    Gregor Mendel (1822 – 1884) is the father of the modern genetics. He was a catholic priest who lived in the XIXth century in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

    He was a man of contemplation and of action: A good priest. He is handsome, charitable and dedicated to God. Erica would like to seduce him, but Hanna is there, a good friend for both of them… She helps Erica to become a spiritual woman and shows Mendel how to spread the knowledge of his discovery all over the world…
