Actually it makes some sense. Think about it from a different perspective: a rich man wants someone who betrayed him dead. So, he hires someone to kill them. And then that rich man needs another person killed. So he hires the same person. And then several more people need killed so the rich man starts hiring more people. Then eventually the word that this man has been pulling off assassinations near flawlessly, the rest of the underworld starts going to him to have people killed. And thus, the Order of the Black Rose was formed.

But that's an employer, not the leader, big difference.

I see that I failed to explain myself thoroughly again. I meant that this guy was originally only the employer. But as he started to gain more fame in the underworld, he became the leader. He doesn't perform assassinations himself, but rather he sends people to do it. Then he gives the person he sent a cut of the money that the employer is paying. Does that make it clearer?

I don't care about other reasoning for the leader of the Black Rose. What I think is silly is that people consider him holding a rose to be relevant to him being leader of the Black Rose. Couldn't it be something more reasonable - something romantic, perhaps?
I doesn't care, do I?

Actually, I just think it's a random ghost now. And I was giving a scenario in which it could be the dead leader of the black rose.

I really don't think it works that way, people don't make you their leader just because you employed them a certain number of times.

*Dead Leader of the Black Rose  (He clearly doesn't look like the assassin type)
*Duvalier's Father (Alder is still alive)
*Ghost Bandit  (Looks as much a bandit as he looks like an assassin)
*Tomb Raider  (I don't think Lara Croft has died in the Telepath world)
*Fizooz  (The portrait doesnt look like a guy who would be held hostage)
*Priest of Yawah (I don't even know how someone could come to this conclussion)
*Random Ghost  (Of the terrible choices, this one is the best)
*Yawah  (He doesn't look very godly)
*Ghost Boss of Crypt 3 (He looks like he could be the poet-king Azur)
*Darime (The portrait doesn't look like someone Rahel would like or love)

He looks positively sleazy, doesn't he? Maybe Craig is planning to put him into a future mission or side quest, as I don't think he fits any roles that we have seen.

So he might be significant, but we just haven't seen him yet. On the other hand, he's probably just another random ghost.

The only two choices that I see as reasonable.

I voted for Darime. I think there is no strong argument against him
Currently tied with Zack for the title of Master of Light!

Do you really think Rahel would love an older, sinister looking man who carries a rose like a snobby aristocrat?

Its true, he doesn't look like her type. But becoming a spirit does affect ones memory greatly, so his mannerisms could have changed. And the rose could symbolize romance.

But still... with eyes like that, I don't think Rahel would care about his mannerisms in real life, in other words, he looks a bit suggestive, or like he's trying to make a deal or sweet talk someone somehow.

I think he looks like he's snarling really. Look at him. His upper lip is pulled up and his eyes seem sorta angry or really focused.
