The person we code name “The Aussie” is probably not really an Australian. We call him that because we picked up his trail in Australia. As described in First Proof (which is worth reading for its additional detail), Flyss had been searching old missing person reports for signs of someone with extremely cautious life habits who suddenly took chances and then disappeared. What she found, eventually, was a young Australian man who drove off into the bush with no radio and without telling anyone about it, even though up until then he had been a person who never took risks.
He disappeared in Australia in 1967. With some look, she found him again in Germany, and tracked him further when he disappeared from Germany in 1979 and moved to Brazil next. She subsequently found evidence that he’d arrived in 1995 or 1996 in South Africa. Photographs taken along the way show that he does not age.
Unfortunately, his trail went cold after South Africa. But, it was discovered that another man, whom we nickname the Bounty Hunter, was after him as well. We subsequently traced the Bounty Hunter, though, so far, the Bounty Hunter has not led us to the Aussie.
[LATE BREAKING: IT TURNS OUT THAT THE AUSSIE HAS BEEN HERE FOR ALMOST A YEAR. Also, the Bounty Hunter we have been following is a different man; this was a deliberate deception. The Aussie (Blair) has been crucial for Oxadrenal’s Immortality Project. He is described in some detail Narrative 1 of the chronicles of that project.
