Broderick Naismith was the Chief Public Relations Officer at the Braxiatel Collection. (PROSE: The Braxiatel Collection) He was described as Irving Braxiatel's right hand man. (PROSE: The Squire's Crystal)
His job involved creating publicity brochures and giving lectures at planets that encouraged the authorities to send their students and artefacts to the Braxiatel Collection.
According to Orst Gemayal, when the Fifth Axis invaded the Collection, Naismith tried to send a message of help or warning, but failed. He was the first person to be publicly executed by the Axis. When Bernice Summerfield heard of his death, she felt like she had lost a friend, though she had never met Naismith. (PROSE: The Fall)
