Ardus was a former officer of the Federation War Department and the last surviving member of the bureau which had set up the project on Bucol-2. He had been blinded by a radiation flare and was equipped with a sonoscope that stopped him bumping into anything. Servalan had her associate Borr track him down and send him to her ship.

Ardus said the project was oral record only and he required authorisation from the High Council to divulge it: Only six of them had known about it and he wasn't sure if the president had been told. Although Servalan had presented herself to him as Commissioner Sleer, her comment that she hadn't been told and her voice caused Ardus to realise her true identity. When she threatened his family, Ardus told her what he knew under protest: The project was led by Justin and involved an underground bunker and supplies, and was intended to create immunity to radiation through genetic experimentation.

Dismissed, Ardus apologised for mentioning Servalan's name, saying he was aware she was a non-person. "Sleer" pretended the matter was closed, but once Ardus was returned to his ship, she had her Captain open fire and destroy it, killing him. (D: Animals)
