|The elderly administrator of a Society research facility called Site Zero, and one of the founders of the Society as it is today. He is a consummate scientist, always directly involved in research and development despite his position. Many of the tools and weapons currently used by Society members are his inventions. He has secretly harbored a desire to go to the moon since before the Society took its current form. In the course of his work to realize that ambition, he learned of the automagods used by the moondwellers. He became obsessed with their power, and that obsession eroded his sanity. Before founding the Society, he was a military man. Guzaletha, a fellow founder, is an old acquaintance of his.
