After he attended the grammar school in Kent. He joined the Royal Navy as a midshipman at the age of 20. Till he reached his lieutenant exam he served onboard of the H.M.S Hannibal. At the age of 35 he got the opportunity to join the Impérial Pulgian Navy** Adriam stayed In Apulia, because of a nice young girl he fell in love with. But soon he found out, that the girl only cheated on him, and he was left behind with a broken heart and unable to return back to england. Soon he was promoted to commander and was able to command a bigger sloop of war. From this time on the contacts to his family back in Kent was lost. He learned nothing of the birth of his brother and his mother's death. After a succesful mission at the Harbour of Brest he was promoted to Captain and was sent on a bigger ship for the west Indies. He had to stay in Jamaica for nearly 17 years before he was allowed to return to Apulia. In the Caribbean, he was distinguished by a number of successful operations. For this he was knighted. He became the first Briton, who was knighted by the Emperor. After that he got command of S.M.N Santa Ana and was sent to the blocade of Brest again, to support the british ships. There he met Captain Sir Edward Pellew and had is first contact with his younger brother........

**(it's fictional, I know, but here the Italian county Apulia is a own Isle in the Mediteran sea ruled by a Emperor. And were England's allies in the struggle against Napoleon. They lost a great part of their navy and got help from their allies by sending yound willing officers to Apulia. *I swear, It's the only fictional part here.*)

The lines of that pic did not belong to me.
He was made with the Regency Hero Dress up Game by *savivi [link]§ion=&global=1&q=historical+hero#/d1oj4iz so the the lines are by her. I only added some details. I've drawn the lines down on paper and inked, then colored it with copic markers.
