The Phantom of the Opera

When she was a little girl, Christine's father passed away. Before he died, he told her that he would send her an Angel of Music to be her spiritual guide.

When Christine became a part of the Paris Opera, she was mentored by an unseen entity that she assumed was The Angel of Music. After the lead singer Carlotta was given a hoarse throat by this "angel", Christine was given her part. Her performance attracted the attention of her childhood friend Raoul, who decided to marry her.

Christine kept her relationship with Raoul a secret from the Phantom to avoid angering him, who would invite her into his secret lair as a way of earning her trust and attempting to make her fall in love with him. When Christine saw the Phantom's true form as a masked man, she was surprised at first, then scared after seeing his true face. The Phantom was consumed by jealousy when he found out about her relationship with Raoul, and demanded her to stay with him and be his wife after her next big performance.

Right after, the Phantom kidnaps Christine, so Raoul chases after them. The Phantom tortures him until Christine kisses him, giving the Phantom something he never had before: compassion and love. The Phantom is so touched by Christine's selfless nature and actions that he releases Raoul, deciding to let the woman he loves to be free to choose her life. Christine would later marry Raoul.
