Professor Nalerof had originally thought that he was working to improve the Gravity Belts keeping the Yietta metropolis afloat. However he eventually realized that the company he was working for was a dummy and that he was in fact contributing to the efforts of a rogue military faction led by Lord Guizel. His research was being used to turn the gravity belts into what his Elysse would later term quota monstrous nightmarequot. Nalerof made an effort to sabotage the Gravity Diffusion Array locking the controls with a password but Guizel found out about his plans and sent soldiers to kill him. In a desparate effort Nalerof took his daughter Elysse and sent her to the surface in an escape pod...just as the soldiers shot him dead.
