This page is based on the opening chapter of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. That's how it starts--with Dr. Jekyll's lawyer talking to another stuffy Victorian fellow about the odd goings-on at the Jekyll residence. Enjoy my hilariously bad backgrounds!

Leon Arnott (l) says: But Miss Narbon's gravity-defying device, which seemingly functions parallel to the pull of gravity, wouldn't allow the bathyscape to launch at an angle, would it?

It could be propelled at an angle by the Earth's rotation.

Or by inconvenient structural elements of the roof...  However, it does seem to be trailing an "exhaust" of "wrrr"'s emitted by those antennae.  Perhaps those affect the owrrrientation....

Daniel Dwiggins (dand) says: Conceptually the the device has to be one of two things, either a shield or a mirror.  If a shield, then objects would tend to move horizontally on a path tangential to the earth, which the original object (the body) failed to do.  Thus it must instead be a mirror, and a mirror can provide side thrust simply by angling to relect gravity off to one side.
Amy Fiori (amy82986) says: So, if all the other characters' ancestors are playing their roles in the Victorian storyline, does that mean the guy on the right is an ancestor of Octavius Winter?
James Fung (jgf) says: Probably not, as Winter's predecessor was Elijah Threadham, so it looks like the attorney isn't subject to narrative causality.
