Bowker, Captain. Captain Bowker was created by Sydney Parkman and appeared in five novels from 1934 to 1947, beginning with Plunder Bar.

Captain Bowker is an irascible British ship captain in the Captain Kettle mode. Bowker pilots the Merry Maid around the Southeast Asia, showing his contempt for non-Britons, using the rough side of his tongue and fists on crew and strangers alike, and occasionally helping white people threatened by natives or evil whites.
