Kasarib, Ala. Ala Kasarib was created by Francis Ford (Lucille Love, Joe Master, Officer 444, The Sphinx) and appeared in the film The Craving (1918).

American inventor Carroll Wayles creates a new, very powerful explosive, and Ala Kasarib, an Indian inventor, comes to America to acquire it. Kasarib tries to bribe Wayles with Beulah Grey, Kasarib’s ward, but Wayles declines. Kasarib--a Yellow Peril--hypnotizes Grey, who gets the formula for the explosive from Wayles and then gives it to Kasarib, but Wayles goes to Kasarib’s laboratory, rescues Grey, and sets off the explosive, killing Kasarib.
