Blakes 7 Wiki

The old man was a prisoner in the cells on Goth. In reality, he was the former charl, the father of Gola, Rod and Tara. His sons had deposed and imprisoned him. He was the one who kept Lurgen's brainprint on a medallion around his neck, but it was taken by Travis at some point prior to the Liberator crew encountering him.

The old man was first seen by Blake while he was waiting in the cell area for Rod, and Vila was later imprisoned in the cell next to him. His old fool, who still recognised the old man as his master, later joined him in the cells and provided him with a drink.

After the deaths of Gola and Rod, Blake, Jenna and Vila went to open the cells but found the old man dying and the brain print gone. Before he died, the old man told Blake "A fool knows everything and nothing", the trigger phrase that caused the fool to recite Star One's co-ordinates. (B: The Keeper)
