George Franks is a solicitor and partner in the firm: Franks, Swindles & Gentry. George was a friend of John Storm's deceased uncle: Professor Douglas Storm, and a friend of the family. He is trusted to administer the estate of his late friend, with some rather unusual clauses as to assisting John, if he takes up a challenge his uncle has set him.
John did take up the challenge, making George more than just a legal eagle. He becomes a mentor and advisor to the ocean adventurer. Taking up the challenge with relish.
Professor Douglas Storm is legally declared dead at the age of ninety, where he has been missing for a number of years, and is said to have died in an 'accident' while involved in the testing of a top-secret and very high speed underwater craft. But the circumstances were never fully investigated or explained, and the mini-sub was never recovered. George Franks is keen to get to the bottom of that matter, suspecting foul play. He does not believe in coincidences, where Professor Storm was a thorn in the side of many an administration - so had many enemies in high places.
