Captain Nemo is a fictional character created by the French science fiction author Jules Verne. Nemo appears in two of Verne's novels, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and The Mysterious Island, makes a cameo appearance in Verne's play Journey Through the Impossible. Nemo is a mysterious figure; the son of an Indian Raja, he is a scientific genius who roams the depths of the sea in his submarine, the Nautilus, built in pieces all over the world and shipped to the builder. Nemo tries to project a stern, controlled confidence, but he is driven by a thirst for vengeance and a hatred of imperialism focused on the British Empire, he is wracked by remorse over the deaths of his crew members and by the deaths of enemy sailors. Nemo has appeared in various adaptations of Verne's novels, including films, where he has been portrayed by a number of different actors, he has been adopted by other authors for inclusion in their own works, such as in Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Philip José Farmer's The Other Log of Phileas Fogg.
Nemo is Latin for "no one". Nemo is, the Latin rendering of Ancient Greek Outis, the pseudonym adopted by Odysseus, in Greek mythology—a ruse employed to outwit the cyclops Polyphemus; this appears to be the intended meaning, since in The Mysterious Island, when addressed by Cyrus Harding as Captain Nemo, he replies, "I have no name!" Nothing concerning his past is revealed in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, except his dislike of imperialism and the apparent loss of his family in the past. In The Mysterious Island, Captain Nemo identifies himself as Prince Dakkar, son of the Hindu Raja of Bundelkhand, a descendant of the Muslim Sultan Fateh Ali Khan Tipu of the Kingdom of Mysore, famous for the Anglo-Mysore Wars and Mysorean rocket technology. After the Indian Rebellion of 1857, in which Dakkar lost his family and his kingdom, he devoted himself to scientific research and developed the Nautilus, wherein he and a crew of followers cruise the seas, they gather bullion from various shipwrecks in the oceans, most notably the wrecks of the Spanish treasure fleet in Bay of Vigo, sunk during the Battle of Vigo Bay.
He claims to have no interest in the affairs of the world above, but he intervenes to aid the oppressed, such as by giving salvaged treasure to participants in the Cretan Revolt against the island's Turkish rulers and by saving a Ceylonese or Tamil pearl hunter from a diving accident, or by saving the castaways from drowning in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and covertly protecting another set of castaways in The Mysterious Island. Like many actual Indian princes of the era, Nemo had a European or English education, in which he spent his youth studying and touring Europe. In his first meeting with Professor Aronnax and his companions, they speak to him in French, English and German. Aronnax comments that Nemo's French was perfect, relies on his intuition and knowledge of ethnology to infer that he was from southern latitudes; the Nautilus’s library and art collection reveal Nemo to be familiar with European culture and arts. Further, he was an accomplished player of the organ. Nemo is said to have died of old age, on board the Nautilus, at Dakkar Grotto on Lincoln Island in the South Pacific.
Funeral rites were administered by Cyrus Harding, one of the castaways protected by Nemo himself, his vessel was submerged in the waters of the grotto. Nemo's character in the novels is seen through the observations of Professor Pierre Aronnax, the narrator of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, when Nemo is about forty years of age and described as a reticent man and swarthy in appearance, with a straight nose and wide-set eyes. In The Mysterious Island, the aged Captain Nemo sports a long white beard, he avoids dry land, except, as with Antarctica and desert islands. In keeping with his contempt for the nations of the surface, he uses no products that are not marine in nature, be it food, furnishing, or tobacco. Little is revealed about his political opinions except an maniacal hatred of oppression, with which he identifies all the imperialistic nations of the world, he therefore identifies himself with those oppressed, be they Cretans rising against the Turks, Ceylonese pearl divers, or black whales attacked by cachalots.
