It’s a little known fact that the inspiration for his famous novel “The Time Machine” was based on the plans and writings he uncovered belonging to Obediah Krinklenut. Obediah was renowned throughout the world of Steampunk Monkey Nation for his brilliant mind for invention.

(pictured) In 1988 a series of Petroglyphs were discovered adjacent to the Mercantour National Park in southern France. They appear to confirm Obediah’s success with time travel and explain his sudden disappearance. The crude tableau presented the violent death of a well-dressed, Victorian-styled simian by a pack of ferocious tusked beasts.
