Challenger in many ways was rude, crude, and without social conscience or inhibition. Yet he was a man capable of great loyalty and his love for his wife was all-encompassing.
Challenger's wife, Jessica, later died from influenza. Challenger's friend and biographer, Edward "Ted" Dunn Malone later married Challenger's daughter, Enid Challenger in 1927.
Professor Challenger went on sever adventures. In one adventure he discovered a land in South America where dinosaurs lived.
Sometime after Jessica's death, Professor Challenger became obsessed with psychic phenomena and the paranormal.
