Girl Genius

Professor Guylian Consolmagno led an airship expedition financed by Ariadne Steelgarter to find Skifander. This venture, while ultimately ill-fated, was technically a success, and in turn led to Zeetha going out to explore the world . Lady Steelgarter later describes Consolmagno as "a young hothead of an Italian. SO BRILLIANT." Perhaps it's because of the word "young" that the professor grew a full head of hair between the 2004 flashback (narrated by Olga, right) and the 2018 flashback (narrated by Zeetha, below).

The expedition was attacked by pirates during its return journey, and according to Zeetha, the professor and all members of the expedition are dead .

A footnote in Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle indicates his first name was Guylian, and that he acquired his PhD from the University of Rome.[1]
