Three Characters In Search Of An Adventure: Professor Grenvale

.

Professor Fred Grenvale is a Professor of Biology at Big State University. He is also a well known explorer and collector of new and undiscovered species, both plant and animal. He has traveled all over the world.

Fred was married once, in his early 20s, but his globe hopping explorations did not sit well with his social climbing bride, so he was divorced by his 27th birthday.

Recently, Fred has been considering an expedition to an unexplored area of the Congo, where rumors of strange large beasts are common. He is being spurred on in these thoughts by his star student…

Three Characters In Search Of An Adventure: Audrey Books

Audrey is a bit of a rebellious young woman in 1922. She wears men’s clothes, steadfastly remains unmarried and is a champion for women’s rights. She is also, above all, a lover of science.

Three Characters In Search Of An Adventure: Nat Ingram

.

Nathaniel Osbourne Ingram comes from an old money family out of Philadelphia. Fact is, they own a pretty good chunk of the city. His family has high expectations for Nat, once he “gets those ideas about gallivanting all over the world” out of his system.

Nat is a totally average looking fellow. 5’8”, 150 pounds, brown hair and eyes. He could be a bank manager, a butcher or just a guy on the street, except he’s much better educated and cultured than most gents.

When he met Audrey, Nat was recently back from an expedition to Costa Rica with a couple of archeologist. He was almost immediately smitten with Audrey and was excited to hear of Professor Grenvale’s expedition idea. He has since told Audrey that he will bankroll the whole thing.
