Bernadoni, or The Italilan

Beyond the few written artifacts of Bernadoni himself and Teddy Hubble's brief accounts, little is known about the thoughts of Bernadoni. His whereabouts, too, remain a mystery. The physical evidence of his time on the ship, however, makes his brief yet former presence a certainty: a missing dinghy, a room in smithereens, a blowout in the side of the ship, a small stack of the most fantabulous illustrations, and a strange spike in the spiritual health index of the crew. Dressed in a strange mix of the finest fabrics and rotten rags, he came aboard with an odd accent and an even odder demeanor, seemed to cause the aberrations of TD+14, create distraction in TD+15, and finally disappear altogether in TD+16, amidst all other happenings.

Dahlia Sunshine

Francis St. James

This bunk was deemed a historical site by Captain Canute Glaskis. It was inhabited for a short time in TD+21 by Francis St. James, ship's naturalist who mysteriously disappered at the end of said Era. He was a devoted student of Mechanistic Philosphy and spent his time aboard the the ship building and studying machines to help prove these theories, which were developed by his beloved mentor: Valentin Aleksandrovich Zakharov.

St. James suffered a deep homesickness malaies while aboard. His iconic pictures of his brother, lover and Professor have been preserved to respect this great sadness that he grappled with. His perceived Philosophy and "Religion of the universe as originating from a perfect machine" has been adopoted by many of the crew. His bunk is used as a space for meditation and quiet contemplation. It is maintained by Sadie Sadie, a devotee of the aforementioned Philosophy and/or Religion.

As an interesting side note, it is rumored that, since leaving the Due Return, St. James has attempted to communicate with the crew by means of leaving bones, etched with cryptic messages, in past and future eras. While his message (if it is indeed his) remains unclear, the bones themselves are available for perusal in the ship's Archives.

Hanzon Sward

Hanzon Sward was born Martini Zincovovich to Reverend Wilderness and Venicia Zinco in TD+24, known as “The Sea of Nuerotransmitters”. It is hypothesised that his birthplace is the cause for Hanzon’s immense mathematical abilities.
Sward, now 26 years old, spends most of his time either sleeping or attempting to unravel “The mystery of Why We Us”, a mystery, he says, that is explainable through numbers.
You may find Hanzon often times hanging out in the cliffs where his father passed away, swabbing the deck, or performing on the deck as ‘Worm’ in the crew’s rendition of “Splicing of the Axon”.

Helseth Arborium

Helseth Arborioum, formerly Vero Helseth, was born in The Seed Bank of TD+9, Norway 2014, to a father chemist and mother cosmologist. She departed The Due Return in TD+11 at the age of 19. Helseth entered an alternate vortex, the only alternate vortex that has ever been recorded by the crew, and entered through the same vortex that The Due Return entered in TD+28, nearly 150 human years later.
This bending of time proved that the Space/Time’s The Due Return were traveling through were inter-related, just as Dahlia Sunshine predicted, and landed both Helseth and a future Due Return in the Celtic Sea in 2010 (Earth Time) where, on Sherkin Island, they were reunited and Vero Helseth became Helseth Arborium.
Helseth has spent her life modifying and genetically reordering biological specimens for higher survival rate in unfavorable conditions. She is also fond of riding polar bears.

Myra Penelope Sunshine

Born in Yosemite National Park’s Mirror Lake in earth-time 1936 to Dahlia Sunshine and Sharkeater. Myra was a wide-eyed baby from the get-go, as if the world was one big ice cream cone just slightly out of reach. She grasped, in a similar way to her mother, with a constant innocent intrigue to the happenings around her.
Her mother, Dahlia Sunshine, was an obsessive historian of the ship and it’s past crew members, going so far as to create a Diagram of All Returners, marking the eras that each crew member lived through.
As part of her obsession, Dahlia gave her only daughter the name Myra, named after the woman who first collected materials and constructed The Due Return.
Myra Penelope is expecting her first child any day now with the love of her life, Wilderness Banks.

Reverend Wilderness

Inside the cliff dwellings, buried 6ft beneath the surface, is the resting body of Reverend Wilderness.



