Broekn Lirnedson was the first ever human to attempt to synthesize bookahol. He was born on October 12th, 2051 to an impoverished family of three children in the poverty-stricken city of Cerrup Ti'boz, in the desperately poor country of Ovth'plais, in the undeveloped country of Steil-in-Milive, on the forsaken wasteland of a planet that is Leho'dawaif, orbiting the dying sun of Romee.
Broekn Lirnedson had a terrible childhood, with abusive parents and unsupportive siblings. This was mainly because William Lirnedson (Broekn's father) would so often catch his son behind the lean-to consuming large quantities of bookahol, which was quite expensive in the collapsed economy of the planet. It was probably this which drove the young Broekn to experiment with synthesizing bookahol.
When Lirnedson graduated from (and this term is used loosely, due to there not being much of an education system on Leho'dawaif) university, he began experimenting with a device that would synthesize bookahol - an artificial writer if you will. These were the years when the Bookaholicator (as he called it) made the most progress.
On June 6th, 2109, Broekn Lirnedson was found dead in his hut, surrounded by machinery. He appeared to have been killed by one of the Bookaholicator's inspiration cartridges, found next to him. The confirmation of this came in the coroner's report, at which Lirnedson's surviving family took their revenge by dismantling the unfinished Bookaholicator with several very large axes. In the ruckus, William Lirnedson suffered a heart attack and died somewhere between the trampling of the typefaces and the cartridge bonfire.
The incident attracted the Multiversal Court's attention, which led to financial aid being provided to Leho'dawaif. Experts have studied the remaining schematics of the Bookaholicator and pronounced that with a little adjustments here and there, the machine could actually have produced decent-quality bookahol. A replica is now on display at the Museum for the History of Advanced Sciences.
