Bio:

Manuel Drake was a young, headstrong Iowa farmboy before he volunteered to join the army just prior to WWI. In the bloody trenchfighting that followed the young farmboy proved both lucky and brave as he ran the trenches to deliver messages. Such service earned him several medals, but a nearby explosion cost him his left eye and sent him home from the war. After healing up in a hospital in Massachussets he was approached by an army body about joining an expidition to the south pole. The backer of the expidition was a wealthy British ex-patriote who promised the men they would find the ruins of an ancient empire and riches beyond their wildest imagination. What they found… was something else. Of the 82 men who left on the exploration, only 14 returned, including Manuel Drake. While several of the men were committed to the sanitarium… raving and foaming at the mouth… Manuel was simply quiet. Since his return he has used his money to rent an apartment and has been spending day doing research in the library.
