Doctor Wilbur Vincent was a brilliant scientist, with extensive training in biology, zoology, genetics, history, and physics. However, after the Big Death, he's become a hermit and a recluse, and worse, his cognitive functions have deteriorated at the ripe old age of 136. Dr. Vincent's mind holds the key to a cure to mutation - all it would take is a series of specifically engineered viruses, and the entire mutant population would be reversed to regular old animals. In Wilbur's mind, however, he's helping the mutants and he views himself as their friend. Despite being an absolute pacifist, abhorring violence and especially genocide, and especially being no fan of the Empire of Humanity, he nevertheless is a major threat to all mutantkind.
