Axis aggression in the 1940’s forged unlikely alliances between nations; arguably the most unusual occurred when the undersea kingdom of Lemuria joined the Allied forces. Meet Neptunus of Lemuria, nobleman, ambassador, warrior, and implacable foe of the Empire of the Rising Sun…

NEPTUNUS

Neptunus of Lemuria

Scion of the ruling family of the sunken kingdom of Lemuria, this young prince lived a life of leisure as an irresponsible wastrel until Japanese aggression in the Pacific threatened his ancestral home. Shortly after the United States entered the war the young prince (whose true name is difficult for humans to pronounce) presented himself to the crew of the aircraft carrier USS Hornet and requested an audience with President Roosevelt to discuss an alliance. En route to Washington DC, the prince spent his time studying Western human culture; during this period he learned of Neptune, the Roman god of the sea, and he decided to take the name “Neptunus” in his dealings with the world of Man.

Neptunus was successful in his endeavors as a diplomat and Lemuria joined the Allied forces in the battle against the Axis aggressors. Lemurians were often employed as scouts on naval warships throughout the war and were especially valued as submarine trackers. Neptunus himself was asked to join U.S. Admiral Chester Nimitz’ staff; intrigued by the costumed “mystery men” of the Liberty League, Neptunus instead opted for assignment to their ranks, where he became a key member throughout the war years.

Neptunus vanished along with the rest of the Liberty League in mid-1946.
