From: The Phantom of the Opera
Age: Probably late teens, early twenties.
Personality: Raoul is a softspoken, personable man, but as the Viscount of Chagny, holds great power. He tries to use that power to woo the girl he loves, Christine Daae, but, y’know, she’s being blackmailed by the Phantom of the Opera and threatened with drowning in under and all that.
Like Marius, Raoul is a hopeless romantic, and will do anything to get the girl he loves.
Skills: I’m not sure, but I think the book said he was a decent singer. He definitely is in the musical (<3). He also has all the skills needed for one of his status–mainly bookwork, I believe.
When you think about it, the Phantom of the Opera is similar to Les Miserables in that there’s a tragic love triangle– two people love each other dearly and there’s a third, less desirable person trying to catch the attention of one of the starcrossed lovers. And then the third person dies, and the two lovers get a happy ending.
In Les Mis, it’s Marius and Cosette with the tagalong Eponine. In Phantom, it’s Raoul and Christine with tagalong Erik.
So sad. So tragically sad. Now I’m going to Disneyland.
