Blakes 7 Wiki

Saymon was one of the Lost, a group of six Auronar who were exiled from Auron. They took up refuge on a deserted planet where they experimented with genetic engineering, creating a web-like substance and also the Decimas, who they intended to use as a workforce. By the time the Liberator approached the planet, Saymon was the only surviving member of the Lost, although his body contained the minds of all six, and even he was shrunken and dependent on a life support chamber. He telepathically controlled Geela and Novara, two constructs who had no life of their own.

With the flutonic power cells that powered his life support failing, Saymon sensed the approach of the Liberator and telepathically gained control of Cally, having her pilot the ship into the web surrounding the planet. He then communicated with the crew through Jenna, inviting them to the surface. When Blake began to suspect the truth of the situation, Saymon first spoke to him through Geela and then had him brought for a face to face meeting. While replacement power cells would allow him to free the Liberator, Saymon also planned to use them to release radiation that would wipe out the Decimas, who were running free in the compound.

Although he and Blake disagreed over the Decimas, Saymon did send Geela and Novara to help guide Avon to safety when he teleported down with the power cells. The cells were fitted, but before Saymon's plan could be carried out, the Decimas attacked the laboratory, killing Geela and Novara, and also allowing Blake and Avon to free the Liberator and teleport to safety. Saymor was killed when the Decimas smashed his life support system. (A: The Web)
