while we're not too far behind."
The Lost Colony [src]
"I think, Minerva, that we have gone too far in this matter There are otherworldly forces at work here. Danger follows these creatures, and I can no longer allow you to place yourself, or others, in harm's way. We fought a noble fight, and I am so proud of you that my heart may burst; but now this must become a government matter."
The Lost Colony [src]
"Please, cherie. You know I love you, and I respect your genius, but just for once, couldn't we go with the pony option? Couldn't I just get Justin Timberguy to play at your birthday party?"
The Lost Colony [src]
"If you hurt her Kong..."
― Gaspard talking to Billy Kong [src]
