LATERAL CLUE: Zero Gravity Image = Image is GIF. Zero Gravity is no G. Which means remove G from GIF = If.
NAME CLUE: Emperor Has Twisted Lip = Emperor is King. Twisted Lip is twist the word Lip. The relevant twist here is Lip to Ipl. So Emperor Has Twisted Lip means King contains Ipl. When you fit in Ipl into King you get Kipling.
TRIVIA CLUE: James Bond = 007
FAME CLUE: Forrest Reserve = Forrest is Jungle & to reserve is to Book = Jungle Book.
PERSONALITY: What connects If, Kipling, 007 & Jungle Book? The answer is Rudyard Kipling. He wrote the most popular poem of all time - IF. He also created the ever famous children's tale Jungle Book. As for the 007 connection here's the link - Kipling wrote a sci fi short story on a locomotive with the name 007 long before Ian Fleming chose the number for his James Bond.
