The Secret Garden
Ehud Mizrachi was Gideon Gov’s mentor at UMIST. A demanding teacher, Mizrachi opened Gideon’s eyes to a world of science beyond his wildest dreams, where cutting edge particle physics blended seamlessly with Aristotelian discourses on the nature of matter. Mizrach died in a devastating explosion at his lab.
Gideon suspects that Mizrachi staged his own death, because he asked Giddy to remove certain valuable papers from the lab shortly before the explosion. These suspicions were confirmed when Ehud Mizrachi later returned and revealed that he was really Neheb-Kau. He adopted this false identity to better watch over Gideon.
