"Councilor Nansen was tall, male, tanned, relaxed, impressive, convincing, trustworthy, and imbued with that rare charisma of leadership that made one both like and respect the person on sight.
Meina Gladstone feared and loathed the new Councilor at once. She felt as if this projection had been designed by AI experts to create just the response of trust and obedience she sensed others at the table already granting. And Nansen’s message, she feared, meant death."

The prototype, of course:

Fridtjof Wedel-Jarlsberg Nansen (Norwegian: [ˈfɾɪ̂tːjɔf ˈnɑ̀nsn̩]; 10 October 1861 – 13 May 1930) was a Norwegian explorer, scientist, diplomat, humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. [2]

In other words, an archetype that has earned universal trust has been chosen. And turned inside out.

"-Remove them to shelter on one of the labyrinthine worlds, - Nansen had replied, repeating the earlier plan of Councilor Albedo. - Five kilometers of rock would shield them from any effects of the widening deathwand ripples.
- If Hegemony citizens are properly shielded, there need be no casualties whatsoever.
The projection of Councilor Albedo folds his hands on the table.
- We have nine worlds with shelters which would hold billions, - he says softly.
- Now that you have joined Hyperion to the Protectorate, each of the labyrinthine worlds has farcaster capability. The Core can make arrangements to transfer populations directly to these underground shelters."

Nansen passports, originally and officially stateless persons passports, were internationally recognized refugee travel documents from 1922 to 1938, first issued by the League of Nations to stateless refugees. They quickly became known as "Nansen passports" for their promoter, the Norwegian statesman and polar explorer Fridtjof Nansen.
This document was developed in 1922 by Norwegian Fridtjof Nansen, Commissioner of the League of Nations for refugees. At first, it was issued to Russians, and later to other refugees who could not get a regular passport. It was introduced by a decision of a conference convened in Geneva. Persons who had a Nansen passport enjoyed the right to move in the countries participating in the conference, and they were not subject to the restrictions provided for stateless persons. By a decision of the League of Nations (July 12, 1924), about 320,000 Armenians who had escaped the 1915 genocide and dispersed to many countries received Nansen passports.
In 1942, this passport was recognized by the governments of 52 countries, and it became the first travel document for refugees.

The Nansen International Office for Refugees (French: Office International Nansen pour les Réfugiés) was an organization established in 1930 by the League of Nations and named after Fridtjof Nansen, soon after his death, which was internationally in charge of refugees from war areas between 1930 and 1939.
After the Nazis came to power in Germany in 1933, the situation with refugees in Europe became sharply more complicated. The anti-Semitic policy of the Nazi regime in Germany generated a mass flow of Jewish refugees. In the same year, 1935, the organization helped move to Paraguay about 4,000 people who fled the Saarland after this land, bordering France and Luxembourg, was transferred to Germany. However, in their new location, the refugees continued to experience difficulties due to the fact that they were treated with caution and were effectively excluded from economic life. Under these conditions, the Nansen organization continued to pay benefits to those in need in its new location. This money mainly came from a Fund of 250 thousand Norwegian crowns, which was transferred by F. Nansen. By 1938, about 800,000 refugees had been helped. The work of the Nansen organization was also facilitated by the adoption of the 1933 Convention on refugees by 14 countries of the League of Nations. The outbreak of the Spanish civil war led to a new wave of refugees in Europe. However, they were not supposed to be helped. So despite all the efforts of the Nansen organization, the problem of refugees was far from being solved. Nevertheless, in 1938, the Nansen international organization for refugees received the Nobel peace prize.
In 1933, the League of Nations established a Commission for refugees from Germany, which specifically addressed the issue of the Exodus of the Jewish population. In 1935, steps were taken to merge the German refugee Commission and the Nansen organization. As a result, a new high Commission for refugees was established under the League of Nations, gradually replacing both organizations. The newly created high Commission for refugees began its work on 1 January 1939 in London, and at the same time the Nansen organization was discontinued.

I would also remember the cannibalistic practice of the current crisis with the invasion of refugees in the European Union - but this is it...

I think that as a visual image of the "Adviser Nansen" is better suited to the photo of this lovely human - an outstanding chemist, Nobel prize laureate and ... one of the most famous mass murderers in history:

Fritz Haber (German: [ˈhaːbɐ]; 9 December 1868 – 29 January 1934) was a German chemist who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1918 for his invention of the Haber–Bosch process, a method used in industry to synthesize ammonia from nitrogen gas and hydrogen gas. This invention is of importance for the large-scale synthesis of fertilizers and explosives. The food production for half the world's current population involves this method for producing nitrogen fertilizers. Haber, along with Max Born, proposed the Born–Haber cycle as a method for evaluating the lattice energy of an ionic solid. The annual world production of synthetic nitrogen fertilizer is currently more than 100 million tons. The food base of half of the current world population is based on the Haber–Bosch process.
Haber played a key role in the development of chemical weapons during the First world war. Soon after the war began, he became head of the chemical Department of the war office. Part of his work included the development of gas masks with adsorbing filters. In addition to leading groups that developed the use of chlorine and other deadly trench warfare gases, Haber was always willing to personally assist in their use, despite their prohibition (the Hague Convention (1907), to which Germany signed). Future Nobel laureates James Frank, Gustav Hertz, and Otto Hahn took part in organizing the gas attack led by Haber during the Second Battle of Ypres on April 22, 1915. It is believed that everyone tried to find a poison gas suitable for destroying the enemy, but the Germans managed to do it first. The attack at Ypres was classified as a war crime as early as 1915.
In the 1920s, German scientists working at his Institute created the poison "Zyklon B" based on prussic acid applied to a porous inert carrier. Subsequently, the German Nazis used Zyklon B to poison prisoners in the gas chambers of Auschwitz and other death camps.

