Ostrog is a supporting character-turned-main antagonist in H.G. Wells’ novel “When the Sleeper Wakes."
In the novel, Ostrog was portrayed as a rebellious figure against the White Council, a trust determined to conquer the world. With the help of the protagonist, Graham, Ostrog was able to conduct a successful revolution. In a tragic twist, Ostrog used the revolution as an excuse to claim the power of the world for himself and merely used Graham as a pawn. After the fall of the White Council, Ostrog used Africans to make a new police and make an air force. Graham attempted to take down Ostrog’s personal airplane, leaving Ostrog’s fate unknown.
