Once an old-school archaeologist, Dr. Kingsley has long since retired from fieldwork and now works as the director of the American Museum of Civilization in California. He is also the boss, mentor, and close friend of the museum’s head curator, Dr. Robert Bly. A kind and gentle man, Kingsley is proud to also be the godfather of Robert’s daughter Shelby Bly. Ever the old-fashioned optimist, Kingsley has no doubt that Robert will find his own way out of danger as he has many times before. Still, he has no problem helping Shelby to “follow in her father’s footsteps” and help her with her own adventure to find the Vril and save Robert.
This is the finalized concept for this character. I still need to tweak his younger self from the Prologue (seen below) but other than that, I think he is ready for prime time!
Here we see Dr. David Kingsley as he appears in the Prologue which takes place about 20 years before the main story. I’m not quite sure I like this concept but it is my first attempt at it. I’m not sure about the hair and I should probably give a more different suit. I’ll come back to this this one later and fix as needed.
