Fictional Character Biography

According to Team Fantomen

He was born in 1626. His mother died when giving birth to him Plague Infected. He presumably went to Woolstone convent school in England like his father The Forest of Horrors and grandfather The Pirates Prisoner.

He married an Italian opera singer Captain Amazon - Pirate Queen (edited version) in 1646 and the same year, their son, the 6th Phantom, was born.

As a sign of gratitude for loyal service of the English King, Charles I, he was made Lord Walker of Hathersage. The Long Bow of Little John

He had a cormorant named Loki and founded the Jungle Olympics. The Strength of Ten Tigers

In 1656, a woman that the 5th Phantom referred to as his mother died in the Skull Cave. The same year, his beloved Juliana della Bartolo (who was not his wife or the mother of his son), died of the plague. The Black King

He was mortally wounded in 1662, when he challenged the pirate called Black Glove at a duel and got a heavy barrel over himself. A pirate that had turned to his side brought him back to the Skull Cave where he died after having written down the story. Luckily though, he had already written to his son and asked him to come back to Bengali since he had a bad feeling of the outcome of the duel, so his son could quite soon arrive and assume the duty as the 6th Phantom. Black Glove, Part 1

According to the Newspaper strip

The 5th Phantom was active during the 18th century, often wearing a cape and hat over his Phantom garb; he met and eventually married former pirate Juliet Adams Walker, who was known as Captain Amazon. Captain Amazon - Pirate Queen

He met Juan Muerto a second time in 1652 (conflicting with the date of the earlier story, which is placed in the 18th century), seven years after the destruction of the Saba Island pirate fortress, when his son was very young. He fought Muerto's pirates and ended up their prisoner.

Weeks later, his wife Juliet Adams Walker learned of his mission from the Phantom Chronicles in the Skull Cave. Knowing of Muerto from her time as a pirate, Juliet decided to go after her husband. Death Stalks the 5th Phantom

According to Moonstone

According to Bastei
