|Sir Richard Francis Burton
Physically, he is a dark caucasian, almost Arabic. He can seamlessly
envelop himself in many disparate cultures. Within weeks of becoming a member
of any human culture, Burton will speak the language flawlessly and have
intimate knowledge of the local customs. He is very worldly and is
constantly compelled by wanderlust. He's a can-do type of guy, a real-life
Indiana Jones. He is also known for being a sort of hot head, and will
never shy away from a fight.
Burton was the man character of the
novel series. He is most likely to be the main character of
the show, though the producers might opt for an American adventurer rather than
a British one.
