Interests: Archery, Rock climbing& hiking, reading & research.
Occupation: Recently graduated Archaeologist.
Also worked several part-time jobs as a student to help pay her way through
university, including bar work.
Background Info: A bit of a workaholic, Lara is an unassuming and rather bookish young woman, making her way through life in search of meaning and direction
after the disappearance of her parents while on an expedition. She is a product of a privileged childhood, and was initially sheltered from many of the harsh
realities of life. Growing up, Lara spent time travelling with her parents on
archaeological expeditions. She developed a worldly outlook and a passion for ancient mysteries. The search for Yamatai marks her first job after graduating from university.
Although it is her first time as a full crewmember, it is not her first time on
the Endurance. She spent time in her early adolescence on the ship when her
father used to hire Roth for expeditions, and took several smaller trips more
recently as an intern when she could get time away from her studies. Her best
friend Samantha and the crew of the Endurance are the closest thing to family
that Lara has.
She possesses a powerful sense of moral (if not physical) courage. Lara is
clever, resourceful and determined. When push comes to shove, Lara’s loyalty to
her friends outweighs her fear for her own safety.
Nationality: Portuguese, Japanese citizenship. English and Japanese speaking
Occupation: Documentary Producer/Translator, but receives regular money from her rich family.
Interests: High living, clubbing, spending money,travel and adventure
Background Info: Samantha’s mother is a Portuguese model who was working in LA when she met Sam’s
father, a media mogul from Japan.
Growing up she moved a lot, not just down the street, but between continents. As a result
Samantha was often the outsider in school, and gained attention by being a bit
of a wild child.
Samantha is a budding documentary filmmaker and like Lara has a passion for uncoveringthe untold stories of the world. Despite
her rebellious streak, Samantha has extremely expensive taste in clothes. Sam
really can’t understand why Lara refuses to touch her fortune, and sometimes ribs her about it, but she doesn’t let
it get in the way of their friendship.
Samantha and Lara share a feeling of being out of place in the world and feed on each
other’s thirst for adventure.
Nationality: British (Sheffield/Southern Yorkshire)
Occupation: Captain of The Endurance, Freelance salvage and treasure hunter, ex military.
Interests: Rock climbing, hiking and wreck diving.
Background Info: After serving two
combat tours with the RMC (Royal Marine Commandos) Roth left the military and
put his specialized skills to use as wreck-diver and freelance treasure-hunter.
Roth traveled the world, earning a reputation for toughness, competence, and a
willingness to bend inconvenient laws restricting traffic in historical
artifacts. Those qualities attracted the attention of wealthy private
collectors including Lara’s parents. For several years, Roth accompanied
Richard Croft on over a dozen treasure-hunting expeditions, acting as a guide
and, when necessary, bodyguard.
Roth has modeled his style of leadership on that of his hero, the explorer Ernest Shackleton. The welfare and
safety of his crew is paramount to Roth and he prides himself on instinctively
knowing who is going to make a good crewmember. He is also a hands-on leader
who knows how to boost the morale of his shipmates, have fun and remain both
optimistic and realistic.
Dr. JAMES ‘Jim’ WHITMAN
Occupation: Lead archaeologist, author and TV presenter/documentarian
Interests: Glitzy showbiz parties, book launches, dining in the best restaurants, and expensive travel.
Background Info: Dr. Whitman studied at
Harvard and is both an expert in Archaeology and Anthropology. He also took his
PHD at Cambridge University in the UK and taught at many schools around the world. However, over the last few years
Whitman has moved into TV series and documentary making and became quite a
popular presenter with a successful range of tie-in books. This has made him
both a golden-boy and a black-sheep to the archaeological community.
The former for increasing exposure and interest in archaeology and the latter for ‘selling
his soul to TV’. Dr. Whitman has had a bit of a run of bad fortune and only
recently emerged from a messy divorce.
