Captain Robert McKloud is known to some as Bob and was the chief genetic engineer for Project Morpheus. Robert was one of Admiral Owden's closest advisors on project Morpheus.
Both men were brought together as soldiers in the Second Sabor War and became close friends. This friendship was violently tested in the Dreadnought accident in which Robert’s daughter, Bridget, was killed along with 199 others of Project Morpheus' best.
This accident was the final straw for Bob, who had seen the project become a runaway train of which he could no longer be a part. So he resigned his commission and disappeared shortly thereafter.
