At one level, whereas enjoying his violin for his protege, Christine, her younger suitor, Rauol, seems and tried to make some calls for. At which level, with a single blow, the Phantom knocks out the youthful man, however spares his life. (Note: Don't ever interrupt the Phantom him whereas he’s enjoying his violin.)
The phantom, whose actual identify was Erik, had been the disfigured son of a development employee. Young Erik fled from his dwelling in Normandy and joined a number of carnivals, the place he realized abilities of agility, efficiency in music and even weapons. He turned superb with weapons, together with the rope. He might throw a loop, often called a "Punjab Lasso," round an opponent's neck with superb pace.
