In AH.com Fiction

a.) In AH.com The Series

Landshark's character is the chief pilot of the AH.com Ship, but often gets drafted into the security service. Several writers have expressed problems with trying to write his character as anything other than 'Angry Brit', a characterisation which he tends to react with, er, anger to. He and IronYuppie are in a long-standing sexual relationship where IronYuppie is clearly the dominant partner.

In the opening episode of Series 4 of the Series, KUNG FU BOB VS. THE CLONEMASTER, Dave Howery had Ian temporarily have all the writers make Landshark a heroic and much-admired character, or Landshark55 as Thande put it. Although this was only meant to be a one-episode joke, Landshark has continued to appear in more heroic roles in subsequent episodes, and this has become something of a running joke.

Starting in the episode LUST SLAVES OF THE MONKEY GOD, he developed a new schtick by which he'd have a sudden flash of insight and, upon being asked to explain it, simply reply “Hey, I'm British!”

b.) Other works

In Luaky Commer, Landshark fulfils the Professor Flitwick role, teaching Alternate Culture.

In AH.COM WARS, Landshark was the real identity of 'Darth Gaydar' and luakel's father.

The character of Pete Chambers from Thande's Moonstruck was also based on him.

Appears in Doctor What's Snake Oil, as Peter Chambers.
