Shylocke Montague Herring, is one of the richest men on the planet. A Captain of Industry he employs 12,000 people in various prospects. His inventions are used by hospitals around the world, saving lives daily. The mortality rate of Mothers was greatly reduced by his peripitetic ceasarian array, for instance. His developments in Clockwork mechanism are patented, and he could live off these funds alone.
He is a recluse though, a loner. The Newspapers know very little about him. He resides on a island of the coast of the UK. Secluded.
People speculate on what drives this man, or what has driven him away.
Brittania rules the waves, Victoria rules her Empire, Shylocke rules his Industries.
But not his heart.
