The Nautilus as imagined by Jules Verne. More similar to the original Nemo, though with a less finely worked-out character, is Robur in Robur the Conqueror —a dark and flamboyant outlaw rebel using an aircraft instead of a submarine—and its sequel Master of the World.
In one passage, Captain Nemo is mentioned as providing some help to Greeks rebelling against Ottoman rule during the Cretan Revolt of —proving to Arronax that he had not completely severed all relations with mankind outside the Nautilus after all. Verne made the proposed revisions within two weeks and returned to Hetzel with the final draft, now titled Five Weeks in a Balloon.
After this disagreement, Verne became notably cooler in his dealings with Hetzel, taking suggestions into consideration but often rejecting them outright.
Aronnax is a diligent scientist who, by 21st century standards, shows startling attitudes of class superiority to his faithful compatriots Conseil and Ned Land, but the three of them are devoted and loyal to each other.