We will meet this person again in another topic...

"- ...Councilor Albedo probably wants to show us the weapon that will win the war.
- There is a better way, - Councilor Albedo tells Gladstone and the War Council.
The CEO turns toward the ambassador from the TechnoCore.
- There is a weapon that will eliminate the Ousters without harming Hegemony property. Or Ouster property, for that matter."

Do you want to see a portrait of the "Adviser Albedo"? Voila:

Now compare it to the "Architect" from "The Matrix". Such coincidences...

The name of Nansen inevitably brings to mind the name of another famous Norwegian. Most directly related to the idea of superweapons as the last argument against war, and the "Nobel peace prize".

Throughout his life, Alfred Nobel professed pacifist ideas. Like some other inventors (in particular, the Creator of the first machine gun, Richard Gatling), he believed that if the opponents will have a weapon with which they can instantly destroy each other, they will understand that nothing will benefit from the war and end the conflict. In 1892, an international Congress of pacifists met in Bern to establish an international court of arbitration. Nobel was also invited. Shortly before the Congress he wrote to Bertha: "It is possible and even necessary that countries unanimously commit themselves to attacking the one who violated the peace Treaty first. Only this will make war impossible and force countries to settle all disputes in an international arbitration court." His conversations on the sidelines of the Congress were held under the mottoes "Balance must be based on fear" and "My gunpowder factories will make wars useless sooner than all your congresses."

Alfred Bernhard Nobel (/noʊˈbɛl/ noh-BEL, Swedish: [ˈǎlfrɛd nʊˈbɛlː] (About this soundlisten); 21 October 1833 – 10 December 1896) was a Swedish chemist, engineer, inventor, businessman, and philanthropist. He held 355 different patents, dynamite being the most famous. The synthetic element nobelium was named after him.[1] He owned Bofors, which he redirected from its previous role as primarily an iron and steel producer to a major manufacturer of cannon and other armaments. Having read a premature obituary which condemned him for profiting from the sales of arms, he bequeathed his fortune to institute the Nobel Prize.

Alfred Nobel:
"My homeland is everywhere where I act, and I act everywhere."

"Where is the Core, Albedo? - interrupted Gladstone.
The Councilor’s smile did not falter.
- I’m sorry, M. Executive, what was the question?
- The TechnoCore, Where is it?
Albedo’s friendly face showed a slight puzzlement but no hostility, no visible emotion other than bemused helpfulness.
- You’re certainly aware, M. Executive, that it has been Core policy since the Secession not to reveal the location of the ... ah ... physical elements of the TechnoCore. In another sense, the Core is nowhere, since...
- Since you exist on the datumplane and datasphere consensual realities, - said Gladstone, voice flat. - Yes, I’ve heard that crap all of my life, Albedo. So did my father and his father before him. I’m asking a straight question now. Where is the TechnoCore?
The Councilor shook his head bemusedly, regretfully, as if he were an adult being asked for the thousandth time the child’s question Why is the sky blue, Daddy?
- M. Executive, it is simply not possible to answer that question in a way that would make sense in human three-dimensional coordinates. In a sense we ... the Core ... exist within the Web and beyond the Web. We swim in the datumplane reality which you call the datasphere, but as for the physical elements..."

Alfred Nobel:
"I would love to send all these guns and everything connected with them to hell. Hell is the best place to store them and at the same time the best place to test them."

"Two hundred and sixty-three singularity containment spheres connecting more than seventy-two million farcaster portals were destroyed within two point six seconds of one another. FORCE fleet units, deployed by Morpurgo under Executive Order and reacting to orders unsealed less than three minutes before, reacted promptly and professionally, destroying the fragile farcaster spheres by missile, lance, and plasma explosive.
Three seconds later, with the clouds of debris still expanding, the hundreds of FORCE spacecraft found themselves stranded, separated from each other and any other system by weeks or months via Hawking drive, and years of time-debt.
Thousands of people were caught in farcaster transit. Many died instantly, dismembered or torn in half. Many more suffered amputated limbs as the portals collapsed behind them or before them. Some simply disappeared.
This was the fate of the HS Stephen Hawking—precisely as planned—as both entrance and exit portals were expertly destroyed in the nanosecond of the ship’s translation. No part of the torchship survived in real space. Later tests showed conclusively that the so-called deathwand device was detonated in whatever passed for time and space in the strange Core geographies between the portals.
The effect was never known."

Alfred Nobel:
"On the day when two armies will be able to destroy each other in one second, all civilized Nations will recoil from the war in horror and disband their armies."

"- A difficult choice, gentlemen and ladies. But the device will work. The invasion will simply cease to exist in Hyperion space. Millions might be saved on the planet, and the effect on the Ouster invasion forces elsewhere would be significant. We know that their so-called Sister Swarms communicate by fatline. The termination of the first Swarm to invade Hegemony space - the Hyperion Swarm - may be the perfect deterrent.
Nansen shook his head again and looked around with an expression of almost paternal concern. There could be no simulating such pained sincerity.
- Hiroshima, - Gladstone had said, her only comment of the day. It had been said too softly for anyone except her aide Sedeptra to hear."
