It’s come round to that time again for another character feature!  Tonight, I’ll introduce you to Ganesh, an associate of Ed’s at the Power Station.

Ganesh and his family were refugees who made it to Wales after the collapse and settled in Llanberis. His background was that of academia, in the fields of engineering and physics.  With extensive experience and a keen scientific mind, it was natural for him to end up working on developing the station alongside Ed, helping to adapt it for operation in the shattered environment which was post-collapse Britain.

Patrick encounters him on one of his visits to the power station to speak with Ed. A quick witted character of Asian background, and with a keen analytical mind, he provides an amusing counterbalance of opinion to some of the topics Ed discusses during Patrick’s visit. He also provides some fascinating insights into a field of technology in which he had a specific interest during his years of academia.  None of it is mundane, though, and Patrick is certainly impressed by the depth of knowledge which Ganesh possesses. The relevance of this to the story as a whole may become apparent within due course!
