The Good Mark ring is worn on the Phantom's
left hand (closer to the heart), and bears the symbol of crossed sword-hilts
in the shape of P's. Like the Skull ring, it has been part of the Phantom's
life for 400 years.
The Phantom's Good Mark is a mark of
protection. It is given to someone who had saved the Phantom's life. The
Phantom places it on the right wrist of the person he pledges to protect, and
the mark is permanent. Those who receive it, and their descendants, are
forever under the protection of the Phantom. This is a powerful gift. In some
cases, the families have adopted the symbol as a "good luck charm"
long after its true meaning has been forgotten.
He has also been known to place it (and his
protection) on a building, such as Dr. Axel's hospital, or the Castle Vacul.
