The New Adventures of Captain N
Doctor Mycroft Trance
cocky and disdainful man, intellectual rival to Professor Keene, and renowned author
Dr. Mycroft Trance has been a tenured professor of English at Northbridge University for many years and was in fact the most renowned and popular professor within the collegiate network before being upstaged by the young, entertaining, and more popular Professor Kevin Keene some years earlier. He has authored many books in several fields, and is an extremely intelligent man. His manner, however, has become increasingly frustrated and frayed over the years.
He can be harsh when talking to his students, who he feels are all idiots compared to his intellect, and he fails more students than he passes every semester. He is hoping to one day become the Dean of the university, so he can one day re-earn the notoriety he feels he has lost.