When Professor Aronnax alleges that Nemo violates maritime and international law by sinking war-ships, Nemo responds that he is defending himself from his attackers, that the laws of the world on the surface no longer apply to him. In one scene, Nemo exclaims: "... On its surface they can still exercise their iniquitous claims, battle each other, devour each other, haul every earthly horror, but thirty feet below sea level, their dominion ceases, their influence fades, their power vanishes! Ah, live! Live in the heart of the seas! Here alone lies independence! Here I recognize no superiors! Here I'm free!" Nemo is devoted to his crew and grieves when one is killed in the giant squid attack in the Caribbean Sea, or after a midnight encounter with a surface ship. He shows the same compassion in his treatment of the castaways in The Mysterious Island, retains a strong attachment to his deceased wife and children. Though short-tempered, he expresses his anger, he is a man of immense courage, in the forefront of every activity, from releasing the Nautilus from the Antarctic ice to fighting squid in the Caribbean.
Orphans of Chaos
Orphans of Chaos is a 2005 science fiction, fantasy novel by John C. Wright, it is the first volume of the Orphans of Chaos trilogy that continues with the novels Fugitives of Chaos and Titans of Chaos. Five orphans - Victor, Vanity and Quentin - who have spent their lives in a luxurious but strict and secretive British boarding school begin to discover that they are different from the other children that they so see. Unlike the village children, the five orphans do not age, they can manipulate their appearances. Throughout the book, they come to discover that they possess unique paranormal abilities. Victor can control the molecular arrangement of matter. Amelia is a fourth-dimensional being. Vanity can find secret passageways. Colin is a psychic. Quentin is a warlock; the five discover that the patrons of the school along with their guardians and teachers are just as human as they themselves, not at all. The story concerns the main characters' investigations and discoveries about an otherworldly power struggle, their place within it.
Themes of naming and identity, both assumed and genuine, are important in the novel and the trilogy it opens. The five child-protagonists are first known only by simple Latin numerical designations. Only in their teens do the five discover their true identities: "Primus," who calls himself Victor Invictus Triumph, learns that he is Damnameneus, one of the Telchines. Other characters in the novel participate in this pattern of multiple identities. Reginald Boggin, the headmaster of the children's school, is Boreas, the ancient Greek personification of the north wind, his staff is composed of a Thessalian witch, a cyclops, similar exotic beings. The music teacher, Miss Daw, is Thelxiepia the siren; the caretaker, Mr. Glum is the human form of Grendel, the monster from Beowulf. Glum's talking dog is the hunting hound of Artemis. Wright bases the cosmology of the novel in the mythology of ancient Greece. Many of the gods are habitually referred to by obscure titles from their respective mythologies.
"Lord Mavors," the children's principal antagonist, is Mars. Most of the major deities of the Greek pantheon have roles in its successors. Many of the secondary figures like Boreas and Orpheus appear. Decidedly minor personalities pop up, like Laverna and Pherespondus the satyr. Wright structures his fictional world on the Greeks' primal creation myth, the rebellion of the Olympian gods against their progenitors and the other Titans; the author combines this traditional mythology with science-fiction elements. In his cosmos, the Phaiacians are not the ancient people familiar from the Odyssey, but a race of otherworldly beings with remarkable abilities; the other four teenage protagonists each derive from a different order of non-human, pre-Olympian life, with their own strange natures and capacities. The Olympians regard them as monsters of Chaos. Wright blends mythological and Homeric elements with Science Fiction in surprising ways. For example, his Laestrygonians are Martians, while his Atlanteans sail in outer space vessels as well as in submarines below the oceans of the Earth.
The novel's narrator, Amelia Windrose, is one of a race of beings who experience higher spatial dimensions. Wright is to some degree comparable to Rudy Rucker as a science fiction writer who has devoted significant attention to the theme of the fourth dimension.

German submarine U-505
U-505 is a German Type IXC U-boat built for Germany's Kriegsmarine during World War II. She was captured by the U. S. Navy on 4 June 1944. In her uniquely unlucky career with the Kriegsmarine, she had the distinction of being the "most damaged U-boat to return to port" in World War II and the only submarine in which a commanding officer took his own life in combat conditions, she was one of six U-boats that were captured by Allied forces during World War II. She was captured on 4 June 1944 by United States Navy Task Group 22.3. All but one of U-505's crew were rescued by the Navy task group; the submarine was towed to Bermuda in secret and her crew was interned at a US prisoner-of-war camp where they were denied access to International Red Cross visits. The Navy prevented its discovery by the Germans, her codebooks, Enigma machine, other secret materials found on board helped the Allied codebreakers. In 1954, U-505 was donated to the Museum of Science and Industry in Illinois, she is now one of four German World War II U-boats that survive as museum ships, along with U-534, just one of two Type IXCs still in existence.
