Don Germane Munro ("Old Dusty"):
Emeritus Professor from the Humanitas Skool, who champions the "Past"
(which few can in The Inztitut now that it is so out of favor). 78, Conzec,
with a pleasing, kind hearted personality and obscure sense of humor, "Old
Dusty," has more friends than enemies. Though seemingly growing senile,
he is much sharper and smarter than most surmise. His outward mission, who
few attempt to deter him from now that he seems so harmless, is to save
the few thousand "dusty" old hardcopy books rotting away in the
basement library dungeons of the various colleges of The Inztitut. His other
agenda is to provide what counsel he can to those who seek wisdom from the
lessons of the past.
