"I appreciate you recognizing your transgressions. Consider yourself forgiven, after all the media keeps us all informed, and as a captain running a business it's good to be in the know. Just don't let it happen again!"

"There is no such thing as "too many questions", only too few answers. Nothing stops the quest for truth... except possibly bullets. As I see that I was only seconds from death, I apologize for the direction my questions took us, and…"

Profile Information

Hey hey there, Captain Augustus Chelmsford at your service. But just call me Captain Aug. Really...

Name: Cpt. Augustus B. Chelmsford
Age: 29
Height: 5'11
Weight: 188

Augustus started his aeronautical career during the American Civil War. As he worked his way through the ranks he finally ended his military career as second lieutenant to the then Chief Aeronaut in the newly formed Union's Aeronautical Divison. After an unfortunate accident and some miscommunication the Chief Aeronaut found himself perished and the blame seemed to fall upon Augustus. The circumstances are convoluted at best and only a very few know of what really occurred that day.

Needless to say, Augustus spent a lot of time in New York and Boston's air yards making contacts and absorbing worldly knowledge. Eventually it came to be that Augustus decided to journey off to the island of England, his fathers birth country. It was in England where Augustus fatefully (if you are one to believe in such) took part in what some simply called The Westinghouse incident, which is a whole story in and of itself; but in the end the resulting adventure led to the death of a notorious air pirate and Augustus took the spoils of his triumph... his own airship.

Since acquiring his ship, which he has since named "Cloudbreaker", Augustus makes his own living now, transporting cargo and people from one place to another. At least that is how it appears to the majority of the masses.

From air pirate raids, fighting to reclaim captured passengers and crew from island natives, outrunning a zombie horde... there isn't much this well worn traveler of the skies hasn't seen. Stick around long enough to smell the pipe smoke, and you may even learn something.

I'll think about it. If I do decide to come, it will be with my captain and first mate as well. Send Arabella Porter an invite too.
