Description
  • Captain Hagbard Celine is afictional character from the Illuminatus trilogy of books/prophecies by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson, named after the legendary Viking hero Hagbard who died for love. In the Schrödinger's Cat trilogy, the sequel to Illuminatus!, it is stated that 'Hagbard Celine' is a pseudonym, and his legal name is 'Howard Crane'. However, given the fact that the trilogy passes through many very different universes, it may be, and seems likely in light of other facts, that this is not true in the universe in which Illuminatus! and The Historical Illuminatus Chronicles are set.Parallels to Jules Verne's character, Captain Nemo, are apparent. Both are genius captains aboard a fantastic submarine. Both are rogues who have mostly broken off from society, yet help the oppressed. Some have even theorized that Hagbard Celine is, in fact, Capt. Nemo himself.
