Hollow Earth Expedition
And here you have one Mr. Lawrence Danforth, who will be accompanying you on your journey to discover, or disprove, passages to the center of the earth.

Lawrence was heading an exploration of Antarctica when the rumors surfaced about possible openings that lead to the center of the Earth. He was quite irritated at how the attention quickly shifted from the discoveries his team was making on the frozen continent to these unsubstantiated rumors. He is quite eager to set out and prove that these rumors are in fact rubbish, and return attention to his expedition where it should have been this entire time.
