"Language is an organism. The entity of language is born, germinates, hybrids itself, and through the earnestness of social and political forces, languages can even die."
―Arner Figgis[src]

Arner Figgis was an Issori linguist and anthropologist who advanced the controversial survival-regressive-isolationist theory, which alleged that colonists who survived a disaster might, if isolated from other colonists, be forced by necessity to abandon high technology and adopt characteristics of more primitive Human cultures. One possible example of Figgis' theory was the Bharhulai tribe on Socorro.

Arner Figgis served as the Chief Linguist for the University of Be'nal on Issor and achieved tenure at the Imperial Academy of Science and Methodology despite being non-human.
