Professor Shep Darnock
Prof. Darnock's bust, by Adjatha
|Full name||Shep Darnock|
The owner and operator of the Thare Plantation in Mhen'ga, which can be found in the middle of the jungle.
Professor Shep Darnock is a 5'10" male human who looks to be in his late middle age, which probably means he’s a couple of centuries old at least. Dressed in a plain cotton safari suit, he has a genial, interested expression seemingly carved onto his square, beardless face. He is quite beefy and has tough walnut skin that speaks of a privileged lifetime spent mostly outdoors. His white hair is thick but well-groomed. There is no indication of any outlandish gene modification upon him, except for the sort that would eliminate such irritations as liver spots, back pain and glasses.
