- Complete Monster: Joseph Grey Veil deliberately took advantage of Terran xenophobia to get anti-alien laws passed. He also endeavored to pass anti-cloning laws solely for his own gain. His intent was to do whatever he wanted to innocent clones. Veil engages in a series of rapes with as many clones as he can, and deliberately infects them with syphilis just so he can see the results of the disease on the Designer Babies he fathers.
