Kim Kasim was a brilliant doctor and scientist in the field of Nanotechnology. Born during the Zeboim era in the year 6055 after the Eldridge's crash. He is considered the creator of the Nanotechnology later developed by Krelian and his mentor Shevat Sage Taura Melchior. Driven by his wife Elly's inability to give birth due to the expanding radioactive poisoning, he allied himself with the Ravine rebel group to sponsor his studies in Molecular Machinery, thus creating Emeralda, who he considered a surrogate daughter. He was assassinated alongside Elly by the Zeboim Militia in 6083, and Emeralda deconstructed and sealed on the orders of the Zeboim First Lady, Miang. Kim was the first (known) reincarnation of Abel the -Contact- and his wife Elly was the first (known) reincarnation of the original Elhaym.
