Character Profile

Name: Jonathan Carver
Date of Birth: c. 1793
Service: Royal Navy
Rank: Midshipman
Nationality: British
Billets: HMS Reliant


Jonathan Carver is the young midshipman chosen by lot to attempt to harness the dragonet later named Temeraire.

He is afraid of heights, which William Laurence thinks would make him a poor aviator. Luckily for Carver, Temeraire pays no attention to him and instead speaks to Laurence, leaving Carver to the Navy. Laurence considers him a "promising young officer."
