Registry of the Evolved Database
||June 1, 1984
||Hamilton Heights #504
||Scott, Jean (living in Maine)
||A Columbia grad student turned professor, most comfortable within the ivory tower. Initially brushed off the Evolved as Somebody Else's Problem - but with that option off the table, he's doing his best to stay off the radar, while still getting a few protests in.
"Can you do Division? Divide a loaf by a knife - what's the answer to that?"
- Instruction: Good at explaining how things work, and adjusting pace and direction to match who he's talking to. Now that he's teaching groups instead of just tutoring here and there, he's building up the ability to identify a middle ground where there are neither too many skipping ahead nor too many falling behind - if a few are falling behind, then they should ask for more help outside class time.
- Science and technology: Has a fair grasp of the immediate engineering applications of his research, mostly large-scale projects with long lifetimes rather than the rapid cycle of small consumer products. He's less well acquainted with things like quantum physics and genetics.
- Mechanical repair: Handy with the sorts of things that a standard set of Craftsman tools can cover. Tightening pipe fixtures, nailing down loose fenceposts, that sort of thing. Auto repair, not so much, as it's gone so far toward No User-Serviceable Parts Inside these days.
- Martial arts: Tried out a tae kwon do class back at Bowdoin, and continues to revisit it off and on. He's not a black belt, nor is he all that physically gifted - but it keeps him in decent shape, and if forced into a fight, he wouldn't be completely helpless.
||This Bird Has Flown
||The mouthy kid turns up, passes out, wakes up and runs for it.
||The offer of crash space is belatedly taken up.
||Theory into Practice
||Can his math-fu be used to help repair a broken timeline?
||Right Hand, Left Hand
||Who's she been talking to? Who's he been talking to?
||Mind Your Manners
||Anna, Evan, Keagan, Yana
||Tense introductions all around at a pricey lunch spot.
