He talks to bugs. They talk back.


Formerly a respected professor and graduate of the University of Maryland, Rudyard was recently associated with the Smithsonian Department of Systematic Entomology. Now he's on the curatorial staff with the American Museum of Natural History. Now? He's a fugitive terrorist, hiding in his wife's sanctuary of the Bronx Zoo.


Entomopathy - This is the mental ability to communicate with insects. Any insect. Soft or hard bodied, eight legs or more. Those that are alive and within the vicinity of course. (So he wouldn't be able to call up his buggy friends from Florida to NYC.) Along with this communication is the control over hordes of insects. Creepy much? He'll never need the pest control with this talent!
