Arthur Rowe was once a Colonel in Britain’s Royal Air Force. He witnessed Dane Mar Vo’s debut of Homo Sapiens Facticius and immediately vowed to bring about their downfall. Calling them inhuman abominations, he followed Marr Vo to Mars to ensure his goal.

He reasoned that facilitating a religious doctrine would be the best way to ensure peace. Quickly ascending to Archdeacon of the VIGIL Clergy, he in essence became the most politically powerful man on the planet.
