Trevize, Golan.  (466FE-)  Nephew of the Foundation's Commissioner of Transportation.  Served two years in the Foundation Navy, attaining the rank of Lieutenant.   Lived in the suburb of Flexner on Terminus. Elected as a Councilman of Terminus 498FE.  Trevize was a firm believer that the Seldon Plan did not exist because it appeared to be too perfect and thus, must be under the complete control of the previously believed destroyed Second Foundation.  These views resulted in his arrest for treason and exile from Terminus by Mayor Branno.  His exile was under the pretext that he was to search for the mythical planet Earth with Janov Pelorat.  In fact he was to search for the Second Foundation.  As it happened, Trevize actually stumbled upon Gaia where he was asked to choose the future of the Galaxy - the Foundation Federation, the Second Foundation or Galaxia.  Trevize chose Galaxia. But he was not happy with his decision and decided that, if he found Earth, he would understand the choose he had made.  His search took him first to Comporellon and then to the ancient Spacer worlds of Aurora, Solaria and Melpomenia.  He then found the last remnants of Earth on the planet Alpha where he was infected by Hiroko with a inactive virus but left before it could be made active. Finally he found Earth and discovered it was truly radioactive and uninhabitable.  However on its nearby natural satellite, the Moon, he found R. Daneel who had, all along, been the puppetmaster, maneuvering Trevize ever since he left Terminus.