German Type IXC submarines were larger than the original Type IXBs. U-505 had a displacement of 1,120 tonnes when at 1,232 tonnes while submerged; the U-boat had a total length of 76.76 m, a pressure hull length of 58.75 m, a beam of 6.76 m, a height of 9.60 m, a draft of 4.70 m. The submarine was powered by two MAN M 9 V 40/46 supercharged four-stroke, nine-cylinder diesel engines producing a total of 4,400 metric horsepower for use while surfaced, two Siemens-Schuckert 2 GU 345/34 double-acting electric motors producing a total of 1,000 shaft horsepower for use while submerged, she had two 1.92 m propellers. The boat was capable of operating at depths of up to 230 meters; the submarine had a maximum submerged speed of 7.3 knots. When submerged, the boat could operate for 63 nautical miles at 4 knots. U-505 was fitted with six 53.3 cm torpedo tubes, 22 torpedoes, one 10.5 cm SK C/32 naval gun, 180 rounds, a 3.7 cm SK C/30 as well as a 2 cm C/30 anti-aircraft gun. The boat had a complement of forty-eight.
U-505's keel was laid down on 12 June 1940 by Deutsche Werft in Hamburg, Germany, as yard number 295. She was launched on 25 May 1941 and commissioned on 26 August with Kapitänleutnant Axel-Olaf Loewe in command. On 6 September 1942, Loewe was relieved by Kptlt. Peter Zschech. On 24 October 1943, Oberleutnant zur See Paul Meyer took command for about two weeks until he was relieved on 8 November by Oblt.z. S. Harald Lange. Lange commanded the boat until her capture on 4 June 1944, she conducted twelve patrols in her career. Three of these were American, two British, one Norwegian, one Dutch, one Colombian. Following training exercises with the 4th U-boat Flotilla from 26 August 1941 to 31 January 1942, U-505 was assigned as an operational boat to the 2nd U-boat Flotilla on 1 February, she began her first patrol from Kiel on 19 January. For 16 days, she circumnavigated the British Isles, docked at Lorient, in occupied France on 3 February. During her first patrol, U-505 was not attacked. U-505 left Lorient on 11 February 1942 on her second patrol.
In 86 days, she traveled to the west coast of Africa. In less than one month, U-505 sank four ships: the British Benmohr, the Norwegian Sydhav, the American West Irmo, the Dutch Alphacca for a total of 25,041 GRT. On 18 April, U-505 was attacked by an Allied aircraft in the mid-Atlantic but suffered little damage. U-505 began her third patrol on 7 June 1942, after leaving her home port of Lorient, she sank the American ships Sea Thrush and Thomas McKean and the Colombian Urious in the Caribbean Sea. Urious was a sailing ship belonging to a Colombian diplomat, so its sinking gave Colombia political grounds to declare war on Germany. U-505 returned to Lorient on 25 August after 80 days on patrol without being attacked. U-505's fourth patrol sent her to the northern coast of South America, she left Lorient on 4 October and sank the British vessel Ocean Justice off the coast of Venezuela on 7 November. On 10 November near Trinidad, U-505 was surprised on the surface by a Lockheed Hudson maritime patrol aircraft from No. 53 Squadron, Royal Air Force, which made a low-level attack, landing a 250 lb bomb directly on the deck from just above water level.
