Note: Blanche is half-right. Philip Pembroke was a bit of a waste, but that changed sometime after this story is set. He eventually left the service of the Frazier estate (they never really needed him anyway; he was more of a paid roommate than an actual butler, especially once Leo was alone in the house. Then as now, most household maintenance was automated.) to join the Sol Expeditionary Fleet. After a few years of exploration missions in the Kuiper Belt – for which he was often acknowledged for his expertise and bravery – he became a sleeper colonist at a time when survival for such adventurers was far from guaranteed. He was on-board the S.C.S. Yesterday when it launched from Proteus in 2277. As far as we know, it is still traveling away from the Sol System at half light-speed with all hands accounted for.
