Background:earning a degree in Historical Archeology, Simon began gaining the notice of the Foundation when he published a controversial essay titled 'How Information can and has Harmed Human Culture and Society', detailing various info-hazards throughout history and the threat they still can do if left in the eyes of the public. He joined at the age of 30 as a research assistant who shows an intense passion for documenting and containing SCP-Objects that could communicate. At the age of 37 he was promoted to Senior Researcher after several years of intense studying and research of SCP-Objects.

Mental Diagnosis: Simon Roth has shown signs of depression, chronic fatigue and insomnia. While these symptoms have been displayed through various personnel working at the Foundation and are regularly treated with medication and therapy sessions, Roth is to be given specific medication and is to be part of group therapies due to a off-site diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome.
While Simon avoids social interaction with staff and most people in general, he treats everyone with a strict sense of grace and respect as a method of making sure he doesn't offend anybody, which many co-workers describe as 'stiff' and 'cold'. His interviews and interrogation of D-class personnel as well as sentient objects show a intense level of empathy and understanding for subjects who are in pain or need comfort, but is known to treat them as hostile if it/they are not willing to cooperate. He has been described by interviewees as exhausting and rather stressful, as they feel a need to satisfy him so they will not make him angry.
he spends his free time alone and often reviewing containment strategies for SCP-Objects, and displays a high level of paranoia of information leaks that could cause a containment breach. He will continuously suggest improvements on containment procedures while drawing up strategies for how to handle objects that have broken containment.

Achievements
-Participated in approximately five(5) active containments on the field.
-Wrote various articles detailing the error of thinking of D-class as lab mice, criticizing that while D-class are necessary evil's, The Foundation is relying on the most bottom of the barrel of society so they can test the deadliest objects in existence and cautions of a future where society has improved to the point of there not being a significant supply of violent criminals or even political prisoners.
-Responsible for improving the containment procedures of a dozen objects when he found that those objects can transfer it's effects by simply infecting research notes taken of the objects while viewing them. Thus, these objects are now forbidden from having any note taking done whilst viewing them from any distance.

Side Notes:
-Simon Roth will not explain to others why he prefers to be called 'Teddy' , but has said that someone called him that before joining the Foundation.
-While Simon is not as communicative in a group setting, he is intensely on-focus when talking to a singular subject or person. He has confessed that he feels sympathy for D-class subjects as well as sentient objects, but will continually rebuff any suggestions from the staff of emotional attachments.
-His dormitory room is often decorated with posters of various science-fiction movies and video games, But Simon will not discuss them when asked by other staff.
