Chase presently works as a bodyguard for a billionaire and is later on assigned to protect Wilde.
The turning point in Andy McDermott’s debut, The Hunt for Atlantis, is when Nina Wilde opines that she has finally located the elusive albeit mythical Atlantis.

After Wilde’s university turns down her request for funding her exploration, a renowned magnate called Kristian Frost comes to her aid.
