Born in Horsell, England. Graduated from Cambridge with a Masters in Quantum Matter, and went on to earn a Bachelor in Philosophy from the OU. Recruited by the Foundation at the age of 27 for his affinity for tangential thinking, and marked resilience in the face of normality-breaking situations, he was immediately and systematically assigned to SCP-055 by the automated systems. Here he did phenomenal work in the feild of memetics. Or maybe he didn't. No-one's really sure.
Due to the nature of 055, he believes he's done no work for the Foundation at all, and has become paranoid about being designated Class-D, as have many colleagues, who observe him entering an 'empty' containment building at the start of his shift, and leaving at the end having "Achieved absolutely nothing". Of course, he maintains that he didn't achieve 'nothing,' but lacking any evidence to prove himself. The only noticeable effect of his work has manifested as a minor obsession with memetics; and memory and knowledge retention.
In fact, the past eighteen months of 'pointless' work have been allowed entirely due to the footnote "not actually useless" at the bottom of his file, written and verified by a number of Level 4 and above staff, none of which recall why. They only remember that it wasn't a trick. Dr Polysophos is totally unaware of both the footnote, and his Level 4 benefactors.

In a last ditch attempt to do something verifiable, progressive, and worthy of not being Class D'd, he left his endless work on 055 and volunteered himself for Tamlin house as a long-term researcher. After all, if Class D's get their freedom in Tamlin House, surely he'd get recognition?
