Captain Peacock

As a young boy born near Stratford-upon-Avon, England, in 1904, Lord Charles P. Carrion was a bit of an oddball. While his schoolmates were busy playing games and getting into mischief, Carrion was more interested in the world of ideas. He spent his days huddled over books, devouring everything he could find about astronomy, chemistry, and physics. His love for learning paid off when he was accepted into Cambridge University. But it wasn't his family's wealth or status that got him in - it was his sheer brilliance and hard work that set him apart.

  During his time at Cambridge, Lord Carrion spent most of his days immersed in academia and research. He worked and collaborated with some of the brightest minds in the scientific community. This allowed him to author several thought-provoking and revolutionary papers. These works were widely recognized and celebrated for their groundbreaking ideas and approach to scientific inquiry.

  As soon as Carrion finished his studies at Cambridge, he became a highly sought-after individual in the scientific community. Many universities and research centers were eager to have him as a lecturer. But to everyone's surprise, he turned down all offers, instead announcing his plan to write a series of science fiction novels. These novels are all based on the thrilling premise of exploring other worlds within our solar system. Get ready to be transported to exciting new realms of imagination!

 'Captain Peacock' was Lord Carrion's greatest creation. His first adventure, Captain Peacock and the lost tribes of Mars,' was a thrilling success, and Lord Carrion was over the moon. He quickly followed up with another epic tale, 'Captain Peacock and the many moons of Saturn,' but sadly, it failed to capture the imagination of readers as the first one did. Despite his best efforts, the book produced only poor sales, and his publisher dropped him abruptly. Lord Carrion fell into a deep depression, and for the next few years, he vanished from the public eye.

  But then, luck finally turned in his favor when he landed a role as a voice actor in a radio show called 'The Rascal Gang.' His portrayal of the character 'Charlie' quickly captured the hearts of listeners all over Great Britain, propelling him to stardom and opening doors to regular guest appearances on quiz and game shows. Soon enough, Lord Charles P. Carrion had his own radio talk show where he invited a diverse array of guests from fields spanning the theater, literature, science, and academia, all thanks to his diverse lifelong connections.

Illustrated in the style of a vintage Edwardian or Victorian photograph. This image is part of my 'Anicurio' collection. Each original illustration is carefully hand drawn in pencil. Once finished, I often hand age and treat them with various dye methods, to resemble an old dusty antique photograph. I want this series to suggest something that was rediscovered by you. An inherited artifact from a mysterious benefactor? Or perhaps revealed in a long abandoned attic, lying at the bottom of a chest. Buried beneath old dusty clothes and fading hand written notes.
