Bio of a fictional character
Harold Aramis Buenaconte was born in 1755 as the son of a Portuguese sailor and a Tahitian prostitute. Upon reaching age seven, he ran away from the tiny hovel he shared with his mother and served as a first mate on slave-trading missions during the mercantilism era. His work as a youth gave him good voyaging skills and a lust for adventure, which led to him being part of the first trip around the southern tip of New Zealand, with Captain James Cook. His first discovery voyage ended in tragedy when he was left stranded alone on a tiny island in the South Pacific. Buenaconte lived for twenty years alone on Peace Island, finally getting discovered in 1783. Hailed as a hero in the tiny Tahitian trading community from whence he came, he lost his sense of adventure after twenty years on Peace Island alone. He sold his memoirs and lived off a government pension until his death from dropsy (cancer) in 1797.
