Edwin Thurber, born early 1900 (so now age 26), history professor

He was born somewhere in Louisiana to Thelma and Harold Thurber and received a fairly strict upbringing until he was about 8, when Thelma died giving birth to a still-born daughter. Soon after that Harold passed Edwin into the care of Thelma's sister Emily and her husband Alfred. Edwin has no idea of Harold's whereabouts or even whether he is alive.

Emily and Alfred had been childless, much to their regret, and when they took charge of Edwin Emily in particular paid him a lot of attention.

As a result of this care and Emily's library, Edwin became interested in ancient Greece and the Near-East, mainly from reading about Schliemann's and Evans' discoveries. This became a more general interest in the past. He then steadily but unspectacularly worked his way through a small local college, at which he is now assistant professor of history.
