Fastolfe, Hans Dr. (4551AD-) Born on Aurora. Described as "Aurora's greatest theoretical roboticist". In 4698AD, Fastolfe developed "intersectional analysis" which made it possible to design brains for humaniform robots and, together with Dr Roj Sarton created the humaniform robot; the first of which was R. Daneel Olivaw. The purpose of the humaniform robot was as an experimental device to further understand the workings of the human brain.  He also developed the robot R. Giskard Reventlov whom he considered his "majordomo". Was placed in charge of the Sarton murder inquiry in Spacetown.  Became the leader of the Humanist party on Aurora. In 4724AD he was accused of immobilising his second humaniform robot R. Jander Panell.  He successfully maneuvered the Auroran government to allow Elijah Baley to investigate the case.  The result of the investigation resulted in Fastolfe's absolution.   Fastolfe insisted the Jander had been the victim of a robotic mental freeze-out although his adversaries maintained that the chances of such an event were in the order of 1:100,000.  Fastolfe was the first human known to be interested in creating the science of psychohistory.  An idea known to have been mentally suggested to him by Giskard.  Fastolfe had two daughters.  The first, Lumen, became a leading politician of the Globalist movement of Aurora.  The second, Vasilia Aliena, a roboticist.
