Robert Virgin is an agent with the British Secret Service.
The time period in question for the activities of this swashbuckling, daring representative of the British Empire, on which the sun has not yet begone to set is the early 1900s. The Crown's influence all over the world remain strong but in constant need of resourceful men, and women, to maintain the status quo and keep full not only the coffers of the Royal Exchequer but also the millions of tea pots.
Virgin is a Captain in the military which at the time controlled the nascent intelligence agency Virgin works with, making him a gentleman officer engaged in what is sometimes a most ungentlemanly career but Virgin is determined to not only get the job done, whatever that job might be, but also to do it in a way that maintains the honor and dignity of his unit, represented by his always starched and pressed red coat uniform.
Aiding in that latter is his trusty and proven batman, Sergeant Doublett, a man who is able to not only keep the Captain's apparel and his armaments in superb condition but also is quite equipped to lend a hand in the actual missions. Virgin will find on more than one occasion that having a practiced and talented escapologist (not a common skillset for most batmen) is very fortunate.
Also seemingly everywhere that his orders takes this handsome, tall, blond-haired man roughly 35 years of age is the very lovely, very resourceful and very daring Mrs. Virginia Cortez, a photographer, adventurer, and part-time operative working alongside Virgin. Besides having fighting skills most useful at times and deductive abilities vital at all times, she also has an amazing amount of contacts in some of the highest places around, impressive for a woman not quite in her 30s.
Proving a constant challenge to the stability of British rule is the spymaster and arch-nemesis of Virgin, the dastardly and ever-scheming Karl von Brauner. Though von Brauner is German by nationality and prone to favoring that side of any conflict, he is truly a freelance agent and will help any side willing and able to pay his fee. In virtually every part of the world where trouble rises, there is an excellent chance that von Brauner will either be starting it or finding a way of keeping it going. Stopping him will prove to be Virgin's lot in life.
