George Franks - Trustee: Franks, Swindles & Gentry
Franks is a solicitor and partner in the firm: Franks, Swindles & Gentry. George was a friend of John Storm's deceased uncle: Professor Douglas Storm, and a friend of the family. He is trusted to administer the estate of his late friend, with some rather unusual clauses as to assisting John, if he takes up a challenge his uncle has set him.
George Franks is keen to get to the bottom of that matter, suspecting foul play. He does not believe in coincidences, where Professor Storm was a thorn in the side of many a government administration from his human rights work - so had many enemies in high places.
This belief, tends to be borne out by the CIA's interest in the AI onboard the Elizabeth Swann. Which, gets even more bizarre when they kidnap Cleopatra. Goerge is determined to solve the mystery surrounding the disappearance of his old friend. He keeps an open book on the subject, always on the lookout for clues.
has an office wherein there is a round table, surrounded by his collection
of armour, from the knights of old. He believes that the age of chivalry is
not dead, and that John is a modern day Knight
of the Round Table, or Knights
Templar. For sure, John's expertise with DNA
identification and computer manipulation would have qualified him as a
member of the Illuminati.
Only gold, silver and gemstones were worth anything to captains of old. The currency was easy to trade and did not corrode, so ideal to be secreted in the most inhospitable environments. Paper money is worthless, when the value can rise and fall, without anything tangible to back the promises written thereon. In the modern world, with rampant inflation and cost of living crises, we'd have to agree with the pirates.
