Middleton Rothery is a Bolivaran paleontologist and archaeologist (b. 1065 TI).

Description / Specifications[edit]

He is best known for his text A Deeper History (1109), in which he reveals his discoveries on Ambrym and Besayes in the Medurma (Dagudashaag 2124) system, which purport to show that they were inhabited at around -355,000. Rothery attributes this settlement to a previously unknown technologically advanced group of S'mrii, which he calls the ‘Hierarchs’. Carballoy and Plasteel fragments found at the sites indicate a level of technology at least equal to current Imperial maximum. Rothery states that he retrieved a complete mummified S’mrii specimen from the site on Besayes, and holographs of the find are included in the book. The specimen was, however, destroyed in a shuttle accident before it could be subjected to further study on Medurma (world).

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Rothery has little standing with others in his field, who mainly regard him as a crackpot. Since 1112 TI, he has become increasingly irrational, and has made only fleeting appearances since 1114, when he claimed that he was being pursued by a S'mrii “hit team”.
