Cornelius is the old man who helps run Rose's Bed and Breakfast in Modoc in the year 2241. He seems to have a form of senile dementia, and it is hard to obtain any information from him as "certain phrases seem to set him off".
His wife Rose, whom he confusingly says he's going to marry some day, runs the kitchen.

He claims a man named Farrel has been his best friend for thirty or forty years, but he has recently be enraged by him as he believes that he has stolen his pocket watch.
