Mr. Nobody: A man who identifies himself as an employee of Mycroft Ward and attempts to capture the second Eric Sanderson. He is described initially as a well-dressed and confident man, though it becomes clear that he is no longer completely human. Ward has apparently devised chemical means, pills, to build up and maintain the aspects of Mr. Nobody's personality, while at the core he remains only the Concept of some former self.
“Geniuses don't go mad. That's what people don't understand. They go out so far out that the water is like glass and they can see for miles and they can see so much, and in ways people have never seen before. They go out over such depths, down down down and down, and some of them get taken. Something rushes up out of their thoughts, from the insides of their own heads and through the act of looking and thinking itself - because the deep blue is in their too, do you understand? And it takes them.”
