Instructor Park was Adria Fairingrove's mathematics instructor after Instructor Hillbrand. He was jealous of her ability to quickly solve complicated problems and to think about future applications. He was educated at the Carthaki University and thought that Adria had been poorly instructed before coming to him. Hillbrand called him a third-rater because he didn't have any ability or patrons. He sent a letter home to Adria's father one day when she solved all the problems he gave her without doing the intermediate steps, and she wasn't allowed to eat for the rest of that day or the next.
