Alex's tutor and Director of Studies of the Roche-Berenguer Institute, he has a love-hate relationship with Alex, his favourite student.
Really conservative, he always gets desperate when Alex exposes his theories. He recognized a long time ago Alex's talent and skills, and keeps hoping that he will eventually end his attempts to blow up the whole established structure of the humankind evolution embracing the official conservative theories.
That's why he still keeps Alex in an isolated office in a subbasement of the Institute, although the latest developments have endangered even this.
At the far end, he appreciates Alex and sees in him a brilliant academic future, if only he would stop focusing on his extravagant theories.