Reverend Wilderness was born Dmitri Mendeleeva in Verhnie Aremzyani village, near Tobolsk, to Ivan Pavlovich Mendeleev and Maria Dmitrievna Mendeleeva (née Kornilieva) in 1834 E.A.D. His grandfather was Pavel Maximovich Sokolov, a priest of the Russian Orthodox Church from the Tver region.[1] Ivan, along with his brothers and sisters, obtained new family names while attending the theological seminary.[2]
Wilderness is thought to be the youngest of 14 siblings, but the exact number differs among sources.[3] At the age of 13, after the passing of his father and the destruction of his mother's factory by fire, Wilderness attended the Gymnasium in Tobolsk.

In 1849, the now poor Mendeleev family relocated to Saint Petersburg, where he entered the Main Pedagogical Institute in 1850. After graduation, tuberculosis caused him to move to the Crimean Peninsula on the northern coast of the Black Sea in 1855. At the age of 21, Wilderness boarded The PCA Due Return after discovering the beached vessel and its crew struggling to get back to sea. It was after T.D. +22 that Dmitri Mendeleeva became Reverend Wilderness, bearing the name granted to him by Captain Glasikis III.



Between T.D. +22 and T.D. +29 Wilderness tirelessly worked on diagraming the human eye and modifying it to efficiently output photons, called the Beaming Nutrition Project. Wilderness experimented on local citizens as The PCA Due Return found residence in various times/spaces. The majority of Wilderness’ work centered around modifying nasolacrimal ducts to produce Photonic Epepheral that could be translated into transmittable light beams from the optic nerve. It is estimated that Wilderness modified over 26,000 nasolacrimal ducts between T.D. +22 and T.D. +29.



Near the end of T.D. +29, Reverend Wilderness met Richard O’Shea in Blarney Co., Ireland at Scoil Mhuire Gan Smal, a secondary school near the Celtic Sea. Wilderness met O’Shea soon after the 18-year old had won an International Award naming him Top Young Scientist of E.A.D. 2010. Wilderness and O’Shea conversed inside the school’s coffee shop, a conversation famously revisited by Thomas J. Renke in “Madness at Sea”. It was during this conversation where Wilderness explained the nature of The PCA Due Return and eventually convinced O’Shea to join him as his protege on the dimensional voyage. O’Shea’s extensive knowledge of low-emission cooking devices complimented Wilderness’ expertise with photon production, and together their experiments with the human eye made great strides.

On board of The Due Return, Captain Reingold gave Richard O’Shea the name Wilderness Banks, as a symbolic display of his mentorship.



The research Reverend Wilderness and Wilderness Banks dedicated themselves to would not be fully realized until T.D. +30, an era known amongst Due Return crew as The Belly of The Machine, where only mechanical lubricants and converting fuels combined with an absolute darkness to create a seemingly impossible ecological environment. 13 of the 18 crew members at the time had undergone modified nasolacrimal duct surgery conducted by Wilderness and Banks, and those 13 crew members produced nearly 75,000 GeV over the course of 7 years (Earth Time) inside The Belly. The light output first acted as a source of sight, giving Captain ________ the opportunity to dissect ship’s surroundings. But more importantly, within one week (E.T.), the photonic production was able to coexist with The Belly’s vegetable oils and hydrogen fuels to create an ecological system capable of growing edible sources of energy known as Flog. Flog was The Due Return’s only source of food for 7 years (E.T.), a notoriously grotesque substance that was later capable of taste injection via Wilderness Banks’ quirky flavour-dash application.

Reverend Wilderness passed away within days (E.T.) of landing inside T.D. +31. His death occurred in what is now known as the cliffs. The research Reverend Wilderness conducted as part of Beaming Nutrition, and the field of Human Eye Modification that he invented, remains one of the most integral parts of PCA Due Return’s continued survival.

Teddy Hubble 3

Teddy Hubble 3, born Neil Pendergrass, began his journey with the Due Return at the age of nine. His parentage is unknown, having been discovered in the depths of Yosemite National Forest by Park Ranger Ralph H. Anderson, who placed him in the care of Sadie Sadie. TH3 was discovered by Ralph cowering under a tree, upper left arm bleeding and embedded with splinters—the result of lightning striking a nearby tree during the previous nights’ storm. (TH3 would become extremely pensive following loud noises and flashes of light for the remainder of his life, even through the point at which the ship is docked in TD+31.) At the time, all the boy could report was his name the scout troop number on his ripped, bloodied, and over-sized Boy Scouts uniform.

