Leslie Bishop is a biology prodegy currently working at the Lightman Research Center under Dr. Michael Batton. Before being scouted by the center, she had been accepted into MIT as an honorary graduate student after a stellar high school career. Her work on tendon linkages earned her a spot in Science at seventeen, and would doubtless have many others by now if her work wasn't top secret.
Leslie was born in 1994 to Martha and Alexander Bishop. The eldest of the three Bishop children, she showed an early interest in how living things worked, and began experiments of her own as early as seven. Her younger brother Lewis did not share her enthusiasm for biology, instead spending most of his free time working on new uses for the family computer.
It is likely that she continues to develop prosthetics, and that many of the advances the upper class enjoy come directly from her lab.
