|"The Twin Factor"|
Dr. Cyrus Bortel is a brilliant but eccentric scientist, who has a talent for producing mind-altering technology. Some of his inventions have been called "ferociously unethical", and not surprisingly, this has made his work the target of Dr. Drakken more than once.
Although a gifted scientist, Dr. Cyrus Bortel's focus on his work was such that he habitually ignored ethical guidelines, and common sense to a certain extent. Upon completing his Moodulators, for example, his main concern was which government agency he would auction them off to, and not for increasing his security despite his last invention having been stolen upon completion. However, he was so confident in his work that he tested the Moodulator on himself beforehand.
Dr. Cyrus Bortel first requested Team Possible's help when Dr. Drakken and Shego stole his Neuro-compliance chips. Drakken used the chips on Shego and Kim Possible to obtain their total obedience, but Jim and Tim Possible used their handheld silicon phase disruptor to override the chips.
Dr. Bortel was again targeted by Drakken during Kim's Junior year. Drakken attempted to steal Bortel's Electron Magneto Accelerator, but Team Possible intervened. During the battle, Bortel's Moodulators landed on Kim and Shego, and Ron Stoppable accidentally dropped the Kimmunicator and picked up the Moodulator controller instead, though the oversights were not noticed at the time. Ron inadvertently activated the Moodulators, which caused Kim and Shego to react according to the controller's settings, which included sadness, anger, and love. Once Drakken discovered this, he attempted to take advantage of Kim's Moodulator and set them on anger, but ended up overloading it. Shego's Moodulator was presumably removed later, though when last seen it was still set on anger as she chased Drakken.
