Description Edit | History

From the manual:

Kauffman comes from a good New England family. His grandmother, who was born a Van Den Straaten, claims that her own grandparents came over on the Mayflower. His father was a professor of science at Harvard. His mother died while giving birth to William, who was 3 months premature. He grew up a sickly child.

While still in his teens Kauffman served as a medic in Vietnam. There he was injured and sent home having been awarded a Purple Heart. After attending Harvard, Kauffman began research in quantum physics, which at this time is a newly developing field of knowledge.

Kauffman was married twice and has two sons, one by each wife. He is a good father when he has time to see his sons, but his involvement in his work relegated family life to a distant second place.

After completing "Supercord" theory, he won the Nobel Prize for science.

He sits on many committees and on the Boards of some of the most powerful American companies (particularly a merchant bank and a Life Sciences group).

After publishing a paper on the existence of an infinite number of parallel worlds, however, he wa no longer taken seriously.

The military approached Kauffman and proposed to fund his ideas and introduce him to Anthony Xue.

Xue and Kauffman didn't get along but they needed each other to complete their research. The first successful test of the "Sidestep" project went wrong and generateed a black hole.

Kauffman wasn't sure of precisely which element malfunctioned and wanted only to fix the problem so he could continue to further develop his theories.
