Beyond the Mountains of Madness
Pierce Albemarle, scion of the Bridgeport Albemarles, is a slightly portly young man with a fashionable mustache and a monocle on his right eye for reading. He is a friendly sort, and although unused to heavy work, contributes readily to any group effort requiring assistance. Albemarle is used to the finer things in life, and even in Antarctica the investigators will find his tent redolent with the fragrance of some fine oolong tea. Given the small comfort of good tea, Pierce ably faces any disaster with little more than a brief frown. His graduate assistant is Douglas Orgelfinger.
