Anyone ever wondered about "Garth"/Fedora? Probably the most important person Indy ever crossed paths with in his entire life. What do we know of him? Nothing. Yet he was the prototype for Indy. The man Indy would become. A more grizzly, perhaps less cultured version; A guy who perhaps was an alcoholic, who literally had more scars than Indy. A guy who was going on adventures in a much more primitive and much more interesting time than Indy is. Can you imagine cheap, pulpy tales about him set in the Edwardian era? I certainly can.
One wonders - the guys with him, were they his really gang? Or just local hired guys?
Did he ever uncover anything supernatural like Indy?
Did his encounter with Indy mark his own last adventure?
Did they ever cross paths again?
