Beyond the Mountains of Madness
Graduate Assistant to Pierce Albemarle
Douglas Orgelfinger is the ideal graduate student: doggedly loyal, intelligent without being creative, and able to go long periods without rest or food. Orgelfinger is willing to push himself to the utmost if necessary for the expedition, but he has done so too many times already, and repeated feats of endurance without significant rest wear him down. Orgelfinger will usually be found in Albemarle’s shadow, running errands for his patrician mentor.
