George Oliver is the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Orpheus Group projection firm; he also sits on the boards of Hewlett-Packard and the Owens-Corning Corporation.. Born in Canada, he made his fortune in the 1990s via wise investing. His wealth came in handy when he had a major heart attack and was cryogenically frozen. He was eventually revived and quickly discovered that, along with other Orpheus clients, he owned a major share of the company. After the sudden death of former CEO Bob Jackson, Oliver was made temporary CEO until Jack Tilton was hired. He is purely interested in Orpheus Group's finances and cares little for the scientific and spiritual ends of the business.

He disappeared, along with the rest of the board, when NextWorld attacked and destroyed Orpheus.
