A Turning Wheel
Biologist and not in the mood for any Harry Potter jokes (he's a grump in both senses of the word).
Cyrus is a rare pooka – more for being serious than for being an exotic snake species – and spends little time away from the biology department at Harvard or the Natural History Museum. Once every year or so he heads off to the Amazon or Africa and it was after one of these trips in 2006 that he became much more solitary and focused on his work.
Others are concerned that he’s at risk of forgetting himself, but even those with good intentions are like to get a chilly reception if they try to interrupt him while he’s in the lab.
