Tiberius Zeno

Basic Info:

Player: Toz76

Position: Anomalous Botany Researcher

Demeanor: Arrogant, Detached, Clinical, Sarcastic

Nature: Despite acting detached and clinical, Tiberius actually desires friendship and approval, and a life of bachelorhood tends to overanalyse interpersonal interactions in the hope that even casual remarks are some complex code indicating the speakers undying love for him. His fear of being judged leads to his clinical front. The fact that pretending to want to be detached from others while wanting a friend is not a good strategy seems to go over his head. He also holds grudges over the most random of things.

Description: 6'1", 150 lbs, blonde hair, hazel eyes, Caucasian. Typically wears all black due to a mistaken belief that it brings out his eyes, favors informal plain shirts and slacks, although is occasionally seen in a suit. Rarely stands still, usually fidgets or taps surfaces when not actively working.

Personal History:

Born in 1930 to a father obsessed with the ancient Roman Empire, Tiberius spent his childhood in America, specifically the Seattle region of Washington State, where he spent many long hours in a public park climbing trees. It was the only happy memory of an otherwise troubled lovely childhood that he was too ungrateful to fully enjoy, hence his decision to study botany at a French university once the war ended. Though a real "ladies man" in college (in his mind, at least), he stopped getting dates to focus on his studies, something he later cited as his greatest regret in a needlessly melodramatic tone. After graduating in 1953, Tiberius went on multiple botanical expeditions in Italy and Germany. An encounter with a field of agressive anomalous plants that grew tubes of thorium-laced toothpaste in place of leaves, which he was able to placate by planting mint around them and leaving them several sets of dentures he stole from a fellow researcher, led to his recruiting by the Foundation.
