Roderick Campbell (earth-616) Bio
Campbell accepted a position as Moira's assistant at Muir Island, at the same time that the mutant hero team Excalibur was stationed there. He attempted to reach the island during a storm exacerbated by an attack by Siena Blaze, and nearly died. He was rescued and brought ashore by Phoenix, Rachel Summers. It was here that he discovered the existence of an alternate reality in which he became the mutant-hunting Ahab, creating and leading hordes of mutant trackers called "Hounds." Campbell became determined to prevent that future from ever happening.
Excalibur had captured the villain Spoor, one of Magneto's Acolytes, and Campbell built a special room to perform therapy on Spoor, who had the power to control another's mood. The room had built-in lasers to react to any hostile behaviour and Campbell used mood stabilizers while talking to Spoor so as to inhibit his mutant power. Nevertheless, Spoor eventually provoked Campbell into attacking him.
As a result, the room's weapons fired at the scientist, costing him a leg. Campbell continued to fear his perceived "destiny" of becoming Ahab occurring. He left Excalibur to work with Alistair Stuart at the Department as a mutant liaison officer. Rory hoped the benign position of helping mutants would prevent him from being harmed by mutants in a way that would trigger his alternate future self's rabid anti-mutant hatred. Campbell traded secrets of the deadly Legacy Virus to Sebastian Shaw of the Hellfire Club, claiming that he hoped that Shaw's greater resources would find a cure, but also receiving a state-of-the-art prosthetic leg in the bargain.
