Van Krook

Van Krook is 50. He’s rich and elegant… but beneath the facade lies a hypocritical, greedy, amoral and cowardly creature, only interested in his personal enrichment.

Van Krook claims that his ancestors discovered the island of Maotu and, because of that, it belongs to him. He lives aboard a huge yacht, equipped with a pocket submarine.

Van Krook sometimes works on commission for outsiders. He is assisted by two henchmen: Biff and Rico.


Van Krook has his niece, Clarissa, who comes from the city, staying aboard his yacht. He’s going to have real trouble getting this young lady to do as he says.
