@Jaegerwolf SATW countries and cultures are shown as one or two figures, usually a male and female. They represent the country as a whole. Citizens are usually shown as little gray lumps with faces, running around or being carried by a country persona. This scientist is an individual citizen, not important enough to be named and detailed. However, since he's interacting with the personae of the French people, he has to be shown with a human form. Otherwise you'd be seeing some tiny gray lump being smug to the giants of the civilizations, which would just be silly.
