Hatherly was trained as a hydraulics engineer. As a result, he has long been fascinated by the canals of Mars.

Lord Herring, or "Kipper" as he's known to his friends, is the flower of English nobility. That is to say, he is the product of generations of inbreeding. He would have been dead or in disgrace long ago if not for the intervention of his manservant, Wentworth. Even Wentworth couldn't prevent the full force of Lord Herring's father's wrath after his last escapade, however, and so Lord Herring is now bound for Mars to hide out for a bit.

The child of English missionaries in China, Mr. Smith was hidden by his housekeeper at a monastery when his parents were killed in an anti-Christian uprising. Raised as a monk, he left China when his Temple was destroyed by the Manchus. His only possession is a locket that was once his mother's. He is presently employed aboard the RMS Majestic as a dishwasher.
