Noticing the anomalies of the stilled flight, Mendez summoned the airport authorities. Impatient with the federal agencies’ stalling, he demanded that the aircraft be opened immediately, as the passengers and crew were likely running out of oxygen. This proved to be unnecessary when a door of the airplane was suddenly opened.
Mendez’ nickname, “The Bishop,” was a nod to his responsibility for the safety of hundreds of aircraft passengers, who were referred to as “souls,” according to the old nautical parlance.

In the TV series, the name of Mendez’ character is changed to Peter Bishop, played by Venezuelan actor Andrew Divoff.
Peter Bishop speaks English and German, and apparently had ties in Berlin. He was the first to approach the plane carrying The Master, and gave the order to call the authorities. He cooperated with the CDC and assisted them in identifying the source of the sickness.
Bishop heard The Master whispering to him, and followed the whispers to a secluded corridor. The Master sprung up and attacked Bishop, and sucked the blood out of him before smashing his head in and flying away (in the novel, this death is inflicted on a female luggage handler, Lorenza).

Bishop O’Dowd High School’s Center for Environmental Studies (CES) is home to the school’s environmental science and engineering program. Designed to complement the Living Lab – a 4.5-acre hillside restoration site, ecological study area, and wildlife habitat at the perimeter of the campus – a new building and landscape elements tie the Living Lab to the campus core. The new academic building features two large laboratory classrooms, a faculty office and prep space, restrooms and storage. Sustainable building systems and materials – locally sourced, renewable building materials; roof-mounted photovoltaic panels for renewable power; on-site collection and treatment of storm water, and rainwater harvesting – are easily accessed to serve as teaching tools.
The roof extends well beyond the building envelope to shelter variously-sized patios accessible from the classrooms. The largest covered space functions as an outdoor classroom or a shelter for group gatherings with panoramic views of the Bay. Beyond the porch, wide steps open onto a generous amphitheater.
