Appearance

A middle aged tall, slight Canadian Chinese (2nd generation) man with short black hair, brown eyes, and androgynous features.

Backstory

Born in 1985, Simon realized at a young age he was different than many others in two ways - he was brilliant, and he was gay. While growing up in a privileged environment sheltered him somewhat from the exclusion that can be felt from both situations, he has always remained sympathetic of those that are labelled 'different' and those, especially talented, whom are repressed under society's norms.

Simon met Miranda Bishop in 2003 when she was in first year university at Johns Hopkins, when she was a 14 year old amidst college students many years older. Miranda was still living at her abusive foster home and commuting, and he immediately knew she needed a friend that understood both being talented, and different. At JH they realized that they had to make a difference in the world, and spent many hours discussing how humanity could be shaped into something better. They both became loyal to the Church of the Transhuman during this period, and both found a more extreme ideology attractive as they grew older. They ended up taking the same genetics doctorals, and assisted on the same team that made breakthroughs in the genetics of aging.

Near the end of their time at JH, their entire team was contacted by Genetek to work for them. The team accepted, but the most brilliant of them, Miranda declined. They have remained friends, although secretly, and often contact each other through secure back channels.

Family and Personal Life

In the years that followed, Simon met his now ex-husband, Leah Sanderson. They separated in 2028, and divorced in 2029. They have a difficult but manageable relationship, given their professional relationship at Genetek. Their three children (12m, 11f, 9f) are astonishing creatures, with profound intellectual, physical and emotional gifts.

Simon remarried Dane Fiorina in 2030. They have a baby boy, born in August 2033 (7 months old on the day of the arrival). Dane is an artist working in many media, though best known for his architectural work, melding organic forms with brutalist buildings. Yggdrasil, the iconic expansion of the Norse Technisk Museum in Oslo, Norway, is his best known work.

Before he met Simon, Dane paused his artistic work to be a father to his child from his previous marriage to Doona. Penn is now 5. In a short few years he has knit a heterogeneous clan around himself, frequently caring for all the children of all the relationships. He is definitely poly by nature and by action.

  • Dane: Husband of Simon
  • Øyvind: 12 year old son of Simon and Leah
  • Tone: 11 year old daughter of Simon and Leah
  • Heidi: 8 year old daughter of Simon and Leah
  • David: 7 month old son of Simon and Dane
  • Doona: Ex wife off Dane, mother of [Penn]]
  • Penn: 7 year old son of Dane and Doona
  • 12 new partners, close family, and students in danger.

Simon's transhumanist views shifted over the years, gradually becoming more extreme. Ultimately it was this passion that drove Leah to found the Post Darwinists, taking the mantle of Manwë. Simon has no interest in political life for himself, but loved - still loves - Leah's spectacular charm and political savvy. Their children show strong tendencies to these traits. Simon did not report to Leah or Manwë directly in any org structure, but held a great deal of sway on his husband's decisions. Their divorce, ultimately, was ideological in nature. Simon chose to back Storm - Varda in the PD - and her less aggressive agenda for dealing with the dangers of Homo Sapiens.

Dane is loyal to Simon first, PD second. He was married to Doona Ameen prior to his marriage to Simon. They have one child (3f) who lives with Doona most of the time.

He is newly augmented with MITOtech (v2.4.4).

All his children were gestated in artificial wombs, and were genetically engineered before conception so the two father's DNA were used to create the fertilized egg. There were many additional genetic alterations made at this stage. These were not strictly legal. Or legal at all, really.
