FIFTY-ONE, B.S. MECHANICS, MARRIED WITH FOUR CHILDREN, ENJOYS THE OUTDOORS, MUCH EXPERIENCE IN CONSTRUCTION, QUITE HANDY, SYMPATHIZES WITH ANTI-CATHOLIC VIEWS.
Mr. Blake is anti-Catholic which conflicts with Father Frans. Inevitably, there will be problems among the two. However, he is being offered a spot on the lifeboat. Establishing the basic elements of survival might outweigh their religious faiths in the beginning. Since he has a lot of experience in construction, he will help to make shelter on the new island; this is obviously vital because of the situation that they are currently in. He also is quite handy, so he will help the others if they are struggling with their new responsibilities. The construction aspect can be his job, considering the jobs are being split up among the survivors. Additionally, he enjoys the outdoors; he may have experience in camping and survival outside. He can give pointers that will definitely increase the chances of survival among the group.
