Bront Autin was a member of the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order's Coalition for Progress. Autin was assigned to the Sanbra Sector Monitor, as part of the Art Group, working under Executive Director Kem Tija.
Autin sent Kem Tija a message about the Iyra sentientologist Tem Eliss and the impending publication of his book The University of Sanbra Guide to Intelligent Life. Autin recommended to Tija that Eliss be detained for questioning, and that the distribution of his manuscript be restricted. Eliss fled the University of Sanbra campus before being arrested.
