A brilliant inventor… A prolific writer…
A chance meeting between Nikola Tesla and Jules Verne catapulted the world into a new kind of power. Using meteor fragments from a comet named Uriel, they created a world powered not by combustion but by steam. The incredible inventions that followed launched the world into an industrial revolution ahead of its time… a steampunk revolution.
While Tesla’s inventions were designed to ease people’s day-to-day burdens, Thomas Edison’s ERP Corporation used their power and influence to ensure people paid for their modern miracles.
One man brought hope to the people as he pursued Tesla’s dream of invention for the everyday person. His exploits were legendary, his crew infamous, and his airship a vision of the future . . . Corsair and the Sky Pirates!
Name of character to be interviewed: Corsair
Why was this character chosen for this interview?: He is the story’s main character and the captain of the airship Galeru.
Let’s delve into the Secrets of Captain Corsair
Question 1: Why did you decide to become a sky pirate?
Answer: I wanted to follow Master Tesla’s dream of new technology for everyone, not just for the corporate rich lining Thomas Edison’s pockets. Freedom, peace, and prosperity are for everyone, and I intend to spread the wealth, even if I have to lie, cheat, and steal to do it.
Question 2: Your airship is called the Galeru. Why such an unusual name?
Answer: Galeru is the name of the mythical rainbow serpent from aboriginal mythology. It’s meant to invoke fear in my enemies and a vision of hope in the eyes of the people. Seeing the “serpent of the sky” with the Jolly Roger flying from the tailfin lets people know who they’re dealing with.
Question 3: Tell me a little bit about your crew.
Answer: The crew of the Galeru is a diverse group of individuals from all walks of life. My first officer, “Kiki” Mori, is a ronin as beautiful as she is deadly. Our pilot, “Eager” Kingsman, is the best in the air for a blind man. The Scarlet “Fox” is the best Shade in the business, able to infiltrate and discover everyone’s secrets. Besides being an Italian lover, “Dash” Castello is my weapons expert and sharpshooter. “Knox” Roming is a former military man and my heavy weapons specialist. “Bronx” Jones is a Vernian genius and my Chief Engineer, and “Moon Crow” is our ship’s doctor, expect tracker, and an Apache medicine man. I couldn’t do my job without them.
Question 4: Where do your adventures take you?
Answer: All over the world. From our recent heist over the English Channel to the ruins at Luxor in the Egyptian desert, the skyline of New York City and the streets of Harlem, to the American Southwest. But no matter where we go, Odysseus Station over the Öræfajökull Volcano in southeastern Iceland will always be home. Master Tesla built it as a way station for sky pirates, refugees, and anyone searching for freedom from the corporate grip of Thomas Edison and his ERP Corporation.
Question 5: Do you have any secrets, Captain Corsair?
Answer: No comment. This isn’t the right place for that conversation.
I’ve always loved reading interviews featuring a character from books of fiction and honestly, captain Corsair did not disappoint.