During his time with Ralph, TH3 was taught to carry out rudimentary tasks in the production of “narrie rotty”, or Norwegian Rot as he later discovered it was known on the ship. Otherwise, his time had been spent wandering through the forests, holding quiet conversations with himself or nearby birds and trees and making small arrangements of pine cones, moss, and other forest detritus.

When the Due Return first arrived at Yosemite, the boy was thrilled with the opportunity to join the ship. He quickly tore the Scout patch from his tattered uniform and began to attach it to a crew uniform. When Captain Glasikis saw what the boy was up to, he reportedly interrupted him, asking, “Now what is this young man about with uniform so large for him?”, to which TH3 replied, “Captain, Teddy Hubble 3 is preparing his uniform so that Neal can be left alone to go about his business..”

Against the custom held on the Due Return, the young and self-named TH3 was permitted to drink Norwegian Rot. He became fascinated by the ship’s history, making his name a mostly-obvious and slightly prescient choice. Many of his adolescent hours were passed on the deck of the ship, smoking cigarettes, sipping Rot, and reading through the journals of former crew. After a seeming asthma attack at the age of 13, TH3 refrained from smoking except when working with power tools.

During the ship’s time at Biome Neuro Norb, TH3 experienced an apparently uneventful, though awkward and isolated journey through his teenage years. After reaching Sherkin Island, though, he seemed to have the first awakening of his life, spending much time drinking at local pubs and pursuing romantic affairs as they passed across his radar. His main interest remained history, though his idle wanderings in the woods as a child had perhaps patterned him against really devoting himself to any study seriously. He was able, though, to gather some imagery at the least which documented the Yosemite region during the time of the Due Return’s visit. By the time of the Due Return’s departure from Sherkin Island, TH3 was tired of idle consumption and static life, much preferring to be moving outward and onward within the relative safety of the ship.

TH3 could be said to have combined a surprising ambition with a near-total lack of direction, a charge of energy without location.

Tessa Perry

Lovely girl, Tessa Perry, born Aforementioned Afterthought, became quite the not - beautiful, elegant, carrying a soft voice and an instant love for Sherkin Island, Ireland, 21st century, the 29th era The Due Return passed through. Tessa became infatuated with Earth-based human culture, the sharing of music and art, watching live performances within The Jolly Roger Pub and learning to platy guitar and write songs herself.
She met a friend in Baltimore and they called themselves Lonely and The Moose, Tessa was The Moose. Soon after, Tessa learned of another Earth-based human dillemma: love.
A young man named Mick Flannery, writer of music and playing of instruments himself, took Tessa Perry to Dublin and also took her virginity. They fell in love, deep in love, and after two years of being together emerged the truest of love’s dillema: Should I stay or should I go now?
Tessa knew the ship would be leaving. Most crew members were able to sense such things. Mick contemplated boarding the ship, and Tessa contemplated staying behind, but neither happened. Instead, Mick and Tessa continued down their separate paths as The Due Return traveled into the 30th era.
Tessa misses Sherkin Island, and she misses it dearly. Her bunk is a blessing yet also a curse - constant reminder of the most amazing place she ever lived, and the most amazing man she ever loved.

Thomas Reingold

Thomas Reingold was born during the turmoil of mutiny in TD+20 to Preston Reingold and Venecia Zinco Zincovovich. It was in TD+26 at Yosemite when Thomas first learned of his amazing gift. While sleeping, occasionally Reingold will slip into an alternate dream realm that is much more vivid and fleshed than your basic dream. He began calling these experiences ‘Visitations’ as they felt like he was not simply imagining the worlds, rather, witnessing them as if he was a ghost.
Thomas began recording his dreams with Captain Zincovovich’s Somnocartographic Recorder, a helmet-like device that allows users to take still photos of images playing in their mind as well as record short video clips. He began realizing that the place he was visiting was consistent - earth, early 21st century, large sky, dry dirt, young kids.
Thomas Reingold is one of a few people who give daily presentations in the archive. His presentation focuses on his ‘Visitations’.
