Beyond the Mountains of Madness
People’s first impression of Albert Gilmore is his scarred, discoloured face; Gilmore was one of the last people to face German flame throwers in the Great War. As a result, he has no hair on his head nor any external earlobes. Despite his disconcerting appearance, he is an excellent mechanic, and he looks forward to a long stint in the cold. Optimistic to a fault, Gilmore is hard working and will remain upbeat about the expedition.
