Mohandas Lakesh was born in India in 1952. He came to the US at age 16 to attend MIT, where he gained a doctoral degree three years later, then went to work for NASA. He eventually rose to become the head of Project Cerberus and was later read into the Archon Directive and met OL-misc. When the mat-trans system was perfected, he became the first human test subject.
Lakesh was in the Anthill when skydark happened, and put himself into cryogenic suspension not long after. He was revived decades later to carry on his work, including creating a genetically superior human. He is dedicated to the twin causes of overthrowing the barons and ensuring the survival of the human race, and will go to any end to do so.
