The REAL name of the Opera Ghost, although he is known as the Phantom of the Opera to the people of his opera house. Said person is sadistic, reclusive, and a psychotic genius that likes to live in the dark, damp cellars of the opera house. He is a master of music, architecture, and numerous other things, including using a punjab lasso. He is hideously deformed (Either on half of his face or his whole body, in a corpse-like matter, if you're talking about the original.), but is also extremely sexy. Even his corpse-looking version is still able to seduce Christine.
He is well known for dropping notes and stealing away young (preferable Swedish) sopranos. Also, he laughs maniacally.
