Alien Hunter
Alien Hunters are persons, who are – as the name already says, on a hunt after extraterrestial ones. They belong to a secret special force at the FBI. Nothing stops them and they even put innocent people away to receive their goal. As for example Agent Pierce. After Ms. Topolsky was exposed as FBI Agent by Alex, Pierce got the mission to unmask Max as an alien and to take him as a prisoner – and he succeeds. After he imprisoned Max, he tortures him and tries to bring him to make a confession. In addition, Pierce wants to find out how the communicators work. But Max friends can save him and Pierce gets killed by Michael. Nasedo shapeshifts into Pierce and represents him at the FBI. He succeeds to make the Special Unit look silly. Besides the ‘professional’ alien hunter people like Everett Hubble, who have personal reasons, to hunt extraterrestrials.

Antar is the homeplanet, located in the Whirlwind Galaxy. Max, Isabel and Michael don’t have exact memories of their homeplanet. But along with Tess, Max begins to remember some details. Antar has three moons, burnt orange and there are no clouds. It looks very surreal like a painting. The water is much thicker than the water on Earth. Heavier. Tess remembers the feeling of swimming through it, “..the water reforms around your body and it feels like you’re swimming in… jello.” Once, Zan was the king of this planet. He was married to Ava. Together with his Commander Rath he pleaded for peace. Vilandra, Zan’s sister, fell in love with their enemy Kivar.

Atherton, James P.
(1911 – 1959) James Atherton was born from humble origins in East Pohawnee, Tennessee in 1911. Raised during a difficult time in America, Atherton watched as both World War I and the depression tore his family apart. Taking solace in watching the skies, young Atherton impressed the stronomy department at East Pohawnee Technical Institute enought to gain a full scholarship-and a new star watcher was born. At first, Atherton dug into his studies with relish. But he soon wearied of charting star courses and light beams refracting off nova bursts. When his curiosity was peaked by infamous 1927 Buffalo Visitation, he knew he’d found his true calling – extra-terrestrial contact with this planet. Atherton is described my Milton Ross as “A bit on the alternative side". The book author had an underground following, but was never truly embraced by the mainstream. He wrote in his book that aliens wouldn’t possess the lung capacity or brain capacity for more than short-term survival on Earth. Atherton was on to something amazing, possibly direct contact. Legend has it that he was abducted by aliens because he disappeared in 1959. In fact, Atherton made ‘contact’ years after the Roswell incident. He met the alien Nasedo and wrote the the book “Among Us”, which was published in 1955. According to River Dog, Nasedo gave a pendant with an alien symbol to Atherton and he was one of the only people Nasedo trusted. Atherton disappeared in 1959. In that year, he was killed by Nasedo. James Valenti Sr., father of Sherrif Jim Valenti, was the sheriff in charge at this time and he discovered the body of the famous UFOlogist. The body was left with a silverhandprint, identical to the one Max left on Liz when he healed her. Sheriff Valenti showed the photos of a corpse with the silverhandprint to Liz, when he was questioning her. The photos were marked: Nov 16, 1959.
