Algernon Weight is a National Assembly Leader (NAL) and the highforeman of Detritus’ largest intercavern shipping company. He is married to Jeshua Weight, a First Citizen, and is Jorgen’s father. The family lives in the lower caverns of Igneous.[1][2][3]

Algernon is either currently, or has previously been, considered part of Detritus' military.[3] He knows some amount about military tactics, including Lanchester’s Law.[3] Algernon is an extremely influential member of the community and has achieved high merit for his accomplishments. As such he has access to high class and luxury technology, such as private fighter jets, of which the family owns three.[1]

Algernon is a strong supporter of Dr. Thior's claim that the defect does not exist. Ironsides finds his immovability on the issue frustrating, believing his threshold for proof to be too high.[2]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Algernon is a greying man, who is stiff and blunt.[3] He wears military clothing, along with military pins denoting his achievements.[3] He is critical of Ironsides leadership of the Defiance Defense Force (DDF) and, along with NALs Valda Mendez and Ukrit, confronts her days before the second shipyard is due to fall from Detritus' atmosphere. Despite his criticisms, he supports Ironsides' plan to send the entire DDF to capture the shipyard.[3]
