Steer your path through life by our GOLDEN COMPASS the quest for eternal happiness
Storm and Dan Hawk at the helm of the Elizabeth Swann, under missile
attack from CIA
George Franks is a great friend of John Storm, a Trustee appointed by his lifelong chum, Professor Douglas Storm, to look after his nephew. Knowing that there would be tough times ahead for the ocean adventurer, who on occasion was known to ruffle few feather of those in authority. Especially with his lobbying antics.
It comes as no great surprise to George, held to be one of the world's finest legal brains, and a cunning and tenacious advocate, that John would end up in an international court, or at least be the subject of multiple claims from different jurisdictions.
Surely enough, Jamaica, Spain, Panama and the United Kingdom, make claims against the discovery of one of Captain Morgan's thirty-six ships, in a location that John refuses to disclose, citing his Article 10 and 11 human right, as per the Universal Declaration, the right to a Fair Hearing, and to be Presumed Innocent. But this is of course, civil litigation.
George was at first convinced that John had no claim to the treasure trove, but soon realised that the Claimant's were unable to substantiate their Claims. George is impressed when Peru and Mexico waive all rights to the presumed treasure ship, happy that John would do the right thing. And to cap it all, they are willing to be his character witnesses.
In this fictional episode of the ocean and climate awareness series, 'George' takes care of John's tax returns, via their firms accounting department. All strictly legal and above board, including where appropriate, high level auditing. Because, George knows that John has enemies in high places, always looking for an opportunity to take him down.
George believes that he is related to King Arthur, although just a legend. He has a Round Table in his office and a collection of medieval suits of armour. George named the weapons system aboard the Elizabeth Swann, 'Merlin.' Also naming the laser cannon: 'Excalibur.' and the anti-pirate tazer: 'Pendragon.' George considers John to be a modern Knight, because of his strict code of honour, even when battling evil.
George is somewhat taken aback to learn that John, Dan, and Patricia have (apparently) cured Pope Peter Benedict of stage 4 cancer.
The next legal challenge would come in the form of, Musket Meloni's attempts to steal the cure for cancer and cloning technology, where George favours multiple injunctions, but John is forced to be proactive, in light of Meloni's efforts to hack Hal and Captain Nemo.
