The individual known as the world's most prominent avenger.
Popularly known as the "King of the Cavern" or the "Count of Monte Cristo".
Although imprisoned on the hellish If Tower (Château d'If) due to a false charge derived from an unscrupulous conspiracy, he did not fall to despair thanks to a mind of steel, and the story goes that he eventually acquired the treasure of the Monte Cristo island and swooped down upon Paris-- dragging down many leading figures that reigned over France - that is, the people who once deceived him - into hell.
The stern way of life; the revenge tragedy that concealed his identity; the love and covetous affection towards his lover Mercedes, who was trampled on and snatched away; and the journey that resulted in his reform due to anguish and regret are applauded by the people - not only from France, but from all over the world - and he is remembered as "the most famous revenger in the world".
The story of the King of the Cavern is treated as a literary creation by Alexandre Dumas (pere), but it has been confirmed in modern times that the "Abbe Faria" who guided Edmond when he was imprisoned on the If Tower actually existed...
