The Phantom is an identity used by a family of crimefighters. During the sixteenth century, Christopher Walker was the only survivor after a gang of pirates attacked the ship he was on. Chris swore to dedicate his life to fight piracy, greed, cruelty and injustice of any kinds as the Phantom and made the jungle of Bangalla his home. His son took over the identity as the Phantom, and so did all of Chris’ decedents. Eventually, the Phantom became known as the Ghost Who Walks since many started to believe the Phantom was an immortal creature who protected the jungle, something the Walker family used to their advantage to spread fear in the hearth of criminals. It was the third Phantom who made people believe he was his grandfather and immortal since he had trained as an actor under William Shakespeare.
