Soske Busk was one of the first Ardanans to accept a bio-engineered parasitic lifeform developed by their science to enhance individual mental and artistic abilities. After he had done so, Busk developed the anti-gravity engines needed to make his father's dream a reality. Busk became known as "The Engineer of Stratos," and the central component of this engine was also named Soske.
Busk was married to a woman named Miso. According to cultural specialist Carol Abramowitz, Busk gave Miso eleven paintings as a wedding gift, as well as a hand model of Stratos. Generations later, a descendant of Busk and Miso would be instrumental in the victory of the Troglytes over the Stratos City Dwellers in the Great Disruption. (CoE eBook: Signs from Heaven)
