Eugene Buttons is an instructor at Whateley Academy. While he introduces himself to the students as Mr. Buttons, Dr. Quintain refers to him as Dr. Buttons, and Dr. Quintain isn't likely to use empty honorifics. And he did whip out fancy doohickeys to analyze Tennyo's means of flight.
- Mr. Buttons was a dumpy little man with big eyes and bigger glasses, with a balding pate ringed by dark brown hair. Despite the look of him, there was a steadiness about his hands and eyes that made me think he was an accomplished pilot in some way.
