Thank you.

This is an attempt to capture for reference a character paper snapshot of the character Joseph Wade Kondor, a major character in the Multiverser novels who debuts in Verse Three, Chapter One and returns in Old Verses New.  This character sheet includes everything that is confirmed about him, plus a few extrapolations, in those two books, and thus represents him as he is in the penultimate chapter.

The picture was dug up on the Internet as an approximate image of him; it's not completely accurate, but it will suffice.

To assist the referee, most entries include at least one coded reference to a chapter or chapters in which the item is mentioned; thus by cross-referencing with the story you can determine the details.  The chapters are identified by which character's story is being told, and thus most of those here begin with "K"; this is followed by a three-digit number indicating the chapter number for that character, not the chapter number for the book.  Thus if you want to find the first reference to his cybernetic eye, you read here that it appears in K003, and on the index page for the first novel you search for the text "Kondor 3" and that will take you to the link for that chapter.  Obviously the chapters beginning "H" are Lauren's story, and thus "Hastings", those beginning "S" are Bob's story, "Slade", and those beginning "B" are Derek's story, "Brown".  The first novel ends with Kondor 41, Slade 42, and Hastings 43.  The second contains Kondor 42 through 96, Hastings 44 through 95, and Brown 1 through 55.

Atheist, will not recognize existence of magic.
Nervous about cemeteries and places where the dead are kept; says it's a reminder of his own mortality, but knows that's not true.

Personal History

Joseph Wade Kondor was a bachelor, a U. S. Soldier, a medic, versed out by some type of military experiment.  In NagaWorld, he was killed by a giant spider; he didn't get a good look at it beyond shooting it.  His stay in NagaWorld was probably short; there is no evidence he saw anything other than the spiders in the glass city.  His Uncle Ty was a hunter and a woodsman, first mentioned in Sherwood Forest.  He had an Uncle Whit who used witticisms and proverbs, first mentioned while he was seeking the Vorgo.  He doesn't often curse or swear; his mother washed his mouth out with soap for doing so, and he remembers.

Versed out because of army electronics experiment using scriff, about the year 2000 K085.

In Mary Piper (beta) he was able to hide among the crew for some time by borrowing some clothes and pretending to be one of them.  When caught, he used the "strange woman in a bar" explanation for his presence.  Following an accident, his left eye was replaced by a Meritronics Cybereye.  The controls for it are on the inside of his left forearm.  He can adjust the range of the rod-like sensors to receive light at a wider or narrower range of frequencies, and adjust each of three sets of cone-like sensors to almost any radio frequency, perceiving these as red, blue, and green.  He is teetotal, avoiding alcohol and any other substance which affects his mind more than caffeine.  In the end, he caught a grenade so that a friend, Walters, would not be hit by the blast.  It was during that event that he began to realize how precious the lives of indigs were.

He has an Aunt Zakiya, in her mid-thirties, younger than his mother, who tried to get him to go to church, and made good chocolate chip cookies.  Uncle Ty taught him to shoot and gave him his first gun, and also taught him about hunting.  Uncle Whitney, his grandfather's brother, is married to Aunt Mary.  There was lots of extended family and friends around.