The explosion wounded another in the conning tower. It tore the anti-aircraft gun off its mounting and damaged the ship's pressure hull; the aircraft was hit by fragmentation from the bomb's explosion and crashed into the ocean near U-505, killing RAAF pilot Flight Sergeant Ronald Sillcock and his entire crew. With the pumps inoperative and water flooding the engine room in several places, Kptlt. Zschech ordered the crew to abandon ship; the vessel was made water-tight after two weeks of repair work. After sending the wounded watch officer to the supply submari
Outis is an used pseudonym. Artists and others in public life use this pseudonym in order to hide their identity; the Latin equivalent Nemo is often used. "Outis" was used as a pseudonym by the Homeric hero Odysseus, when he fought the Cyclops Polyphemus, had put out the monster's eye. Polyphemus shouted in pain to the other Cyclopes of the island that "Nobody" was trying to kill him, so no one came to his rescue; the story of the Cyclops can be found in the Odyssey, book 9. The name Nobody can be found in five different lines of Chapter 9. First of all in line 366: "Cyclops, you asked my noble name, I will tell it. My name is Nobody. Nobody I am called by mother, by all my comrades." In line 369: So I spoke, from a ruthless heart he straightway answered: "Nobody I eat up last, after his comrades. In line 408: Then in his turn from out the cave big Polyphemus answered: "Friends, Nobody is murdering me by craft. Force there is none." But answering him in winged words they said: "If nobody harms you when you are left alone, illness which comes from mighty Zeus you cannot fly.
But make your prayer to your father, lord Poseidon". In line 455: "Are you sorry because that wicked Nobody brought your master down with drink and blinded him?". And in line 460: "I should thus have some revenge for the harm that no-good Nobody has done me". In the New York Evening Mirror, Edgar Allan Poe denounced the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow as a plagiarist. Longfellow remained silent on the matter, but a defender for Longfellow did appear, an anonymous writer who signed his letters only as "Outis". Speculation as to the identity of Outis has mentioned Cornelius Felton, Lawrence Labree, Poe himself. Henry Stevens was an American rare book dealer, a graduate of Yale University. In 1845 he went to London'on a book-hunting expedition' and remained there until his death in 1886; as an antiquarian he helped to build up several great American libraries. In 1877, under the pseudonym of'Mr. Secretary Outis,' he projected and initiated a literary association named The Hercules Club. István Orosz, Hungarian visual artist, uses the pseudonym Utisz, a phonemic respelling of the Greek Outis: that is, both are pronounced /utis/.
The hidden meaning of the ancient tale is close to the visual pitfalls created by Orosz. He likes to use visual paradox, double meaning images and optical illusion – all of them are some kind of attack upon the eye, an Odysseus' gesture in a symbolic way. Orosz doubles himself: from time to time, he signs his works as Utisz, the pseudonym borrowed from Cyclopeia; the most artful Greek, Odysseus used as a pseudonym the word meaning No-man, as we know, with that exchange of names Polyphemos the Cyclops’ eye came into the world. The gouging out of the eye, or deception to the eye accompanied the works of Orosz/Utisz, if only metaphorically. Trompe l’oeil – we refer with an art historical expression to those images in which illusion guides the gaze. Orosz uses such artifice, though he is aware of the danger of these deceptive procedures, he put it this way at a symposium a few years back: I hope my intentions are clear, in the ambitions of a Hungarian artist at the turn of the century, who does not tell the truth only to be caught in the act.
Pseudonym of Henri Antoine Meilheurat des Pruraux for O il cattolicismo o la morte in Leonardo nr 7. Kaniel Outis Hablot Knight Browne was a British graphic artist, well known as Charles Dickens's illustrator. Among others he illustrated David Copperfield and Martin Chuzzlewit. Browne adopted the pseudonym "N. E. M. O." Soon, however, he became "Phiz," a pseudonym well suited for the creator of "phizzes"—delightful caricatures, as seen in his illustrations. Nemo is the given name of the scrivener with a secret in Dickens's Bleak House. Camille Claudel, a French sculptor and graphic artist had a pet canary named Nemo, it was mentioned as alter ego of Camille Claudel in some personal letters by Rodin. Captain Nemo is a fictional character of Jules Verne's novels Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and The Mysterious Island. Captain Nemo is a mysterious hero and a scientific genius who roams the depths of the sea in his submarine, the Nautilus, which he built on a deserted island. Little Nemo is the main character in a series of comic strips by Winsor McCay, which appeared weekly in the New York Herald between 1905 and 1913.

No One is a nu metal music group from Illinois; the original name of the four-piece band was Black Talon. They have been active since 1994. Harold Cohen, an American author, wrote science fiction novels under the pseudonyms Harry Enton and "Noname." After some titles his well-known series Frank Reade was continued by Luis Senarens who used "Noname" as well.
