Giovanni Battista Belzoni was an Italian circus strongman and one of the earliest European antiquities procurers. Also one of the first Europeans inside the Great Pyramid. I gave him a "chronicler" in the Sherlock Holmes vein and a new set of supernatural adventures fit for an explorer of his caliber. Followed by short-short "The Great Belzoni and the Monster of Goa," this novella is 9800 words.
