French term or phrase:
Pere Fouras- Character from "Fort Boyard" television show
Explanation: I didn't know who this character was but here's some info on the show in other countries (including the UK where apparently he's known as the Professor and later as Captain Baker).
May or may not help!
The Professor (Geoffrey Bayldon, series 1-4) is an eccentric scientist who has become mad over the years due to being kept prisoner by Boyard in the Watch Tower. His task is to ask the contestants riddles, which if answered correctly, will give the team a key or clue word.
Captain Baker (Tom Baker, series 5) is the replacement for the Professor and whose character is an insane sea captain held by Boyard.
