The father of Triaxial, Rich Hewley works in the Whateley Academy Powers Testing Labs with Dr. Shandy. He is also a friend of Filbert Quintain and one of the two scientists who tested Phase and discovered that he was an extra-dimensional Warper.
A consummate workaholic, Richard will often forget to even eat when he's working, and tends to get others caught up in his enthusiasm.
In 2006, he and Dr. Aranis developed a new theory regarding mutant powers tapping into extra-dimensional power sources. Carmen found the paper they were writing in the school servers, and passed it on to Loophole, who developed the Transdimensional Hewley-Aranis Power Station from it.
Rather chubby, but with a friendly countenance and childlike enthusiasm for his work. He's usually wearing a lab coat, since he's usually in a lab. It's lapels are covered with the symbol pins of every campus Club and Cottage to show his solidarity with the students.
