Simmons' first name is an odd one, but he likes it and goes by it. He could, if he wanted, gain a doctorate in 7 fields, but he refuses to, being as he feels it is a waste of time. He is a brilliant chemist, a marvelous doctor, and an expert at weapons design. He currently lives in a Nexus Tower apartment with his cousin Theo Emerson, Johannes O'Malley, and Jeffy Holmes.
