All the characters in the play are based on real people and mostly real events; however the portrayal of the Baker's marriage comes from the author's imagination, as does the notion of a Swedish painter. Peter Westman, a Swede, was arrested for pilfering the Water Nymph, but what his trade was is not known. Why Mrs. Baker and her two children were aboard the Star of Tasmania is not recorded in any public account of the tragedy.
