Little is known about the Man's life before he got onboard the ship, though he was born in Des Moines, Iowa and got married. Despite her age even through her fiftieth birthday people had mistaken her to be his daughter because she looked like she was middle aged, though the Man would correct him and that he was a lucky man.
