Lawrence Leakey the Third is an esteemed expeditionist, and a Professor of Religious Anthropology at Oxford University — as his father was before him, and his father before that. A stolid partilineage has now carried the torch for three sequential generations, to the point where this endowed chair is practically seen as hereditary. It’s not a stretch to assume therefore that he’s what might tactfully be referred to as “comfortable”.

The field of Anthropology has come a long way since his grandfather’s glory days at behest of the British Empire, and the Third seems a touch more humble; quieter, in comparison. While his predecessor was cultivating a cult-like following with brazen and revolutionary new ideas at the height of the Age of Enlightenment, the new Law doesn’t much like to talk about his accomplishments, a private man who prioritises a stable work-life balance. Silver now streaks his hair, and the impermeable bachelor seems unlikely to be succeeded by a Fourth.

Ethics in Science

The search for knowledge and blindness to his biases have led the Professor down dark paths.

Cunning Linguist

He’s fluent in languages you’ve never even heard of, and his translation services are for hire.

Swiss Foreign Policy

There is no such thing as a necessary war. Law rejects political partisanship in favour of neutrality and nonintervention with the Big Three, and prefers diplomacy to conflict.

The Empire on Which the Sun Sets

His best days are behind him. His looks, his fortune — and most of all, he hopes, his legacy — are all fading into time.

“I silently laugh at my own cenotaph, And out of the caverns of rain, Like a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb, I arise and unbuild it again.”

Percy Bysshe Shelley
