Captain Nemo (nemo (Latin) - no one, nobody) debuted in Jules Verne's 1870 novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as a rather nebulous figure who has become a piratical submariner. In Mysterious Island, published in 1874, we learn that Nemo was originally an Indian prince who participated in the failed Sepoy rebellion against the British and has lived in exile ever since. He is an embittered genius who has forsaken all national allegiances to indulge his scientific interests (and piratical pursuits) throughout the seas of the world.  
  I believe that the aloof and self-contained character in LXG is a faithful representation of the character originally created by Jules Verne.
