  • Gunnar Sorensen

    As with his older brother Nils, long stretches of arctic winter appear to have leached all color from Gunnar Sorensen. Still, the brothers' personalities could not be more opposite. Gunnar is happy and companionable, contrasting with Nils' coldness. Happy …

  • Nils Sorensen

    The older Sorensen brother is tall and nearly colorless, with pale Norwegian skin and fine, virtually white hair that grows down past his shoulders. The pale blue eyes resemble ice water, and they study sky or horizon more comfortably than a nearby person …

    Professor Griffith is a rising young geologist, adept at linking and explaining other people's ideas. Griffith is not excited about this trip to Antarctica, but this long, unpleasant trip will advance his career considerably. He has researched …

  • Charlie Porter

  • Douglas Orgelfinger

  • Samuel Winslow

    More than anyone else on the expedition, Winslow is a certifiable genius. Although he is ostensibly studying glaciology, he knows a great deal about the majority of the disciplines represented on the expedition. Unfortunately, his mind works so quickly …

  • Tomas Lopez

    A strong, likable gardener recruited at Miskatonic University, Lopez is as hard and uncomplaining a worker as the expedition could wish for. Off-shift, he is shy and deferential, and indeed quite surprised that he was chosen for this trip. Initially, …

    Maurice Cole is a compact mass of muscle and leverage with short, brown hair and surprisingly pretty green eyes set into his boyish face. Although younger and smaller than Cruz and Lopez, and lacking the brute force the other two workers offer, Cole …
