Emanuelle ‘Manny’ Dimanche is an inveterat wanderer.
Captain of a small boat from the Carribbean Manny has at one stage or another tried his hand at any career on the water. From tour guide to pirate, to smuggler to deep sea diver.
Raised in an orphanage on Haiti Manny always was drawn to the sea. At an early age he ran away to work on salvage boats. His excellent swimming abilities and the fact he could stay submerged far longer than the other divers meant he did not struggle to find work.
As he grew he entered into other less illustrious careers including smuggling, people trafficking and piracy.
Not being keen on inflicting suffering for other people’s gain and wanting his own freedom Manny eventually won his own boat in a card game that quickly deteriorated into a lethal brawl – Manny still has a scar on his head from that knife fight.
However Manny now had his own boat and the world was open to him. He sailed all over the Mediterranean and then beyond – Braving storms and anything the sea could throw at him and emerging unscathed each time.
Six months ago in the waters off the Great Barrier Reef whilst diving for pearls Manny was attacked by a Great White Shark leaving a large scar on his left arm. Eventually using a harpoon he found on the sea floor Manny was able to slay the creature and haul it’s carcass onto his boat.
As he swam to the surface he caught sight of a gigantic shark circling him. The creature did not move into attack but merely followed him for a day.
Upon waking the next day he found a strange medallion hanging from the wheel of his boat along with the previously discarded harpoon he had used to kill the shark with.
Putting the medallion on Manny promptly blacked out – he was confronted with strange voodoo visions of a creature form the deeps claiming to be his father.
Upon awakening – MAnny found a month had passed and his ship was anchored off the coast of England.
