In our most recent episode, Crotty got a shoock when he realised that the Captain of the Flying Phoenix, the airship that the Exp[edition would be utilising was, in fact, a woman.
Or, as Crotty termed her, a filly.
But what lies behind the woman who has the Flying Phoenix under her control?
Fallen from power, laid low by betrayal Frankie Hindenburg has spent the last few years dragging herself up from the stinking rookeries of New Babbage.
Through luck and perseverence, she has found herself back in charge of an airship and once again this highly experienced captain is cloud-hopping across the steamlands with her crew.
It takes a tough woman to succeed as a ship's Captain; of this there can be no doubt. But who is this mystery woman? What did her past life teach her? What brought her to her knees? What pain lies behind that sincere mask? And why does she watch the tinies warily?
Get inside the mind of Frankie Hindenberg as you read her personal journal.