His TV series is also in danger of not being renewed unless he finds some new and exciting angle; a problem that he’s
not keen to share with the rest of the crew. He privately hopes that the trip
will give him material for a new TV series and, along with Sam’s footage, the
commissioning editors will come crawling to him.
Nationality: New Zealand/American
Occupation: Cook and general ships dogsbody.
Interests: Fishing, the outside, inventing new recipes
Background Info: Jonah was born in New Zealand, but raised in Hawaii by his maternal grandmother. As a
young man, he traveled back to his home country to serve in the army. His
strength and almost preternatural ability to detect danger made him a popular
member of his unit. And his ability to prepare and cook almost anything didn’t
After sustaining injuries in the line
of duty, Jonah was honorably discharged and went to work as a chef in his
sister’s café in Ngapuhi. While in New Zealand, Roth encountered Jonah
dockside carrying four crates of seafood at once. Impressed by his strength
(and later his cooking), Roth offered him a place on the Endurance.
Occupation: Ex-cop turned mechanic
Interests: Tinkering about with engines
Background Info: Joslin ‘Jos’ Reyes
grew up in one of the roughest neighborhoods of Queens, New York.
She’s straight talking and no nonsense, but has warm side she doesn’t share
easily. She is also fiercely loyal and someone you really wouldn’t want to get
on the wrong side of. After being accused for the murder of a local gang
leader, Reyes was suspended from the NYPD. Due to a natural affinity with
engines, she re-trained and found work as a mechanic.
Reyes and Roth have known each other for 10 years, and on occasion she works on his ship as chief mechanic. Reyes
has a 6-year-old daughter, Alisha. Alisha often lives with Reyes’ sister when
she’s off working with ‘Uncle Roth’. Reyes hates being away from her, but Roth
pays better than any garage she’s ever worked for. Getting back home to her
daughter is always Reyes’ main motivation. One day she’d like to make enough
money to open her own garage and spend more time with her daughter. Because of
Alisha, Reyes won’t sacrifice herself for anyone, but will still put herself in
danger for people when her cop training kicks in.
Occupation: Ship’s technician.Also a very skilled hacker and electronics geek.
Interests: Hacking, specifically defacing websites for kudos or hacking online gambling
sites for fun and profit. Reading up about all the new tech stuff,
Bit-torrenting everything and gaming. He is also an avid conspiracy theorist.
Background Info: Has made a living
largely through legally dodgy and flawed avenues, but only doing things he
considers ‘victimless crimes’ although his definition of this is pretty wide.
genius.” Despite his impressive technical and scientific background, Alex is
the most “out-there” member of the crew. Alex’s MacGyver-like talent for
jury-rigging technical devices and being somewhat of a ‘machine whisperer’ is
very useful to the survivors. He’s a bit of genius and could probably be
enormously successful in the technology field if he actually applied himself
Alex knows this about himself and thus tends to do the very bear minimum amount
of work needed to do the job and always “just squeaks by” as a result. Alex is
a bit of a joker, and although he’s quite witty, he can be pretty crass. He
also has a charming side and is more sensitive than he likes to let on. Alex
has a fascination with conspiracy theories, alien abduction stories, and urban
legends of all sorts.
Occupation: Helmsman and first aid officer.
Interests: Football, cats, Irn-Bru.
Background Info: Grim grew up in ‘The Gorbals’ of Glasgow, Scotland,
one of the toughest places in the UK. As a child he always felt a
kinship with water and often built makeshift boats out of junk and taught
himself to sail on the nearby river Clyde.
There’s nothing about sailing and water that Grim doesn’t know, and he has
sailed all the oceans of the world, which included stints working for the
Merchant Navy where he met Roth.
Roth and Grim found a kinship and stuck together after their service. They traveled the world and took any job
that paid well, all of them dangerous and most of them legal. Grim and Roth
saved each other’s skin on numerous occasions. When Roth purchased the
Endurance, Roth wouldn’t trust anyone else but Grim at her helm.
