November might not be a great guy, but he's certainly a "nice guy."
And he selects his specimens for similar attitudes. November doesn't see man as innately good, but following on that, he doesn't see the government as a way of correcting that moral failing. In fact, he doesn't see it as a failure at all. November believes man is self-involved, and desires material comfort. He feels attaining that comfort is what drives human greatness and thus becomes an end unto itself.
More, he feels that social contracts like other scientists endorse don't mean shit beyond reputation. If you have a good reputation, people may be more willing to work with you, but it's not really essential. He views human interaction as intrinsically competitive and views material success as an appropriate carrot to drive progress. As such he's not a fan of handouts. November complies with the minimum of Wittgenstein requirements for provenance of his specimens, but he's not looking to give handouts, and he's rather put out if his specimens seem to likely to do the same. In November block, unlike most other blocks, success is measured on the individual level rather than the group.
But that doesn't mean he's a complete jerk. November can be a fun guy. He likes to laugh, flirt with beautiful specimens, and drink. He doesn't get much of a chance to do those with his subjects, and unfortunately, within the parameters of the experiment, flirting's all he can do (Alfa on the other hand...). However, he keeps it superficial, and he's not all fun and games. November's competitive drive has left him with some insecurities that he defends viciously.
Outwardly he's a total egoist, and as long as you buy into that, you'll get along fine, but he's long been sensitive to criticism and a little insecure. He reflects this in others. Something in his past, he's not sharing what, has bred this defensiveness, which he channels into aggression if he's called on it. He does not brook resistance, complaints, or insult and more likely to blame the complainant than accept a problem.
You're not oppressed. You're oppressing him by calling him an oppressor. Oppressor.
November is perhaps generally closest to though far less shrewd than Mike. While Mike has worked his way to a high rank in politics, November is the eldest son of a ranking politician in the Galactic Alliance, thus comes from a life of privilege and opportunity.
PROUDEST MOMENT or WORST MOMENT: [CLASSIFIED]
WHAT POKEMON WOULD YOUR CHARACTER BE?: Meowth (Normal)
November is charismatic, talkative, materially focused, and a little prone to lashing out when annoyed. Perfect for Meowth. Plus, if you consider within the framework of the anime, he's a lot like Team Rocket's Meowth, in that he's perpetually seeking outside approval from a distant father figure who's more interested in someone else, Giovanni's Persian, or his brother-in-law.
HOW DOES YOUR CHARACTER REACT TO ARRIVING: NA
WHAT THREE ITEMS FROM HOME WOULD YOUR CHARACTER LIKE?: NA
FIGHTING SKILLS: 2
ENERGY PROJECTION: 1
OTHER POWERS: As all scientists, November has unlimited access to the compound and can add or restrict access to any subjects. He access to stores and resources and can potentially be convinced to part with them. He has the ability to alter his quarters. He is a high level telekinetic and capable of paralyzing subjects.
CANON POINT: NA
ARRIVAL ITEMS: NA
