Jarvis Babbit was an English mathematician, analytical philosopher, scientist and head of the SEAS, who would seem to have been the first person to come up with the idea of a programmable computer.

A cold, yet brilliant scientist, Babbit had morals and ethics more suited to Victorian England than the modern world. Born in London in the late 18th century, he graduated from Cambridge in 1805. As a student in Cambridge, Jarvis Babbit stumbled across documents which seemed to indicate that there was another world, which could be reached by entering 'gateways'.

Babbit and a single companion were the first to venture into the other world. Thanks to his genius and constant astronomical observation the scientist was finally successful in applying his theories to the other world, as well. In October the two finally returned to Earth, after having spent over a year in the other world. Babbit decided to remain in the other world, to rule, whilst constantly returning to Earth.
