The fantastic tale of the Engineer of the Impossible actually begins nearly a century earlier with a fortune-hunter named Achilles Stewart. Beginning as a freelance adventurer and procurer of unusual relics, Achilles spent much of the nineteenth century brushing up against powers beyond his ken. He liberated ancient and horrible idols from decrepit tombs, fought bandits and rustlers on the plains with a hero of the West and his faithful Indian companion, hacked through darkest Africa with the Lord of the Jungle turned English Lord, rode the waves of time on a contraption of brass and steam, and fought alongside a fellow Earthman across the red deserts of Mars. As the turn of the century loomed, so did Achilles’ greatest adventure—fatherhood.

Every day saw the corners of the known world pushed aside. This was literally true as more and more of the world was fully explored and mapped, but was also true in the areas of human endeavor. Realizing that the World of Tomorrow would be ruled by science and technology, Achilles set out to train his son as the ultimate problem-solver in a world of science. With his vast fortune and several of the greatest minds the world had to offer, Achilles began Ajax’s training mere days after his birth. A regimen of nutrition, exercise, and mental acuity was devised, but constantly improved upon as new data and scientific breakthroughs became available. By the time the boy was in his teens, Ajax was already a master of numerous physical and mental disciplines. Few men could match him in physical and intellectual prowess.

Achilles would not live to see his son fulfill his destiny. On the eve of Ajax’s thirteenth birthday, Achilles departed on an ill-fated expedition to the recently discovered Enigma Isles. He disappeared. By Ajax’s twenty-first year, he was feeling the same wanderlust that had driven his father to travel the world. Thus began his fabled career that culminated in the creation of Stewart TroubleShooting, Incorporated. Ajax even managed to discover the fate of his father’s expedition more than two decades after his disappearance. Ajax solved that mystery on the very same day that he met the woman to which he proposed, Shiarra, the Mistress of Tooth and Claw.

Today, Ajax is a man totally comfortable with himself in any situation. He has grown into the perfect problem-solver that his father hoped to create. His is also the Chief Executive Officer of one of the strangest companies that the world has ever known. Ajax realizes that is life is as much due to his remarkable heritage and uncanny upbringing as it is to any personal achievement. With this always in mind, he is simultaneously the most capable and humble man one could meet. Tall, square jawed, and handsome with a strong baritone voice, Ajax is a man that every woman wants to have and every man wants to be like.
