Mr. Ravelle was formerly a concert pianist, who after being let go from the orchestra discovered the symphony of death which would kill all who played to it. He decided to exact his revenge on those who fired him by sending them the song and knowing out of curiosity they would play it ending their lives, but he was stopped by Mr. Scarlet.
