A genius geneticist who's certifiably mad, he's referred to as grasp by means of the unspeakable creations of his predecessor—monstrous creatures, neither human nor animal yet a few nightmarish hybrid. but as terrible because the stranded govt respectable unearths those abominations, it's the fact at the back of Dart’s experiments that relax Roberts’s blood—for it's going to open broad a window onto an inescapable way forward for vacancy, ashes, and death.
