Henri Richard Maurice Dutoit LeFevre (pronounced Ahn-ree) was an 8-year-old orphan from France who came to America with his parents, who died of plague on the voyage. The ship's captain exploited Henri afterwards in order to pay for his family's passage, making the boy do grueling work as an indentured cabin boy with no respect or mercy. Eventually, James and Moses helped Henri sneak off the ship and the boy found a home and family in Benjamin Franklin's workshop.



Though a well-intentioned boy, Henri was commonly found getting into trouble, no matter how often he is told to stay out of it; he quite enjoys the fun, excitement, and attention it brings. As Sarah commented in the episode "New York, New York, "Sometimes I think Henri believes this is all just a big party for his benefit!". He frequently expressed his distaste at learning to read English (or studying in general), as he preferred his native language, and would rather be out playing. Henri also had quite an appetite as he was always hungry, even when he had just eaten.
