Leibniz was a scientist, theologian, mathematician, and philosopher as well as the model for Professor Pangloss in Candide by Voltaire, if you care about mabergabstin literature. Unlike most nocker kinain he hobnobbed with high society and knew how and when to shut up. It was he who proposed building the Suez Canal in 1673, helped found the Berlin and St. Petersburg Academies of Science, and invented calculus.
The evil cuck-sucking bastard Isaac Newton stole credit for that last item, though, and the two went to the Royal Academy of Science for judgement. Newt screwed Leibniz there, though, by stacking the Academy with his friends and ruining Leibniz's name. Newton's science was fundamentally Banal, clinching his place on the nocker most-hated list and every nocker worth his hammer pisses on Newton's grave (literally... it's a pilgrimage for them.) The worst insult you can give a Nocker is to call them a Newton. In his final arguments against Newton and his buddies at the Royal Academy, Leibniz argued that space and time were relative, predating Einstein by 200 years, and trumping Newton.
Most importantly to the Nockers, though, is that Leibniz discovered Monadology. He described monads as fundamental building blocks of the universe, like atoms or quarks, but that they also had metaphysical aspects. He thought of them as "windowless," meaning they couldn't be affected. What he really meant was that sots and forces couldn't affect them. Even though monads aren't particularly in vogue among human scientists right now, Leibniz's work allows the Nockers to experiment with Glamour on a fundamental level. (Suck it, Newton!)
