Evelyn Batton was a scientist and the SRPA's lead weapons researcher, Batton was responsible for developing the nuclear weapons. She was then tasked with locating and neutralizing the stolen nuclear weapons. Prof. Batton was a leading researcher in the weapons division of the ISA. She was chiefly responsible for the development of the self-guided tactical nuclear weapon codenamed 'Red Dust', as well as many other, less destructive weapons. Her work on Vekta was of vital importance in the arms race against the Axis, and the AJM considers her one of its greatest assets in the region. Some of Evelyn's research was years ahead of that of her colleagues – not just the ones on Vekta, but across all allied colonies.
