Throughout the Series Edit
In "The Monster and the Rocket", Sadavir Errinwright invites Korshunov to an opera. Afterwards, he convinces the Defense Minister to enjoy a 107-year-old scotch and talk openly about how the United Nations lost the bid for the protomolecule. As this proceeds, Korshunov finds that he is suffering from a heart attack. He had been dosed by Errinwright with an individual genetic fingerprint-selective toxin, previously banned under the Brussels Act. With the Minister deceased, Sadavir acquired the position of being the sole individual in the Sol system able to fund Jules-Pierre Mao's project.
