A freelance writer for various US publications, Banner is traveling on the Simplon-Orient express recording his impressions of nations, peoples, and the famous train itself. A tall, balding, slightly argumentative man with a large adams-apple, Banner is innocently ignorant and quite naive, but people rarely take advantage of his genuinely good nature.
He’s a skilled writer, and adept at first aid from his hospital service during the Great War. He hails from the Appalachian mountains, and has a lot of home remedies that always seem to work – provided he can find the right ingredients. His rumpled suits bulge with pencils, notebooks, and manuscripts.
