The Successor is a Qwatko scientist(called Dantey Norias)and was the second leader of the 'Hukuro' research. His Predecessor was the starter of the research in order of the Higher One. According to an artifact containing research data and logs he appears to be still alive at this very moment(read last line's). This is however in a cryogenic state for he wished to not age after he fled from the downcast of his kin by the Hukuro. The reason he fled was to find a solution for the destruction of the Hukuro wich they made so 'perfected' they couldn't destroy them anymore. With the help of machines he remains conscious in his cryo-pod to find a solution. This cryo-pod appears to be in a place called 'The Amethyst'.
