Dr. Binary is an evangelical preacher. Not allied to any particular religious sect, Dr. Binary has invented his own mission, the Church of the Righteous Zealot. The name of Dr. Binary’s church is an attempt to turn the negative comments made by his detractors into a positive message to his followers – ‘be zealous in your righteousness and only good can come from it’.
And Dr. Binary’s followers heed his words: they are extremely zealous in their attempts, through legislation and/or bullying, to oppress gay, lesbian, transgender, and bisexual people; anyone who digresses sexual or gender norms. With adherents in countries across all continents, Dr. Binary feeds off his followers’ fear of difference and diversity within human sexuality and gender. His scare tactics have the power to persuade governments to enact legislation to ward off the threat from the ‘gay agenda’ and his followers to open their purses to fund his work. Dr. Binary is an extremely wealthy man.
Nobody knows where Dr. Binary’s hatred of those who are not 100 percent heterosexual came from. Many reporters have attempted to get at what it is that drives him; something in his childhood, an encounter in his teens that confused him, a relationship that broke up because his lover was gay, a closeted feeling of his own, but nobody has uncovered a single point of motivation for his desire to purge society. It seems he simply gets a kick from knowing he has the power to stir his followers to exhibit the basest of human instincts, to marginalise and hate a minority. The minority Dr. Binary selected could have been any group, but he chose the LGBT community.
Dr. Binary’s first run-in with Transman, a.k.a. Michael Dillon, came during an anti same-sex marriage rally where Dr. Binary was invited to be the keynote speaker. The LGBT activist, Ali Gillies, well-known to Dr. Binary, and some of her cronies attempted to disrupt the rally. One of her friends, Michael Dillon, an archaeologist, was caught up in the rally on his way to lecture to a group of students. Dillon had in his bag what he believed to be a worthless old artefact, a torch that he had found the previous year during a dig in Rouen, but as Dr. Binary started to speak the torch began to emit a white light. As Dr. Binary’s speech became more and more impassioned, the torch’s light became more intense until it exploded in a blinding beam of pure white.
Dr. Binary was among those blinded by the Rouen torch that day. Others who also lost their sight later regained it as they learned to embrace diversity and to lead more tolerant lives. Dr. Binary has never recanted and he now wears his blindness as a badge of honour, demonstrating to the world the evil that deviants carry out. He is sworn to destroy Transman and the Rouen torch.
