Kaw-djer is the name given to a man with an unknown past who lives in the region called Magellania (the Straights of Magellan). Kaw-djer's motto is: "Neither God nor master." Kaw-djer is only interested in himself and helping out the local people in Magellania. When a ship filled with immigrants finds itself wrecked on a nearby abandoned island. The survivors of this wreck decide to establish their colony where they wrecked. Kaw-djer is a man with great knowledge who helps them to establish their colony, but he is reluctant to take over when their society begins to fall apart.

NOTE: Jules' original title for this story was En Magellanie, Michel gave the title Les Naufrages du 'Jonathan' to his modified version.
