Dr. Marjorie Phillips

One of the head scientists of the project and Al's guardian and designer. She's opposed of sending the Species to Arras Chanka while wiping their memories, but she doesn't have too much choice on that matter either.
  • Abusive Precursors: Averted with her, as she treats her works as living and intelligent people and not as disposable experiments sent to their own luck in another planet.
  • Anti-Heroine: She's a nice person at heart, but forced to do inmoral things like manipulating wildlife and doing genetic experiments on them due to her job.
  • Berserk Button: Calling Al both a rat and a pet is an easy way to piss her off.
  • Advertisement:
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia/Sadistic Choice: Forced to do this on Al at the end.
  • The Last DJ: Inverted: She's the only scientist on her group who doesn't quit the project, even if she despise the way the experiments are being treated and the fact they're going to be sent to another planet without any memories of the Earth and the human race.
  • Motherly Scientist: She treats her experiments as persons and not as mindless animals, compared with Dr. Khai.


Dr. Khai

Dr. Phillips's boss and the chief leader of the project, or at least from their designed position.


One of Dr. Phillips's experimental subjects and her personal friend of sorts.
