The Character as portrayed by Arthur Edmund Carewe in The 1925 Movie


"The Persian" was the alias of Ledoux, a member of the Secret Police. He worked undercover in the Paris Opera House to learn the identity of the mysterious "Phantom Of The Opera". Because he often lurked around the Opera looking for clues, many people came to believe that he was actually The Phantom. He eventually discovered that The Phantom was in fact Erik, an insane genius who had escaped from an island prison. When Erik abducted Christine Daae, Ledoux teamed up with Raoul to get her back.
