Za-la-Mort. Za-la-Mort was created by the Italian creator Emilio Ghione and appeared in over 90 films and plays from 1915 to 1947, beginning with Za-la-Mort.

Za-la-Mort is a Lupin. He is a kind of Robin Hood, living in the worst slums of Rome and robbing the wealthy to help the poor. Za-la-Mort has a sentimental and even romantic side, but he is capable of cruelty when his enemies deserve it. He dresses elegantly, usually in a tuxedo, but wears a mask of human skin to conceal his true face. He lives with and is the physical double of the beautiful Za-la-Vie, and eventually they adopt Leo, an orphaned child.
