Blakes 7 Wiki

Pinder was a mathematical prodigy that Egrorian took under his wing. He was eighteen when he went into hiding with Egrorian on Malodar but was exposed to Hofel's radiation which aged him fifty years in as many seconds, meaning that ten years later he had the appearance of a man in his late 70s. He served as Egrorian's assistant but lacked mental faculties, needing to learn rhymes to understand simple concepts.

He met Avon and Vila when Egrorian summoned them to the planet and had his arm broken by Egrorian for cheating at a chesslike game. He aided Egrorian in his plan to crash the pair's shuttle by hiding a speck of neutron material on board. He was the one who reported that they had deviated from Egrorian's planned path and overheard Egrorian and Servalan planning to abandon him on the planet. After Avon and Vila had escaped and Servalan had left, Pinder, smarting at Egrorian's attempted betrayal, flooded the laboratory with Hofel's radiation, causing them both to age to death. (D: Orbit)
