Pascal is the co-protagonist of Disney's Tangled franchise, serving as the tritagonist of Tangled, one of the two main protagonists (alongside Maximus) of Tangled Ever After, the tetartagonist of Tangled: Before Ever After, and one of the two deuteragonists (alongside Eugene Fitzherbert) of the Disney Channel animated series Tangled: The Series.
It is revealed in Pascal's Story that when Pascal was about two years old he and his mother were running away from a ferocious snake. The snake kept following them and Pascal's mother became tired, so she wrapped little Pascal in a lily pad and send him floating away in a river. Pascal was devastated to know that his mother didn't survive but he decided to seek refuge. Once he reached shore he climbed up the tower but the snake was still following him. Little Rapunzel saw the cute chameleon climbing but when the snake bit Pascal, Rapunzel was angered and hit the snake with a frying pan so it fell into a bush. Pascal was wounded and turned gray but Rapunzel didn't want her new friend to die, so she used her hair's healing power to bring him back to life, and once he was alive again, their relationship grew. She even gave him a violet-colored button and Rapunzel said "you will always be my best friend" making Pascal feel special and the two friends played with each other in the tower. When they left the tower and began spending the rest of their lives in the kingdom where things started changing, their friendship lasted.
