Biography Edit

Background Edit

Sorrento-Gillis was elected the Secretary-General of the United Nations several years prior to the Eros incident, in the 24th century. Since then, he has been regulating all political and military affairs of the nation he commands.

Throughout the series Edit

In "The Big Empty", he is mentioned by title by Undersecretary [[Sadavir Errinwright (TV)|]] in a conversation with [[Chrisjen Avasarala (TV)|]] regarding gravity torture as an interrogation technique with regard to captive Heikki Sabong

In "Safe", he convenes a meeting where Errinwright argues for an escalation after Mars sends ships to stations all over the belt. Admiral Nguyễn supports Errinwright while Admiral Souther opposes. Sadavir's motivation was revealed in an earlier scene where [[Jules-Pierre Mao (TV)|]] insisted Sadavir makes sure Mars does not find anything there otherwise Mao threatens to cut access to his company's protomolecule research and development. When Esteban turns to ask her advice, Avasarala weighs the political consequences and elects to support Errinwright prompting the Secretary General to make the order to proceed.
