Dr. LaPeer

The brilliant and twisted Dr. Lawrence LaPeer is M.O.T.H.E.R.’s resident genius, and “absent father” of Baby Badass. He was the first doctor to fuse human and animal DNA, finally cracking the “manimal” barrier for real.

LaPeer broke with the intellectual ranks during the Great Government Re-Evolution, choosing to work with the military and not risking arrest or going underground like the rest of the country’s intelligentsia. He is conflicted about his work, but his outsized ego doesn’t like to be second-guessed, and ultimately his need to witness the end result of his grotesque experiments supersede what little was left of his humanity. He’s also half-French; a fact that he attempts to hide but is quite obvious to everyone else.
