Who's Who of Nomos - Dr. Mind

In a series of articles entitled "Who's Who of Nomos" Street Life and its reporters will bring you weekly exposés on the movers and shakers of our good city, kicking off with the infamous Doctor Mind.

If you have spent anytime at all in Nomos, it is more than likely that you have met or at least know of Doctor Mind, otherwise known as Bruce Schmetterling. Not only a brilliant mind, but also a priceless asset to MetroTek Industries and the citizens of our community.

But there are a few things you may not know about the fair Doctor.

Bruce was the son of German-Italian immigrants, but not for long. At age three his parents were slain by an un-named assailant. He was sent to a rather large orphanage where he learned to love being treated like a number and in turn he himself became in his own words very narcissistic.

It was discovered early in his development that he was gifted. His intellect in the areas of knowledge retention, logic and reasoning were off the charts. He breezed through school and upon graduation discovered that his advancements had caught the attention of a anonymous beneficiary. This benefactor would go on to pay his entire way, through college, grad school, medical school, training courses and much much more. Bruce was a sponge when it came to learning. But it was only after 4 majors, 2 masters degrees and 3 doctorate he finally decided he had learned enough.

But it was just as he walked out of the door of his last class that a man in a trench coat came up to him, and handed him an envelope containing information about MetroTek along with a job offer; an offer that he couldn't refuse.

Arriving in Nomos 8 years ago, the good Doctor has been vital to Metrotek ever since. Doctor Mind believes that the three sciences have a great deal of overlap. "The key to the future lies in the overlap" says Schmetterling, "imagine removing the criminal element of a criminals brain and biologically engineering the same brain segment of someone of the same blood type and then splicing the new piece in place of the old one. Imagine creating a perfect society, a society the way it should function"

"People in this town, might not agree with my views, but frankly I don't give a sh*t. I am here for MetroTek and MetroTek only, they have a problem with that then go take it up with someone who cares"

Sadly, Schmetterling left mid-interview explaining that he had to get back to the lab.

Be sure to keep an eye out for our next Who's Who addition!

  1. Oooh! Yes Doctor Mind is indeed devoted to MetroTek - but he has a wild side too:-) He has been observed shaking his goods at ClubPrimal much to the enjoyment of this observer and we can only hope to see much,much more of this side of the good Doctor's Mind!
