Sir Henry Fitzwilliam-Smythe III, Esq. - Edward G


A lucrative career

The association of Sir Henry Fitzwilliam Smythe with the failed coup of Emperor Ferrino and the necromancer Duke Verte inevitably tarnished the reputation of the great explorer however he weathered the political storm on the back of his good standing within the Glorious Equation and the discovery of the crystal caves within the moon. He set about exploring the cave system he had discovered after the City’s move to the moon and from this set up a number of lucrative business operations. Visitors flocked from dimensions far and wide to visit the fabled ‘crystal caves’ made from gems of a clarity close to glass in more colours than imagination could provide. Not only was the tourism potential immense but the crystals themselves turned out to be incredibly useful for the construction of resonators in many technological devices and the name of ‘Fitzwilliam Smythe’ and the 'The Honourable City Moon Crystal Company' soon became a watchword in many a technologists lab across the Mulitverse.

On the back of his crystal cave enterprises, Sir Henry funded a number of expeditions to worlds far and wide. His adventures became as notorious as his caves famous - every adventure leading to more fabulous treasures and a greater wake of destruction. With each new exploration he brought back more priceless artefacts from across the multiverse making his airship museum into the best example of cross cultural heritage that history has ever seen. He published a number of books and papers in his time bringing him to the pinicle of his field, including an account of his experiences with the great Emperor Ferino and his short-lived but glorious regime…

Sir Henry never retired but continued exploring for many decades before finally disappearing on his last expedition into the great forests of the Anuba Swamp in search of the fabled Eye of Gresth.

Quite the reputation

“…And it is with great pleasure that I announce today the unveiling of the Tradaumus Icon (dated to 457 AF) found by Sir Henry Fitzwilliam Smythe III in his latest expedition to the world of the Ankini people. We the curators of the “Sir Henry Fitzwilliam-Smythe III permanent aerial collection” would like to thank Sir Henry for all his hard work in recovering this artifact. We would also like to say thank you to the 237 students who accompanied him on this trip and made the recovery possible, and pay tribute to the 211 who sadly did not return. However their sacrifice was not in vain as we now have the opportunity to study the icon in better detail than ever before…”
