 Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne: Chapter 1
Phileas Fogg was a member of the Reform, and that was all.
Phileas Fogg was not known to have either wife or children, which may happen to the most honest people; either relatives or near friends, which is certainly more unusual.
Phileas Fogg was seated squarely in his armchair, his feet close together like those of a grenadier on parade, his hands resting on his knees, his body straight, his head erect; he was steadily watching a complicated clock which indicated the hours, the minutes, the seconds, the days, the months, and the years.

 SAJV History - Proposal Three - Page 5
Fogg regards it as something of a cosmic joke that he's been saddled with the excitable young Frenchman who, to further his own literary ambitions, is bent on hurling them both into every possible adventure that comes their way.
Phileas treats his sister Rebecca with the good natured tolerance of an older brother, but he's quite sensitive to Rebecca's attempts to out-do him, and while appearing never to TRY to beat her at shooting, ju-jitsu or sword-play, he's determined never to let her win.
Phileas knows that Jules' innocent enthusiasm is the perfect antidote to his own cynicism, and Verne's delight in life the perfect leavening for Fogg's darker side.Phileas, by contrast, is a pragmatist, taking every issue on a case by case basis and instinctively opposed to grand theories.

 Chapter In Which Phileas Fogg Shows Himself Equal To The Occasion. of Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne
Phileas Fogg wished to go to Liverpool, but the captain would not carry him there.
Then Phileas Fogg had taken passage for Bordeaux, and, during the thirty hours he had been on board, had so shrewdly managed with his bank-notes that the sailors and stokers, who were only an occasional crew, and were not on the best terms with the captain, went over to him in a body.
This was why Phileas Fogg was in command instead of Captain Speedy; why the captain was a prisoner in his cabin; and why, in short, the `Henrietta' was directing her course towards Liverpool.

 Phileas Fogg (SAJV) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The fictional character of Phileas Fogg was re-written for the science fiction television series The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne and is a substantially different character than the Phileas Fogg in Jules Verne's book Around the World in Eighty Days.
The television series character has a recently deceased father, Sir Boniface Fogg, who was a towering figure at the centre of British Intelligence during the latter part of the Napoleonic Wars and became a close confidant of both Horatio Nelson and the Duke of Wellington.
As a result of his early experiences, Phileas has seen the evil in men's souls and emerged into a state of detachment which gives him a special perspective on life, and a wisdom of his own.
