Dr. David Bucher Keller

Born in Boston to a couple of European immigrants, David had always shown a fascination for natural science, but those regarding the inner workings of the brain were his favorite topic. This obsessive fascination, in part fueled by his father’s line of work (a respected neurologist), led David to pursue greater academic studies, as he considered that those provided by his High School were simply not enough.

Overview


Born in Boston to a couple of European immigrants, David Bucher Keller had always shown a fascination for natural science, but those regarding the inner workings of the brain were his favorite topic. This obsessive fascination, in part fueled by his father’s line of work (a respected neurologist), led Keller to pursue greater academic studies, as he considered that those provided by his High School were simply not enough. Amongst various aspirations, Keller’s goal was to become a scientist like his father, although in a more obscure topic than his: the mechanisms and chemistry of human memories, as well as how they can affect someone on a physical level.

His years as a student in both Dover-Sherborn Regional Middle School and the MIT are documented to have been prolific, with Keller obtaining a PhD in Brain and Cognitive Sciences in 2004. It was also during this period that Keller worked for 4 months in an Authority-owned research laboratory, where he was offered a job at a “Research Center”5 in light of his exceptional performance, an offer he took by the end of the semester.

Dr. Keller would spend the next years working in the Office of Analysis and Science, jumping between departments every couple of months as needed. It wasn’t until 2006 that he would finally settle in the recently formed Department of Applied Amnestic Sciences, a position he would hold for the good part of the six years. During this time, Keller would become part of the “Anomalous Experimentation Team X33” (AET-X33), a group tasked with the further development and synthesizing of chemical-based amnestics. These endeavours eventually landed AET-X33 into a collaborative research fund with the Viderics R&D Department for the advancement in experimental Lethium-Videric drugs.6 Following the disbandment of AET-X33, Keller would continue to work within Viderics R&D as a senior researcher. In 2021, Keller applied for an abroad assignment in RPC-727 to study the possible uses of EGs as amnestics, departing to the Falkland Islands on February the 18th as a Glyph calligrapher.


Further Information


  • Dr. Keller may be easily recognized by GH-P01, which has been semi-permanently attached to his head.
  • Has been nicknamed “Necroglyphiac” by personnel. While initially denounced by its colleagues, he does not appear to mind the existence of the nickname.
  • Until further developments in biological repair can be found, Dr. Keller's throat has been outfited with artificial vocal cords.
