Gupta is a geology field technician. Earlier in life he was a professional history re-enactor, but there wasn't much money in that. He has a strong math background, and his particular special talent is creation of custom algorithims for portable geoscanners to discern natural geoprocess soil strata from patterns matching strata specifically disturbed by tool digging. He has also been experimenting with algorithims for tracing subterranean fungus and bacteria growth.
Gupta owns very little, and tends to spend all his free credit on travel and tame adventures. He is a handball fan, and a pretty good player. Years of work out-of-doors and on digs has given him a pretty decent physique and good bush-sense.
Gupta has three prized possessions. All three are Human-design sweatshirts he wears at every opportunity. One is from Triad Institute of Technology. The second is too, but has his department's lettering across the back "Aquisition Service Specialist". The third is from his former school, Central Lossend Institute of Technology. All have large lettering.
