Sources indicate that John
Shark (pictured here with his chauffeur) is in frequent contact with
the premier of
Chexxas, and that he manages a vast private spy network to pass secrets
to the Chexxian regime, or to other hostile nations. LASA employees
have indicated that Shark has tried on numerous occasions to launch an
orbital missile on Neighopolis, which he has gotten into orbit by
hijacking space shuttle missions. Other sources hint that Shark was
behind the yet-unresolved destruction of the Prellic mountain village
of Ido, which was obliterated by a small nuclear bomb stolen from the
Legonian government during a top-secret transport on the Linkae River
near Shark’s mansion.
It would seem to many (including the Neighopolis
) that Shark
could not possibly be guilty of all these crimes, or even one of them.
The fact remains, however, that Mark Duncan (one of the best minds in
the LFBI/Secret Service) remains stationed but a few hundred yards from
Shark’s mansion. During the several periods over the last few years
when Shark has been missing, Duncan has been reassigned rapidly to
other cases. However, he has always returned to Cape Corncarnival when
Shark has. Local realtors vouch that his home has been under continuous
ownership by the Legonian government.
Mark Duncan is almost always seen with Robert Einstein, chief of police
of the Cape Corncarnival Police Department. Robert is the son of the
brilliant scientist Alfred Einstein, and has reputedly inherited a good
measure of the family brains. Robert Einstein has also worked on
high-profile cases, but is now assigned to Cape Corncarnival. The Cape
Corncarnival police station is also located only a few hundred yards
from John Shark’s mansion.
