Born a few billion years before Jesus, and the youngest of nine siblings,
Dr Pluto was thrown out of his family in 2006 for not following the rules.
He has been described as iconoclastic and weird, with a mildly eccentric orbit.
After graduating from the University of The Oort Cloud, Dr Pluto practised
his own brand of psychic medicine on Kepler-452b for nine millennia
before deciding on a change of career and moving to Earth
to run his own production company.
He made this decision after he became fascinated by the idea
of imprisoning millions of people using light and sound.
Having mined more than 5,000 tons of diamonds from the carboniferous
planet 55 Cancri e, Dr Pluto is one of the richest men in the universe,
sandwiched between Peter Fincham and Bill Gates on the Spacetimes Rich List.
Unfortunately he has not yet discovered a cost effective way of transporting the
diamonds the 41 light years separating 55 Cancri e from Earth,
so funded development will be required on a case-by-case basis.
Dr Pluto lives in a dark basement in London
with his wife Persephone - an occupational therapist,
and his three-headed dog.
