Biography: Born on Seria, Harold grew up on the outskirts of the human civilization. A brilliant man, as he grew he began making some key discoveries for the advancement of genetic engineering. When the Serians made their controversial alliance with the alien race known as the Nemesis, Harold began to explore many of their own genetic characteristics through his research. Obtaining blood samples from the alien race, he began to study their own biological and genetic make up. A very interesting subject he discovered was the hive-mind capabilities of the aliens and their capability of ancestral memory. He continued to look deeper into these subjects, but he found his own breakthroughs into genetic engineering could not discover these highly complex genetic codes imbedded within these aliens.

But his research was interrupted when the human forces exiled the Serians and both his wife and daughter had to escape the planet with him. With his daughter making progress into genetic engineering on her own, Harold devoted the next twenty-eight years on board the Reclaimer to studying genetic engineering procedures that would allow them to a habitats flora exponentially faster, which his daughter jokingly named the Garden of Eden Creation Kit (GECK). But Harold kept his own research into the ancestral memory of the alien species to himself, afraid of the military's scientist taking it away from him. He wanted to learn what exactly a memory was, what could they do with it, and could someone else remember things that happened to someone else like with the Nemesis ancestral memory.

But, as the journey took it's toll on the population's resources, the military ordered all civilians and non-esstential personnel to be placed into Cryo sleep until a habitable planet was found. Harold's daughter, Miranda, bravely volunteered to join the crew that would work in shifts to keep the ship in order so that she could continue their research into the GECK. But as Harold was placed into Cryo sleep, he worried that when he awoke he would not remember his own secret project. Or where it came from.

"All endeavor calls for the ability to tramp the last mile, shape the last plan, endure the last hours toil. The fight to the finish spirit is the one characteristic we must posses if we are to face the future as finishers." - Henry David Thoreau
