Who is your favorite minor character?
Wait! From which version?
From the book, the Persian gets my vote. It doesn't seem fair to call him a minor character since he played such a big part, but he's hardly mentioned throughout the first half, and I want to talk about him, dang it! He's the voice of reason, the real hero of the story, and he's just as mysterious as Erik himself. I love his nobility, and how he was willing to risk his life to help Raoul rescue Christine. I hate that he's so overlooked! While my opinion of Susan Kay's book has changed drastically since I reviewed it, the Persian still remains one of my favorites in that, as well. He's true to the original: nobody's fool, the only friend Erik ever had, and the most straight-up guy of the piece. He's awesome!
