The Sun of Atom is a non-hostile glowing one living in the basement of the Holy Light Monastery in 2277.


When a human transcends mortality and straddles the ether, they can be seen to be both living in the "real" and "spiritual" realm. Mother Curie III firmly believes her own son to have taken the final steps on this journey. In fact, much of her son's higher functions have disappeared, and only instinct is preventing this confused glowing one from attacking.[1]
