Called "Todd King" on your planet, Void has served as a contractor for various federal agencies, including DoD, MDA, and NASA. Already on the spectrum, an injury catalyzed Acquired Savant Syndrome (with the most amusing acronym of "ASS"), granting him several interesting new abilities. Now, as a mega savant, he is both a hyperpolymath and hyperpolyglot. He has created over 400 intellectual properties in several dozen disparate realms, including Chaotic Systems, Cosmology, Cryptography, Logistics, and Nanotechnology.

Previously, he mutated from lead guitarist to vocalist, playing in several bands in the southern heavy metal scene, opening for acts as diverse as Lynyrd Skynyrd and Pantera while in Zaemon Blaiz. In league with his allies at Nova Eth Publishing, Inc., he created the SenZar role-playing game, which sold in 14 countries, and has virally influenced certain Void-based themes in both the tabletop and computer genres, and even in the world of comics.

Currently, Void has joined forces with his former NASA peer, Dave Newton, to create the new world of EarthZero, wherein they and others will explore the boundaries of magick, technomagick, hekatek, and Simulation Theory.

 

Zaemon Blaiz

In 1989, three members of Zaemon Blaiz merged their Baton Rouge musical nucleus with two members of other popular metal bands from New Orleans, creating a new hybrid evolution of Zaemon Blaiz. The enjoyed a bright, meteoric arc of success, opening for major music acts such as: Pantera, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zebra, Lilian Axe, and EZO.

Fortunately, a recently discovered bootleg videocassette tape recording of their first gig with their new lineup was discovered. Taken at The Quarry in Baton Rouge, LA, in 1989, the bootleg, though of inferior audio recording quality, captures the unique vitality of the band.

In it, Void demonstrates his 8+ octave voice with his soul-shattering Void screams. For those who must know: It's a form of Tuvan singing, with a primary note accompanied by another higher, whistle-register note, distinctly interwoven via sinusoidal oscillation. Some of the more notable ones occur in: "Creeping Death", "Lightning Strikes Again", "Eulogy" (sub-piano low note), "Rock and Roll", and "Runnin’ Wild".

Zaemon Blaiz is: Void "Todd King": Vox ; Brent Kelly: Guitar/BVox ; Asghar Naqvi: Drums/BVox ; Rick Naqvi: Guitar/BVox; John Cannatella: Bass/BVox.

A brief note for those who might be subject to stereotypes: Brent and Asghar are both triple-boarded research physicians, Rick is Vice President of Sales at PreSonus, and John owns the Coffee Call chain in Baton Rouge.
