Campion (Winta McGrath)

Campion being confronted by Father.

Of those brought to Kepler-22b, Campion was the last to be born and became the last to survive. This perhaps makes him deserving of the name Campion, as it is likely that Mother and Father’s creator, who he was named after, was one of the last atheists to survive.
