Bartholomew Cornelius Willingshire III was not born with a silver spoon in his hand as his name might suggest. He did not refine his wit and charm in a posh boarding school, but merely survived, fighting and scraping his way through the pubs and back alleys of North London. In his youth, his only friends were a menagerie of vice, but as the world around him changed and tyrannical rulers impeded his pursuits of freedom, he found new purpose. He transformed himself through sheer determination and hard work into The Brown Bomber, the most skilled and feared pilot the skies have ever seen. He sought out and destroyed oppression with fervor and virtue, always with a bomber of brown ale and one of his favorite cigars in his cockpit.
