"Gentleman, I assure you I have everything under control. After all, I'm Christopher Columbus! I'll find a way home." -- Christopher Columbus

Christopher Columbus (c. 1451 – May 20, 1506) was an Italian explorer, navigator, colonizer, and citizen of the Republic of Genoa. Under the auspices of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain, he completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean. Those voyages and his efforts to establish permanent settlements on the island of Hispaniola initiated the European colonization of the New World.


After the player finds Columbus stranded in the Caribbean, he tells the player that his ocean charts have been stolen, and his crew members refuse to set sail until they see proof that he knows the way back to Spain.
