After studying natural history, paleontology, microbiology, ornithology and divinity at Cambridge, Winston Percival Smythe started his grand tour of Europe with his chaperon Cedric Dingleton Ponceworthy. The sail across the Channel started well. The pudding was excellent. The sherry notes were of cherry oak and smoked pepper. The company was distinguished and loquacious.
But then the storm struck.
The sherry glasses toppled over, spilling sherry across the mahogany floors. This calamity was followed by the candles, which set the sherry ablaze. The guests ran for the decks and were buffeted by waves and wind. Ponceworthy was thrown overboard, as were the rest of the guests, along with the crew.
Fortunately, Winston Percival Smythe had also taken courses on the nautical sciences, engineering and the art of coal shovelling, so he was able to keep the ship sailing. In all of the hullabaloo, he was blown off course and eventually found his way to what he would eventually discover to be the Island of Shartak.
The boat was summarily sunk by a giant squid upon arrival. Smythe managed to escape, swimming to the island.
Fear not, Winston Percival Smythe is a man of science! He views his new circumstances as an opportunity to study the evolution of the flora and fauna of the land of Shartak, and the customs and theology of the native peoples.
