Dr. Xenobius, Ministry of Science
Dr. Xenobius (†) was assigned to the Ministry of Science for the Neosapien Commonwealth.
Xenobius was an Alpha Neosapien, scientist and the presumed inventor of the GRAF Shield. Despite his knowledge of technology, he wasn't actually capable of fully understanding the device. The real inventor was Professor Algernon, who was seen as a mere lab assistant and an underling.
In truth, Algernon was a collaborator who permitted Xenobius to take credit for his discoveries in exchange for sparing him the "...petty intrusions of the outside world.". Despite the acclaim the agreement brought him, Xenobius felt humiliated by the whole affair.
Eventually, without the assistance of Algernon, Xenobius failed to produce results and took the blame when Algernon sabotaged the GRAF Shield on Venus which destroyed half of the Neosapien's Venus Fleet. Xenobius was executed for his failures and the GRAF Shield project was temporily put on hold.
