Nigel Greenwater is an unseen but heard character from the Jungle Cruise.
History[edit | edit source]
Nigel Greenwater was British man who became an employee of the Jungle Navigation Company since 1930. He was one of the first employees to establish themselves in the company's Mekong outpost. Greenwater would encourage his co-workers to invest in short-wave radio systems to bring in business for their outposts.
When the JNC became successful due to the Jungle Cruise and discovery of the nearby Temple of the Forbidden Eye, Greenwater became the radio-announcer for the Global Broadcasting Service; an international radio-broadcasting service run by Greenwater himself through the Greenwater Production Company which had been founded in 1928. He and his broadcasting service hold some affiliation with the also internationally distributed Jungle Navigation Company with Nigel often relaying messages for its employees, staff and customers.
