Ralph Quist is the creator of the X-1000 chips. He saw his chips is greatest work until the chips had a flaw, they cannot stand an EMP, which caused the government to shut down the project, which greatly devastated Quist since the X-1000 was his finest work.
Later, Larry Benson brought the chips, not knowing what they are.
He doesn't like it when someone calls the chips artificial intelligence. He saw them as actual intelligence despite being artificial intelligence.
Ralph, still upset about the government shutting down the project, tells Larry and Irwin everything about the chips and he also tells them that its their problem.
He is portrayed as an arrogant and narcissistic; however, since his project was shut down, he still saw his work as the best. He believes that his projects have no flaws. His work are his masterpiece.
