Born from the union of the aristocratic explorer Wade Jermyn and the female of a tribe of Ape Men who lived in a city in the unexplored jungles of Congo. After his mother's death he and his father returned to England where his father was locked up in a psychiatric institution because of the tales that he spoke of a strange race of Ape Men he met and that made him take himself for a fool. Philip then inherited the noble title and took as his wife the daughter of the gamekeeper of his estate, but after the birth of his son Robert, disgusted by the life of an aristocrat, he left first to enlist in the navy and then end up being a sailor and merchantman in the Africa trade and there one night he disappeared aboard his boat on the coasts of the Congo.
