The Rat. The Rat was created by Constance Collier and appeared in the play The Rat (1925) and the film The Triumph of the Rat (1927).

The Rat is Pierre Boucheron, a.k.a. “The Rat,” the youthful king of the apaches of the Parisian underworld. By chance he meets and falls in love with the upper class demimonde Zelie de Chaumet, and after various adventures retires to be her kept man. But in the sequel the course of true love does not run smoothly for the Rat, and the furious Zelie pursues him through Paris with revenge on her mind.
