Another mentor to Jenny, Binkley has served under TCF for even longer than General Gatner. His prior work was mostly focused on biological weapons, but he shifted to studying the fungus when the outbreak occurred.
Though a talented biologist, Binkley was overconfident in his presumed understanding of slag. He believed the cause to be a virus (which would later be found to be incorrect), and he was unaware of its mutation capacity. This led to his demise on base Delta.
