David Johnson (Mr. Handy)

The Yucatan has long been at best a marginally explored region of Latin America. As one of the great centers of the ancient Mayan culture, it holds many secrets long sought after by historians and archaeologists from around the world. The investigators are a small group of explorers whose mission is to seek out and survey sites for ruined cities and towns on the peninsula. A long lost piece of information leads the group into a dark corner of the Yucatan. What will they find and can they survive the Well of Sacrifice?

Appearance & Personality: David Johnson is a man of average build with blond hair and rugged features. He often has a serious disposition, though he does find plenty of enjoyment in his work. He is not enthralled with academic life, preferring to be out in the field on a dig whenever posssible, though he does give lectures and run his classes professionally and well. He exercises frequently to stay in good shape.

Background: David Johnson has always had a particular fascination with American history, especially pre-Columbian history. He longs to unearth America's buried and forgotten past to discover what things were like before the Europeans arrived. His specialty is the Mayans, and he has long wondered and speculated about the causes of their civilization's sudden collapse, which was the subject of his doctoral dissertation. He has some unorthodox theories about pre-Columbus contact between America and people overseas. While the Viking presence is known and accepted, his ideas about ancient Phoenicians crossing the Atlantic are not. He is able to get some people to have an open mind through his persuasive arguments, but he knows that he needs hard evidence to convince most in the academic world. He hopes to find definitive proof of ancient transatlantic contact someday, thus changing the way history is perceived and immortalizing his name along with other noted archaeologists such as Heinrich Schleimann, the discoverer of Troy, a city once believed to be mythical.
